Advance Alpha 6

The latest incarnation of Advance's EN A Alpha, The ALPHA 6 benefits from a newly conceived lining design, with fewer support points and lines.

This simple array is easy to see and quick to sort. The ALPHA 6 is straightforward to takeoff and fly.

Weight is minimal, achieved by a sophisticated internal structure and state-of-the-art construction materials.

Only three line levels and two gallery floors. Simpler and easier to see makes short work of line sorting.

The completely revised ALPHA6 line concept results in 20% fewer line meters and 35 % fewer line items. Its hardly necessary to point out that this considerable reduction in total line length clearly improves glide performance at trim speed and especially when accelerated.

Modern “Air Scoop Technology’ at the leading edge now applies to the ALPHA 6. Combined with the typical ADVANCE semi-circular intakes, this feature results in a significantly lower separation point with clearly progressive brake loading. Brake travel is 15 % longer than the ALPHA 5 value, so passive safety is enhanced.

The ALPHA 6 risers have a new "Easy Connect System", which helps the pilot hook in correctly by using a coloured marking system. This reduces the possibility of the nervous beginner connecting a twisted riser, or attaching the risers to the wrong carabiners.

For maximum compatibility among ADVANCE products the same coloured markings will also apply, in future, to all ADVANCE harness suspension points.

Big ears are made easy. The ALPHA 6 outer A-line has its own easily reachable riser, making it easy to pull effective big ears.

Taking off with both A-risers in hand is also simplified by the “Quick-Snap” magnet system which holds them together on the ground.

Line sorting remains child’s play. After pull up the risers separate and take up their flying position.
