Our mission was to create a certified, faster, more forgiving, more comfortable, and more stable Viper with even better glide performance that is also available in more sizes. Every paramotor pilot has dreamt of flying a Viper, and now more of those pilots can realize their dream.
The profile and thickness have been revised in order to achieve a higher top speed and extreme stability as a result of an even more balanced amount of ‘reflex’.
The size and position of the intakes have also been adjusted to achieve safer behaviour at high angles of attack and longer brake travel for a more forgiving feel.
The Aspect Ratio has been reduced only slightly, making the wing more compact, easier to handle and more comfortable in all situations.
A new internal structure with different line rigging and diagonals has created a 23% reduction in total line drag, which translates directly into better glide performance and fuel savings.
The general tension of the wing has been redesigned with new tension straps along the span at the A’s and D’s, which create a very compact feel and allow the wing to be flown at higher speeds with comfort.
We have also developed a new type of steering for use during high speed flying. The principle is simple: At high speeds you don’t want to influence the center part of the trailing edge because it creates lift and inverse roll. Influencing the center is also not ideal because of the greater chance of collapse when touching the brakes at higher angles of attack (ideally you want turns to be flat and efficient via yaw only, without weakening the profile).
The new Viper 2 steering system creates a yaw turn via the wingtips, using a spare handle that is attached to the risers with a magnet. It is easy and safe to use at anytime. The turn is quick, coordinated, and very natural.
Now available in 3 sizes – 24 / 26 / 28 making it even easier to choose the correct size.
The Viper2 is now certified, making the best performance and competition wing accessible to even more pilots.
