ARCUS 2 RS
… experience your next level!
Achieving new levels of flying without overreaching yourself – that was precisely our goal in developing the ARCUS 2 RS.
The ARCUS 2 RS is based on the very successful and proven NYOS RS. With a little less aspect ratio, a new, resilient material mix and a lot of attention to detail, we have completely revised the design and adapted it to pilots who feel most comfortable in the mid-B segment. With a full 57 cells, the elegant wing already visually underlines its performance claim, but the compact flight feeling immediately conveys familiarity with a high feel-good factor and promises pure flying fun.
- Powerful mid-level B wing with 57 cells
- Durable and lightweight material mix
- RAST for more control and comfort
Who is the ARCUS 2 RS for?
Ambitious pilots who want to enter the B class, will feel just as comfortable under the ARCUS 2 RS as long-time licence holders and returnees from higher classes, for whom a high degree of passive safety with appealing performance is important.
You will feel the genes of its big brother, the NYOS RS, after the first revolutions in a thermal. Thanks to its extremely precise and direct handling, the ARCUS 2 RS takes you playfully to the top before giving you a glimpse of its performance potential on the transition. The stable canopy and optimised RAST system give you the confidence to try new things and fly further than ever before.
