Descrizione

The Cyclone is a tough and strong 38m²/42m² semi-reflex wing for powered flight. It’s designed for trike or foot-launched tandems.

A stable and collapse-resistant wing with good roll stability ensures comfortable flights for both passenger and pilot, while sharp but light handling means it’s easy to have fun with too. It’s easy to launch and land without the need for long runways, inflating uniformly and rising quickly with no tendency to overshoot. The specialist risers have long-range trimmers and tip-steering handles, and an A-assist system to help with trike launches. This links the A-risers to the trike, so the trike pulls the A riser instead of the pilot, leaving the pilot’s hands free to control the throttle and steering.

Caratteristiche Particolari

ALULA Simulation software

The future of glider design depends largely on simulations. Instead of designing and producing prototypes one by one, we can now accurately simulate hundreds of paragliders using our own unique structural/aero simulation program. In effect we are now able to test virtual prototypes using this program, and on our paragliders we make over 200 virtual prototypes and analysing these involved in total 50 million iterations of the structural/aero calculations.

Light Handling

Through a combination of design techniques, we’ve kept the handling light even when fully loaded. This not only increases the fun-factor, but also reduces fatigue on the pilot.

A-Assist System

The A-assist system links the A-risers to additional risers on the trike, leaving the pilot’s hands free to control the throttle and steering.

Roller-Cam Trimmers

The new Roller-Cam trimmers on the Cyclone risers are smooth and easy to pull on and release, and gentle on the webbing too. They simply glide on and off!

Cord Cut Billow

La tecnologia Cord Cut Billow è stata sviluppata per ridurre la resistenza di forma, la stabilità e le prestazioni generali delle nostre vele. La tecnologia Cord Cut Billow è composta da due cucitura poste sui panelli dell'estradosso vicino al bordo di attacco, in direzione della corda alare. Questa cucitura permette al cassone di assumere la sua forma tonda naturale quando la vele viene gonfiata. Fino a 5cm di materiale in eccesso viene aggiunto ai lati di un panello nel suo stato gonfio e collocato sul profilo ricurvo di una vela gonfia riducendo così le grinze. Ridurre le grinze aiuta anche a mantenere il profilo delle intercentine, migliorandone così la stabilità.

PPG Stability

The Cyclone is a very solid and collapse-resistant wing, which will ride through turbulence well. Its roll stability ensures flights are smooth and comfortable for the passenger

Tip Steering

We have added dedicated magnetically fastened tip steering handles into the glider to make high-speed manoeuvres easy and safer.

Power Risers

The Cyclone’s Power Risers are robust and strong, made from 20mm webbing and specifically designed for trike and foot-launch tandem with heavy loads. All the components from the smooth Roller-Cam trimmers to the A-assist system, are strong and durable, and the easy-grab tip-steering handles have magnetic keepers.

Smooth Launch

Whether launched with the trike A-assist system, or with the pilot pulling the A’s, the Cyclone rises smoothly and uniformly into the air and has little or no tendency to overfly.

Obbiettivo

The ability to introduce others to the unique sensations and perspectives of flight is something all tandem pilots everywhere know and love. Using trikes opens it up to just about everyone, making flight possible for passengers with restricted mobility who would not be able to foot-launch. Roll stability ensures a smooth and comfortable ride.

This wing is for professional or leisure tandem paramotor pilots, or for carrying loads. It can be used for transporting equipment to out-of-the-way places, or for sky-camping with room for some extra luxuries.


Le Note di Bruce

This is the strongest and most durable wing we have ever built. It has a solid leading edge, designed using hundreds of simulations with our Alula software and constructed with a smooth, clean finish thanks to our Cord Cut Billow panel shaping.

It’s a heavy-duty wing with a big load-carrying ability, but it’s no lumbering truck. We think all wings should have great handling, and the Cyclone is no exception. The brake-reefing system allows us to keep brake pressure light, so it’s easy to have fun with and you don’t need to be built like the Hulk to fly it.

The new Roller-Cam trimmers on the Cyclone risers are smooth and easy to pull on and release, and are gentle on the webbing too. They simply glide on and off!

The Cyclone is an efficient wing with a fast cruising speed. To avoid the profile deformation which could occur if steering with the brakes at trimmers-out high speeds, there is a tip-steering system operated by a separate handle on the riser, for steering while fast-cruising.
