Core 2 – fully competitive and successfully re-certified

size 23 now available!

Following the first benchmark test in Mexico, we have been working over the last 2 months to improve the performance and speed of our new 2-liner EN-D wing. The Core 2.23 was re-certified three weeks ago and we were able to compare its performance for the first time during the World Cup in Brazil. In the weak conditions, the glider showed extremely good climbing characteristics, and its gliding performance and speed were also looking very good. To verify this, we flew with two new Core 2.23 gliders during the international Trofeo Montegrappa to get further comparison in the high-speed range. The flying site in Bassano is known as a fast and competitive area. With 130 pilots and dozens of international top athletes, we were lucky to have at least one very significant task where Daniel Tyrkas came in 5th and Torsten Siegel finished shortly after him. The verdict by both Swing test pilots and also the other pilots was clear: the Core 2.23 is fully competitive now compared to the other new EN-D wings. And on top of that, we can offer great handling. Results here:

The recertified Core 2.23 is now available and we're working on certification of sizes 22 and 24. Want one as well? Contact us at info@swing.de Swing Team

Its design - captivating and impressive, its profile - timeless. Our inspiration for the Core 2 was optimised high-arc technology combined with classy 2-line geometry. It is a design icon, enhanced by the features you would expect of the Swing brand, featuring a sporty design with a racy appearance, frame technology and 3D-shaping. The Core 2 sets new standards for the EN-D category of glider with its unique technology concept and sensational design. Performance-oriented competition pilots certainly have something to get excited about!

Glider concept

The new Core 2 signifies everything that you can expect from a Swing glider. It is a breath-taking competition glider with its origins in the previous open class, but with a unique character. The new EN-D version of the now legendary Stratus family combines outstanding flight dynamics and a breath-taking puristic design with maximum performance.

Core 2 is the world's first pure 2-liner with LTF-D certification – tested without folding lines!

Pure confidence

Its appearance is extraordinarily dynamic. Design elements specific to the Core 2 and material contrasts serve to underline this impression. The elongated surface of the Core 2 is impressive in the sky and gives more than just a hint of the performance potential of this newly conceived glider.

When the design team began work on the Core 2, it had just one condition: it should incorporate the latest developments into a concept which would culminate in a competition glider with maximum performance, and which would receive certification. The result is impressive: an EN-D glider with technology from competition paragliding. Eighteen months of testing mean that the Core 2 had the longest development period in the company's history. The reason for this extensive testing is that the Core 2 implements a completely new structure. The highlights of this new glider are the various rigid components and an innovative attachment system, which is generally referred to as "2 line attachment".

Total control

The risers and brake handles form the interface between the pilot and the glider. The multi-grip brake handles allow precise control, support a consistently direct feel when steering and improve feedback to the pilot. The hangpoint designed specifically for the 2-liner allows impressive acceleration power and final speed. The setting of the canopy and the wing-tip is controlled through three stages, in order to achieve the maximum performance in each speed range. A double A-attachment supports the outstanding pitch behaviour. The result of this is a whole new dimension in paragliding.

The most important technical highlights

  • 2-line concept with double A-attachment point and B-level, without additional C-lines
  • Use of three different rigid materials for the top surface, leading edge and arch design of the B-attachment point
  • 3D-shaping of the top surface
  • Mini-ribs for optimal profiling of the trailing edge
  • Pocket design for all rigid materials allows simple replacement of rods
  • Edelrid 8000U-series lines throughout
  • 3-level system for extremely high acceleration and maximum performance across all speed ranges
  • extra strong delta quick links for 2-liner design, developed in cooperation with Peguet from France

Target group and recommended flying experience

"Performance pilots with extensive flying experience of at least 75-100 flying hours per annum, who wish to achieve the highest level of performance, e.g. in cross-country flying. The Core 2 is suitable for OLC and World Cup pilots who have already acquired experience flying 2-line gliders and who are familiar with the characteristics and extreme flight manoeuvres for this class. If pilots wish to fly the Core 2 but do not have a sufficient level of experience with 2-line gliders, we recommend them to undertake appropriate training.

DHV definition of the flight characteristics of LTF-D gliders

Paragliders with demanding flight characteristics and potentially violent reactions to turbulence and pilot errors. Return to normal flight requires precise pilot input. For pilots who have considerable experience in recovery techniques, who fly very actively, who have acquired a significant level of experience in turbulent conditions and who accept the implications of flying with such a paraglider."
