General

The performance potential of the STRATUS concept has been demonstrated since 2002 and 2003 through the results achieved by many good SWING pilots. The STRATUS design has been improved once again thanks to the tireless commitment of the SWING development team led by the designer and competition pilot Michael Hartmann.
The result is the STRATUS 5. It represents controllable high performance in paraglider design and will help make your ambitious goals a reality!

Target market

Competition and cross-country pilots with the highest performance demands

Flight behaviour

The STRATUS 5 has much higher canopy stability compared to its predecessors in both unaccelerated and accelerated flight.
This improvement was achieved by profile changes and additional design elements in the wing design.
The resulting possibilities for trim adjustment were optimised through an extensive series of tests by a team made up of internationally renowned pilots .
The result of this complex work is a higher Vmax and noticeably better glide in unstable air.
The handling too was reworked by this specialist team and it guarantees effective centring even in rough thermals.

The high-end glider is available in five sizes with Breitenerprobung (second stage of the DHV prototype license).

Workmanship

High-quality materials ensure durability!
For the top surface of the canopy a 44 g/m², siliconised nylon fabric is used which has high UV resistance.
A particularly stiff and tear-resistant PU coated nylon fabric is used for the bottom surface and ribs to comply with requirements.
The unsheathed Edelrid Aramid lines, HMA 8000, demonstrate very high strength for the same or less diameter than the HMA 7000.
The new line material with the special braiding technique contributed in the load test to the sensationally high score of 1200 kg, which allows a theoretical start weight of 150 kg with a safety factor of 8.

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.
