As a reminder, Gracchio is the Italian name for the Alpine Chough, a bird we see everywhere in the mountains and that likes to fly for fun!

The Gracchio Mk2 is expanding its pilots’ range. This glider follows the LittleCloud formula with a moderate aspect ratio, a very pitch stable behavior, and extremely fun to fly! The Goal was to increase the usability from the Original Gracchio, in reducing the “power” feeling which was intimidating some pilots.
The Glider uses the Urubu airfoil with smaller air intakes.
The speciality of this airfoil is its efficiency and extreme safety (extremely pitch stable even after massive collapses, and huge brake travel).

Because of the high efficiency delivered by this wing, we were able to use sheathed lines for the bridle!
The shape and planform is 100% new, with 49 cells and 5.3 aspect ratio.
The Glider feedback is softer but still informing the pilot about the air they’re flying.
The Gracchio Mk2 is produced with semi-light materials, which are more durable but keep an overall weight very low thanks to its design simplicity.

The Gracchio Mk2 is a glider which makes you feel comfortable right away!
Its accessibility is larger than its predecessor.
With or without wind, inflation and rise are easy and loft less. 
Its’ handling is very predictive and intuitive, and delivers a lot of fun.
The handling is extraordinary: extremely precise, allowing to core small thermals.
For such a low AR, it has great glide and great upwind penetration.
 Like always at LittleCloud, we pay particular attention to the passive safety: the performance gains come with exceptional safety.
The long brake travel gets very heavy before the stall point (65cm for the 19/21 up to 80cm on the 27!).
We are convinced that these parameters combined with the pitch stable behavior are the key to a very safe wing.

  • LC inflation: 100% control of the rise, the wing strictly follows the pilot’s decision!
  • Bitey in the thermal
  • Sharp, precise, and super fun handling.
  • Comfortable and soft communication.
  • Very high level of passive safety: Huge brake range, extremely pitch stable (the glider doesn’t shoot forward).
  • Very fun! A real LittleCloud glider!

The Gracchio Mk2 is aimed for autonomous pilots looking for a glider which will not limit their desire of flying XC, soaring, or hike and fly.
It’s a perfect step up after the GT2 for pilots aiming for more experience with LittleCloud.
Be aware that this kind of wing, because of its’ performance, is not designed to compensate for the lack of skill or experience of the pilot, even though its potential allows it to fly longer and further!

Dette blir årets hike & fly vinge! Veldig lett å starte både i null vind og i den øvre grensen av vind. Leken og lett handling som er responsiv og presis. Med denne er det lett å ta de smaleste boblene i vårtermikken. Det er en semi lett vinge, som pakker lite men som fortsatt tåler de norske litt steinete og rufsete startene. Dette er en vinge jeg tror flere hike and fly entusiaster kan ha glede av, og en skal heller ikke kimse av den som en preformance vinge til de som vil ta steget videre fra en low B heller. Dette er en god og trygg vinge som kan gi massevis av læring og erfaring til piloten på en moro og leken måte.
