After more than two years of practical development the much-anticipated REVO2 is here.
The popularity of the first Revolution set a very high bench mark, creating a successor for this classic Reflex wing has not been easy!
The REVO2 benefits from a whole new design makeover. It is our answer for both pilots and training centres, who have been asking for the ultimate beginner / intermediate reflex wing.
With EN B certification the REVO2 is the first true reflex glider to bridge the vital gap of a wing that a pilot can easily learn to fly on and that first favourite glider that allows a safe, fun and versatile pilot progression over several years.
Note- CLE means "composite leading edge" - the word 'composite' is used to describe combining different types of material to enhance their mechanical properties and to make a new material.
- Easy to launch, quick to take off in short distances. (CLE Leading edge system)
- Enhanced roll or directional stability, both during launch and in flight.
- Excellent handling, smooth and yet reactive over a forgiving range of brake travel.
- Super slow speed flight capability for easy, short landings and thermal flight.
- Legendary 'unmatched' pitch positive Reflex wing stability on fast trim.
- Simple uncluttered risers and control systems.
- New trimmer locking system, with adjustable sliding brake keepers and handle size.
- New trimmer & speed bar system with 70% of movement on the trimmers and only 30% on the bar. Ball bearing pulleys give improved smoother bar operation.
- 3.25 times speed range performance (20-65kph variable with wing loading).
- The highest quality from the Paramania design / Gin manufacturing.
Over the last few years in conjunction with Gin gliders, Paramania have developed this system. It is now incorporated into most of our range of gliders - CLE enhances the launching and performance by cleaning up the leading edge whilst spring opening intakes and reducing weight.
Characteristics :: Icaristics
When you first get the Revo2 out of the bag and inflate it, the word that immediately comes to mind is ‘easy’!
As you lay it out, the large cell openings with CLE supported leading edge present themselves to the air, almost ready to breath. Even in light or variable winds the wing comes up with minimum effort, stops and stabilizes above your head, as if waiting for you to move forward!
When launching, it quickly lifts you clear of the ground with minimum effort
and almost no oscillating tendencies
(vital when taking off heavily loaded or with a trike unit).
Once in the air it is so comfortable that you soon forget that there is a wing flying above your head!
Benefiting from Mike Campbell-Jones's latest “deep” Reflex wing section, It simply absorbs turbulence like no other reflex wing we have made.
The risers and controls have been logically thought through, whilst keeping simplicity as the main priority we have added several interesting new features.
The Revo2 flies as if on rails
. It has plenty of pitch and roll stability. Given its beginner wing disguise, on fast trim it is a pure distance eater. Pilots can relax and go
, no need to hold brakes, apart from occasional tip steering course adjustments. Others on paragliding type wings and even the average reflex wing are left in its wake!
Pulling the trimmers down; you notice slow trim is split into two positions ‘Slow’
and 'Super Slow’
perfect for low and slow flight or forgiving Paraglider-like landings. The combination of good sink rate and the wing’s tight turning radius, enable pilots to practice Paragliding skills (even without power) thermal flying and soaring in light conditions is now easy.
The handling is sublime anywhere within the slow trim range.
Responsive and smooth, giving coordinated positive turns, even against powerful engine/propellor torque effects.
The controls feel light, yet with enough feedback to keep the pilot informed.
The length of brake travel is just right
, comfortable to fly yet forgiving of heavier handed pilots.
True Reflex Technology :: 100% pitch positive wing section
The Revo2 has the most pitch positive profile we have designed since the very first Reflex wing! With more stability at speed then any other Reflex wing curently on the market today!
