Sirius Tandem

The new Tandem Wing from

Axis

 


Offers a feeling of security to its passengers.

 Like all Axis gliders, it is easy to inflate and really fun to fly.

When setting out to design this new tandem glider Axis had a clear target:  They wanted to create the best tandem paraglider possible for recreational and commercial tandem pilots.

Pilots who want maximum comfort and enjoyment with minimum stress, performance with sensitive handling, but who rightly demand ever more security.

The Axis Sirius is an intermediate glider. Certified EN-B: "(Paragliders with good passive safety and forgiving flying characteristics.  Gliders with some resistance to departures from normal flight)".

Designed for pilots who want to be relax and safe in the air.  

 

 

Axis Power Sirius

Comes in 3 different Sizes:  35, 40 and 43 meters

Comes also in 3 different versions : Standard, Ultralight and MPG ( and it is  is possible to combine  the UL and MPG in one wing)

The MPG Sirius has stronger sewing around the hanging  points.

The Sirius has stronger lines and line tabs.

Axis achieved these excellent characteristics by using high quality materials:


Upper and lower surface :
- Color fabric:  Skytex New 9017 40g/m2 with E77A "water repellent" finish
- White fabric: Skytex New 9017 40g/m2 with E38A "medium" finish


Profile - Ribs (white) :
- Skytex New 9017 40 g/m2 with E29A "hard finish"
- Skytex New 9017 40 g/m2 with E38A "medium" finish


Lines:
The lines are made of a Dyneema based new material, Liros PPSL.
Characteristics include minimum stretching and much higher durability.
 
Choice of Standard Colors

 

 

Comes also in UL (Ultra Light) version:  Reinforcement and lines diameters are the same than the Sirius for heavy trikes and the  diference is the lighter fabrics used for the canopy (Skytex 27g/m2 on lower sail and 32/36g/m2 on top sail).

The Sirius in Standard version is made of Skytex 40 g fabric.

You can have a combination of MPG and Ultralight.
