The DUAL is an EN-B rated tandem paraglider designed by Bruce specifically to share the fun. With one size at 40m². meters flat and a weight range of 120 - 220 kg we believe it is the perfect size for almost any couple to comfortably fly. We don’t want our pilots to risk flying uninsured by carrying passengers that take them outside their glider's certification. Of course, we have added CCB to the DUAL's leading edge in an effort to improve stability and performance. It worked.
The Dual is equipped with trimmers so pilots can adjust the handling and speed according to their passenger and loading.
The DUAL is designed for commercial pilots who use the glider as a tool to give the paragliding experience to their passengers, but also for hobby tandem pilots the DUAL fits simply perfect. We think paragliding provides great feelings of flight; this glider is designed to share them with others. The DUAL is for the pilot that wants a wing that will handle like their solo wing and launch and land easily.
I have found I don't have enough control over some tandem gliders when I am thermalling. I think this is because a tandem wing is usually faster, holding more energy and inertia than a solo wing. I feel as if I don't have enough strength in my arms to make the glider do what I want. I don’t really want to start weight training, so I designed the DUAL to have softer and, most importantly, very sensitive brakes. The DUAL gives the pilot more authority for launching, flying, and landing like on a solo wing.
Olivier, Sophie, Lou and friends converge in Martinique for a aerial circus extraveganza! You wont be able to not fall in love and get inspired by this adventure family as they show us their story and aerial dance. Hats off to @Shams for the... More
