The first thing you will notice under the Artik 4 is the softer inflation followed by the capacity for the glider to take off serenely.
The profile has also been modified and includes the RAM Air Intake technology to keep the glider steady in any situation. Additionally, it transmits clear information to the pilot to let him focus on the pleasure of flying.
With its superb gliding even when fully accelerated, the Artik 4's efficiency could be compared to an EN D glider but yet, with the handling abilities as an EN C wing.
Piloting it is intuitive in all sense; allowing the pilot to make instant corrective decisions even in strong thermal conditions.
When pushed out, the speedbar is an efficient implement for a smooth, stable and yet strong acceleration throughout the whole travel range and hence producing an excellent sink rate as a result. The glider turns more precisely and effortlessly. Having it all under control you can then, make better decisions to truly enjoy the flight.
A whooping 8,77% in weight reduction demonstrates the effort and accomplishment made to reduce the glider inner bulk and profile resulting, more performance, enhanced safety and comfort.

Flying with the Artik4 was a pleasure! The glider's design and construction gave me a great sense of self-assurance and safety from the start! On takeoff the Artik 4 feels as light as mountain wings! In the air you can easily feel the air activity! Handling is precises and gives the pilot a lot of confidence. You can easily exploit weak thermals with agility! In stronger conditions, you will discover the Artik 4's power and stability assets for pure flying enjoyment!

The Artik 4 is an absolute dream to fly, with very easy inflation using just a single A-line from either side, quick to rise but damped enough to sit comfortably overhead and very pitch stable on the ground and in flight. The speedbar is smooth and steady throughout the range with an excellent sink rate. The turn feels sharp and precise resisting roll well, to give a nice efficient flat turn whereas, in "fun" mode with aggressive large brake input the Artik 4 will roll up making it a joy to pull big wingovers. An accessible En C glider with superb handling and performance the Artik 4.

After three flights totalling nearly 15 hours on the Artik 4, I can truly say that I am in love with this glider. It seems to "sniff out" thermal edges and bites into them, giving me brilliant feedback and climbing phenomenally well. In endured some fairly rough conditions during some flights and I felt that the wing was solid above me. It performs well while using speedbar and the speed on glide is refreshingly fast.
