The Parus² is our fully redesigned tandem glider with shark nose technology. Built with the latest and most sophisticated material on the market to date, the Techfiber STA15. Resulting in extremely easy starting and landing behaviour and benchmark handling characteristics.

WHO IS IT FOR

Due to its extremely easy handling and predictable flight characteristic, the Parus² is suitable for all pilots who want to use it either commercially or just for flying with family and friends.
For freestyle or sportive oriented pilots, the Parus2 in size 35,5 m² offers handling characteristics which are as close as possible to a solo glider.

THE CHARACTERISTICS

With 7.2 kg for the 41.5 m² and 6.5 kg for the 35.5 m² glider, we do offer one of the lightest tandem gliders available on the market. Take off behaviours are just superb and handling characteristics shows a lighter and more agile canopy. Another big improvement are the new Line-types. Around 35% of drag reduction has been achieved with thinner Dyneema lines. This results into a better glide ratio and a higher top speed. Due to new leading-edge Mylar reinforcements and 40 additional Mini-Ribs along the Top-Sail, the glider feels even more precise and indicates thermals better.
The small Parus2 with 35.5m² has been developed for Pilots looking for the ultimate fun glider up to 180kg take-off weight. The handling is outstanding for a tandem glider.
The 41.5 m² Parus² in contrast has been tweaked to be the best companion for professional Tandem pilots. With a take-off range from 130 kg to 230 kg and its light but durable material, the glider will fulfil all wishes.
