Optic 2 is a three-row cross-country/recreational paraglider of 5,50 aspect ratio and 51 cells. It is recommended for pilots who want to fly a lot and grow, capitalizing on its outstanding performance. The paraglider offers EN/LTF B class safety, confirmed by according certificates.
The canopy structure is reinforced with rigid rods (Flexi Edge Technology) as well as mini-ribs on the trailing edge, truly representing, smoothing and stabilizing the airfoil at all speeds. Another solution improving both the aerodynamics and stability is the Shark Nose. Stabilo has been modified too. All these technologies come from the racing canopies and combined with 3-row rigging give the paraglider large passive safety margin and exceptional aerodynamic performance.
The airfoil used in Optic 2 has some reflex traits. The wing is tuck-resistant, comes up easily and is perfectly steerable. Worth a special praise is its great lateral and longitudinal stability.
As in other our paragliders, the risers of the Optic constitute a complete, comfortable and carefully thought out control panel, where each instrument is placed exactly where it should be and works as it should. Modern risers of 20 mm width feature ball-bearing SmartPulleys, made on special order along with our indigenous design. Versatile and comfortable ACT brakes with neodymium magnets can be adjusted to individual preferences.
As a result, you got the wing that will easily float in a slightest lift, and covering long distances in typical turbulence of a thermally active day won’t be a problem. Speed-system operation is safe and comfortable even in rough air. Optic2 has lots of speed, great deal of lift, and In generally simply wants to fly – so don’t be selfish and take it with you for a long XC 😉
New colour schemes are based on our standard four-elements palette and have been designed as always by Włodzimierz Bykowski.
Optic 2 is manufactured under new technology, employing precision of the laser cutter. All stages of production are completed in Poland under the strict supervision of the designer himself, thus ensuring highest European quality.
Design solutions, technologies and other functionalities are listed below in the Technologies section.
Optic 2 has already passed the EN/LTF B category tests, as well as the load test.
Rozwiązania konstrukcyjne, technologie i inne funkcjonalności wymienione są poniżej w sekcji Technologie.
SN - Shark-nose
Airtakes designed and executed in Shark-nose technology meaning specific, concave shape of the reinforced profile area at its leading edge (the name comes form the very shape, reminding shark’s nose).See more
DOA - Dudek Optimized Airfoil
Dudek Optimized Airfoil It incorporates all our experiences stemming form previous designs and as a special feature is optimized with dedicated engineering software.See more
CSG - Canopy Shape Guard
CSG – Canopy Shape Guard – is our unique system controlling canopy coherence. It is because of this system that our wings are equally tensioned, smooth, stable and… simply remarkable.See more
LR - Laser Technology
Capabilities of the laser cutter allow for serial cutting of complicated shape narrow elements in large numbers, their optimal placing in relation to structure of the textile and highest possible precision of cut.See more
FET - Flexi Edge Technology
The leading edge is closed to the airflow, and its precise shape is kept with laminated cloth reinforcements, incorporating synthetic rods. The rods make the leading edge stiffer and smoother, bringing improvements in many areas – from easier inflation, through stiffening the canopy in flight to improved general airflow.See more
MR - Mini-Ribs
Mini ribs speak for themselves – they are additionally introduced in the trailing edge between main ribs. Their task is to decrease ballooning (expanding and deformation of the cells) in this vital area af the aerofoil.
Keeping the rear part in shape reduces the drag induced behind trailing edge, thus improving general airflow and increasing airspeed.See more
ACS - Auto Cleaning Slots
Dedicated slots automatically removing dirt from the wing tips.See more
3L - Three-liner
Thanks to introduction of stiffening rods (Flexi Edge Technology) and other internal reinforcements, elimination of one suspension row – from four to three – was possible. In effect, reduced total length of lines led to reduction of the drag, thus improving overall performance of the design.See more
