The next generation of beginner
Reflex wing that feels like an
intermediate but with EN B
Beginner / Intermediate Reflex Powerglider
After more than two years of practical development the much-anticipated REVO 2 is here.
Over the last few years in conjunction with Gin gliders, Paramania have developed this system. It is now incorporated into most of our range of gliders - CLE enhances the launching and performance by cleaning up the leading edge whilst spring opening intakes and reducing weight.
Characteristics :: Icaristics
When you first get the Revo2 out of the bag and inflate it, the word that immediately comes to mind is ‘easy’!
As you lay it out, the large cell openings with CLE supported leading edge present themselves to the air, almost ready to breath. Even in light or variable winds the wing comes up with minimum effort, stops and stabilizes above your head, as if waiting for you to move forward!
When launching, it quickly lifts you clear of the ground with minimum effort and almost no oscillating tendencies (vital when taking off heavily loaded or with a trike unit).
Once in the air it is so comfortable that you soon forget that there is a wing flying above your head!
Benefiting from Mike Campbell-Jones's latest “deep” Reflex wing section, It simply absorbs turbulence like no other reflex wing we have made.
The risers and controls have been logically thought through, whilst keeping simplicity as the main priority we have added several interesting new features.
The Revo2 flies as if on rails. It has plenty of pitch and roll stability. Given its beginner wing disguise, on fast trim it is a pure distance eater. Pilots can relax and go, no need to hold brakes, apart from occasional tip steering course adjustments. Others on paragliding type wings and even the average reflex wing are left in its wake!
Pulling the trimmers down; you notice slow trim is split into two positions ‘Slow’ and 'Super Slow’ perfect for low and slow flight or forgiving Paraglider-like landings. The combination of good sink rate and the wing’s tight turning radius, enable pilots to practice Paragliding skills (even without power) thermal flying and soaring in light conditions is now easy.
The handling is sublime anywhere within the slow trim range. Responsive and smooth, giving coordinated positive turns, even against powerful engine/propellor torque effects.
The controls feel light, yet with enough feedback to keep the pilot informed.
The length of brake travel is just right, comfortable to fly yet forgiving of heavier handed pilots.

Who will enjoy this wing?
In all we think the Revo 2 is a perfectly rounded paramotor wing. Its safety and ease of use suits training schools as well as new, occasional and/or progressive pilots and even experienced intermediate pilots looking for a fun wing that offers years of enjoyment!
It’s ideal for Trike usage. Apart from its substantial engineering build quality, the Revo 2 is extremely easy to inflate... pulling on As is almost a thing of the past and its stability during launch means less demanding behaviour or less likelihood of rolling expensive equipment.
For pilots coming from non-reflexed wings looking to get into a fully Reflexed powered wing that offers the possibility of trimming down slow for that familiar Paraglider feeling then the Revo2 is probably the wing for you to!
Note - Performance figures may vary depending on pilot/motor weight and drag.
