Beschreibung

The Dual is a both DGAC/EN-B rated versatile tandem paramotor wing, designed by Bruce to maximise the fun. With one size at 40m² flat and a weight range of 120 - 250 kg it is the ideal size for light tandem trikes and tandem paramotors.

We have added CCB to the Dual’s leading edge to improve inflation, stability, and performance. The Dual is equipped with trimmers that create a light reflex profile when engaged so pilots can adjust the trim according to their setup and enjoy stable speed while touring.

Konstruktionsmerkmale

Power Steering

Our tandems have been designed to respond very effectively to the brakes coupled with a ultra light brake pressure gives the feeling of ‘power steering’. This makes the handling closer to that of a solo wing.

Cord Cut Billow (CCB)

Das Cord Cut Billow System wurde entwickelt um die Oberflächenqualität, das Widerstandsvermögen und die aerodynamische Güte eines Gleitschirmes zu verbessern. Im Wesentlichen besteht das CCB aus zwei längsverlaufenden Nähten auf dem Obersegel, um den 3D Ballooning Effekt der Eintrittskanten bei einem befüllten Schirm zu verbessern. Das System reduziert die Falten und Knitterstellen, die entlang der Rippen an der Nase des Gleitschirmes verlaufen, erheblich. Nicht nur, dass diese Falten am Obersegel vorkommen, sie haben auch Auswirkungen auf die Rippen selbst, da sie die Profiltreue verändern und die Rippenstabilität reduzieren. Das CCB bringt generelle Verbesserung in der Leistung und ein Mehr an Stabilität im Segel. Das ist ein signifikanter Schritt nach vorne in der Konstruktion von Gleitschirmen.

Progressive Stabilität

Die progressive Stabilität soll Piloten vor leichter bis mäßiger Turbulenz warnen statt plötzlich völlig zusammenzuklappen, wenn es richtig turbulent wird. Der Artikel von Bruce in der Cross Country-Zeitschrift "Shifting Our Thinking on Safety" erklärt: "Ein Gleitschirm, der super stabil ist und fast nie klappt, kann zu mehr Unfällen führen, als wenn er öfter Klapper hat. Der Pilot ist ohne kleinere Klapper nicht vorbereitet und hat wenig Erfahrung mit dieser Situation umzugehen". Jeder Flügel wird bei starker Turbulenz einen Klapper bekommen. Ein kleiner Klapper in mittleren Turbulenzen ist leichter zu handhaben und daher sicherer als ein großer Klapper in starken Turbulenzen, der den Piloten überrascht.

Smooth Relaxed Feel

It is all about giving your passenger the best flying experience so we have designed a extra cushy smooth relaxed feel into this glider.

Snap locks

Snap Locks sind leichte, kompakte Magnetbefestigungen, die die Bremsen mühelos mit den Tragegurten verbinden. Ein kleiner fokussierter Magnet in der Mitte und ein internes Verriegelungssystem halten den Bremsgriff an Ort und Stelle und geben ihn nur frei, wenn die Griffe zum Piloten hin heruntergezogen werden. Dieses einzigartige Designmerkmal sorgt dafür, dass die Griffe beim Groundhandeln, Packen oder Ausführen von Manövern sich nicht einfach von der Befestigung ungewollt lösen. Das Snap Lock-System löst viele der Probleme, die mit Druckknöpfen oder Magneten verbunden sind.

Tandem Trimmers

Trimmers allow the pilot to let out or shorten the training edge of the profile essentially reducing to increasing the angle of attack thus speeding up or slowing down the air speed, respectively. The trimmer webbing has been designed to be replaceable if they become worn.

Replaceable Brake Pullies

With a simple around-and-through, you can easily replace those squeaky old brake pulleys or switch them for rings.

Tandem Risers

Our tandem risers have been rigorously tested by our fleet of tandem professionals and thoroughly live up to the task.

Two FAI World Records

This tandem holds 2 FAI world records for distance and altitude. Ant Green and Elliot Nochez broke the altitude world record flying over 5066m above the Mont Blanc and Ruben Vicente Crespo and Jose Ramon Martin broke the distance world record by flying 568km during a 10 hour flight across Spain.

Ziel

Do you live and breathe paramotoring? Have you given up trying to explain to friends and family what it feels like and now offer to take them tandem? Has it turned into a business or stayed a fun bonus to solo flying? The Dual tandem paramotor wing was made for you.

The Dual is designed for commercial and hobby paramotor/paratrike/motorhead pilots who use this aircraft as a safe tool to maximise the flying experience with their friends, family and customers. We think paramotoring provides amazing feelings of flight; this paramotor wing is designed to share these sensations with others. Thanks to Bruce’s easy launch, power steering and Cord Cut Billow (CCB), the Dual is for the pilot that wants impeccable safety, easy launch/landing characteristics, light handling, reflex stability, brilliant performance and stable speed.


Notizen von Bruce

When I fly tandem paramotors I don’t feel like I have enough control over the wing, especially while turning. I think this is because a tandem wing is usually faster, holding more energy and inertia than a solo wing. Personally, I don't have enough strength in my arms to make the glider do what I want. I am not going to start weight training so I designed the Dual to have softer and, most importantly, very reactive brakes. This gives the pilot more authority for launching, flying and landing, and feels more like a solo wing.

While producing the Dual we focused a lot of energy into the launch/landing characteristics. The Dual has a smooth progressive inflation that allows the pilot time to correct and adapt for changes in wind or terrain. It does not rip the pilot or shoot hard during high wind launching and self stabilizes once over head. Tandem pilots love this since they can’t always fly on nil wind days.
