Arnon Dagan: “Overall the Vapor 2 is just faster up- and down wind. And it is easier to ride in strong and light wind conditions

The focus for a racing machine is easily defined: it must be faster, faster,... And easier to ride on all courses

Beim HUNTER Formula wurde die Heckbreite beibehalten, es gelang Günter LORCH jedoch in Zusammenarbeit mit Basti Kördel die Fahrleistungen des Shapes bei Starkwind zu steigern ohne die hervorrgeigenden Eigenschaften bei Leicht- und Mittelwind negativ zu beeinflussen
