THE Magnum II:
The Magnum series is the most used professional tandem wing in the world.
- Riser system with Ear Blockers
- New, lighter brake pressure
- Agile, solo glider handling
- Most durable design and materials
The Magnum II was more than three years in development, and has been tested thoroughly in all flyable conditions; from high wind launches to tail wind launches, high mountain air to coastal soaring and everything in between. Like the original Magnum, it is strong and versatile enough for any professional tandem pilot, and excels in all conditions. What professional pilots will notice first when flying the Magnum II, is an easier launch due to a much lighter sail. Incredibly, without reducing the wing’s strength or durability we have reduced the weight by 640g. This has improved not only the inflation and launch, but the in-flight behavior as well. The next obvious improvement is the reduced brake pressure. Pro pilots will appreciate the easier feel in turns and also a more sensitive and easily accessed flare for soft landings. With a slightly increased aspect ratio and 6 more cells, the Magnum II outperforms the original not only in comfort and ease of use, but also in glide performance and climb efficiency. A new line plan has allowed an 18% reduction in line drag, allowing you and your passenger more time in the air, if you want it. And if you don’t, the proven Ear-Blocker system will get you down quickly and easily. What passengers will notice (or not notice, as the case may be) is the smoothest tandem ride that we’ve ever felt. An increase in overall efficiency has also improved the smoothness of the ride, with better behavior in active conditions. We are confident that the new Magnum II will satisfy the world’s most demanding pro pilots, and we look forward to hearing your impressions of this exciting new wing.
