Description

On your next paramotoring trip, extra fuel, food or beer could be packed in your bag in place of the 1.1 kg of weight we skimmed off the Dual. With a mix of carefully allocated 27, 34, and 40-gramme cloth, the DGAC/EN-B certified Dual LITE feels like a light version of its parent, the Dual – with self floating inflations, power steering, loads of feedback and ultra-efficient characteristics. Lightweight means literally effortless inflations, improved safety, higher performance, and overall easier manoeuvrability.

Spécificités techniques

Elliptical cell openings

We have found that elliptical cell openings give better lower surface tension making for smoother inflation, and re-inflation after collapses.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Public

When you’re not gallivanting around the world, do you constantly dream of your next big paramotor adventure? Have you pushed and found most of your mental and physical limitations? Do you feel most comfortable motoring high over jagged peaks and deep ravines? If you want to share your passion for adventure, the Dual LITE tandem paramotor wing is designed for you.

The Dual LITE is designed specifically for adventurous paramotor teams. Its safety, performance, and weight have all been optimised for big paramotor flights and long paramotoring trips. It has the best launch/landing characteristics , handling, and performance we could pack into 6.35kg, so if you’re looking for the best you can get your oily hands on, look no further.


Notes du concepteur

I designed the Dual LITE to push the limits of what is possible in the sport of paramotoring. It worked. Whether it is a simple flight with a friend or a long record-breaking paramotor expedition, the Dual LITE delivers. The Dual LITE currently holds the tandem paramotor altitude world record of 5,066m by our test pilot Ant Green. I look forward to seeing what else it is capable of.

Like the Dual, the Dual LITE is a wing that has a very clean leading edge (Cord Cut Billow) making the low cell count (50 cells) feasible thus reducing the line consumption and complexity of the paraglider. I think the Dual LITE really benefits from the Dual’s renowned light handling. Its launching characteristics even surprised me – the wing progressively floats up with very little effort from the pilot. Once overhead it self stabilized and follows the pilots commands.
