Our HK2 has many refinements to our original version:

‚Äč

  • The line trim has been optimized for competition and XRW.

  • We have improved upon the planform and shaping to create a more aerodynamic profile.

  • FT30 is the standard material for the HK2. The FT30 is a proprietary material we have designed that offers better flight characteristics, improved rigidity, and better wear characteristics than other fabrics on the market.

  • The new braking system produces a better bottom end shutdown and better performance in slow flight.

 

This is a wing designed specifically with performance in mind. Some of its key features are:

 

  • A tri-tapered leading edge.

  • An original airfoil optimized for higher wing loadings, with state-of-the-art CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) simulations.

 

The HK2 also provides exceptional rear riser performance, and new brakes are designed to provide unsurpassed stopping power even at high wing loading and small wing sizes. The wing has performance criteria second to none.

 

Notes on the HK Project: The HK Project is the flagship of Fluid Wings' technology. It is an up-to-date wing with the latest technology for competition canopy piloting. The project will be ever-evolving, with periodic updates to ensure that the current state-of-the-art design is utilized. This process is to ensure that we are providing the finest wing possible to those competitors seeking ultimate performance. No advantages are held in reserve for special pilots with this project. Once a concept is proven for safety and reliability it will be available to all qualified pilots.

 

The HK2 is available in sizes 60 (special approval) 64, 67, 69, 71, 75, 79, and 84.
