Triple Seven Rook 2, EN B

Tuesday 12 January, 2016

Marcus King tries out Triple Seven’s new EN B sports wing

The Valic brothers’ first wing for Triple Seven was a complete hit. With good handling and stunning performance, the Rook dominated the podiums of not just EN-B class events but sports competitions too.

I reviewed the wing in issue 142 and found “a mile-munching machine that should take any decent pilot a long way and an impressive entrance into the paraglider market.” With the announcement of the Rook 2 this past summer I was more than keen to fly Urban and Aljaz’s new incarnation.

A four-star day was on the cards, and with the latest issue dispatched to the printers we raced to France’s Col de Bleyne. It was all looking a bit stable at first but I had a new wing in the bag and it was a lovely sunny early autumn day – I could enjoy a cruise around at the very least…

This is just a preview, the full review is in Cross Country 167, Feb/March 2016
