With the BLACKLIGHT 2 U-Turn already presents the new XC generation 2017. The revolutionary high end B XC wing BLACKLIGHT 2 emphasizes the innovative energy of U-Turn. The wing was completely newly constructed and carries the tradition of high performance capability with easy handling into the future. The work in development to re-interpret the top seller took over two years. Of course all parameters were meant to be improved upon clearly. That admittedly posed a quite ambitioned challenge, that was more than achievedwith the BLACKLIGHT 2. The new overall concept not only brings a clear increase on power but also the handling and safety were refined and optimized. Additionally remarkable weight saving were realized through intelligent construction innovations.
The kilometer-eater reacts precisely and absolutely free of delay to the littlest control pules and translates thermal lift into height very reliably. The sleek wing also stands compactly in turbulent air and nevertheless conveys a precise feedback. Above all the sharknose provides a high stability and an extended inflow area, which more comfort and power on longer XC flights. However the reactions of the canopy are moderate and soft. The high potential gives the wing excellent starting features and ensure a low take off speed as well as very good slow flight features.
The BLACKLIGHT 2 is based on a new ground plan and paired with an elaborately calculated wing
profile, which provides much power with high stall tolerance. Chief designer Ernst Strobl equipped the BLACKLIGHT 2 with a sharknose, that provides higher stability during higher speeds. The 3D
shaping gives the wing a wrinkle-free tension and increases, in combination with the Precision Profile Nose (PPN), the form fidelity in the nose area. Complex calculations of the ballooning in
conjunction with the optimized pre-tensioning of the wing provide the perfect flow around the profile. The High Pressure Crossport Design (HPCD) idealizes the lateral
of the crossports and provides the wing with a balanced internal pressure. The line setup is very straightforward with three main lines.
