Target groups

Competition and cross-country pilots with the highest performance requirements.

Construction details

SWING has officially withdrawn from the competition scene, but the development of high-performance wings has of course continued.
This explains why we already have here the 4th generation STRATUS. Swing has decided not to withhold this glider from competition and cross-country pilots and is making the Stratus available to this group following requests from interested pilots.
Michael Hartmann has put all of his competition experience into this product and impressed the experts with the STRATUS at the Stubai Cup 2002. Like the ASTRAL, the STRATUS was also designed with a new software programme.
For the first time, attention can be given to distortions in the canopy right from the paraglider's development phase. This noticeably reduces the undesirable micro-folds in the fabric, which has a direct effect on glide performance and speed.
Furthermore, the more uniform development ensures an almost flawless and integrated picture of the physical characteristics of the paraglider.

Materials

A new combination of materials is also used for the STRATUS.
We have used a 44 g/m silicone fabric from Perseverance for the top surface.
The proven WT 7 from Toray is used for the bottom surface.
This combination of materials allows moisture to escape from the inside of the paraglider by diffusion, despite a good porosity reading for the top surface.

Flying characteristics

Comparisons with the world's current best competition gliders at Stubai Cup 2002 show that the STRATUS is one of the strongest performing wings in the high-performance area.
It has good launch behaviour and this, along with its response to problems during flight, which can be mastered by proficient pilots, mean that the STRATUS is of interest for more than just the world elite.

Special designs

In general there are two ways to individualise the paraglider,

  • firstly by a special design (see below) and,
  • secondly, by adding an advertising message to it.

Paraglider sponsoring

Here are some facts and information which you may find helpful in finding sponsors or applying for sponsorship.
