This is yet another piece in a long line of classic reflex paragliders, from Traper through Action and ReAction, up to Nucleon and Nucleon WRC.
This model is dedicated for the cross-country pilots, middle echelon of competitors and weekend sight-seers. It is stable, safe, agile and very agreeable in steering.
Design and purpose
NOTE – the last items are available in stock!
We no longer accept new orders.
The Nucleon XX, like the WRC, was manufactured in Flexi Edge technology, offering better leading edge aerodynamics. Another key feature is the Shark Nose profile, guaranteeing high pressure in cell intakes area (=even better safety) in full speed/angle of attack range. Also the 3D ballooning was taken into account even more precisely than earlier wings.
Due to these and other solutions the quality of launch was improved and the leading edge is even stiffer, offering further protection against collapses.
As another effect we’ve got increased lift, so the canopy is able to carry bigger loads. As a direct result all sizes are somewhat smaller, up to 3 qm per given pilot weight.
Forthe first time in this category we’ve decided to offer the 2D steering as standard feature. This includes precisely designed progression, so the paraglider can be steered surely and effortlessly. At high speeds the paraglider can be very precisely steered with new, improve, light TST handle.
Nucleon XX sports anniversary colour design of the four elements – Air, Water, Earth and Fire.
It is certified for paramotoring in the ULM scheme.
When ordering the wing please specify your preferred hangpoints (high or low), so that we can prepare your risers accordingly (position of steering handles and balls).
With none information received, paraglider will be expedited with low hangpoint setting. Of course switching the configuration is relatively easy to do at any time.
P&R - Push & Relax Technology
Push&Relax technology – PPG canopies marked with this symbol demonstrate exceptionally stable flight on full speed bar, that is at high speeds.See more
DOA - Dudek Optimized Airfoil
Dudek Optimized Airfoil It incorporates all our experiences stemming form previous designs and as a special feature is optimized with dedicated engineering software.See more
DRA - Dudek Reflex Airfoil
DRA – Dudek Reflex Airfoil -applied in PPG wings fully autostabilised arofoil, based on long years of research and experience. In our variant we managed to get rid of typical flaws associated with these aerofoils.See more
CSG - Canopy Shape Guard
CSG – Canopy Shape Guard – is our unique system controlling canopy coherence. It is because of this system that our wings are equally tensioned, smooth, stable and… simply remarkable.See more
LR - Laser Technology
Capabilities of the laser cutter allow for serial cutting of complicated shape narrow elements in large numbers, their optimal placing in relation to structure of the textile and highest possible precision of cut.See more
FET - Flexi Edge Technology
The leading edge is closed to the airflow, and its precise shape is kept with laminated cloth reinforcements, incorporating synthetic rods. The rods make the leading edge stiffer and smoother, bringing improvements in many areas – from easier inflation, through stiffening the canopy in flight to improved general airflow.See more
ACS - Auto Cleaning Slots
Dedicated slots automatically removing dirt from the wing tips.See more
TCT - Triple Comfort Toggle
An easy conversion from hard through medium to soft brake handles. Equippped with a swivel adn Easy Keeper.
Available standard (bigger) and short (smaller) versions.
EK - Easy Keeper
Indigenous way to hold the brake handles at the risers that keeps them firmly in place, while both attaching and releasing goes smoothly and easily. Used in most of our handles (TCT, ACT, SCT).See more
TR - Trimmers
A trimming system for additional angle of attack regulation. Used mainly in PPG wings.
This system features replaceable trim straps. After prolonged or intensive operation they need to be replaced, as they get damaged by buckle edges.
SS - Speed System
A system of lines and pulleys sewn to the appropriate straps, connected to the bar hanging under the harness. It enables smooth adjustment of the angle of attack during the flight.See more
ALC Plus - Alternative Steering System +
ALC+ allows for aggressive turns even at full speed without excessive alteration of the reflex airofoil. It is especially important in case of bigger canopies, inherently haunted by significant steering forces and low agility. When necessary, only the main steering handle can be used, with the ALC+ system ignored (rendering it inactive).See more
TST - Tip Steering Toggles
Our original idea, featuring additional miniature handles that steer the stabilizers. It is a great improvement on long flights, when opened trimmers and full speedbar make steering much harder.See more
ELR - Easy Launch Riser
Split ‘A’ riser makes for easier launch and ‘big ears’.See more
PA- Power Attack System
The PA (also known as Paap Kolar system) merges speed system with trimmer operation. It is devised only for competitors, understanding its effects and all difficulties involved.
The general idea is simple: pressing the speedbar simultaneously releases the trimmers (and vice versa, releasing speedbar closes the trimmers).See more

* 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.
