Venus SC (EN-C)

The Venus SC is our new high performance wing on EN-C category. With its 6.6 A/R, its 64 cells, its aggressive shark nose, its mini-ribs and other technologies it will get you always further and always faster. 

RENOVATIO / The rebirth

“The Venus SC (Sport Class) came to the world when we were working on a new profile for what was supposed to be the Venus 5. We realized we could manage better performances than Venus 4 and at the same time have a very impressive passive safety for the EN-D category, even close to the EN-C category !
So we worked again on the profile so that it would fit (and on the best way possible !) the EN-C category requirement specification; A/R reduced a little, arch reworked, optimised lineset, everything has been thinked so that the wing has the higher passive safety level possible and also the best performances for the the category, in order to satisfy the most ambitious EN-C pilots !”

Colors

The glider is normally produced in 5 basic color combinations: Flame, Summer, Spring, Melon and Eco. On request, it can be manufactured in color combinations according to the customer – but here it is necessary to count with extra charge and longer delivery times.

Lightness and durability
For the very first time here at Axis, we have decided to use Skytex 27 g/m² for the inside of the canopy and the internal structure, wich reduces the weight of the glider, without giving up the high durability of our gliders. That's because the inside of the canopy and the internal structure are less subject to the friction and to the UV's.
