Axis Comet 2 high end EN-B glider suitable for intermediate pilots and pilots starting XC flying. Axis Comet 2 has optimal balance of performance and passive safety.
Axis Comet 2 has been designed as a thin ellipse with a relatively high aspect ratio of 5,7 which guarantees a very high glide ratio. Axis team achieved line consumption by 40% compared to its predecessor Axis Comet.
These parametres combined with a new revolutionary leading edge shape (APS system) and the new speed system ensures that the new Comet 2 has the maximum speed around 57 km/h. The method of optimum pressurized leading edge – APS is used on Axis glider for the very first time. APS system provides a high resistence against collapse of the canopy, especially at maximum speed. The forces in the speed bar are also reduced by 40% compared to Axis Comet.
The breakes are newly equipped with « Power steering » taken from our competition glider Axis Mercury Sport. This allows for more effective breakes with less power needed to breake. Breake forces still remain progressively increasing!
