Designed and tuned by the motto Fly in Peace

The first Illusion made many pilots happy and has gained an extraordinary reputation during the years. Therefore our goal by the development was to maintain simple flight characteristics and user-friendliness while at the same time shifting the performance. The Illusion 2 benefits from the latest technologies and development experience of our current gliders, it is user friendly, easy to fold and carry.

Situated in the middle of the B category the Illusion 2 perfectly fits between the Muse 5 and Eden 7. Reliable in all situations the Illusion 2 excels in glide performance, stability and handling in whole weight range.

Technology

The canopy combine solid and semi-lightweight tissues. On a heavily stressed leading edge is used Skytex 38. The main part of the canopy uses Skytex 32 Universal and Skytex 32 Hard on ribs. The Nitinol rod system of rib reinforcement provides optimal rigidity of the canopy and guarantees the stability of the clean canopy surface, even if the wing is carelessly glider packed.

Construction and details

The canopy itself is designed for maximum aerodynamic cleanliness. It features: Triple positive 3D shaping, negative 3D leading edge shaping, mini-ribs on the trailing edge and newly shaped stabilizers. Optimized diameter and material of ARAMID sheathed lines warranty correct geometry of AOA during glider's life. Canopy shape, 52 cells, internal structure, diagonal ribs, line geometry - all have been optimized to provide the canopy sufficient rigidity, ensuring stability and a pleasant and comfortable flight in turbulent air.
The stability in accelerated mode is exceptional.
