The Sport 2 is Wills Wing’s latest, and arguably their best, in a long line of easy, fun to fly gliders that offer extraordinary levels of performance. Unlike other high performance kingposted gliders intended for pilots with advanced skills, the Sport 2 is suitable for even a true intermediate level pilot. At the same time, the Sport 2 provides performance that will satisfy an experienced veteran.
Wills Wing pioneered the concept of “the high performance glider you already know how to fly” 34 years ago. More than 20 years ago, with the introduction of the original Sport 167, we firmly established the parameters of the “Sport Class” glider; a true high performance glider that an intermediate level pilot can fly effectively, and have fun on. Today, first with the U2, and now with the Sport 2, we’ve brought that concept to its highest levels of refinement.
The Sport 2 utilizes internal sprogs for stability along with a single reflex bridle per wing. Equipped standard with the ultra low drag Litestream performance control bar and an effective VG system, the Sport 2 offers glide performance across the speed range that is just slightly below that of the U2! The Sport 2 tracks straight and true at any speed, with no tendency towards oscillations. The Sport 2’s “on rails” directional stability makes aerotowing a breeze, and allows for confident, accurate landing approaches. The Sport 2’s exceptional slow flight handling and performance give it a climb rate in thermals that is unsurpassed. Its unusually light weight and good static balance make ground handling and launching easy. Landing characteristics are also easy and forgiving, ensuring that even the end of your flight will be something to enjoy. And finally, the Sport 2 comes with all of the built in quality, and backed by all of the extensive support, that you’ve come to associate with Wills Wing.
If you’re in the market for a glider that you can enjoy right now, and continue to enjoy as you advance your skills and expand your experience for many years to come, take a look at the new Sport 2. Quite frankly, we’ve never made a better glider. And neither has anyone else.
New Litestream Compatible Round Speedbar Basetube
The Sport 2 is now offering the option of a round speedbar basetube on the Sport 2. This option is to address the requests of pilots who prefer the grip of a round basetube for comfort reasons, and pilots who want to be able to mount larger diameter wheels on a Litestream control bar. The photo shows the Litestream round speedbar mounted to a Sport 2, with Hall Wheels (not included) installed. We also have available VG compatible hubs for the larger 8 inch diameter Finsterwalder pneumatic wheels that will also allow them to be mounted on the Litestream round speedbar.
If you are a beginning pilot, you might be facing a task of choosing a hang glider for learning. Hang gliders of Target family allow to take classes beginning from the very first steps and ending in cross-country flights.
The U2 is a very high performance glider with handling characteristics suitable for pilots with intermediate and higher levels of skills and experience. The U2 is available in two sizes – 160 and 145.
Once again a Moyes hang glider has reset the standard in its class. Utilising the high end technologies and expertise derived from its well respected competition gliders, Gerolf Heinrichs and the Moyes crew have created the Moyes Malibu – a fun class open frame floater hang glider.
The Falcon 3 represents a significant design upgrade to what has been the most popular glider in Wills Wing’s history. Since 1994, the Falcon line has been the overwhelming favorite first-purchase glider for new pilots, as well as a very popular choice for more advanced pilots looking for the easiest, most convenient access to soaring available.
Moyes has applied its extensive knowledge of glider production gained through years of developing peak performance gliders to create a glider designed to heighten the pure enjoyment of flight for all pilots – The Moyes Sonic.
The Moyes Litesport is arguably the best king posted hang glider on the market. Designed by Gerolf Heinrichs, the Litesport has evolved out of the knowledge and experience base of the Litespeed and performs similarly to a non-king posted glider, while handling like an intermediate glider.
