Second generation

The Skin 2 is the second generation of our legendary single-surface wing, now certified. Designed to bridge the gap between speedflying mini-wings and conventional paragliders, the new Skin 2 is the right choice for pilots looking for an agile and versatile wing, for any adventure imaginable.

With the same performance and lightness as its predecessor, this new model offers more stability and durability, thanks to its reinforced architecture and the incorporation of semi-light materials. 

The improved accessibility and the high level of comfort during each phase of the flight mark the difference between the Skin 2 and its predecessor. During take-off the sail inflates by itself and rises quickly and effortlessly above the pilot's head. Because the wing is single-surface, only a short take-off run is needed, making it possible to take off from peaks or narrow spaces, which would be impossible with a conventional paraglider. 

In-flight

In flight, the wing displays its consistency and stability thanks to several factors. With a hybrid design, six small closed cells offer a more compact and consistent structure that reduces the vibration of the previous model; also the optimised distribution of the lines has improved the load distribution and therefore minimising inertia. The result is a more manageable wing with which the pilot is able to manoeuvre and correct actively and very accurately.
However, the most improved aspect has been the incorporation of the trimmer system, which now allows perfect speed retention for a smoother roundout. The accessible character of Skin 2 is most obvious during the landing, when the pilot makes contact with the ground in a smooth and absolutely controlled manner. 

The durability of the wing has also been a key aspect during the design of the new Skin 2. For this reason, the Skin 2 incorporates 32g/m² Porcher fabric, with 38g/m² for the leading edge, which together with the light and undeformable Nitinol rods, give the sail excellent durability with little weight. For better line protection, sheathed Aramid lines are used for the main lines and the upper gallery lines are unsheathed to ensure greater lightness. All lines are attached to highly reinforced ribs. 
 

The Skin 2 is born to accompany you faithfully throughout all your adventures, making it feel like your second skin.
