Swing Europe Cirrus

swing-cirrus


Following on from the Nimbus, the Swing Cirrus was designed for performance, cross country and competition. Swing developed diagonal V-tapes system combined with additional bridges for the demands of a glider in this glass. The Cirrus uses Carrington sail material.

The Cirrus 2 for cross-country and competitive pilots who still want a DHV certified glider. Originating directly from the competition wing Cirrus, and equipped with diagonal tape construction which has been further developed, the Cirrus 2 has a 3 year (or 300 flight hours) warranty for the complete package.

A very good rate of glide is achieved even at high speeds over 50km/h.

The Cirrus 3 performance model was aimed at the "ambitious cross country and competition pilots", and its design was derived from the competition model Stratus 4. Construction features include full diagonal ribs and "a line geometry that reduces drag and is thus conducive to efficiency", according to the German company. They used Perseverance PN 6 for the top surface of the canopy and Toray WT 7 for the bottom surface; and it can be ordered with competition lines made from unsheathed aramid lines. Swing remarks that it has a "very sensitive and precisely defined handling, which gives the pilot constant feedback during flight and an excellent glide potential throughout the speed range". Aspect ratio is 5,8; maximum speed is claimed to be around 54 k/h, and the size 24 has passed DHV certification 2-3.

Cirrus 3


Very precise production specifications for the manufacture of the Cirrus 3 result in a product with high aerodynamic quality, which gives increased performance, particularly with elaborately constructed paragliders. Swing has used the combination of 44g/sq.m silicone-coated Perseverance PN 6 for the top surface and Toray WT 7 for the bottom surface.

The distinctive features of the Cirrus 4 are its elongated shape and its profile, which is a modified version of the Stratus 5 profile. The Cirrus 4 fulfils the requirements for DHV 2-3 certification, given the many elaborate design features which increase its safety, whilst maintaining the high-performance profile of the Stratus family of gliders.

The Cirrus 4 has a very flat polar curve, even at high speed, which creates the best conditions for long glides, and smooth and reactive handling, which makes it very agile.
