Versatility without sacrifice

In developing the ORBEA 2, the designer Alexander Paux, pushed the limits of creating a glider, which is as simple as possible and still has everything you need.

The ORBEA 2 invites you to discover or rediscover the joy of free flying. Where there is a path to the summit, the ORBEA 2 makes it easy to forget about climb to the top. With its modest aspect ration and short suspentage, the ORBEA 2 can be laid-out even on a narrow takeoff.

Lightness – Pleasure – Tolerance

Because it is lightweight, it inflates at the slightest hint of a breeze.

With its lightweight and small volume, simplicity of implementation, ease of flying, and comfort in flight, the ORBEA 2 increases your possibilities for launch by a factor of two or three!

Core thermals, one after another as you experience the joy of flying without limits

Press review


Cette ORBEA 2 va ravir beaucoup de pilotes !

Plus facile que ça, tu meurs ! La légèreté associée au faible allongement (4.95), rendent l’ORBEA 2 douce, tranquille sans vivacité.
La finesse est largement suffisante pour des vols cross même ambitieux, le tout, les doigt dans le nez !

Philippe Lami, Parapente Mag N°154


Conception épurée démontrant la maîtrise du concepteur.
Légère tout en restant solide. Tissus, suspente, élévateurs « classique ».
Facile, ludique et sûr en toute circonstance.

Laurent van Hille, Parapente+ N°440
