Skywalk Arriba 2 

Make it light and easy: Your reliable companion for Walk & Fly!

The Arriba 2 features low weight and a small packing volume.

We achieve this with the lightweight, PU-coated aluminium material AEROFABRIX [AL]32 that we also use on the POISON3, together with a pure 3-line concept and Rigid Foil technology in the leading edge. The resulting weight savings make the hike up to the launch site that much easier. Certified as EN-B/LTF-B, the ARRIBA2 gets you airborne even from difficult Alpine launches. In flight it will convince you with its handling and performance, as well as the safety potential derived from the TEQUILA3. The combination of low weight and appealing handling make for an uncomplicated glider with great performance. 

Hybrid Line Geometry 

The perfect mix of Aramid and Dyneema lines maximizes durability and minimizes trim changes over the lifecycle of your glider. This optimal use of line materials lowers air resistance and minimizes weight. 

Rigid Foil 

The leading edge is reinforced with flexible nylon battens. The result is a substantial weight savings that positively affects the handling in extreme conditions. The Rigid Foil technology gives that the leading edge maintains an optimal shape to ensure even airflow over the wing and a constant ram air pressure. The wing glides better, especially in accelerated flight. During launch, the battens hold leading edge open, making inflation a snap. 

3 Line Levels 

True 3-line technology with greatly reduced drag for more performance and easier line sorting. Three line levels from the risers to the wing without line junctions. 

Aerofabrix AL32 

Developed by skywalk, this ultra-light (32 g/sqm) material is coated with an additional aluminium vaporization process. The metallic layer blocks and reflects nearly 100% of damaging UV rays to extend the longevity of your glider. 

Race Lines 

For performance-oriented gliders, skywalk uses mostly unsheathed Aramid lines with high strength values that are relatively kink and stretch resistant. The result is reduced drag for more performance and better gliding. 

Jet Flaps 

By narrowing the cross section of the slit (channel), Jet Flaps create a Venturi effect that accelerates the airflow. The air is redirected from the lower sail (pressure area) to the upper sail (suction area) where it exits. Airflow separation is delayed, the stall occurs later, minimum speed is reduced, and the pilot has more angle of attack reserve. This is a considerable benefit during critical phases like launch, landing and tight thermals. More information

2 Plus 2 

For all gliders purchased after July 1, 2007, Skywalk offers its customers the skywalk 2 + 2 Guarantee - an additional warranty that goes beyond the minimum required by law [in Germany].
