Universal is a first paraglider ever to smoothly and efficiently merge two aspects: – nicely hadling free-flying paraglider (with EN/B certificate), – full-blood paramotor canopy (conforming to the DGAC standard).Universal is a great free-flying recreational paraglider, including cross-country flights. Beginning XC pilots will surely appreciate exceptional comfort in uneasy thermals, resulting from considerable amount of reflex traits present in the design.
On activating the trimmers, Universal becomes a full reflex paramotor wing, good for both leisure and cruise flying, thermalling, last but not least for initial paramotor training.
No matter what kind of flying you choose, the Universal has a perfect launch, rigid canopy, is pretty agile, nicely handling and safe.
Exceptional versatility of the Universal is a result of its genesis. The wing was born as a byproduct of the Synthesis2 development process. One of the paths we’ve been following was creation of a relatively simple paramotor wing, featuring better economy, agility, easy launch and low power demand. Some of the prototypes did not stood up to legendary stability of the original Synthesis, but demonstrated many other valuable traits we did not like to drop. So, we’ve explored that path and as a result we proudly present the Universal, which will become a favourite of the beginner and recreational pilots, with or without a paramotor on their back. 正如我们所有的滑翔伞的情况下，设计借鉴了我们的长期经验，结合同时STAE的最先进的技术。通用在接收的最后阶段双方自由飞翔（EN-B）和动力伞（DGAC）的文件。
As is the case of all our paragliders, the design draws on our long-time experience, simultaneously incorporating stae-of-the-art technologies. The Universal is in last stages of receiving both free-flying (EN-B) and paramotor (DGAC) documents.
Beginner and recreational pilots flying exclusively paramotor. Perfectly suited for initial PPG training. Beginner and recreational pilots flying exclusively free. Beginner and recreational pilots flying mostly free, sometimes with paramotor. Beginner and recreational pilots flying mostly with paramotor, sometimes free.
Beginner and recreational pilots flying both free and paramotor.
Universal comes with trimmers mounted in factory, but(!) they are disabled(!), in the meaning they are secured with plastic buckle and hidden in a neoprene sock. Along with pilot skills, or by the judgement of instructors trimmers can be activated (half, of full), and ALC toggles can be mounted (ALC kit included in the bag).
More information we will put on Universal web page in a few days.
Relation to other paragliders
The tables below compare some of our paragliders’ features.
Universal集成了许多成熟的和一些新的概念，提高了飞行的舒适度和性能。 The Universal incorporates a number of proven and some novel concepts improving flight comfort and performance.
The Universal features Dudek Flexi Egde technology. Precise shape of the leading edge is ensured by reinforcements of laminated cloth combined with synthetic rods, which significantly improve launch performance and protect the paraglider against collapses at high speed.
Unique CSG system controls canopy coherence along its entire wigspan. Practically eliminating any lateral movements, it renders the canopy almost perfectly rigid.
Most of all, the CSG oversees three key factors: – it forms the canopy, so that its shape remains as close to designed 3D image as possible, with equally distributed loads. Lack of attention here would result in irregular surface with balloons instead of flat cells (unfortunately, still quite a frequent sight, even on wings of ‘renowned’ manufacturers). – CSG stabilizes canopy in flight. No pilot likes to see his wing moving like an accordion, especially as it does significantly hamper its performance. – CSG improves durability of the paraglider. Simple designs pay for locally accumulated stress with deformations – the most dangerous are those visible as lateral faults on the upper surface between suspension line rows. With the Universal that danger has been practically eliminated.
VSS (V-shaped Supports) – densely placed diagonal supports, bolstering each rib on both sides (most wings have only one-sided supports). Their size, shape and placement make sure that no lateral folds will occur – a vital factor in preserving laminar airflow, especially at high speeds.
RSS (Reinforcing Strap System) – an independent reinforcement net on lower surface, strengthening and stiffening the whole canopy.
OCD (Optimized Crossports Design) – the intercellar openings of carefully designed shapes, optimally placed between stress lines in the ribs.
CCS (Closed Cell Structure) – This is a number of closed cells in the most important places. Its goal is to hinder the backflow from the cells out, thus facilitating their refill and canopy recovery in case of a collapse.
