Brings out the Lion in You

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

Simba is the successor of the now famous Bagheera. Unbelievable as it may seem, we have vastily improved on the performance of the Bagheera while retaining all the other great characteristics of the Bagheera

To achive this great advance - we revised the diagonal rib structure, incorporating the expierence gained from building the Tigra 2000. This not only created a cleaner wing but enabled us to safely reduce the amount of lines on the glider.

We are accepting orders now.

    Simba Comp:

    Following in the steps of the Bagheera, Simba will continue to rule the Kingdom of the Serial class and sometimes the open class too, as the Bahgeera did in the 2000 season of the PWC and in many other competitions.

    In order to meet the requirements of the Serial class competition rules, we re-certified the Simba in competition rigging configuration. We believe the Simba Comp to be an excellent tool and an easy formula to win a competition. It combines Top-level performance that will beat most of the "comp protos" together with the re-assuring safety of the Performance class certification. This makes flying the demanding competition tasks easy, as the Simba lets you concentrate on flying tactics without having to be worried about safety.

    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.
