Now available with comfort bar hook in as well the floating J bar. For the most comfort you can have and torque reduction that is unparalleled in any other unit.
Here is a shot of the Airboss motor. On the far left, the black tube is the intake silencer going up the frame beside which is the Bing float bowl carburetor. The re-drive belt is clearly seen. The tuned exhaust comes in from above, in the middle, and attaches to the muffler at the 90 degree joint. Most material is 6061 aircraft grade aluminum. The frame is 5024 aluminum for more bend resilience.
Here is a shot of the power head, showing the great engineering. All parts are designed to hug the center of the prop guard as closely as possible to reduce noise from the propeller.
This German engine has been a standard since the beginning of powered paragliding. Its robust reliability has been proven many thousands of times during the last 10 years. The tuned exhaust and silencer makes this motor agile and quiet. The HEIS ignition, along with the easy start engine modification, makes starting the motor as easy as child's play. The standard Fresh Breeze extra-large head allows cooler running, increased HP, and longer time between overhauls. Two prop sizes are available – 110 cm and 122 cm in diameter. An electric starter is available as an option, but not necessary. A quick-release system of the motor unit adds a plus of security. The certification from the DULV (German Ultralight Association) guarantees safety and quietness. The crankcase is reinforced with a special aluminum cross member for greater strength and durability.
The Solo 210
The Fresh Breeze XL Cylinder Head is added, which allows cooler running, increased HP, and longer time between overhauls. This is a special adjustment Fresh Breeze does.
The Fresh Breeze High Energy Ignition is added along with the easy start engine modification, making for far easier starting. This is a special assembly that Fresh Breeze adds and is not available in any other motoring unit.
The famous BING Float bowl carburetor is fitted for instant starting. Many other units have the less expensive Walbro carburetor that needs constant adjustment.
The Fresh Breeze tuned exhaust pipe is installed. This pipe is designed on the Fresh Breeze engine dyno to smooth out and lower the power band of the engine. Rpm are reduced to 6.000, for very quiet power and long life.
Southern Skies has all parts in stock, a very generous warranty as well as top technical support. Fresh Breeze has been developing motors for more than 20 years and has an established factory and a very experienced, long-term US importer. With a tradition of excellence and the experience to back it up, Fresh Breeze is a company you can count on.
Fresh Breeze comes with a superb composite propeller. Two prop/cage sizes are available – 110 cm and 122 cm in diameter.
Fresh Breeze uses a large, high mounted gas tank for reliable fuel delivery and long duration flights.
Fresh Breeze has a separate harness that allows for great weight shift and the harness can easily be used for ground handling. Most other harnesses are attached to the motor and are not removable.
All Fresh Breeze units are destructively tested and certified by DULV. No other unit offered in the US is DULV certified.
Fresh Breeze units feature a soft J-bar suspension system. This feature is paramount! It is a quick release that allows an emergency motor jettison feature (in compliance with German ultralight safety requirements) for even more enhanced security in flight. If there ever was a time where your motor caught on fire or a water landing, you can simply pull two pins, then slide the motor pack off your back and let it go. The chances are slim that this would ever happen, but Fresh Breeze is the only motor on the market that offer this degree of safety. It's like having a reserve parachute (which is a good idea as well!), you give yourself another option. This feature also gives you an excellent feel for your paraglider and the ability to weight shift your glider like no other unit out there. On climb out, you can simply cross your legs away from the turn induced by engine/propeller torque, and you are flying straight! Especially valuable when motoring to the thermals, where you will really appreciate this unique system.
