IT IS ALL ABOUT PERFORMANCE
The UP Kantega XC2 is built to
perform. It is a direct UP response to the new breed of EN B wings that our sport are seeing; wings which, in spite of their EN B rating, are capable of taking their pilots on long Alpine FAI
triangles through the most challenging conditions.
The UP Kantega XC2 is not your
classical performance paraglider; although it possesses the performance of such a wing, it has nothing of the demanding flying characteristics normally associated with performance on this scale. It
is designed to excel in the most demanding conditions, allowing its pilot the opportunity to make the most of every flying day out.
The EN B class is the most important
in any paraglider manufacturer's range – some 70-80% of all wings sold globally are EN B wings. This means that there must be something for almost everybody in this class, and the Kantega XC2 is
for the XC hounds out there. It has the performance to allow them to reach their ambitious goals, but in a package where the safety and ease of use aren't compromised. This translates into less
wing-related stress along the way, allowing more mental ressouces to be allocated to tactical and strategic considerations. Our test flights have shown that pilots tend to land with big smiles and a
craving for more after every outing, and that has got to be a good thing for an XC wing.
