Welcome to the Arai Design Web site!
Arai Design is committed to bringing footlaunched pilots the best
performing instrumentation on the market. We were the first to bring
Speed-to-Fly (S2F) instrumentation to hang gliding and paragliding,
and we continue to have the best instrument available for Cross
Country flying, either for recreation or competition. It has the most
useful features because it is designed by a serious competition pilot
for his own use with input from some of the best pilots in the World
(5 of 6 of the '93 Worlds Gold Medal team.) No other S2F vario has
close to the competition record in the USA that the Tangent does. We
feel that this is because serious pilots want the best instrument.
These pilots can choose any glider or instrument they want, and they
have chosen the Tangent.
If you're wondering whether the claims and hype around the Tangent
are true, you should consider the following questions:
If you could answer yes to two of those questions you have eliminated
most variometers. If you answered yes to all of them, then you own a
- Does the designer of your instrument still fly?
- Does he log over 1000 cross country miles a year?
- Does he fly in competitions?
- Is he a four time National Champion using his instrument?
These questions are important because they point to two important
factors which are quite likely to influence the final product:
So perhaps some of the hype has some merit.
- The experience required to design a useful instrument.
- The designer's personal need for a useful & reliable
