Minor changes in design (like increased arc) caused the wing to be more agile. Special joints between mylar reinforcements and synthetic rods (as in e.g. Hadron) result in easier inflation of the canopy and increased stability of the leading edge. The paraglider launches easily and smoothly rises over your head.
Speed ranges have been slightly widened too. Another news is the ALC+ (improved ALC steering system) - it is more effective and balanced, so that steering appears to be smoother.
Despite rather minor changes, Nucleon WRC is not covered by the standard version certificates. Therefore all pilots caring for certified paragliders should stay by original Nucleon, which remains in regular, serial production.
After longish testing of the Nucleons WRC (with FET technology) it turned out that relatively minor modifications resulted in surprisingly good effects. A paraglider originally planned for the competitors remained pretty similar to classic Nucleon in terms of safety and stability, with considerable improvement of agility, top speed and launch behaviour.
Thus all those deeming better flying Nucleon more important than having a certificate, should consider obtaining the WRC version (note: this is not a competitor-only paraglider!). ActuaIly it's so good, that for the time being we do not plan on a Nucleon 2 at all. And since naming the WRC a 'Nucleon 2' would be excessive (it does not differ enough), we stick to the Nucleon WRC. Although the WRC in our nomenclature means 'With Rod Concept', similarities between Nucleon WRC and fast cars of the World Rally Championships are not lost on us :)
Nucleon WRC is an Action/Reaction wing, built around the idea of linear acceleration (equal share of trimmer/speedsystem effect), and limited reflexivity at slow trimmer settings. As a result we got a 100% reflex PPG sport paraglider with top performance, exceptional safety in its class (not worse than already legendary Reaction), and steering characteristics at low speeds similar to the classic profile paragliders).
