SENSIS…Your Sixth Sense  

Comfort and performance. With the new Sensis, Swing presents a sophisticated leisure intermediate paraglider for a broad group of pilots in the mid EN-B segment. A glider which excels with simple and precise handling, combined with pleasant damping, pitch stability, high passive safety and impressive performance. The Sensis is a balanced and fun wing, which gives a lot and asks little. Made for leisure pilots who want to enjoy themselves with recreational thermaling and/or cross country flying, as well as fun & freestyle. It is forgiving and easy to control, even in turbulent air. It offers maximum control and is very stable.

An elegant, compact wing, which simply feels good, almost as if it is flying by itself and which allows you to enjoy your flight experience with all your senses: intuitively, like your sixth sense.

Designing the Sensis paraglider, the latest simulation methods have been applied and Swing incorporated plenty of high-tech from the upper classes. These include 3D-shaping of the leading edge, a complex interior structure and miniribs. Only 3 rows of lines on the risers also make the start preparations a breeze.
