The Triple Seven ROOK2 is a glider purpose-built for intermediate pilots dreaming of big cross-country adventures. The glider’s technical design is based on the experience and technology of competition wings, with great emphasis on ease of flight and on safety. Certified in the EN/LTF B class, this wing is more technologically advanced than most, and you can feel it from the moment you launch.
“Right from the beginning of this project our design goal was to make an easy, efficient and fun cross country glider, to satisfy the needs of a broad range of pilots. As always, we wanted to make a better glider, with more performance than anything else in this class available on the market today. The Rook 2 fulfils this ambitious goal, and combines class-bursting performance and efficiency with remarkable pilot comfort and safety. While testing and tuning the new model for safety and flying ease we never stopped comparing it with other gliders and we must say that we are really happy with the results.”
This wing is a high-performance EN/LTF-B class glider intended for intermediate to advanced XC pilots looking for comfort and safety, but also for the highest performance in the class.

…or above the home turf, as it were 🙂 The Winter Cup is a popular early-season introduction to the XC comps season in Europe – and it takes place just a skip and a hop from the Triple Seven HQ in Ajdovščina, in western Slovenia. This year’s edition was blessed with excellent conditions and 4 out of 4 tasks flown, and the Triple Seven crowd ruled anything that wasn’t a 2-liner…
Valič Brothers interviewed by Marcus King. We get the lowdown from Triple Sevens research and development team.
Marcus King took Rook2 for a number of XC flights and fell in love with its climbing and performance characteristics. The Review is now public so you can read about the “best choice” wing for your 2016 season.
Thermik magazine test pilots have taken the Rook2 trough its test phases and made a nice article about the wing. We are publishing now an online version of the article that you can read trough.
Official Rook2 video is here with technical specifications and overall beauty of our flying sport. We have taken it to many places, from sea side soaring to harsh conditions in Julian Alps to show the wide range of use for Rook2.
