After the original Mojo’s three years of success, it proved to be a real challenge to improve this wing.
We of course wanted to stay in the LTF 1 category, and also within the EN A category if possible, while ensuring that the performance was without question at the top of its class.
Although the Mojo2 has the easy and forgiving characteristics of a LTF 1 / EN A wing, our mission was to give it precise and enjoyable handling in order to encourage pilots on their progression to fun XC and thermal flying.
We developed a totally new profile for the Mojo2 and the Buzz Z. The concept retains the stability and performance of the previous airfoil but we wanted to improve the flying characteristics at high angle of attack to make it more forgiving of deep brake input. This also makes launching easier, because the glider has more of a tendency to stay overhead without ‘falling back’, but the most noticeable difference is the increased brake travel and spin resistance. The handling is also considerably more precise than the original Mojo.
The line length has been reduced for a better contact with the wing. This gives a lighter feeling during the inflation and helps, along with the new airfoil, to make the ground-handling much easier. In flight, there is a significant reduction in the roll and because the pilot is closer to the wing, there is a better feeling of connection with the glider.
We’ve managed to reduce the total amount of line by 50 meters, which is a significant drag reduction. Reducing drag is the best way to improve performance without compromising safety.
What hasn’t changed
Same amount of cells and line arrangement.
The cell position is the same, with the original Mojo’s extra-clean wingtip.
The aspect ratio is the same at 5.0, which is the perfect compromise between performance and LTF 1 / EN A safety.
