A NEW ERA OF LIGHT!
The MAESTRO2 is the new benchmark in B-Sports. The MAESTRO2 light brings you the same performance and flight characteristics, in an ultra-light design.
With its 76 cells, additional miniribs and a number of new technologies, the Maestro 2 light boasts unprecedented smoothness of shape and surface. All our ultralight engineering has been used to achieve a very low weight despite the very high number of cells and the highly complex construction.

MAESTRO 2 LIGHT LIFTS

The Maestro 2 is delivered with the R07 semi-lightweight pilot risers with handles on the C-arms.

This is a very simple and straightforward design, which is intended for easy operation and good dimensional stability over time.

If you want to achieve the lowest possible weight, you need the RZ3 superlight risers. These weigh 235g less per pair than the R07.

 

Maestro 2 Light Colors PhiAfter numerous simulations and real prototypes, we have come up with a highly complex concept that achieves unrivalled surface finish and very high shape stability. The sharp increase in the number of cells (76 compared with 60 in the previous model), combined with optimised 3D shaping, new high-stability structural ribs and additional miniribs in the leading edge, has resulted in a clear reduction in wrinkles in the part of the wing that is essential for lift and speed. The result is not just better performance at all speeds. The airflow is more stable and laminar: the maximum lift is higher, the flyable angle of attack is greater, low-speed flight is excellent, handling is more forgiving (longer brake travel), and as a result the thermalling ability reaches a new level. By continuing to optimise, we have finally reached new levels in the famous safety/performance ratio. During the optimisation process, we validated each design element in terms of its objectives: we eliminated certain trailing edge miniribs, the lower rushes and certain rushes in the wingtips. In the end, the MAESTRO 2 light is barely heavier than its predecessor, and still reasonably priced. And with fewer bridles, it's easier to fold and store. The MAESTRO 2 light only has rushes where they're really needed.

With the lightweight version, it was absolutely essential to achieve the same smooth surface finish. The choice of materials, the orientation and the cut of the panels were validated on numerous prototypes to ensure dimensional durability during ageing. As a result, MAESTRO 2 light offers the same performance and behaviour as the standard version. With even more response thanks to its lower inertia.

How to fold the Maestro?

The MAESTRO 2's rods are fairly short and not very sensitive to bending. You can fold the MAESTRO 2 without too much care.

What is the revision interval for a Maestro?

The first overhaul should be carried out after two years of use, or earlier in the case of intensive use. Our experience with our line material mix has shown that there is very little drift and that it stays within the tolerances for a long time. Remember to check the length of your brakes regularly.

Bear in mind, however, that like any high performance wing, the MAESTRO 2 will perform at its best with an annual trim check.

Technical data MAESTRO 2

The sharp increase in the number of cells (76 cells compared to the 60 of the previous one) in combination with the optimised 3D shaping, the new high-stability structural ribs and the additional miniribs in the leading edge, offer a clear reduction of wrinkles in the essential part of the wing for its lift and speed.

By continuing to optimise we have finally reached new levels in the famous safety/performance ratio. During the optimisation process we validated each design element in its objectives: we eliminated some trailing edge miniribs, the lower beads and some beads in the wingtips. In the end, the MAESTRO 2 is only slightly heavier than its predecessor and reasonably priced. And with fewer ruffles, it's easier to fold and store. The MAESTRO 2 only has rushes where they are really needed.

The B are the most versatile. A wide range to suit most paragliders! In this category you'll find gliders with more finesse, aimed at both occasional paragliders and experienced cross-country flyers. Even if they are not officially under-classified, they will be called B-, B, or B+, depending on their reactivity.
  • Leasy B paragliders (enB-)They allow you to tackle the first transitions with confidence, and will react more quickly than school sails during pitch, roll and wing manoeuvres.
  • Paragliders in B are available as soon as you have your pilot's licence. The pleasure of gliding is now just a wing's length away :) They help you get a better feel for thermals, and tighten your core so you can fly efficiently from thermal to thermal. Most of them are available in a light version, with thin dyneema risers and lightweight fabric. This considerably reduces storage volume, so they can be slipped into the smallest of rucksacks to suit hike-and-fly paragliding, cross-country flying, or your luggage to accompany your travels!
  • enB+ paragliders are even faster and livelier. Typically cross-country, they are designed for pilots who are already attacking thermals and who have accumulated a good number of flights. The piloting becomes precise and dynamic, the maximum speed high, and you experience a real pleasure of gliding. Their finesse means you can hang up at the best of your transitions... Still enB approved, it is however recommended that you have already completed a pilot training course (SIV) and have compiled 50 hours of flying time per year to be able to use this type of glider. Fans of bivouac flying will also find what they're looking for in this range, as lightweight versions are also available!
As you can see, there's bound to be an enB paraglider to suit you ...
