The Speedster 2 is an excellent choice as an intermediate cross-country reflex glider, with a lineage of stability, performance, and reliability dating back to the "dawn of advanced paramotor wings."
Replacing the iconic Speedster was never going to be an easy task. After years of testing, we are pleased to announce that the Speedster 2 is now ready. This all new design retains a similar character to its predecessor, but includes technological improvements on the handling, stability, and efficiency. The Speedster 2 is a more agile and efficient wing, with even more speed for the new generation of PPG pilots.
The OZRP shark nose profile, along with the modified aspect ratio and optimized internal structure, has sharpened the handling, increased the inherent stability, and improved the sail cohesion – all of which means that the wing is easier and more forgiving to fly, especially in turbulent air. The fact that the aspect ratio has been reduced alongside an increase in overall performance means that the S2 is a huge step forward from the original Speedster.

Notes from the Fly Halo team:
The Speedster has in many ways been a mainstay in PPG since it's introduction in 2011. An intermediate reflex glider designed for racking up the miles safely, it really was ahead of its time with it's first edition. Prior to gliders like the Speedster, reflex wings were "dodgy" at best and downright hellish at worst.
The most recent version, Speedster 2 continues the legacy of a safe and stable intermediate-performer, while addressing the ease of inflation/launch issues that reflex wings of yesteryear were plagued with.
We're very pleased with the Speedster 2 - it's a well-designed, stable, and fun cruising wing that is perfect for the all-around pilot.
