Gin Explorer 2

      The ingredients are classically simple, even
      unremarkable: 59 cells, A.R. 6, 3 main lines,
      well proven profile. Yet the finished dish is
      unexpectedly exquisite.

      The Explorer 2 simply allows the pilot to
      reconnect with the pure joy of flight. No more
      struggling with the wing. No more niggling
      doubts. Just the direct experience, like a scene
      snapping into focus.



      The Explorer 2 offers concrete improvements over its predecessor whilst retaining the best-loved aspects of the original:

      – improved climbing ability in all conditions
      – improved glide performance
      – exemplary pitch stability for even better take-off
      characteristics and collapse resistance
      – smart riser for improved C riser control
      – increased maximum speed (2cm longer travel)
      – greater compressibility thanks to nitinol reinforcements
      – wider “sweet spot” across the weight range


      To the Top!

      Perhaps the most notable characteristic of the Explorer 2 is the way the refined yet compact handling translates into a superior climbing experience. The wing bites enthusiastically into thermals, yet settles quickly overhead. Brake pressures are light yet progressive, giving you just enough information to effortlessly maximise your climb.

      (Still) In A Class Of Its Own

      Thanks to the slight increase in surface area and other gains in aerodynamic efficiency, the Explorer 2’s glide performance surpasses that of its predecessor.

      An Unflappable Character

      The Explorer 2 has an innate pitch stability. Even on windier take-offs, the wing comes up progressively and waits obediently above your head. When conditions get rowdy, it’s more well behaved than ever.

Technical details

  • The Explorer 2 features a new smart riser with a control
  • toggle and a Harken pulley for extra smooth operation.
    Push half bar, take the riser and enjoy the view! The
    Explorer 2 also has an extra 2cm of speed bar travel for
    increased max speed.
  • Nitinol (Nickel titanium) rods make for a more
    compact packing, help maintain a clean top
    surface, even chordwise tension and keep the
    weight down.
