Wills Wing T2/T2C

The Wills Wing T2 is a highly refined high performance, competition class glider featuring a long list of hardware upgrades and improvements in the sail design. The result is an extraordinary combination of superb handling qualities and unsurpassed performance built on a platform of exceptional quality. The T2 features a robust yet light-weight carbon fiber crossbar, a wide-range VG system with 24:1 reduction for effortless activation, and a highly rigid sprog stability system with compensating inboard sprogs. The sail is clean and flat, with a very high percentage of double surface and extremely low twist. Roll pressures are light and the roll rate is quick, and yet the glider is stable on tow, offers excellent directional tracking, and is easy to land. The exceptional sink rate and climb performance allow for an expansion in the upper end of the weight range, allowing a pilot in the transition range between sizes to step down a size, and pick up further enhancements in glide performance at speed. For serious recreational and cross country pilots, or for anyone with advanced skills looking for the highest levels of flex wing performance at a surprisingly affordable price, the T2 is configurable with a long list of options, including all mylar top surface sail with special UV resistant film, carbon-kevlar leading edge pocket inserts, standard Slipstream2 or Litestream control bar downtubes, a specially designed carbon streamlined basetube or the standard aluminum streamlined basetube, and streamlined control bar basetube wheels set (aluminum basetube only). The ultralight and extra stiff 12mm battens, and customer choice of colors are now included for the T2 without additional charge. The Wills Wing T2C is the full competition version of the T2, and includes carbon rear leading edges and carbon sprogs in addition to other options available on the T2: all mylar top surface sail with special “UV-film” laminate sail material standard with Technora and Carbon laminate optional, carbon-kevlar leading edge pocket inserts, and an ergonomically-designed carbon streamlined basetube. (Pilots may “de-select” options if they choose to, for example by requesting an aluminum speedbar basetube instead of the carbon basetube, but the T2C glider price is not reduced for any included equipment that is deselected. The carbon rear leading edges and carbon sprogs are standard on, and only available on, the T2C, so a pilot who does not desire the carbon rear leading edges and sprogs should order the T2, and add options as desired from there.) The T2C features the same superb handling qualities as the T2. In addition, the increased stiffness provided by the carbon components allows for lower twist and a commensurate boost in high-speed performance to match or exceed the most exotic factory works gliders you will compete against. On July 3, 2012 Dustin Martin set the World Open Distance Record with a flight of 475 miles from Zapata, Texas illustrating the extraordinary performance potential of the Wills Wing T2C-144.
