When setting out to design Venus III glider we had a clear target: we wanted to create the best paraglider for experienced and cross-country pilots. Pilots who want top performance and sensitive handling, but who rightly demand security.

Description of Axis Venus III

The Venus III has evolved from our highly successful competition glider the Mercury ’08 and shows the same friendly handling that made the Mercury such a popular glider choice with both cross-country and competition pilots. The Venus III is a 3-line concept with similar line consumption to our MercuryIII.

The combination of unsheated Liros Dyneema and Cousin Vectraline give the Venus III an impressive reduction in drag when compared to the Venus II with consequent increase in speed and glide. Performance is at the top of the EN D, LTF D class.

With an internal structure based on the successful Mercury competition glider the Venus III includes our unique differential speed system. This means pilots can achieve a good sink-rate at half or one-third speed bar, and maintain good stability at maximum speed: in short, it gives the glider excellent usable speed.

The Venus III is a performance glider (EN-D) and is meant for qualified pilots who hold a full paragliding pilot licence. It is designed as an ideal cross-country and competition glider, suitable for very experienced pilots who fly regularly and who will enjoy a performance glider with good safety characteristics.
