Mission „Fly In Peace“ Once More Achieved
With the first Elan, Mac Para launched a groundbreaking glider, which uniquely combines enormous performance with benign flight behaviour. The Elan still inspires many pilots worldwide.
The Elan 2 continues this ethos. It is suitable for all ambitious but prudent pilots who seek excellent glide ratio and agile handling. With this great glider you can fly your best in a relaxed way.
Despite its high performance, the Elan 2 is a perfectly balanced paraglider. While crafting this remarkable wing into a semi-light glider, it was possible to improve the handling, yet the sporty agility of its predecessor has been retained. The canopy gives good feedback at all times and is very stable. Whether flying in weak conditions in the lowlands or demanding alpine terrain, the Elan 2 supports you. Thin straps, light materials, a state-of-the-art design and the elaborately sewn 63 cells make the Elan 2 the first choice for XC pilots, for whom performance and safety are important.
Lightweight and Easy to Launch Anywhere
The Elan 2 is designed as a semi-light glider – just 4.45 kg for the smallest size. The result is a well-balanced glider with simple takeoffs and manageable behaviour during extreme maneuvers. The Elan 2 has an aspect ratio of 6.27, combining top-end C category performance with a ride comfort more associated with a low-end wing.
The unique reinforcing system of the leading edge makes the Elan 2 faster at trim speed and in accelerated flight than the original Elan. In turbulence, the Elan 2 maintains exceptional stability and collapse resistance, requiring minimal correction via the C risers in accelerated flight. Bigger handles have been fitted on the C-risers and placed higher in comparison to the first Elan. Convenient self-cleaning exit “holes” on the wing tips will help remove any sand, grass or small stones from the glider.
