BRONTES - performed glider in DHV 2 category.
The name BRONTES comes from ancient Greek “THUNDER”. When developing this glider we tried to merge the characteristics of both the FIDES and the ATIS.
We came up with a glider that offers the best qualities of both previous wings, and also extends the performance to the limit of the DHV 2 category.
While we were seeking limits of its performance, and flight dynamics, we remained firmly focused on making a glider that was both safe and a real pleasure to fly.
We believe that we have managed to develop a wing with outstanding performance, maximum stability and sensitive handling. The BRONTES responds readily to pilot input; its response is precise and measured.
The BRONTES has also passed tests for flying with a paramotor and is a big hit for those after maximum performance and manoeuvrability. The BRONTES is the ideal choice for competition flying or paramotoring.
Each glider is delivered with:
- free Porter bag
- free SKY TEAM T-shirt
