TWIN 5 - Double Pleasure

INNOVATIVE Solutions for double pleasure

Keep the well-proven and improve it with the latest technologies: this was the motto for the development of the TWIN 5. The goal was to further optimize SWING´s most successful tandem glider.

This was achieved with an improved leading edge design, 3D-Shaping, the use of flexible and durable rigid elements and other changes. The result: excellent start properties and an extremely stable canopy.

Just like its predecessor, the TWIN 5 offers great handling - almost like a solo glider. SWING kept the well-known high degree of passive safety. Fans of the TWIN 4 may therefore look forward to a familiar feeling in flight.

Once in the air, you will feel its great speed range and the glide performance, which could be increased using 3D-Shaping on the leading edge. At the end of the flight, pilot and passenger can look forward to a soft landing. This is based on the great slow flight characteristics, the gentle stall properties and an excellent flare behavior.

The TWIN 5 is ideal for professional tandem businesses. Especially with difficult conditions you will appreciate its optimal take-off and landing characteristics. So each flight begins and ends with a high degree of security.

Next to professionals the TWIN 5 targets all tandem pilots who appreciate great handling and best glide performance for relaxed and beautiful XC flights.

Testimonials

After really enjoying the Twin 4 and doing over 1000 flights on both of the models (Large and Small), We at Parapax.com Tandem Paragliding in Cape Town, South Africa, didn't think there could be a better Tandem wing.
We have flown most every wing imaginable, from Mac to Advance, Air design and K2 2, from Skywalk to Bion and when the Twin 5 was released, I thought it could only be a small improvement on the Twin 4.
I am very pleasantly surprised and it comes up even lighter, handles superbly, very noticeably in rough to very rough air and has a superior glide and top speed to the twin 4. We paramotor a lot and the Twin 5 is probably the best non-reflex paramotoring wing I can envisage.
Swing, thanks again for an excellent product. We are now proudly flying a couple of them for our season!  - Stef Juncker (Owner Parapax.com)
