http://u-turnusa.com Paramotoring K2 vs Atis III review for powered paragliding and paramotoring perfection!! Atis 3 is sweet, K2 is better:).
The Atis III is the new flagship wing from Sky Paragliders so naturally I had to
dump even more money into buying and trying their latest glider. I can pretty
much guarantee that I have spent more money buying and testing different gliders
than anyone else on earth lol. Life & flying is too important to just get any
old wing. Its gotta be the best!!
I special ordered the Atis III with the Race lines and had it made of the same
fabric as the K2 to give it the best possible chance of being the new ultimate
So here are the reasons it failed to best the K2:
1) The K2 and Atis III have almost the same glide performance.
2) The K2 handles lighter and quicker than the Atis III and is more fun to fly.
3) The K2 is waaaay more stable than the Atis III and is a certified beginner
glider as apposed to the Atis III which is an intermediate glider. I caught a
pretty good asymetric collapse of the Atis III on video during the test. With
the K2 I was able to fly around all day in the WAKE of the Atis III without any
concern at all.
The logic is pretty easy: If you have equal performance but waaay more safety
AND it is more fun to fly then doh, take the safer and funner glider.
On the upside for the Atis III it did seem to be a touch faster than the K2.
