UP K2 3 Tandem

$4,740.00

The predecessor, our K22, was often described by experienced tandem pilots as the most versatile, fun and lively tandem wing on the market; we know of several professional tandem pilots who would take it out for acro sessions with their friends to wind down after a long day of taking paying passengers up – this has to be the best indicator of the FUN factor inherent in this design! The K23continues in the footsteps of this highly esteemed design. Our R&D guys have refined the details and kept the basics, so that commercial and leasure tandem pilots alike may enjoy the best wing in its class even more!

Description

Although it has almost turned into a PG business tandem marketing platitude, this tandem really does handle like solo wing – and that from the moment you touch the risers to launch it and until you and your happy passenger are back on the ground; if it wasn’t for the clicking noise from the camera you could be excused for forgetting that the passenger is even there! Just make sure you don’t go off on long XC’s when there are paying passengers waiting…
Available in two sizes, the K2-3 can be flown at its sweet spot by almost everyone…
The 2D diagram clearly shows the all-new canopy − the elliptical predecessor was replaced by a wing design with a large sweepback angle, which makes the K2-3 a pleasure to launch. The swept-back wingtips, first introduced in our competition wings, not only reduce drag but add to the arrow−like visual effect of this glider. Nylon battens instead of mylar in the leading edge reduce the packing volume and add to the easy launching characteristics.
