The continuation of a success story

The first VIOLA wrote a success story. The pilots loved her performance, dynamic energy, precision and of course everything paired with her playful ease.
The VIOLA 2 continues this success. It is even lighter than its predecessor and even more balanced.
Better launch behavior, better roll damping, better handling and more performance.

VIOLA 2 technical features

Due to the high complexity of the inner construction of the VIOLA 2, the forces are distributed very evenly. The high form stability enables a flat surface: this means better roll damping and more performance.
The new, stiffer rods in the intake area offer an extremely good inflation and takeoff behaviour. A must in extreme alpine locations!

VIOLA 2 Designer’s Note

Although the VIOLA 2 has fewer attachments than its predecessor and therefore a more complex interior, although it has additional miniribs in the nose and more stiff rods in the opening, it is even lighter!
In our quest for further weight loss, we found even more security. We can thus attest to the exceptional safety of the VIOLA 2.
Same as her predecessor, the VIOLA 2 is an extreme versatile wing: a VIOLA 2 18 is a very easy and safe school wing loaded with 55kg, but as well a high level sports equipment for experienced pilots at the double amount of load: 110kg!

VIOLA 2 secrets

The secret to develop extraordinary wings is the passion to fly.
We’re ourselves enthusiastic pilots, loving hike and fly adventures.
I have to admit: we built the VIOLA 2 for ourselves.

VIOLA 2 guarantee

Like all other PHI wings, the VIOLA 2 is covered by the PHI PROMISE GUARANTEE.
Every damage is repaired in the first year of usage.



The VIOLA is an extremely versatile lightweight paraglider: 8 sizes covering a weight range from 50 to 145kg, from the certified miniwing up to an easy hike and fly wing for heavy pilots. The VIOLA 18 can be used as a family glider with a legal weight range from 50 up to 110kg. By using modern technology and new materials the weight per square meter was reduced even more. The risers are made from stable and robust TECHNORA. Choose softlinks or light metal maillon rapides. With the softlinks the small sizes of the VIOLA (incl. 20) have no pure metal parts at all! (The bigger sizes have a brake reef system with small metal rings.)
