Three, two, one, booster ignition and we have lift-off for the LUNA 2, our out of this world PPG wing with the ultimate mission, to widen the possibilities of airborne exploration for PPG pilots. This high-tech versatile craft will safely carry pilots to discover new horizons and then softly bring them back to Earth.
The LUNA 2 is a very versatile semi-reflex wing, specifically designed for powered paragliding. It is used in schools for training new pilots, while also performing at high-end competitions – our team pilot Bene won the British Paramotor Championships 2019 on a LUNA 2. Its versatility is reflected in its characteristics: the perfect blend of comfort and safety, married with performance and speed. The LUNA 2 is an evolution of the original LUNA, itself a benchmark, but it now has a re-optimised semi-reflex profile, strong shark nose and a new elliptical arc. It also benefits from a new riser speed system with dedicated tip-steering handles, trimmers and speed bar, and our trademark CCB 3D panel shaping. Exceptional BGD handling and striking intergalactic colours complete the package.
With the LUNA 2 we have focused on an easy inflation, fun manoeuvrability, stability, and top speed – all the things you need for paramotoring adventures. Cord Cut Billow (CCB) along the LUNA 2’s leading edge helps keep the semi-reflex profile smooth and perfect, and the reflex makes for excellent stability at all speeds.
We have incorporated a solid reflex section into the LUNA 2 profile to help improve stability at higher speeds.
We have added dedicated magnetically fastened tip steering handles into the LUNA 2 to make high-speed manoeuvres easy and safe.
With a simple around-and-through, you can easily replace those squeaky old brake pulleys or switch them for rings.
We have found 18.5mm to be the perfect amount of speed bar for the LUNA 2, allowing us to achieve maximum speed range while keeping well within the stability limits.
The LUNA 2 is fitted with trimmers, with a range of 8.5cm.
Carefully arched diagonals in the internal structure of the LUNA 2 distribute tension more evenly across the wing, reducing wrinkles and increasing performance.
The LUNA 2 is capable of an excellent top speed, thanks to its high speed profile.
The LUNA 2 has a flattening ration of 11.5% meaning the arc is high and elliptical. This gives great handling, and is also stable under power.
Over the years we have perfected our system of optimising the line layout of our wings. We use numerous equations, software, and the plain old guess-and-check method to build our line layout. The result is simple: fewer lines making stronger, faster gliders.
The LUNA 2 is constructed with a mix of lightweight but robust, proven, materials.
