U-Turn Emotion 3: EN A

U-Turn Emotion 3

U-Turn have recently released a high-performing and “very safe” EN-A school wing, called the Emotion 3.

While they say their priority was its passive safety, they were proud to share news of Benjamin Becker’s 200km triangle on one, demonstrating that safety does not have to come at the expense of performance.

Calling it “the perfect wing for beginners”, U-Turn say the Emotion 3 is quick to inflate and easy to launch. They add that it has nice direct handling, thermals like a dream and is “unruffled” by turbulent air.

The wing has 36 cells and a flat aspect ratio of 5, and is built using Dokdo 30 and 20 cloth which they say has good abrasion resistance. A simple line layout means setting up on launch is easy, and the risers are colour-co-ordinated to match U-Turn’s RX3 harness.

The Emotion 3 is available in six sizes (XS to XL, covering 50-155kg all-up across the range) and three colours.
