Power Venus III

 The hot Chick from

Axis

The Power Venus II is for pilots demanding performance & direct handling

   

It is characterized by excellent performance with good passive safety and is therefore suitable for long x-country flights as well as competition.

 

In new Power Venus II, you can find outstanding performances -which are usually reserved only to competition class gliders- but with very high stability and passive safety.

Enjoy !

This is the high performance glider in the AXIS range and provides excellent responses and feedback to the pilot.

Its handling is precise and direct and the turn efficient.

The Power Venus II is a glider made specially for competition and XC pilots, for pilots who appreciate the safety of serial gliders, and for pilots flying recreationally but with experience.

The design is based on the mix of the highly successful Venus and the Mercury competition gliders.  

With an improved glide and more homogenous handling, the Power Venus II is a fast, dynamic, but also stable and predictable glider.


It is designed for excellent glide at speed, direct handling and good behavior.


It provides excellent feedback while also feeling reassuring and solid.


For some pilots it can be a final glider because of the ideal combination of high performance and safety.

Axis reduced the weight of the canopy by the application of new materials, which also increase the safety.

Material reinforcements are added between the exterior line tabs and all the stitching is on the inside of the wing for greater protection.

An innovation – The newly designed “special differential speed-system” increases speed while reducing the chances of collapses at maximum speed.
