U2 Service

I haven't had nowhere as much use of my U2 as I'd have liked so wasn't really over concerned about delaying the side wire replacement beyond the 12 months as recommended by Wills Wing. I'm also confident in my own ability to check over and service my own glider, but feel you can't beat a pair of independent eyes as a double check and I can't think of a better pair than those of John Barratt from South Downs Hang Gliding.

As expected the glider was returned from John with a glowing report and a set of new shiney side wires fitted (as supplied from Phippsy from Cloud9 Hang Gliding and Paragliding).
