CIMA K2

The very best PPG glider for all those who just love flying light

CIMA K2 is an ultra light wing (only 3.5 kg in the M size with the traditional (13mm) risers) that still could be used for everyday flying as the unique mixture of materials (see below) and the way they are used ensures the maximum durability, low porosity value in the course of the time and minimal aging of the wing. The panels are made of the ultra light SKYTEX 27 classic while the leading edge is provided with SKYTEX 40 Deperlant to minimize the aging of the wing.


CIMA K2 - AFNOR Standard (DHV 1)


The CIMA K2 is the multi-purpose glider suitable for every pilots needs. Despite its light weight and compact size the CIMA K2 is a glider without compromise.


The CIMA K2 has performance to rival any Standard class paraglider with a 9 - 1 glide.


The CIMA K2 is perfectly suited for:

  1. Hike and climbing to out of the way launches.

  2. Light and compact enough to comfortably take anywhere – even skiing.

  3. Traveling – take your glider along as carry-on luggage!

  4. Bivouac

  5. Pilots wanting a lighter, less bulky glider durable enough for normal every-day flying.


Advantages of the CIMA K2:

  1. A mountain glider, but made from standard materials for „real glider“ durability.

  2. Hight tech lines and real risers – for durability and confidence.

  3. High safety level

  4. Extremely easy take-off even at difficult conditions

  5. Very nice and comfortable SKY handling

  6. A glider ratio of better than 8:1

  7. Best of all, world famous Sky Paraglider’s high quality.

Materials

Canopy

The French company Porcher Sport, which is part of the NVC GROUP, supplies the glider fabric. In the last two years Porcher Marine have been heavily involved in fabric development; creating new and more durable coatings which has led to a new generation of materials that came to be known as New Skytex.

The new coating is much more resistant to abrasion, humidity and is UV resistance.

We use SKYTEX 27 classic for the top and bottom surfaces to ensure the glider is light and SKYTEX 40 deperlant (bilateral water base coating that impregnates the fibres, rather than just the surface) for the leading edge to ensure the best available protection against ageing. Profiles and diagonals or diagonal segments are produced from Skytex 40 hard finish.

The fabric is manufactured using the “Rip Stop” weave structure, out of superpolyamid (PA 6.6) by the American firm DU PONT.

Line scheme

The upper lines on the CIMA K2 are the high tech lines by French COUSIN. These lines create high resistance from mechanical abrasion as well as a high degree of length stability. The Main lines are of the highest quality and are supplied by the German firm LIROS. These lines create high resistance from mechanical abrasion as well as a high degree of length stability.

The upper gallery of the line scheme (forks) is manufactured using the unsheathed COUSINE dyneema lines – TOP LINE Ultimate 16175. The main lines are made of Liros PPSL – the core is made of “dyneema” and lines are covered by polyester sleeves.

Risers

The risers are made from 13 mm wide webbing, it is manufactured by our supplier MOUKA TIŠNOV. The suspension lines are connected to the risers by means of quick links (mailons); which come from the French supplier Maillon Rapide.

In 2007 Sky Paragliders company was certified as a 100% SKYTEX partner for Porcher Marine fabrics. That allows us to use the latest development benefits and share them with all our pilots. Also the certification ensures that the whole glider is made of the same material and that SKY PARAGLIDERS do not combine the best available quality of Porcher with any other materials available in the market.
