Moyes Malibu2 Hang Glider
The new Moyes Malibu2 hang glider is now currently available in the 188 size. The Moyes Malibus have created a new surge of advanced pilots wanting to get back to simplicity.
Beginner hang glider pilots love the Malibu because it’s easy to launch, fly, and land.
Advanced (and intermediate) pilots want a Malibu because it can help open the door to fly challenging sites, i.e.. like the sand-dunes during gusty conditions, or learning to top land at places like Bald Hill Stanwell Park.
Select from the options below to order a Moyes Malibu2 hang glider.
You can read more information about the Malibu2 and the options available in the Product Description below.
Product Availability and Delivery:
We typically have a new Moyes Malibu2 in stock, or have another one in the pipeline. Typical wait time for a custom ordered Moyes Malibu2 is about 3-5 weeks.
The Moyes Malibu-2 hang glider is the ultimate dune-flying machine. Its incredible handling characteristics while flying near stall speed are what make it so sought after. Besides handling, the Malibu2 still delivers some performance to help jump those gaps between dunes.
Thanks to the expertise and attention to detail of designer Gerolf Heinrichs, the Moyes crew have set the benchmark for floater gliders.
The handling and safety of the Mailbu2 make it a great hang glider for dune-gooning for pilots of any level. These features also make the Malibu2 perfect for novice pilots, this glider is everything you will need for learning to ridge soar, aerotow, thermal and fly cross country.
Moyes Gliders explains the design advancements of the Malibu:
Now in it's second generation, the Malibu2 sports a streamlined exterior incorporating a new reinforced trailing edge that blends seamlessly into the leading edge panel for not only a more sophisticated appearance, but also to boost the sail's durability.
This improved sail cut design has created an unmistakable familiar resemblance to the Moyes high performance gliders with its distinct coloured rim tracing around the core? sail.
However, the new Malibu2's innovations are in the details. The trailing edge planform allows the wing, at speeds nearing stall, to redistribute the load, which, frees the wing tips from excessive load burden. The result: guarantees improved control during take off and landing.
We have also developed a unique low-friction ball bearing tip. This improves the glider's renowned easy handling by allowing the wing tip to rotate freely.
Curt's Pro Tip:
The recent changes to the Malibu2 (from Malibu1) were subtle, which was a smart move. The improved handling is hard to notice on your average flight, but stands out when soaring the dunes in gusty conditions or climbing in rowdy thermals.
What makes all of the Malibu gliders (Malibu1 or Malibu2's) stand out is the great handling when flying just above stall speed. Stall characteristics are incredibly forgiving, and progressive.
For options, you really don't need to bother, as it comes ready to go. For some pilots, the "faired" uprights? are comfortable on the shoulders and not much more money.
If you are a beginner hang glider pilot, don't bother with the Zoom uprights or carbon bar until your landings are solid, and your wallet is fat. They're not necessary on the floater class gliders. These options go really well on the next levels of Moyes gliders where your glide-speeds are faster are consequences of drag are greater.
