After the 3S “Symphony” cabin, LEITNER ropeways now presents its “little sister”: The Symphony 10 offers excellent performance in terms of space, comfort and experience. Complementing the Diamond model, it creates an attractive premium offering in the 10-passenger gondola segment. The new cabin was premièred in the “Piz Seteur” 10-passenger gondola lift in Val Gardena.
What is new in the Symphony 10 is primarily the design, which offers guests more convenience from when they enter the gondola until they leave it. The first comfort boost is the much wider entryway compared with the Diamond Series 10-passenger gondola. The sliding doors also ensure that passengers near the doors are no longer bothered by the mechanism when opening. The panorama windows that extend all the way to the roof offer the best possible all-round view, giving a particularly open ride experience.
While the somewhat restrictive feeling in gondolas has long been a thing of the past, the Symphony 10 sets new standards as a premium model. LEITNER ropeways made the seats even wider and increased the spacing between the individual seats, enhancing individual comfort. The new gondola design makes this added space possible: It is wider at the top, making it more spacious and creating additional personal space. Redesigning the vertical support structures facilitated optimal positioning of the interior fittings like benches and hand grips. The flatter support structures allow LED strips to be used for lighting the gondola’s contours.
Maximizing comfort inside, unrivaled design outside: The main frame and external profile are based on the Pininfarina design of the Symphony gondola, which still marks a real quantum leap in quality and design standards on the ropeway market. In keeping with the design, the premium cabin features automotive-style seats in genuine leather.
The comprehensively re-worked 2S package will – subject to receiving authorization and public financial commitment – celebrate its launch on the Nebelhorn in Oberstdorf. The aerial tramway in operation since 1977 will be replaced by a LEITNER ropeways bi-cable unidirectional ropeway. The positioning of the installation and its all-year use speak clearly in favor of this technology. On the one hand, the location of the valley station in the center of the village calls for particularly quiet operation. On the other hand, the individual personalization options make the unique 2S offering stand out.
The ropeway on the Nebelhorn will be equipped with Symphony 10 cabins. In addition to significantly improving comfort, long waiting times will also be cut down in future. Thanks to the Symphony cabins designed by Pininfarina, guests will experience a new feeling of convenience from the moment they step into the cabin. The wide boarding area, sliding doors and maximum all-round view through panorama glazing all contribute to this.
