Info

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.

Tech

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.

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.

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.

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.

Replaceable Brake Pullies

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

Snap Locks

Snap Locks are lightweight, compact attachments that effortlessly connect the brakes to the risers. A small focused magnet inside the catch and an internal locking system hold the handle in place, releasing only if the handles are pulled down towards the pilot. This unique design feature means the handles don’t fall off while kiting, packing, or performing manoeuvres. The Snap Lock system solves many of the problems associated with press-studs and magnets.

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.

Tandem Risers

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

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.

Target

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.


Bruce's notes

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.
