After three years of popular acclaim, excellent reviews and over 1200 Aspens sold world-wide, Gradient are replacing the Aspen with a new glider, The Aspen II, the next generation in the DHV 2 category.

Our target is clear.
To create an even better glider that will satisfy a similar pilot sector, keeping the comfortable but dynamic flying characteristics of the original Aspen but increasing the already high performance and safety margins. This is our way for the Aspen II.

The Aspen II has a new airfoil section and canopy curves; special focus has been given to the position, area and shaping of the air entry ports to ensure high stability over a very wide speed range (angle of attack). The forces in the wing are carefully calculated and balanced to give a flawless sail presentation and an intuitive feel to the flying. Gradient has paid attention to details too with new low drag micro attachment points on the wing tips and a new rucksack, inner bag and riser bag etc.

Several new materials are used in the construction of the Aspen II, The suspension system is constructed of a new generation of Edelrid line, the 7443 series; and a new narrower webbing has been selected for the riser system. The sail is our proven combination of Porcher Marine Skytex S 9092 water repellent (45g/m2) for the upper sail and Porcher Marine Skytex S 9017 (40g/m2) for the lower surface. The ribs are of Porcher Marine Skytex.

The Aspen II is presented in five attractive colour ways with a new design style and two new colours: orange and dark silver. Five standard sizes are available that together span a weight range of 65-130kg total weight, each size certified DHV2.
