  • Product description

    Apollo 2 light is redesigned Apollo 2 with lightweight support and a modified internal structure. Our aim was to increase the performance while reducing the weight and drag of the glider. How did we do it? By employing a proven mix of lightweight materials and designing thinner lines in the top and middle galleries.

    Apollo 2 light is a performance paraglider from our light line series, ideal for XC and hike&fly adventures.

    It is a very compact and safe wing weighing only 3.55 kg in medium size. With Apollo 2 light, you can fully enjoy your air adventures: it features a very easy take-off, highly efficient thermalling, and its light canopy enhances comfort and performance. During long-distance flights, you can reach  higher speeds and minimum sink.
    Together with Skylighter 4 harness, they make a perfect team for long flights.

    The main distinctive features are:

    • even higher comfort, safety, efficiency and performance of the glider
    • high passive safety level
    • upgraded lightweight materials for good weight to durability ratio
    • very easy take-off
    • LEO (Leading Edge Optimization) design makes the composite nose highly structured and formed, but still light, and allows pilots easy take-offs    
    • the Triple 3D cut ensures a clean and highly efficient profile with excellent internal pressure values throughout the speed range that remains simple to launch,  highly durable and yet easy to pack    
    • three riser  helps pilots sort out the lines and makes the pre-flight check faster and easier    
    • Hypalon & Nylon rod nose construction minimizes tendencies to collapses

    At Sky, we believe that constant progress and development make our products what they are. Your needs help us to move forward and keep improving. And that‘s how Apollo 2 light was designed – we combined all the good features from Apollo 2, we modified its internal structure, used lighter materials and thinned the lines in the top and middle galleries.
    And here it is: Apollo 2 light is a glider with lower weight, lower drag, and higher performance. Designed to be flown fast, but still highly safe and comfortable.
