The Hang Glider Alto

The new intermediate wing by Icaro 2000 flies… “HIGH”

Designed by world champions Manfred Ruhmer and Christian Ciech, this advanced intermediate glider is the evolution of the Orbiter 2.
The target that we set for this new intermediate wing was to optimize simplicity of handling in all phases of flight, without penalizing performance.

This hang glider is the right choice for pilots:

  • who prefer a glider that is lighter, more stable and easier to handle
  • who don’t need a competition glider for their recreational flying, but still expect good performance.
