Airwave Gliders Wave

Wave 2


The Wave is designed for new pilots leaving school or any pilot searching for a wing to fly high and far.


The DHV 1 Wave intermediate paraglider is a sophisticated design, between the entry level Gecko and the Sport 4. The overall line length has been optimized to just 328 metres for the medium size. This gives the Wave 2 its excellent glide and also reduces the overall weight of the wing. The Wave 2 boasts an auto stable profile. This means that the wing will stay where it should be relative to you, directly overhead, with only minimal input.


The Wave 2 is the first Airwave wing to successfully use 'photogrammetry' in the design. This technique uses digital photography to analyse the shape of the glider in the air. Digital photos are translated into a 3D model of the glider.
