Soar 2 – #cloudhopper

She was waiting for him to top land next to her.

As soon as his foot had touched the ground, she could hear him burst out laughing.
– You’re lucky I top landed with you because I’m the one with the stove!
– You mean how lucky we are! ’cause I’m the one with the tent!
Their first vol-biv. With the Soar 2.

Designer’s words…

The first Soar #cloudhopper has made so many pilots happy, its successor had big shoes to fill. By implementing new tricks (2.5 liner, new arch, two pairs of winglets…) while keeping its original DNA, we managed to create a glider that will fulfill the expectation of most pilots nowadays: rising superlight and landing with a huge smile.

Did you know?

Together with the Rise 5, the Soar 2 is our first glider presenting two pairs of winglets. The winglets on the wingtips help to reduce the drag while the winglets added on the top surface improve the roll control, especially in deep spiral.

Construction & Features


New nose guard patches on the leading edge: robustness is the key!


Hybrid 2.5 liner construction: 3 lines in the center, 2 lines on the tips. This saves some lines and thus reduces the drag, which also contributes to significantly increase performance at high speed


Double-coated Dominico DOKDO-10DSF for top and bottom surfaces: durable Superlight construction


The use of Nitinol rods not only saves weight and increases robustness, it also allows a super compact folding


The combination of winglets on the stabilos with winglets on the top surface offers the best performance/accessibility ratio

Did you know?

We are always looking for the best compromise between lightness and solidity. That’s why the Soar 2 has nose guard patches. Simple and easy, for a couple of tens of grams more only, the nose guard patches allow the use of a light fabric on the leading edge while making the latter more resistant than ever. In fact, the Dominico DOKDO-10DSF which offers excellent porosity over time is protected by a high abrasion resistant cloth along the leading edge rods. Quite clever, isn’t it?

Technical Specifications

AirDesign has a small one

We work hard on every model to be able to maintain the behavior of the glider in terms of flying, and also outside the flight envelope, for all the certified weights, starting by the smallest ones. The certification of most of our wings starts at 50 kg because we chose to announce only what we have actually tested. And above all, because we make sure that the glider is efficient, secure and fun at this load and this is as important as the certification itself! Our aim is to have light pilots find the same pleasure to fly as heavier ones. More info
