Total confidence

In the EN B class, everything comes down to confidence – improved skills only happen when you have complete confidence in your wing. We built the new Knight 2 around this simple premise, and we’re confident that you’ll understand what we mean as soon as you take to the skies on one. Or, you’ll probably start to feel it even earlier, because the launch phase is obviously no less important to ensure that you’re as relaxed, as confident as you can possible be once you’re airborne. The Knight 2 inspires confidence from the moment you unpack it, and carries that sensation with it into the skies, so you may concentrate on expanding your skillset and your knowledge of the skies. To put it as bluntly as we can, we wanted to take the insecurities out of the equation for up-and-coming pilots, and we believe we have succeeded.

  • Once airborne, I was next to some pilots flying 2022 high Bs and C’s. It was still weak but I sensed that the Knight2 was effortlessly climbing! That glider could float really well. As it is slightly slower in overall movements and speed than a Rook 3 for example, the Knight 2 just sits in a thermal and embraces it. The climbing in the weak is really good! I found myself effortlessly detached from the group, with 700m above take-off!

    Transition with the first bar seems sorely efficient. The Knight stayed on the rail with a very good glide angle. Later I realized that with 2-3 cm on the bar, the glide is not far enough from the Rook 3. But for sure, the Rook 3 in moving air will compensate much better its efficient glide through the air. It is just an idea that on Knight 2 I was still reaching my usual points quite easily!

    After 3 hours I was able to go where I usually want to reach, a bit slower, much mellower, a huge time for smiling, looking around, and taking pictures.

    When you are used to flying different classes, the feel is obvious! On Knight 2 the time is slower to pass as if smoking a certain weed 😉  Hellllooowww I’m still here….

    If you are used to a low or mid-B glider the Knight 2 is a superb glider to try.

    Conclusion: Looking at the Knight 2, lines, cell width, etc…I think Triple Seven is obsessed with performance 🙂  On Knight 2 they managed to combine very good performance, accessibility, excellent agility, with a high degree of pleasurable flying.
