PI 2

PI 2 - Light Versatility

Enjoy the freedom and versatility – in the air and on the ground. The new PI 2 is one of the lightest small-packed-volume serial wings on the market and, with the choice of four sizes - each with three weight ranges – is also one of the most versatile paragliders available today. Equally at home in thermals, for Hike&Fly or as a mini wing: with the new PI 2 it’s you who decides.

One wing, many uses

The PI 2 comes in four sizes - 16, 19, 23 and 27. Each size features three different takeoff weight (weight range) subdivisions, and the resulting variety of wing loadings call for different piloting styles and levels.

 

Thermik

Compact, light, excellent climbing characteristics with maximum safety: In its Thermal Range the PI 2’s quiet and pitch-stable canopy is very comfortable to fly, and its small packed dimensions make it suitable for travel. The 23 and 27 version is also recommended as a first light glider. The reduced line set up gives the PI 2 impressive performance.

 

Hike & fly

Easy to carry, easy to prepare, easy to handle: The Hike & Fly Range is directed at the pleasure-seeking pilot and hiker who wants to concentrate on what’s important in life - enjoying time spent in the mountains. “Air Scoop Technology” and semicircular intakes work together in this weight range to give the PI 2 a high degree of passive safety with agreeable flight characteristics.

 

MiniWing

Minimum weight and maximum wing loading: In its Miniwing Range the PI 2 conveys the Actionwing’s sense of speed. Pure dynamics alone can provide maximum flying fun; then we can add high-speed contour chasing, strong wind soaring or an ultralight descent device for the Alpinist: the mini wing's very precise and concise handling needs a careful expert who is also an experienced pilot, naturally.

 

The table shows the EN/LTF A certification as “Beginner”, EN/LTF B certification as “Occasional” (Leisure) and the EN/LTF C level as “Expert”.
