Product Description

Wills Wing U2 Ultra Performance Intermediate Hang Glider


The U2 is a high performance glider with handling characteristics suitable for pilots with intermediate and higher levels of skills and experience.


The U2 is available in two sizes - 160 and 145, and was conceived as a very light-weight glider with performance approaching that of the much heavier, more expensive, and more challenging competition class wings.


Hardware


There are no reflex bridles - all stability systems are internal - so cable drag is minimized. All lower cables are 3/32 1x19 un-coated, for additional drag reduction. Standard on the U2 is the new Litestream control frame, a Slipstream style, fully streamlined frame but with a short enough chord that makes it easier to grip. Specially machined, fully streamlined aluminum corner fittings complete the Litestream package, which offers a more than 95% reduction in drag as compared to a regular AT-style streamlined control bar with a round basetube.


Sail


The U2 features a curved tip planform and sports an exceptionally clean sail with a Mylar or 205MT leading edge and 205MT trailing edge offered as standard, or an available upgrade to either Hydranet of UVM sailcloth. An extended bottom surface in the root cleanly fairs in the hang loop. The U2 features an upgraded and improved sail cut that results in improved performance and even better handling characteristics. An upgrade to an all Mylar top surface is also an available option.


Flying Characteristics


In the air, at the looser VG settings, the U2 offers, light, quick response coupled with forgiving handling characteristics. With the VG on, the gliding range at speed expands dramatically, and the glider tracks straight and true. The U2 uses a weight- and cost-saving conventional VG system. The result is an exceptional performance package that is extraordinarily accessible. The landing characteristics are very straightforward; handling is damped and predictable on approach, the flare window is broad and flare authority is ample.


Hang gliders are excluded from free delivery - your glider will be delivered to Airways, where we will build it with you, pointing out not only the rigging technique, but the features of the glider.  We will then test fly it for you, then it is all yours to enjoy.
