Core thermals, one after another as you experience the joy of flying without limits. Enjoy peace of mind in every aspect of flight with the perfect balance of safety, comfort, and performance

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.



Orbéa 2 en vol



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!

"Du bonheur ! Cette ORBEA 2 va ravir beaucoup de pilotes."

"La finesse est largement suffisante pour des vols cross même ambitieux, le tout, les doigt dans le nez!"

Philippe Lami, Parapente Mag n°154
