The fun machine.

Energetic. Direct.

The TONIC2 is the fun machine in our mini-wing range. The super-compact wing with short span and short lines is aimed at those who like to soar in strong winds or close to the slope. We like to call the TONIC2 the “go-kart” of the air because it converts control impulses directly and precisely and loves high banking and dynamic turns. Nevertheless, the field of application is surprisingly versatile – depending on the size you choose.

The TONIC2 is not only a perfect strong-wind glider, but also an ideal practice glider for ground-handling, wingover and looping training and a perfect companion for hike&fly tours. It has enough performance to glide out of every valley or even stay up on thermal days.

A carefully selected mix of materials ensures the necessary robustness in dunes as well as low weight for hike&fly. A special feature is the trimmer riser with which the speed window can be significantly increased. One thing is common to all sizes: The TONIC2 is extremely easy to handle, extremely fun in the air and extremely tough!


HOW DOES THE TONIC FLY?

The TONIC2 can be laid out in the smallest area due to its small span and short lines. Launch preparations are incomparably easy. A tug on the lines and the canopy rises up compactly and evenly. Because the TONIC2 develops lift fast, the pilot takes off quickly – this was an important point in the specifications when developing our new mini-wing.

The TONIC2 immediately converts control inputs and weight shifting into high banks and steep curves. The reactions are moderate and manageable, but if you have no experience with mini-wings, you should approach this feature slowly.

The reactions vary depending on the size and the corresponding surface loading. With a low load, the TONIC2 is suitable for thermal flying, but if it is heavily loaded it becomes a strong-wind rocket on cliffs and dunes.

In turbulence, the TONIC2 remains stable, but requires an active flying style due to its agility – especially at high wing loading. The brake line pressure increases sharply right up to the stall, and you can adjust your speed precisely for landing with the brakes.

The application range of the TONIC2 is extremely versatile, depending on the size you choose. The reactions vary depending on the glider size and the corresponding wing loading. With low wing loading the TONIC2 is suitable for thermal flying, while with high wing loading it becomes a real miniwing. The graphic will help you choose the right size!

JET FLAPS

Our JET FLAPS extend the green arc as you approach the stall point, which substantially increases safety and also improves climb performance.

RIGID FOIL

The Rigid Foil nylon wires on the leading edge help maintain its shape and ensure constant ram air pressure. Advantages: better takeoff behavior, more performance and lower canopy weight.

3D-SHAPING

A precise calculation of the leading edge geometry and the installation of an additional strip of fabric reduce wrinkling in this sensitive part of the glider. Advantages: exact wing shape, more performance.

LOOPS & HOOKS

Our loops and straps on the top sail make it possible to lay out the canopy in the most difficult alpine terrain.

MINI RIBS

Doubling the number of cells at the trailing edge increases its shape stability substantially. Advantage: fewer vortices improve the aerodynamics and with it the performance.

SHARK NOSE

Together with a corresponding wing design, the shark nose technology improves pressure distribution in the canopy substantially. Advantages: much more solid flying feeling and substantial performance gain, especially when gliding on bar.

AUTOMATIC SAND RELEASE SYSTEM

Porous openings of the profile ribs at the trailing edge ensure that sand and dirt in the glider are automatically guided to the wingtip where they can trickle out. This helps preserve the material and “relieves” the trailing edge.
