IOTA 2 – Efficient Performance

The two most important ingredients for kilometer-munchers for the 2018 season? Effective performance in all conditions, and relaxed piloting! The new IOTA 2 comes out beginning of January. With the same piloting level as the IOTA, but now in five sizes with Seamless Weight Ranges.

Balanced power

With 59 cells and a flat aspect ratio of 5.6 the IOTA 2 is unmistakably an IOTA. The performance boosting technologies of extensive SIGMA 10 development have been merged with the high safety requirements of an EN/LTF-B wing.

 

Mini-Ribs, C-Wires, fewer line support points and lines, and Sliced Diagonals: as well as these high-tech technologies the IOTA 2 is exceptionally pitch and directionally stable in bumpy air, and has unmis­takably good into wind performance. Now in five sizes with Seamless Weight Ranges.

The IOTA 2 size selection was thought of as having Seamless Weight Ranges between 10 and 15 kg steps. Every pilot’s flying weight will find itself within only one ideal takeoff weight range, because these ranges extend seamlessly through the glider sizes, but do not overlap. These IOTA 2 ideal takeoff weight areas provide the optimal relationship between gliding speed and climb performance for each size in all normal flying conditions, and also take into account the different paraglider size characteristics.

For the first time a IOTA comes out in five sizes, with a proper small size. What we mean is that the IOTA 2/21 size, 60 - 77 kg takeoff weight range, is not just a scaled down version, but has materials and design features adapted for a small paraglider.
