Comet 4 (EN-B+)

Designed for those who want the best of what EN-B category has to offer

What if you could have a balanced glider that has both top performances and high passive safety ? Well it looks like you landed in the right page of the paragliding internet !

R&D Team’s note

The Comet 4 was a development from its predecessor, but with a new profile and higher AR, which resulted in higher glide-ratio in all speeds.

When developing Comet 4 we also focused on improving of handling and forces in brakes, as a result, the Comet 4 is now even more manoeuvrable than it is predecessor and very easy to handling

It is very light, also very suitable for fans of “hike and fly”  and also possible to fly with engine /PPG/

And is, of cource , suitable for winch starts.

TECHNLOGIES

The front part of the profile is rigidified by crossed plastics rods, also know as the shark noseIt enables stable inflation of canopy at all angles of attack.

The shape of the upper front pannels have been optimized using 3D modeling (called 3D shapping) to get a cleaner leading edge for a better penetration in the air, glide and speed.

Using the mini-ribs on the trailing edge for better direction of flow of the outgoing airflow – reducing secondary turbulence, which in turn reduces the overall resistance of the canopy, thus contributing to higher glide ratio / has already been a standard feature for Axis wings.

 

WEIGHT RANGE

COLOURS

The glider is 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 it is necessary to count with extra charge and longer delivery times.

FABRIC / MATERIALS USED

Top Surface Skytex 38g/m²
Bottom Surface Skytex 27g/m²
Hanged Ribs Skytex 40g/m² Hard Finish
Non-hanged ribs Skytex 27g/m² Hard Finish
Lines Ø 0.6 to 1.8mm from Liros Dyneema and Cousin Vectralines
Bottom ramification is sheated, top is unsheated

Just as all of our gliders the Comet 4 is manufactured in Czech Republic in our facilities. Using 100% made in europe materials 

THE BEST OF WHAT EN-B CATEGORY CAN OFFER
Balanced performance was what we aimed to do.
And we firmly believe that this glider will be the perfect XC companion for the young pilots in their progression but also for more experienced pilots who seek amazing performance combined with more comfort in turbulence !
