A Touch of magic
- The ingredients are classically simple, even unremarkable: 59 cells, A.R. 6, 3 main lines, well-proven profile. Yet the finished dish is unexpectedly exquisite.
To the top!
- Perhaps the most notable characteristic of the Explorer 2 is the way the refined yet compact handling translates into a superior climbing experience. The wing bites enthusiastically into thermals, yet settles quickly overhead. Brake pressures are light yet progressive, giving you just enough information to effortlessly maximise your climb.
improved climbing ability in all conditions
improved glide performance
exemplary pitch stability for even better take-off characteristics and collapse resistance
smart riser for improved C riser control
increased maximum speed (2cm longer travel)
greater compressibility thanks to nitinol reinforcements
(Still) in a class of its own
- Thanks to the slight increase in surface area and other gains in aerodynamic efficiency, the Explorer 2’s glide performance surpasses that of its predecessor.
Improved speed system
- The Explorer 2 features a new smart riser with a control toggle and a Harken pulley for extra smooth operation. Push half bar, take the riser and enjoy the view! The Explorer 2 also has an extra 2cm of speed bar travel for increased max speed.
An Unflappable character
The Explorer 2 has innate pitch stability. Even on windier take-offs, the wing comes up progressively and waits obediently above your head. When conditions get rowdy, it’s more well behaved than ever.
Strategic mix of new formula plastic rods and Nitinol (Nickel titanium) wire for dimensional stability, performance and more compact packing
3 risers / 3 lines spanwise
Unsheathed aramid lines with optimized diameters
Speed system with C riser steering
Gathering (reefing) system and mini ribs on the trailing edge
