SORA2

The SORA 2 retains its exceptional inflation and landing characteristics and offers precise steering abilities. With very few pitch oscillations in turbulent air masses, the SORA 2 prevents the pilot from early exhaustion and provides the passenger with an even more enjoyable flying experience !

It took 3 years to our glider development team to the SORA 2. Key improvements : internal structure, greater landing/take-off characteristics and unwavering glider behaviour for a greater feeling of safety for the passenger.

Slightly firmer handling offers more precise steering characteristics than the SORA. The improved internal structure and the use of Sharknose technology allow less wing distortion in thermals.

Nitinol reinforcements, thoroughly placed, guarantee excellent sustainability of the glider’s performance and inflation features over time.

The SORA 2 also comes with improved risers.

INSIGHTS :

 

“The first SORA had the reputation of being amazing as regards to inflation and launch behaviours even in light wind conditions. Now it’s even better, very easy, it inflates well… It’s perfect!

In my opinion, the main advantage we have to talk about is that you can really easily control the rate of turn and roll; much better than the first SORA. Feedback is very quick thanks to a higher steering position : turns and rolls are more precise and performance has increased. It’s true that handling is a bit stiffer, but with this stiffness comes precision. You don’t need to play with the brake travel as much and you get very good steering sensations ! The first SORA was comfortable but this one is even better and also more fun to fly with thanks to this improved steering precision.

Performance was a huge strength when we flew the first prototypes and the first confirm it. When you let the glider gain speed by using trim risers settings or when you release the handles, performance is much better than what we were used to with the first SORA. Comfort is still there for the pro tandem pilot and performance has been greatly improved.

I know I’m going to be flying this tandem glider for seasons to come. I love it! Everything works well, what could be improved has been significantly upgraded. There’s no reason to look for something else, I’m going to fly this glider for the next several years.”
