The Swing Spitfire 2 Plus is one of the leading speed riding wings. The PLUS version is based on the basic concept for the previous Spitfire2. It has direct and uncompromising handling and feels completely at home on the powder slopes of our mountains. The new, very lightweight and robust 15dtex fabric reduces any canopy sluggishness making control behavior more intuitive and incredibly precise.
Swing which is based in Germany also optimized and updated the riser design with new trimmers and an improved feel. These updates and changes result in an improved feel and simplified handling, allowing pilots safe and rapid adjustment to the glide angle even wearing thicker winter gloves.

Spitfire 2 vs. Mirage
The Swing Spitfire2 PLUS is aimed at pilots who concentrate on Speed Riding and at dedicated Swooping fans of ‘swooping’ who enjoy foot launching / speed flying.
In direct contrast to the Swing Spitfire2, the Swing Mirage is the all-round glider for enthusiastic speed flyers. Its special features mean that it has strengths not only for the summer season – it also does an impressive job when used with skis in its sizes Comp, 8, 9 & 11.
