The most outstanding features

Principal features        (Index)

Introduction


Orbiter

Designed by the world champion Manfred Ruhmer, this advanced intermediate glider is in production since 10 years.
With the little improvements we made during this period and with the new sail design it's now time to call it Orbiter 2.

This glider is the right choice for the pilots:

The Sail


Orbiter

We designed a perfect sail-cut to get a clean sail in flight

Rip-stop sail  in Dacron, to ensure stable profile and long durability

Our designer and phographer Ignazio Bernardi has "invented" a new sail design with 24 beautiful color combinations.

Sail colors


Orbiter

You can choose your own colors on the sail configurator

The Frame


Piuma

The finest tubing available is used, made from 7075 alloy, the same as that utilized in the aeronautical industry.
Our tubing is manufactured by extrusion, the process that guarantees the highest possible performance in terms of weight/strength and reliability.
