Nova - Ibex 2

 

 

The IBEX 2: The Ibex 2 is not just fun and uncomplicated to fly, the benefit starts with a small pack volume and the light weight, which makes it very easy to reach any destination you like. Also the take off is very easy, the IBEX 2 increases even without wind very quickly and reliably over the pilot. In stronger wind conditions the small surface area can be controlled more easily. In flight, the IBEX two offers by the large wing load, a combination of agility and dynamic that is hardly found in EN / LTF certified gliders. The glider offers a precise control input, and with high wing loading its much more dynamic in turns.

If you fly the Ibex 2 with less weight, the dynamic is of course much smaller, but it is still significantly higher than certified conventional gliders in its smallest size. These features allow a large range of applications: The para mountaineer will appreciate the easy launch characteristics and the high wind range. Some pilots will determine the IBEX 2 as a second or third glider next to their "normal" wing to experience those extraordinary flying fun, which the IBEX already owes his many fans.

Safety: The IBEX 2 comes from the ROOKIE / ION family that has already demonstrated its great potential in safety. Without these qualities, it would not have been possible to comply the certification rules with such a small glider. The IBEX 2 characterized in terms of its size by a well-controllable collapse behavior, and with the high wing load the glider remains very stable for a long time. The high wing loading and great agility course, require enhanced capabilities of the pilots, which will be discussed in detail here.

Performance: A cleaner finish and more dimensionally stable nose the IBEX 2 glides a bit better than the IBEX 1 who was outstanding in the class of mini-wings already. The performance parameters for mountaineers is an advantage to be able to overcome bigger distances by gliding. For pilots who want to soar along the coast, the high performance increases the wind window down. And finally, you can climb well in thermals also at the upper weight limit : A property that is not true for many 15sqm wings.

Changesfrom the Ibex 1: Kinkresistance polyamid rods at the leading edge improve the take off handling and increase the form stability. Vector strap directlybehind the inlet opening for optimal design Robust materialwith the lower surface 35g / m². New position and new brakeroller attachment for improved ergonomics Dirt opening on Stabiliser The IBEX 2 15 needs a experienced pilot, who has already gathered solid experience in turbulent conditions and also with manoeuvres like collapses. The glider is very predictable in its reactions but sometimes it requires fast and sensitive brake inputs. Therefore the pilot should already have certain "reflexes" from flying other wings. Of course the wing loading has a certain influence on the pilots requirements: If you fly the wing with less than 75kg it will be less demanding than if you fly it on top of the weight range. The IBEX 2 17 is more damped than the IBEX 2 15. Especially for very light pilots, we think, that the glider is also suited for occasional pilots. If you fly the IBEX 2 17 on top of its weight range, you need more experience to deal with the dynamic flying behaviour.
