简介

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.

设计特点

Progressive stability

Progressive stability has been designed into all our gliders to help pilots feel turbulence and avoid it. This makes for safer and more comfortable flying.

Cord cut billow (CCB)

Cord Cut Billow technology has been developed to improve the form friction, glider stability and overall performance of our paragliders. Two seams run chord-wise across the top panels of the leading edge to accommodate the panel ballooning that happens when the wing is inflated. Up to five centimetres of excess material is created on the sides of an inflated flat panel bending over a wing profile. Cord Cut Billow technology absorbs the material with a 3D panel resulting in fewer ripples and improved rib profile shape and stability.

Replaceable trimmers

Committed to building products that last, we only use durable high-tech fabrics and sheathed kevlar lines on the Dual 2. In addition, we’ve created a replaceable trimmer system for the Dual 2 to maximize longevity.

Optimised line layout

Over the years we have perfected our system of optimising the line layout of our wings. We use numerous equations, software, and the plain old guess-and-check method to build our line layouts. The result is simple: fewer lines making stronger, faster gliders.

Eyes wide-open safety

Gliders that talk are safer. Safer gliders make pilots perform better. Better performing pilots fly further. Further flying pilots are happier pilots. Eyes Wide-open Safety produces happier pilots.

目标群体

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.


金匠笔记

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.

A lonely Flying Frenchy can't get a ride on a quiet country road until a paramotor flies his way. He grabs a line and gets hoisted high up into the sky. 更多
