The new K-light 2 fits like a glove in both our glider range and very many pilots’ backpacks, and just like its slightly heavier brother it will take very good care of its pilots in the air. It was designed to be the obvious “next step” for ambitious newcomers to our sport and to be the right choice for pilots straight out of school as well as seasoned weekend warriors. It does everything that the Knight 2 does, only with even less stress on your joints and back, and it does it in effortless style.

K-light 2: Easy on your mind, and your back

If you’re a follower of all things Triple Seven, the K-light 2 will hardly come as a surprise to you – after all, most of our new wings have been followed by a lightweight version in recent years. 

The new K-light 2 fits like a glove in both our glider range and very many pilots’ backpacks, and just like its slightly heavier brother it will take very good care of its pilots in the air. It was designed to be the obvious “next step” for ambitious newcomers to our sport and to be the right choice for pilots straight out of school as well as seasoned weekend warriors. It does everything that the Knight 2 does, only with even less stress on your joints and back, and it does it in effortless style.

To keep things simple we have opted to keep the standard risers on the K-light 2 – in this pilot segment, simplicity trumps the few extra grams that the standard risers add, and we are certain that K-light 2 pilots will appreciate the opportunity to learn B-C steering on a very forgiving wing, regardless of the kind of flying adventures they choose to engage in.

Designer's notes

“The K-light 2 is the lightweight version of our new entry-level EN B wing, the Knight 2. It shares most characteristics with the sturdier older brother, but as usual with these lighter models it does have a slightly more playful feel to it; the launch is possibly a trifle lighter, the feel in thermals a little livelier etc. It preserves the very high level of passive safety that characterises the Knight 2, and during testing we did get the impression that it was slightly less dynamic in asymmetric collapses, probably due to the lower canopy mass. Other than that the main difference is surely weight and volume – something that is felt before and after the flight, and not really while in the air.

I’m very pleased with how the wing turned out; easily recognisable as an even more sophisticated version of the Knight 2!”

- Aljaz Valic, Designer

Flybubble review

The K-light 2 is the lightweight version of the Knight 2, which we've published a review video of. The K-light 2 is very similar to the Knight 2, with the usual differences you'd expect with the light version. See our video review of the Knight 2 below

Other reviews

"Conclusion: Looking at the Knight 2, lines, cell width, etc… I think Triple Seven is obsessed with performance. On Knight 2 they managed to combine very good performance, accessibility, excellent agility, with a high degree of pleasurable flying." - Ziad Bassil (full review)
