(made in 1990)
The K2 joins the market opened up by the small Rumour from Solar Wings. The glider is said to be fast, the pitch/roll characteristics are slightly more traditional than the Kiss, which has gained the reputation of needing a delicate touch not suiting all pilots. There are four undersurface battens, the fourth stabilising the double surface towards the tips and eliminating low yaw stability at speed. The machine has 18 main-body battens, no half ribs and a new wide keel pocket which gives crisper turns. The new trim tips are used to tune handling.
K2. Sail 144 sq ft, pilot weight 50-80 kg, best glide speed 28 mph.
