Whether you are a beginner learning the sport, a weekend pilot progressing to bigger and better things, or an experienced pilot who enjoys long XC flights, if you are looking for a lightweight wing with maximum safety without compromising performance, the Spyder could be the ideal wing for you.
Paramotor pilots are now benefitting from the lightweight equipment developments from the paragliding world. Based on the successful Roadster 2 and weighing on average 1.5kg less, the Spyder retains the same levels of comfort, performance, speed and stability but with noticeably better handling and ridiculously easy inflation, especially in nil wind.
The Spyder is made from a hybrid mix of lightweight materials, used in specific locations to optimise longevity and weight. Strong and UV resistant, Dominico N20D cloth is used in the critical leading edge area, with superlight Porcher Skytex 27gr in the rear part of the top surface and entire lower surface.
The Spyder is incredibly easy to inflate, requiring minimal riser input, it rises off the ground and above the pilot’s head without resistance, even in nil wind.. Take off speed is generally lower, requiring less engine power and a shorter runway to become airborne.
It is suitable for a wide range of pilots from beginner to experienced XC pilots who are looking for a safe and fun all-round wing.
The Spyder features a Shark Nose Ozone Reflex Profile (OZRP) tuned specifically for powered flight. The Shark nose profile maintains a constant level of lift and internal pressure over a wide range of angles of attack. This profile increases levels of stability whilst accelerated so is very collapse resistant – even in turbulent air – and increases levels of forgiveness due to its acceptance of deep brake inputs before the stall point. The wing includes a host of other technical details such as a refined sail tension to absorb turbulence and filter the feedback for a comfortable ride; efficient and light plastic nose reinforcements and a line plan optimised to balance low drag efficiency and long term durability.
The risers feature long-range trimmers and a long-range accelerator system for high cruise speeds and high top speed.
