SOMNIUM – for cross-country pilots with dreams

The SOMNIUM offers everything cross-country pilots are looking for: comfort, an aerodynamic seating position with little drag and thanks to Hybrid Protection, an impressive degree of passive safety. At only 3.7 kilograms (size S), the walk to take-off is made a lot easier.

More safety. The SOMNIUM is fitted with an innovative Hybrid Protector. When the harness is taken out of the bag the foam begins to expand. Once in the air, the foam protection is augmented by an airbag. This cushion of air not only supports the pelvic area - but protects the whole back. In its class, the SOMNIUM offers a unique level of passive safety.

More performance. The SOMNIUM is fitted with Split Loops. This ensures a comfortable seating position and simultaneously improves the performance of the wing during glides - the tendency to roll is damped and this has a positive impact on your glide ratio, especially in turbulent air. The streamlined design and slender pod underline this performance potential.

Less weight. Small packing size, little weight: due to its Hybrid Protection, the SOMNIUM can be packed small and at 3.7kg (size S) is extraordinarily light - without compromising on passive safety. The foam protector can be highly compressed and apart from the material, the airbag packs down to nothing. The SOMNIUM offers the complete package of performance, safety and little weight.

Flying without the pod

The SOMNIUM can be flown without the pod. It can be removed with very little effort and replaced with a stirrup. This is a useful feature when flying in non-thermic conditions or ridge soaring.
