The EXPLORA is an intermediate and versatile glider made to discover the world of cross country adventures.

Lightness & performance.

We have designed the EXPLORA so it can be launched very easily in all wind conditions, either forward or backward. A little tug on the risers and a few steps, and you are in the air ! The result is a safe glider, which is comfortable to fly, versatile, with consistent performance in all conditions.

Ready for cross-country adventures

Hike & Fly pilots appreciate its light weight, low aspect ratio, and shorter lines, which makes it possible to launch from small remote mountain sites. At 3.95 kg (M), the EXPLORA is amazingly light for a XC-wing. Made from durable SKYTEX 32 it is about 1000 grams lighter compared to conventional wings.
