Hadron 3 is a paraglider combining the best of Hadron XX and Hadron 1.1 for the efficient cross-country flying. Precise steering, stable flight, great performance.

Design and Purpose

This wing is dedicated for the active and much flying pilots, who know the character of reflex paragliders and can manage them well. The recommended minimum is 200 hours paramotor time and at least 80 hours of annual flight time.

Hadron 3 has been designed as a solid vehicle for fast covering the ground. It features wide speed range, precise steering and great performance.

It launches flawlessly and easy, smoothly rising up. Does not stay behind, even with trimmers set at slow and nil wind.

Reflex airfoil of Hadron 3 stays almost constant, and the speed system can be safely used at all trimmer settings. When cutting through lift or turbulence the canopy stays over your head with only slight nicking, so it doesn’t require your constant attention.

Design

Hadron 3 has its roots in the Hadron XX, but blends its agility with ease of operation of the Hadron 1.1. Many design solutions are new, from the very efficient airfoil, through risers, to the brake handles.

  • Shark-nose (SN) on the leading edge takes care of better aerodynamics of this part of the canopy, as well as higher inner pressure at wide range of the attack angles (meaning airspeed).
  • The leading edge is stiffened with synthetic rods of the FET (Flexi Edge Technology), distinctly improving launch quality and guarding against collapses at high speeds.
  • Additionally, there is another technology present: the LE2R (Leading Edge Double Reinforcements) between the cells. This brings much cleaner airfoil on the leading edge at high speeds.
  • The design features also other effective methods of canopy loads distribution, mediated by most modern sewing technologies.
  • Hadron 3 features maximally simplified riser design, does not have the Power Attack (PA), nor other complicated adjustment tools.
  • Its rigging has three rows of lines (3L), while the steering system is our well known, original solution of 2D steering, this time with new TCT+ handle (Triple Comfort Toggle), combining features of both the TCT and TST (Tip Steering Toggle).
  • As per our standard, the risers are equipped with three optional positions for the steering pulleys and magnets to choose from. Thanks to all these features, steering operation is straightforward and intuitive.
  • Obviously, in some powerpack/canopy configurations considerable amount of torque can appear. To counter this, there is proven in our Warp an automatic TEA system (Torque Effect Adjuster). It works on its own after placing the line on proper side, depending on the torque direction.The trimmer tapes are designed as replaceable in case of excessive wear.

Hadron 3 is manufactured entirely in Europe, at our Polish plant, so that we have total control over its sophisticated production process (using among else the advanced LT (Laser Technology) cutting.

* Speeds are given as estimated for the middle wing size and the middle of its weight range. These speeds can vary within +/- 3 km / h depending on the size, take-off weight and additional factors such as air pressure and temperature.

** The basic rule is to choose the size of the wing so that the take-off weight is in the middle of the weight range. Less weight on the wing (lower range take-off weight) can be considered for foot take-off, when flying in calmer conditions, or when we want to improve economy. More experienced pilots who want to fly dynamically, have higher speed and fly in more demanding wind conditions can consider greater wing loading (take-off weight in the upper range). This is a common option among trike users.

*** Note – the canopy significantly changes its behavior with increasing wing loading. The greater the loads, the greater skill and concentration of the pilot are  required.

  2. I understand that certain recreational activities that are conducted using equipment and accessories produced, assembled or sold by Iris Paramotor LLC, including but not limited to, paramotoring (also known as Powered Paragliding or “PPG”), paragliding, kiting /ground handling, gear maintenance, storage, transport, assembly and other directly or indirectly related activities, whether guided, instructed, self-directed or otherwise, including but not limited to, use of the equipment and accessories and our facilities (including parking lots, showroom, walkways, event tents) used for service, sale, instruction or for any other related reason (the “Activities”), CAN BE HAZARDOUS AND PRESENT A RISK OF SERIOUS PHYSICAL INJURY OR DEATH.

     

  3. I understand that in the United States, powered paragliding and some of the Activities listed above are classified under FAA Regulations part 103.7 as Ultralight Vehicles. It states that “An ultralight vehicle is not subject to Federal aircraft certification and maintenance standards.” and that “There is no assurance that a particular ultralight vehicle will have consistent performance, controllability, structural integrity, or maintenance. Your safety, and potentially that of others depends on your adherence to good operation and maintenance practices. This includes proper preflight techniques, operation of the vehicle within the manufacturer’s recommended flight envelope, operation only in safe weather conditions, and providing safety devices in anticipation of emergencies. Part 103 is based on the assumption that any individual who elects to fly an ultralight vehicle has-assessed the dangers involved and assumes personal responsibility for his/her safety.

I expressly acknowledge that: (a) Participant has studied and understands all rules and regulations of participation in the Activity; (b) Participant is responsible for complying with all rules, regulations and safe operation practices in all Activities; (c) Participant must have the physical ability,  dexterity and knowledge to safely operate all equipment and accessories; (d) proper training and instruction is the responsibility of the Participant (e) that emergency situations, unexpected engine failures, crashes, injuries and collisions occur and that injuries are a common and ordinary occurrence of the Activity; (f) PARTICIPANT HAS THE OPPORTUNITY TO INSPECT THE EQUIPMENT AND ACCESSORIES PRIOR TO PARTICIPATING in the Activity; (g) PARTICIPANT ASSUMES ALL RISK RELATED TO ASSEMBLING, CONFIGURING, STORING, INSPECTING, TRANSPORTING AND OPERATING EQUIPMENT.

6. Additionally, in consideration for allowing the Participant to participate in the Activity, I AGREE, to the greatest extent permitted by law, TO WAIVE ANY AND ALL CLAIMS AGAINST AND TO HOLD HARMLESS, RELEASE, INDEMNIFY, AND AGREE NOT TO SUE Iris Paramotor LLC and all their respective insurance companies, successors in interest, commercial & corporate sponsors, affiliates, agents, employees, contractors, representatives, assignees, officers, directors, and shareholders (each a “Released Party”) FOR ANY INJURY, INCLUDING DEATH, LOSS, PROPERTY DAMAGE OR EXPENSE, WHICH I OR PARTICIPANT MAY SUFFER, ARISING IN WHOLE OR IN PART OUT OF PARTICIPANT’S PARTICIPATION IN THE ACTIVITY, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THOSE CLAIMS BASED ON ANY RELEASED PARTY’S ALLEGED OR ACTUAL NEGLIGENCE OR BREACH OF ANY CONTRACT AND/OR EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTY OR BREACH OF ANY STATUTORY OR OTHER DUTY OF CARE. I UNDERSTAND THAT NEGLIGENCE INCLUDES FAILURE ON THE PART OF ANY RELEASED PARTY TO TAKE REASONABLE STEPS TO SAFEGUARD OR PROTECT AGAINST THE RISKS, DANGERS AND HAZARDS OF THE ACTIVITY.

In further consideration for allowing Participant to participate in the Activity, I FURTHER RELEASE AND GIVE UP ANY AND ALL CLAIMS AND RIGHTS THAT I MAY NOW HAVE AGAINST ANY RELEASED PARTY AND UNDERSTAND THIS RELEASES ALL CLAIMS, INCLUDING THOSE OF WHICH I AM NOT AWARE, THOSE NOT MENTIONED IN THIS RELEASE AND THOSE RESULTING FROM ANYTHING WHICH HAS HAPPENED UP TO NOW.
