Carve 2

Feel the freedom

The Carve 2 is a freestyle wing that has been tuned to perfection. It’s a lively, playful wing that will always react in a precise and predictable way — giving you the freedom to focus on your moves.

The Carve 2 is aimed at intermediate to advanced pilots looking to practice freestyle, acrobatics, proximity or slalom based manoeuvres.

A bundle of energy and fun

Playful and responsive, the Carve 2 loves to be flown at high wing loadings. Its dynamic character makes it easy to develop energetic manoeuvres and it’s also aerodynamically efficient with a wide speed range.

2D Steering

Advanced pilots will appreciate the control options provided by the 2D steering: depending on your speed and the turn you would like to make, you can either pull down the centre of the glider or only the wing tip.

Super stable, super simple

Take off is surprisingly simple for such an advanced wing, the wing comes up in a progressive manner and the pilot is quickly airborne. The wing is smooth and well-damped in the air, particularly at speed. Landing is similarly easy, and is even controllable on the brakes with trim open.

Updated riser

The Carve 2 riser has been simplified and upgraded to improve ergonomics. There’s a new trim handle, which can be magnetically stowed both above and below the trim buckle. The trimmer is marked in 25% increments and there’s a light stopper. The brake webbing is elasticated and features a Harken pulley for extra smooth operation.

Designer notes

Designer Gin Seok Song explains the development process of the Carve 2:

The Carve 2 is aimed at pilots who are getting into freestyle, acrobatics, proximity or slalom based manoeuvres. It’s always a challenge to produce a dynamic, lively wing that can satisfy even advanced pilots, whilst also being smooth and well-damped enough for intermediate pilots.
