Elan 2

Mission „Fly In Peace“ Once More Achieved
With the first Elan, Mac Para launched a groundbreaking glider, which uniquely combines enormous performance with benign flight behaviour. The Elan still inspires many pilots worldwide.

The Elan 2 continues this ethos. It is suitable for all ambitious but prudent pilots who seek excellent glide ratio and agile handling. With this great glider you can fly your best in a relaxed way.

Despite its high performance, the Elan 2 is a perfectly balanced paraglider. While crafting this remarkable wing into a semi-light glider, it was possible to improve the handling, yet the sporty agility of its predecessor has been retained. The canopy gives good feedback at all times and is very stable. Whether flying in weak conditions in the lowlands or demanding alpine terrain, the Elan 2 supports you. Thin straps, light materials, a state-of-the-art design and the elaborately sewn 63 cells make the Elan 2 the first choice for XC pilots, for whom performance and safety are important.

Lightweight and Easy to Launch Anywhere
The Elan 2 is designed as a semi-light glider – just 4.45 kg for the smallest size. The result is a well-balanced glider with simple takeoffs and manageable behaviour during extreme maneuvers. The Elan 2 has an aspect ratio of 6.27, combining top-end C category performance with a ride comfort more associated with a low-end wing.

Advanced Technology
The unique reinforcing system of the leading edge makes the Elan 2 faster at trim speed than the original Elan was in accelerated flight. In turbulence, the Elan 2 maintains exceptional stability and collapse resistance, requiring minimal correction via the C risers in accelerated flight. Bigger handles have been fitted on the C-risers and placed higher in comparison to the first Elan. Convenient self-cleaning exit “holes” on the wing tips will help remove any sand, grass or small stones from the glider.

Shaped to Perfection
3D-shaping offers not only new colour designs on the canopy but increased aerodynamic smoothness. The latest Elan features the usual miniribs on the trailing edge, higher arc, clean leading edge, and thin lines. All this helps to reduce drag and increase the performance of the Elan 2. Rigidity of the canopy, together with reinforcements, refined line geometry and impeccable craftsmanship have been optimised for enjoyable flight comfort.

You Will Love its Handling!
The light brake pressure at the beginning allows pleasant but sporty turns. Pressure increases progressively toward the end of the brake travel to offer safety reserves. Thanks to the Elan 2’s stability there is not much counter steering needed. Sensitivity to weight shift is moderate.

Beat the Rush
Contact your local MAC PARA dealer to purchase the Elan 2 for a test flight. You‘ll love the new design and handling of this flying masterpiece. Another great addition to the MAC PARA line up. We are proud of it.
