Small. Lightweight. Fast. The TONKA2 is made for Alpine adventures. They are super small, super light and super fast, which makes them predestined for alpine adventure. Each size has its own character. With only 10.2 m² of projected area, the TONKA2 XXS is the smallest and at 1.8 kg also one of the lightest LTF/EN approved paragliders. Depending on the take-off weight, the sizes XXS and XS are designed for competitive use or for fast flights to the valley. For pilots looking for less dynamics and speed, the TONKA is available in another size with just under 15 m² projected area. This is the perfect companion for ambitious Hike&Fly tours.

Handling:

The TONKA2 is a real “mini-wing”. Despite its small size, it doesn’t fly like a speedflyer. Instead, it flies with the precision of a really small paraglider. Its handling is extremely direct and agile. With a little bit of control line input you can turn this glider on a dime. And with a little more input you’ll be banking high in no time at all. Its high trim speed lets you launch, land and fly on windy days – a big advantage when a gust shoots up the lip of a steep backbowl or the wind suddenly picks up.

Performance:

The TONKA2 was developed for Alpine adventurers flying in challenging terrain. Despite its small area, its L/D is surprisingly high and its sinkrate reassuringly low. The TONKA2 lets you launch from difficult spots and land in tight, remote valleys – and soar to cloud base on thermally active days. Its trim speed is pretty fast, but if you want a real jet-feeling, just step on the bar!

Safety:

The TONKA2’s high wing loading makes it very stable – but also extremely dynamic and agile. For this reason, TONKA2 pilots should have a lot of flying experience under their belts and should be used to judging glider reaction in dynamic steep turns. 

Please note:- The glider reactions on the size S are less dynamic. 

Features

Jet Flaps

Enormous reserves as you approach the stall point: improved climb performance, especially in tight and strong thermals, longer brake travel to the stall point and an extended »green arc« of airspeed. More information

Rigid Foil

Nylon wires in the leading edge: lower total weight, maintains wing profile, ensures constant ram air pressure, improves launch, landing and extreme flight characteristics.

C-Wires

Nylon wires over the C- suspension point in the topsail instead of lines: less drag, more performance.

3D-Shaping

Fitting of an additional band: more exact profile shaping, less drag, more performance.

Mini Ribs

Doubles the number of cells in the area of the trailing edge: increased shape stability, less drag, more performance.

Construction

The TONKA2’s sail is made of lightweight Skytex 27 from Porcher Marine. Only the highly stressed leading edge on the topsail uses the tougher Skytex 38. Combined with a clever line concept with few suspension points and lightweight Dyneema risers, we were able to achieve an unbelievably low weight of just 2,1 kg.
