We listened carefully to pilots and their needs when they fly EN B glider. We also noted what people liked about APOLLO; they all agreed this is very comfortable wing to fly, they loved the spirit, they enjoy thermal flights and coring the rough thermals. They all asked even for higher performance and more stability.
And we did it. APOLLO 2 is more stable, it uses different production technologies to improve performance and deliver sporty feeling and a little bit more performance. Just contact the designing team to learn more. The glider was designed by Alexandre Paux, and plenty of improvements during the demanding testing was made by a Turkish national aerobatics champion Artoosh Ghofoorian.
Each glider is delivered with:
EYRIE 2 L backpack. Well-cushioned back, shoulder and waist parts for more comfort. Conveniently placed pockets. Internal retaining strap.
