Simba II is the 2002 update of the Simba. The Simba II is equiped with a new speed system better glide and stability at top speed along with a increase in top speed, and a new line layout for the tip A-Lines. The new tip line layout gives improved "Big Ear's".


Simba is the successor of the Bagheera and has a revised diagonal rib structure, incorporating the expierence gained from building the Tigra 2000. This created a cleaner wing andenabled a reduction in the amount of lines on the glider.

In order to meet the requirements of the Serial class competition rules, the Simba was re-certified in competition rigging configuration. It combines Top-level performance together with the safety of the Performance class certification. The only difference between the Simba and the Simba Comp is the type of line used. The Simba Comp has unsheathed Aramid. The line lengths are all identical.


The Simba has been certified Afnor Performance in all sizes with unsheathed competition lines, and Trimmers are available as an option.