The only flaws of the CSG are the increase in weight (about 1 kg), material- and labour consumption, and of course overall cost. Yet it is well worth the sweat, as in turn we get a no-compromise product of highest performance and quality, able to keep its original parameters for a long, long time.
The Universal is manufactured in new technology, utilising capabiities of precise laser cutter. The entire production process takes place at our Kowalewo facility, ensuring European quality and personal supervision of the designer himself.
布 上表面是由Dominico特克斯布（41克/平方米的重量）。 更低的表面特征34克/平方米的重量。同样布 肋是由Dominico特克斯硬为40g / m 2。 所有的增强件是由层叠SR-的平纹棉麻布PORCHER。
Upper surface is made of Dominico Tex cloth (41 g/m2 weight). Lower surface features the same cloth of 34 g/m2 weight. Ribs are made of Dominico Tex Hard 40 g/m2. All reinforcements are made of laminated SR-Scrim Porcher cloth.
All Universal lines have coloured polyester sheath, covering an inner core. Due to low number of lines we’ve made sure they are strong enough by choosing brown Technora fibres. In this way rigging remains strong and reliable.
All quick-links between risers and suspension lines are made of polished stainless-steel, with proven durability and restiance to corrosion. We use exclusively theattested quicklinks of French Peguet company.
ACS – Auto Cleaning Slots
ACS - 自动清洗插槽
On the wingtips you can find dedicated slots, automatically removing dirt from the canopy.
ALC+ Universal装备有替代操舵系统的一个新的版本。ALC +为更有效率和影响更相称的方式遮篷。实际上转向显得更加平滑。系统允许激进转弯，即使在全速，全无破坏反射剖面。这在较大尺寸尤其重要，而无需大的转向力和敏捷性差的困扰专门的解决方案。 转向部分是红球，固定磁铁把手，所以它不会在发射过程中纠结。它可以抓住在各种位置，并且不需要调整。此外，整个提升管方案简化了尽可能。当然，你可以自由地使用只是基本的转向手柄-与ALC忽略球，整个系统将保持无效。 The Universal is equipped with a new version of the alternative steering system. ALC+ is more efficient and affects the canopy in more proportionate way. In effect steering appears to be smoother. System allows for aggressive turns even at full speed, withour spoiling the reflex profile. This is especially important in bigger sizes, without dedicated solutions plagued by big steering forces and poor agility. The steering part is a handle with red balls, fixed by magnets, so that it does not tangle during launch. It can be grabbed in various positions and does not require adjustment. Additionally, the whole riser scheme has simplified as much as possible. Of course you are free to use just the basic steering handles – with ignored ALC ball the whole system will stay inactive.
TEA (Torque Effect Adjuster) 将TEA（转矩影响调节器）
该功能的任务是，以抵消发动机转矩的作用，趋向于转滑翔伞相反的螺旋桨的旋转。TEA平衡扭矩通过调整一些翼尖线的长度，并且它可以进行调整，以适应所动力伞/螺旋桨的特定组合。使用简单，有效且很容易切换上与空气中的。 The task of this feature is to counteract the effect of engine torque, tending to turn the paraglider opposite to the propeller’s rotation. TEA balances the torque by adjusting the length of some wingtip lines, and it can be adjusted to match you specific combination of paramotor/propeller. Simple to use, effective and easy to toggle on & off in the air.
Split ‘A’ riser (marked with yellow band) for easier launch and ‘big ears’ application.
Speed System Speed system affects the A, B and C risers, adding ca. 7 km/h to your airspeed. Features ball-beared pulleys (see below) and a special cord. It has a new, thick-woven pattern, does not fray, does not stretch and perfectly fits our new pulley.
Easy Catch – comfortable speedbar The “Easy Catch” is a godsend for all those who have problems catching the bar after starting. Here the speedbar is designed to stay always in front of the speedsystem lines. Its finish is very robust, so long-term service is guaranteed.
Ball-bearing pulleys As a first world company we have decided to use ball-bearing pulleys as standard on paramotor wings, in order to minimize speed-system friction. Currently we are using Dudek Smart Pulleys of our own design. Prepared two levels of the pulley positions let you adjust the system to your suspension height.
