Axis have released a new EN-D paraglider, the Venus 4. It’s aimed at “demanding XC pilots” and makes a good choice for competition pilots wanting a bit of extra security say Axis.
A three-liner with a sharknose profile, Axis say the performance of the Venus 4 is not far from that of CCC class wings, yet it has EN-D certification and good passive safety.
The Venus 4 is also relatively light, at 4.9kg in the M size, meaning it has hike-and-fly potential too.
Vitek Fedra took a Venus 4 for a 406km spin in November 2014 (see the flight details here), proving its abilities.
The Venus 4 is certified EN D in sizes S, M and L, with XS and XL to follow.
