UP is happy to introduce the fourth generation of our tandem paraglider, the K2⁴. Both professional and private pilots have always valued the K2 series.
"It flies like a solo glider" is the response from tandem pilots around the world. A characteristic that we naturally retained in the K2⁴.
To make the successful model even better, we focused on the launching properties, the weight, and the optimal mix of materials for long-term professional use.
The K2-4 ist equipped with several new technical features. First, the risers mow have an attachment for big ears, and they are made of a combination of 25 and 20mm webbings for maximum strenght and weight spare.
Next, the new Snaplock brake handles make for easy and quick handling during countless take-offs and landings on the K2-4. Although we still rely on a four-line system to sort the lines as easy as possible, the lines are brand new, robust, and durable lines from Edelrid. We selected this high-quality material wo withstand the rigors of long-term use as well as possible.
The negative 3D shaping, which comes from UP's 2-line development, ensures a clean leading edge even in high-speed flight, causing a considerable increase in performance. Finally, the upper material, the leading edge to the 50% of the chord, is constructed using double-coated Everlast from Porcher.With this innovation, UP improved significantely K2 durability while reducing the overall weight of the K2-4 by 700 grams to 7.7 kilograms.
After years of continuous development and positive innovations, we are proud to bring a worthy sucessor with the K2-4.
