The superlight Racer

The SCALA has been developed for hike and fly races like the Redbull X-alps. These are super long distance endurance competitions. The athletes need a wing that is not only superbly performing, but also is very easy in every matter. They need to trust the wing’s stability and safety when they are tired and not that concentrated.

The SCALA 2 light is the evolution of the first version of the SCALA light (X-alps). We tuned on many screws to make it even better in performance, easyness and simplicity. The SCALA 2 is a high level EN C class wing!
With it’s high aspect ratio and performance the SCALA 2 stands out of the C class. It is a kind of game changer.

But even having that very elegant high aspect ratio, this wing is really easy in every matter! The outstanding feature is the extreme stable airfoil. As more turbulent it gets as more advantage you have with the SCALA 2!

SCALA 2 light Technical Features

The SCALA 2 light is an evolution of the SCALA light.

We improved the rigging system, allowing bigears, a higher load for bigger sizes and a better form stability.
The balooning has been optimized further on, as well we spend a lot of work in optimization of rod length, shape and number.
The SCALA 2 light uses the superlight D10 cloth in bottomsail: so we gained a little weight reserve for more rods in topsail.

The airfoil and intakes have been slightly adapted to improve performance and handling.
-as well as the new riser and line attachments system is offering more control at max speed.

SCALA 2 light Designer’s Note

We learned a lot by developing the SCALA 2 years ago. By working on high performance wings like the MAESTRO 2, we learned further on regarding sail finish and that small details that improve gliding performance. So we put all our knowledge and experience in the SCALA 2.

The SCALA 2 light is delivered with the super light riser R11.
It has a differentiation for better control the wingtip at max speed.

SCALA 2 light Q&A

How should the SCALA 2 light be packed?

The rods of the SCALA 2 light are quite short and not sensitive against bending. You can pack the SCALA 2 light without big attention.

What is the service interval of the SCALA 2 light? Is a trim tuning needed?

The service interval is as usual 2 years from the first flight. Please fill in your first flight in the type table. On the base of our experience with the lines material mix, there is no trim tuning necessary: the trim does normally not change significantly.

What is the extended weight range?

As the SCALA 2 light has a very wide safety margin, we decided to offer an extended weight range. This is offering the possibility to fly the SCALA 2 light with more wing loading, still being in the certification range. A pilot may use this option on days with strong thermals with extra ballast, for strong wind soaring or when he generally loves to fly a high loaded wing for more speed, more dynamic energy and more fun.
For normal thermal flying it is recommended to stay inside the standard weight range.

SCALA 1 light


Over 3 years ago we began with the A class wing SYMPHONIA.
Then we stepped up class by class and finished 68 wings until now!
Now we are reaching the D class…
Here is our first EN D wing: the SCALA light.

It is a radical 2×2 liner. Nothing else than a radical and very efficient design has always been expected of us.
