AXIS Comet 2, the new ‘hot wing’ from AXIS factory which put big smiles onto sport-intermediate class pilots. It just provides a great balance of true performance, improved stability and fine handling.

New Comet 2 is actually the most popular glider in our range simply because it is dedicated to the widest pilot audience. Second generation of Comet is a giant leap in performance and fun factor improvements.
Yes, we always say that we improve our gliders, but simply that’s what we do. Evolution is process of no conclusion on our journey in designing new paragliders.

Axis Comet 2 has been designed in a thin ellipse shape with relatively high 5.7 aspect ratio. AXIS designers achieved 40% line reduction compared to its predecessor Comet 1, which means a huge drag reduction and a modern three line design.

All these features combined with revolutionary APS system leading edge and new speed system allow Comet 2 to achieve maximum speed around 57 km/h.
APS – optimally pressurized leading edge is used on Axis wings for the very first time. APS system provides a high collapse canopy resistance, especially at maximum speeds. Speed system has been finely retuned and requires 40% less power for full engagement compared to previous model.

Axis Comet 2 is manufactured from well-known Skytex 38 g/m2. Brakes are newly equipped with “Power steering feature” taken from our competition glider AXIS Mercury Sport. This allows more effective steering also with less power needed to brake. It provides a solid handling, high spin resistance even in rough conditions, while maintaining comfort and confidence factors.

Suspension lines are a combination of Dyneema and Vectran in range (0,5mm – 1,4mm). The leading edge is stabilized by plastic string reinforcement. This solution improves maximum speed by 3 km/h and improves gliding ratio. Reinforcement straps on trailing edge also maintain smoother profile. All these new features mean one thing – Pure Joy!
Comet’s flying performance is now easily comparable to EN C gliders while keeping all safety standards of safe EN B glider. We believe that many pilots will be tempted to step down the class to fly new Comet 2 machine. Just give us a call to arrange a demo flight!

New Comet 2 is manufactured in standard S, M and L sizes: ranging from 60 to 120 kg. For pilots outside this range we offer custom sizes: XS 55-75 kg, and XL 110-135 kg.

New Comet 2 is a perfect choice for pilots, who:

  • Have been flying regularly for 1-2 years since passing their license and looking to start their XC careers.
  • Love ambitious XC wings, but within EN B safety standards
  • Fly regularly and possibly combine paragliding with other sports
  • Enjoy to fly well balanced gliders with fun and safety features
  • Require agile glider with precise handling and direct canopy feedback
