Moyes Litespeed RS Hang Glider
Possibly the most winning competition hang glider out there. Moyes continues to improve each generation of the Litespeed since it’s original design in 2000.
Besides owning a rocketship, if you fly a Moyes in Australia or USA, you’ll have a big support-network of friendly pilots, and dealers who can help you with parts and service.
Please choose from the options below to place your Moyes Litespeed RS order.
Note: The Warren Windsports Online Store prices have been discounted to be aligned with the 2012 offer from Moyes. -including tuning certicates and bonuses.
You can read more about the Litespeed RS and the options available below. If you have any questions, please contact us.
Product Availability and Delivery:
A custom Moyes Litespeed RS is typically completed in 2-4 weeks. If you are interested, please give us an email to see what the current build-time is.
This latest evolution of the Moyes Litespeed hang gliders line with its higher aspect ratio is combined with changes to the sail design and cut that produce excellent handling characteristics when launching, landing and thermaling.
The Moyes Litespeed RS is a high performance competition class hang glider. Its high strength carbon fibre crossbar, high leverage variable geometry setup, inboard and outboard aluminum or carbon fibre sprogs make for a race-ready topless? glider. This internal structure is combined with a tight wrinkle-free sail with minimum twist.
Curt's Pro Tip:
I'll be honest, I have a sweet spot for the various Litespeed models, having flown them around the world in crowded gaggles, lee-side rotor, behind cars and microlights, and to many personal bests. The Litespeed has never let me down since my first LS in 2000. Moyes Gliders have been extremely supportive, like family, to their clients and pilots, ensuring they are flying safe hang gliders that perform.
Notes on the S model vs. the RS Litespeed hang gliders:
Comparing the Moyes S model Litespeed vs. the RS Litespeed:
Basically, the RS is the S's taller/slimmer cousin. -Or, in techy jargon, the RS is a slightly higher aspect--ratio design. The S model handles slightly easier, with less span and weight on the tips. The slight handling advantage of the S, gives a slight advantage to the RS on performance (mostly glide ratio). Although pilots who are flying comps, and who are staying current in a topless? glider don't seem to complain about the slight handling difference and often choose the RS.
A reason to possibly choose the S model is that it accommodates different weight ranges. The S model has the size 3 for the featherweights, and size 5 for big/tall. Note, these S models GO! Both the S and RS models are flown by world-class competitors. View the suggested weight ranges in the specificatons below. Any other Q's, feel free to contact us.
Ok, for Options....You can go pretty crazy with carbon options, really depending on your budget.
Moyes Gliders has created awesome 3 Upgrade Package options, and I recommend COMP Package, which offers the BEST bang-for-your-buck:
- Carbon Outboard Leading Edges - Rear Section (the section at the tips)
- Carbon Dive Struts (Sprogs)
- Zoom Frame with Carbon Speedbar
- The idea it to keep the weight down at the tips, which helps with the light handling / controls. The advantages of the Carbon Bar option is 1) clean through the air 2) ergonomic 3) comfy on the hands.
Keep in mind, the Moyes Boys will be able to provide plenty more Pro Tips at the next flying event/comp. - That's a deal-closer, if you ask me.
