Duet

Easy and fun tandem for everyday use

The DUET is an easy all-round tandem paraglider for both commercial and recreational use.

Making a good tandem is not an easy task. The wing is big, but it should have perfect launch and turn behaviour on par with solo wings. Our DUET has it all, and even more! Despite the use of "regular" (non-light) cloth and lines, the Duet is unexpectedly light -- only 6,7 kg for size 41. We did not sacrifice the weight and longevity of cloth. The DUET is so light because of its sophisticated construction! Our Optimized Profile Stress(OPS) analysis technology allowed us to create a glider which is light but very robust.

Light weight means perfect takeoff behaviour and nice handling. The level of performance is also very good for an easy tandem wing, allowing easy thermalling and impressive XC potential. Also, due to the Anti-Vortex Tips (AVT) the DUET has a very long brake travel providing an additional level of safety.

DUET: share the joy of flight in a safe and easy way.
