Technology in your hands…

Using the same CAD design technology as used on our new generation competition glider the ICEPEAK 3, we have been able to bring to you the very latest Sports glider, the ARTIK 2. With this technology and our expertise the ARTIK 2 is a glider designed for complete and pure flying pleasure, allowing you to realise your wildest paragliding dreams. Even in the strongest of conditions the high level security does not falter, you will remain confident and always at one, in total harmony with your glider. On the ground launching is simple and uneventful, with a smooth and controlled lift effectively placing the glider directly above your head, you will always remain in complete control and ready for the perfect moment to take to the skies. We have been careful to ensure that the ARTIK2 has the perfect range of brake line travel, ensuring that throughout the entire speed range, fast or slow you will remain in perfect control. Without the risk of sudden and unexpected stalls you can be sure to fly the ARTIK 2 with total confidence.

Performance without compromise

To bring you a glider of performance and safety, concessions no longer need to be made. The ARTIK 2 has been designed without compromise, designed to bring you performance, agility, security and absolute flying pleasure. Smooth, balanced and responsive handling with immediate reaction to even the smallest pilot inputs is key handling features of the ARTIK 2. With the highest possible performance of any wing in this class, yet a security level even higher than its predecessor, the ARTIK 2 will allow you to set your goals and achieve even your highest expectations.

A Rebel amongst wings

With an uncomplicated 4-riser system and a single D line we have ensured minimal drag with maximum line efficiency. A leading edge very similar to the ones used on our competition gliders not only provides solid stability at high speed but also one which is more robust and more suited to the elements endured by this section of the glider. The performance of the ARTIK 2 during turbulence is nothing short of incredible, at low or high speeds the ARTIK 2 will allow you to confidently deal with even the roughest of air without the fear of excessive pitch or roll. In thermals the ARTIK 2 is supreme, it will help you to locate and hook thermals with efficiency you may never have before experienced. With its perfectly balanced control pressure, you will feel how the ARTIK 2 allows smooth responsive and highly efficient coring whilst all the time maintaining its incredible sink rate. The ARTIK 2, an EN C like no other, a true Rebel amongst wings.

Free your mind

On the ground or in air, in relaxed or demanding conditions, you will always find the ARTIK 2 ready and waiting to go. An immediate sense of coordination between pilot and the glider ensures complete harmony. The original Artik set a new EN C benchmark yet the performance and safety of the ARTIK 2 supersedes even that by a huge margin. Free your mind, fly with confidence, without restrictions or compromise, the ARTIK 2 brings you security and performance like no other EN C available today.
