The Cyclone is a semi-reflex paramotor wing made to carry heavy loads: it’s a whirlwind of strength, with a surprisingly light touch.

The Cyclone is a tough and strong semi-reflex wing for powered flight. It’s designed for trike or foot-launching, tandem or solo, and available in 34m², 38m² and 42m² sizes.
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.
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.
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.
