Agility, speed or economy – interrelations of these parameters are not only a challenge for the constructor, but also the criteria that guide experienced pilots in choosing the perfect sports wing. WARP is an attempt to balance them so that the economy does not suffer from speed, speed from maneuverability, and agility from the economy...
The Warp is our new high-end sports performance paramotor wing for experienced pilots, searching for speed, agility and economy in one package, who participate in classic and/or slalom competitions and are perfectly familiar with active piloting.
Comparing it to our other performance designs, we can say that Warp is the bringing together of Snake XX and Hadron XX. Faster than both, it is as agile as Snake XX and efficient as Hadron XX. In thermal conditions, its behaviour is similar to a free-flying wing, with a good climb, glide and intuitive operation.
Designed purely for advanced pilots with winning in mind. We strongly recommend a minimum of 100 hours airtime on similar class (Snake, SnakeXX, Hadron, Hadron 1.1, HadronXX), with a minimum of 300 hours of total paramotor flight. These recommendations are not exaggerated, and we strongly advise you to take them seriously.
The Warp is a hybrid of 3 and 4-liner, since only such arrangement allows full adjustability of the profile geometry via the trimmer, speed and PA system (Power Attack) operation.
Shark-nose on the leading edge provides greater aerodynamics of the canopy and higher internal pressure at a wide range of angles of attack. The leading edge is stiffened with synthetic rods (Flexi Edge Technology), which significantly improve the launch quality and guard against deformations during high-speed flight. In addition, the leading edge is further stabilized by the reinforcements between the cells (LE2R technology – Leading Edge Double Reinforcements).
The all-new riser system provides excellent control in accelerated flight. A large speed range is achieved with the standard speedbar travel.
The PA (Power Attack) system, which we introduced to the sport in 2009, was initially adapted to individual paragliders and made available for the very best pilots only. In Warp, the PA system combines the speed system with the trimmer in a permanent manner, yet allowing for independent adjustment of the trimmers, which is very useful during some combined tasks.
The B riser is suspended on a pulley, minimising resistance during speed system operation.
Warp as standard comes equipped with 2D controls. In the 2D layout, both the main control and the tip steering line are attached to the main control handle. This system allows the pilot to either independently control the tip of the wing and the centre of the trailing edge, or both at once. Thanks to the separation of the main control, the experienced pilots can adjust the progression of pulling the trailing edge to suit their preferences. Warp does not have a separate small TST handle, which simplifies control over the riser system both during takeoff and in flight.
Trimmers and speed system allow you to change of angle of attack and raise the rear part of the wing, so that its projected surface and chord decrease by circa 15%, increasing the loading and speed of the wing as well as moving the centre of pressure (lift) forward, thus increasing the longitudinal stability of the wing. This change in load gives the Warp greater resistance to collapses and increases its projected aspect ratio so that the pilot can enjoy better performance and stability, especially at higher speeds.
With trims closed the Warp has less reflex present; this is compensated by the smaller wing sizes (approx 1m2) in comparison to its sister wings, Snake XX and Hadron XX.
The main rigging lines are sheathed, and the upper gallery lines being unsheathed.
In general, Warp is our next generation wing for experienced competition PPG pilots. We are convinced that they will be impressed by its capabilities.
Here at Dudek, we do not only work on solutions for staying in front in wing design but also constantly improve the quality of production. This is why the Warp is constructed from the highest quality fabrics – Porcher Skytex – which combined with in advanced processes of laser cutting, precise sewing and attention to detail culminates in a world-class product.
Warp comes in three colour scheme moods – energy, harmony and passion.
Ultimately, Warp will be available in 8 sizes – (14), 15, 16, 17, 18, 20, 22 and 24. We recommend choosing the upper half of the weight range of a given size, as in this configuration you can use all of Warp’s strengths to the maximum effect.
Warp like all our other wings is manufactured entirely in-house at our Polish European facility, allowing us total control over each and every production process.
Caution: In the German magazine Paramotor, our Warp test appeared. It is reliable and factual so we encourage you to read it.

Design solutions, technologies and other functionalities are listed below in the Technologies section.
SN - Shark-nose
Airtakes designed and executed in Shark-nose technology meaning specific, concave shape of the reinforced profile area at its leading edge (the name comes form the very shape, reminding shark’s nose).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
LE2R - Leading Edge Double Reinforcements
Leading Edge Double Reinforcements are additional reinforcements between the cells, which stiffen the leading edge and keep the profile ‘clean’ during the flight at full speed.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
2D - Steering System
2D system is generally similar to the classic one – pilot has but two main steering handles to steer. However, it’s operation is significantly different. Due to division of main steering lines (there are two for each side now, with one of them going outside of the pulley), an experienced pilot can modify steering progression according to his own preferences.See more
ELR - Easy Launch Riser
Split ‘A’ riser makes for easier launch and ‘big ears’.See more
TEA - Torque Effect Adjuster
The task of this feature is to counteract the effect of engine torque, that tends to make the paraglider turn in the direction opposite to the propeller’s rotation.
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 +/- 5 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.
