Spiruline GT2. 100% fun oriented, the GT is for pilots looking for simplicity.
Little Cloud’s Spiruline GT2 is out, It’s all about Simplicity and Fun!
A small and compact wing, The GT2 has sharp, precise handling and a good upwind glide, offers a few extra kilometres per hour compared to a standard paraglider. It has short lines and a small turning radius, allowing it to core very efficiently in small thermals.
The GT2 is safe and well-pressured with long brake travel of 70cm, the last 10cm of which are heavy to avoid inadvertent stalls. Its performance is better than the GT, with a slightly higher aspect ratio (4.7 vs 4.5), optimised cell widths and a lower line consumption.
New V-rib construction and larger cross vents have allowed 200-300g to be shaved from the weight – the GT2 weighs 3.4kg to 3.9kg. It’s made from Dominico’s 35g Dokdo cloth which has good durability.
The GT2 is available in multiple sizes each size having an optimum, extended and a paramotor weight range. In the ‘optimum’ range the wing is safe and forgiving, suitable for teaching in schools. It’s load tested only, but LC suggest it’s the equivalent of a low EN B in this sector of the weight range. The more you load it, the faster it will fly and the sharper its handling.
The “GT” has been tested many hours by Gabi, our Girly ambassador, to make it the ideal glider for women (50 till 70kg). The trimming has been set up slightly faster to emphasize the low part of the all up weight. The GT (18 and 20) even lowly loaded keeps a nice speed. In this weight range, the GT is very accessible and can be used teaching at schools (EN B low). VS a paraglider, the GT will have a sharper and more precise handling, an interesting upwind glide and few km/h more. The turning radius will be smaller allowing to core very efficiently in small thermals. For XC, no worries, the Spiruline GT2 will show some very good capacity, offering its pilot peace of mind thanks to its pitch less, glide upwind and moderate air mass no problem. Its very efficiency in light conditions. The take off are shorts and still not much pulling in stronger wind, thanks to the short lines.
Light Weight Version for the aficionados which helps saving weight and packing volume.
