Colt 2 Light is designed with experienced pilots in mind who like new challenges, but appreciate the safety and the pure joy of flight.
We’ve been refining the canopy for a long time in order to present D class agility and performance along with C-class safety and easy handling. The optimal balance of passive safety and performance of the original Colt has been further improved in this version.
The original Colt was enhanced with modern solutions tried in the Coden: shark nose and three sections of rods (Dudek FlexiEdge technology). The wingtip was modified too. The airfoil of the Colt 2 Light despite its high lift to drag ratio has some traits of a reflex profile too, used optimally for the paraglider’s class, intended use and performance. The aspect ratio was carefully balanced in order to fully utilize the merits of the new ideas while retaining the most optimal proportion of passive safety and performance, which we believe to be the best in this paraglider class.
The inner reinforcements, integral rods and mini-ribs take care of exact aerofoil reproduction and stability. Carefully planned and redesigned three-row rigging creates distinctly smaller drag, thus improving overall performance. Mini-ribs in the trailing edge keep it in shape and decrease ballooning, so the airflow is much improved. All these concepts result in great performance – the paraglider has finesse until recently to be found only in canopies with a much bigger aspect ratio, in addition, it’s fast and steady when accelerated. Colt 2 Light turns smoothly and obediently, and since this is combined with a meagre sink it will let you easily stay in weak and narrow thermals.
As in other our paragliders, the risers, of the Colt 2 Light constitute a complete, comfortable and carefully thought out “control panel” based on narrow Aramid risers, where each instrument is placed exactly where it should be and works as it should.
Soft, light brake handles with Smart Lock will be greatly appreciated during long flights, for which the Colt 2 Light was designed.
Colt 2 Light is produced in new technology, utilizing the capabilities of the precise laser cutter.
