Not everybody had a chance to tame JANIS as well as the brand new high-performance EN-D wing is not for everybody either. But the agility, efficiency and the feeling of perfectly pressured canopy which reacts to your every move is similarly addictive to various funny substances used in 27 Club.
New way to reinforce the leading edge with nylon rods using the Air Scoop technology helps significantly to prevent frontal collapses of the JANIS’s leading edge even at the full speed in turbulent environment.
The nylon rods in back part of the profile deliver solid reinforcement and creates compact and mature sport reactions.
Thanks to the technology of mini ribs is the shape of the leading edge perfectly clean and the glider reacts to your active piloting immediately and precisely.
Comfortable handles, bearing rollers for smooth using the speed system covered with neoprene caps, handles on C-risers for precise and quick piloting when using the speed bar – that all to be found on lightweight risers of JANIS.
Smartly chosen combinations of line diametres lowers the frontal drag and incresase the in flight stability. Lines are distinguished with covers of different colours for easy recognition which also increase protection against abrasion. This will be well appreciated after your long flying hours experience with JANIS.
Smooth and quiet run of the break lines at the point where they are connected to the risers helps to pleasant feeling of JANIS. Thus you can react to the behaviour of JANIS immediately and more precisely.
This spring time, I have been very happy to fly again the category with flat aspect ratio 7,0. After the very first flight, it was obvious to me that our designer Alexej Rakov has made an excelent glider.
I have felt surprisingly great deal of passive safety and most importantly, it is so much fun to fly it. JANIS invites you to fly more and further to explore new places with excitement. High performance allows me to reach distant thermal hot spots. It is nicely agile to climb even the tiniest thermals as well as to manage quite steep ones. This is a great fun to do with JANIS. Ones who expect insecure feeling in strong thermals will be pleasantly surprised as JANIS is perfectly dirigible almost like a RC model. Smartly reinforced canopy allowes you to reduce or prolong the diametre of your turns and it reacts immediately to your steering. When I need to fly forward to overcome some turbulent area, the Air Scoop technology on the leading edge delivers more reinforcement of the canopy and thus eliminates the possibility of frontal collapses.
JANIS goes perfectly with the new CHOGORI harness, model 2017 and together they make nice gear set which has a huge potential and drive to fly with joy and pleasant surprises. This is something you must have.

How many times have you been thinking how it would feel to visit any time and place in human history with a time machine? Well 60’s, hippies, flowers, music, hitchhinking, meditation, Woodstock – this is my idea of the perfect place to hide for some time. Actually I would have needed some time limit as I am not quite sure if I could push the GO BACK button after a few weeks of this trip.
I think that Janis Joplin had the very same problem. She was from a different time too. She must have lost the time machine somewhere during a party so she pushed the speed-bar to the ground.
A very useful accessory is also a quick-pack, which you can order in the ruscksacks and packs section.
