- WHERE TO BUY
The new Queen2 went through a total redesign compared to its successful predecessor. The goal was to bring another dimension of performance into the EN C class, and we feel certain that this ambitious goal has been reached. The Queen2 excels in many ways, by bringing not only the best performance in its class, but also by being a very well-mannered royal lady in the air. We think of the Queen 2 as a “mid-level” EN C glider which will fulfill and supersede the expectations of any pilots going big in this class.
Preserving the aspect ratio nearly unchanged compared to the predecessor, the Queen2 will inspire confidence in all the variable conditions which you may face during long XC flights.
“The Queen2 is built with one very specific objective in mind; to be the highest-performing EN C wing on the market today! But it wouldn’t be a Triple Seven design if it wasn’t also a true pleasure to fly, and a very easy wing in its class too – just like all our other high-performance models. We increased the number of cells, both to acquire a more sleek canopy shape and in order to build a more complex internal “space frame”. This new internal construction brings the torsion resistance of the wing to a level that makes it super solid above your head when needed. The new internal layout contributes significantly to the improved climbing ability, as well as the ability to convert bumps into energy during turbulent transitions.”
The Queen 2 is purpose-built to win Sport-class trophies in competitions all over the world. The Sports class is the new Serial class for pilots unwilling to accept the risk levels in Serial and Open class competitions, and for these pilots, as well as for pilots wanting to go on big XC adventures, the Queen 2 is nothing short of the perfect choice. In spite of the very high performance of this wing it is still a “solid” EN C wing with no surprises built in.

Marko Hrgetic took a brand-new Queen 2 to Valle de Bravo in Mexico, to fly it in the 2018 Monarca Open. After 6 good tasks in a variety of conditions he ended up in 4th place Overall, smack in the middle of all the 2-liner hotships, and with very many of them behind him. We
Ziad has been working night-and-day to get his Queen 2 MS review ready, knowing that lots of people have been waiting for his verdict.

If you were hoping he’d hate it so that you could strike it off your own shortlist you will be VERY disappointed!
