Alice was heading to the take-off. She knew the pathway like the back of her hand.
Conditions didn’t look that ideal, the sky was a bit grey, and the wind was very light or cross. Was the streak of bad luck still on? This morning, the cat had woken her up by sitting on her face, her toasts had burned, and Alice had walked in her socks on the wet bathroom floor…what a bad start to the day!
And yet jackdaws cartwheeling above the cliffs were telling another story. And she had her new wing on her back, the Vivo 2! After several sessions of ground handling that felt so joyful, today, she was eager to fly.
The rays of the sun caressed her face which lit up with a smile. Her chaotic start of the day was totally behind her. She took the direction of the LZ, pushed the speed-bar, and then made some wingovers. Alice forgot about the cat’s claws, the burnt toasts and the wet socks.
“Thank you Vivo” she whispered then she began to sing “Oh, it’s such a perfect day, I’m glad I spent it with you…”
Vivo 2, enjoy every second!

New outline with optimized surface distribution benefitting climbing and handling.
From a design perspective, the Vivo could be the little brother of our RISE3 – our highly regarded high-end EN-B wing. Cell count has increased for an even cleaner shape and performance advantage. The Vivo also inherits our winglet design which further improves performance and roll-stability.
The profile has been redesigned for improved handling, climbing characteristics, and market-leading passive safety. The Vivo features a weight-optimized construction – a mix of durable and light materials that lets us create a lighter glider that offers excellent product longevity and follows our high-quality standards in design and production, and we are excited to provide you with another top-level glider.
