UFO Paragliding Wing

UFO Paragliding Wing

The new UFO follows the original idea behind its predecessor: to be the simplest and easiest tool for hike&fly! Super sweet handling make it equally suitable for beginners in the larger sizes.

A single surface wing, with a very impressive airspeed, designed for lightness and durability. Certified EN A, B, or C depending on size and weight in flight. Very easy to control on launch, pitch stable but still responsive in turns, and a 7:1 glide ratio.

Specification

Construction & Features

  • Double coated Skytex, doubled seams and etching tape on edges: robustness is the key.
  • For the first time in the product range, the lines are unsheathed Aramid but color-coded! Solidity has never been so easy to untangle.
  • The use of Nitinol rods not only saves weight and increases robustness, it also allows a super compact folding… To always slip into your rucksack.
  • Leading edge and trailing edge are with mylar-border band. This ensures a structural consistency for not changing the wing’s flying behaviors.
  • Struts have disappeared from the surface for an even cleaner, simpler design, and more compact folding. Few ribs are supported by Nitinol rods instead.
