The Spitfire2 is a true Speed Rider and its direct and uncompromising handling feels home on the snow-covered slopes in mountain regions. The shortened lines and the lightweight construction using the hard-wearing and waterproof-coated 20 dtex fabric transform the pilot and glider into one, allowing complete focus on finding the best line. Once again Swing has been able to use the control lines and extended trim travel to increase the glide angle window considerably. The result is a new and previously unmatched dive, with almost the same glide as the Mirage.
The new Swing Design 2015, 3D seams and a reworked riser with extended trim travel by opening the stitching round off the new Spitfire2 and make it unique in its class.
Spitfire 2 vs. Mirage
The Spitfire2 is aimed at pilots who concentrate on Speed Riding and at dedicated fans of ‘swooping’ who would also like to launch without skis from time to time.
In direct contrast to the Spitfire 2, the Mirage is the all-round glider for enthusiastic speed flyers and for foot-launching. Its special features mean that it has strengths not only for the summer season – it also cuts an impressive figure in the winter when used with skis.
The Spitfire2 is available in Sizes Comp, 8.5m², 9m², 11.5m², 13m², 15m² and 18m² (twin)
