K2
 
Successor to the Kiss, the 1990 K2 was easy to fly easy to land, and turns on a sixpence. The K2 joins the market opened up by the small Rumour from Solar Wings. The glider is said to be fast, the pitch/roll characteristics are slightly more traditional than the Kiss, which has gained the reputation of needing a delicate touch not suiting all pilots.
 
Airwv-K2-02 
 
There are four undersurface battens, the fourth stabilising the double surface towards the tips and eliminating low yaw stability at speed. The machine has 18 main-body battens, no half ribs and a new wide keel pocket which gives crisper turns. The new trim tips were used to tune handling.
