The superlight Sportster

The first TENOR light was an extreme popular wing. Extremely light and performant. Because of it’s speed and stability the perfect wing for high alpine flying adventures.

Now the second generation is even better!
-better in every matter:
It is even lighter, even easier, even performing better!

Even having more complex internal structure, and even having more surface, the second generation of the TENOR lost weight: around 200g!

-and with the sporty characteristics of the new generation.

TENOR 2 light Technical Features

The TENOR 2 light is a technically very complex wing for its class (low to mid B).
-and this advanced technical complexity made it possible to further on reduce the weight.
We removed suspended airfoils and replaced them by super-light unsuspended ones, supported by super optimized finger diagonals.
-resulting in less lines, and less weight.

The new rod material offer a very high degree of stiffness for their weight. So the TENOR 2 light is significantly easier to launch than the first generation. A super easy inflation behaviour is a must in high alpine launches!

Safety was always a key bonus of the TENOR concept. There the TENOR 2 light is setting once again new benchmarks. The safety to speed relation is unique! So it is easy to fly at speed with the confidence.

TENOR 2 light Designer’s Note

As the TENOR light (first generation) was a bestseller and very popular for performance oriented super light equipment selection, we wanted to reach an even lower weight with the next generation.
-even with the little bigger surface of the TENOR 2 light.
We reached that goal by consequent weight reduction of the internals.

The superlight and form stable double coated Porcher Skytex 27 was again the first choice, as it is proven to be long living and reliable.

TENOR 2 light risers

The TENOR 2 light is delivered with the semi light riser R04.
You are free to customize and choose another riser free of charge.
When you want to go for extra light, you may choose the super light RZ1: this is reducing the weight on the tech date list by 285g!

TENOR 2 light Q&A

How should the TENOR 2 light be packed?

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

What is the service interval of the TENOR 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.

Can the TENOR 2 light be equipped with the C steering R07 riser?

Yes: you can order the TENOR 2 light with the C handle R07 riser. As for all PHI wings you can chose the riser at ordering. The R07 riser is rising the demand, as it is not as easy to be sorted as a normal riser (because of the free ball bearing roll as the B riser). We are recommending the R07 only for more experienced pilots.

What is the extended weight range?

As the TENOR 2 light has a very wide safety margin, we decided to offer an extended weight range. This is offering the possibility to fly the TENOR 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.

TENOR 1 light


The TENOR light uses modern light construction insights to combine high aerodynamic efficiency with exceptional form stability and incredibly low weight. The performance and speed enables ambitious Hike & Fly adventures that can be relaxing at the same time. The risers are made from stable and robust TECHNORA. Choose softlinks or light metal maillons.
Such lightweight performance and safety has never been seen before!
That’s why the TENOR light got a best seller!
