High Adventure's new XC brake handle features an ergonomically shaped plastic bar right below the brake line knot and a large, padded brake loop.
The plastic bar enables long-term energy-saving flying as the forearm does not need to be bent and thus put in a mechanically inefficient and tiring position for thermaling and good glider control. When steering using the plastic bar, the brake loop remains around the wrist. When flying accelerated, the hand slips into the loop and encourages a clean gliding position of the arms while ensuring that immediate active flying is available if necessary. Even with thick gloves, slipping out of the loops is easily possible at any time.
Moreover, the XC brake handles are designed in such a way that they cannot get caught in the lines when not is use or during ground handling. Retrofitting at any glider is is easily possible.
