Because you can feel when a wing is a good fit
Are you excited for better performance, but your hands are still a little bit heavy after your paragliding course? Or, are you a leisure pilot who flies fewer days per year than you'd prefer... or maybe you just enjoy more serene flying? Then KUDOS 2 will be your number one choice. With high pitch and roll stability, this entry-level EN-B paraglider will bring you immediate trust and comfort from the pull-up and through your flight, even in rougher thermal conditions.
Well-proven technologies on your excellent performance
The 3D cut of the leading edge, introduced in 2004 by Sky Paragliders, has since been used on all our models and is one of the critical technologies applied on the KUDOS 2. Making the leading edge cleaner by shaping flat fabric into a 3D-curved leading-edge brings a significant aerodynamic improvement and helps boost performance.
The reinforced leading edge (RLE) of thin nylon rods creates a perfect flight shape and brings a forgiving nature during inflation and launch. What else would you need than a docile canopy that rises dutifully over your head?
Mini Ribs for a clean and coherent trailing edge that naturally helps to reduce drag and provide you with a smooth glide.
What about handling?
Responsive and agile brakes are prized and what you expect nowadays from a low B. Ability to react while you encounter your thermals is crucial. And that's why whenever it comes to the fine-tuning of a new model, we can be pretty ruthless with our test pilots. Excellent handling is not only about the fact that the glider reacts swiftly to the brake input, but also how it reacts. We make a significant distinction between "change of course" and what deserves to be called a turn. We really push our test pilots until they find the most amicable possible balance between the roll and the yaw and insist on reaching the most progressive bank when tightening up the turn.
KUDOS 2 will give you precisely what is needed for your first XC flights: Efficient brakes to handle thermals or those tight turns, excellent glide performance for your skill level to reach another side of the valley unless you just sink out ;) A compact and coherent wing wrapped in a good portion of safety.
The main distinctive features are:
- Entry-level EN-B paraglider with a high level of safety.
- KUDOS 2 is incredibly easy to take off and have high pitch and roll stability.
- 3D-curved leading-edge brings a significant aerodynamic improvement and helps boost performance.
- The reinforced leading-edge creates a perfect flight shape.
- Mini Ribs for a clean and coherent trailing edge.
- Responsive and agile brakes.
- Made of durable materials. It extends its utility value so you do not have to worry about difficult, stony launch sites.
- We decided to protect the leading edge by adding 8mm of fabric between nylon rods and the leading edge itself.
And on your first flights you will get KUDOS 2 with:
