£2,900.00A GLIDER FOR EVERYBODY With the new UP Kibo (EN B), UP puts a whole new product branch on the UP family tree The ideal mid-range EN B glider, and a perfect all-rounder at heart, the UP Kibo is built to progress on – it is the perfect mix between a very safe and forgiving beginner's wing and a performance-and-XC paraglider, meaning it will teach its pilot exactly how performance gliders fly, but it will look after them while doing so. It sits comfortably between the new Makalu 4 and the new Summit XC4 in the UP model range. Safe and easy to fly but with loads of real-air performance New Generation Aerofoil (NGA) for a solid leading edge and great penetration in turbulence Perfect stepping-stone for pilots wishing to progress in comfort and safety Glide performance to make those big valley crossings in real conditions a breeze Very stable even at top speed due to our Nylon Front Section Support system (FSS) Precise, linear handling similar to the high- performance UP models C-riser controllable 2. generation Brakeline Tensioning System (BTS2) for better handling with less line consumption Mini-rib canopy construction Light and efficient speed system with Ronstantm pulleys Double 3D panel shaping technology – less wrinkles, less drag Half-moon shaped cell openings - maximum leading edge integrity, minimal drag 4 sizes, covering hook-in weights from 65kgs to 130kgs
£2,800.00A light but strong design, weighing just 3.3kgs in the M size Ideal glider for hike&fly adventures at home and abroad Easy to pack even in tight spots, using either the new UP Parasleeve or any traditional method Very easy launching in all conditions, to make your para-alpinism adventure safer and more fun Minimalistic but very efficient risers made from a combination of Kevlar-reinforced 12mm Nylon webbing and Dyneema cord Glide performance to make those big valley crossings in real conditions a breeze New Generation Aerofoil (NGA) for a solid leading edge and great penetration in turbulence Very stable even at top speed due to our Nylon Front Section Support system (FSS) Precise, linear handling similar to the high- performance UP models C-riser controllable 2. generation Brakeline Tensioning System (BTS2) for better handling with less line consumption Mini-rib canopy construction Light and efficient speed system with RonstanTM pulleys Double 3D panel shaping technology – less wrinkles, less drag Half-moon shaped cell openings - maximum leading edge integrity, minimal drag Safe, predictable flare to make landing in a tight spot easy and relaxing 3 sizes, covering hook-in weights from 65kgs to 120kgs**
£4,480.00WINNING PERFORMANCE AND HANDLING We designed the MERU for record breaking cross country flights, and top-level competitions. An aspect ratio of 6.9 combined with a sophisticated two-liner construction make the MERU the perfect glider for expert pilots to get the most out of their flying day. The MERU has the handling that UP is known for; direct, sharp and fun to fly. The MERU’s agility and communication mean that the pilot will find the thermal faster, and climb more efficiently. Complex internal structure combined with two-liner pitch control make the MERU very stable at speed, with awesome performance into a headwind. While flying it you feel that every little piece of lift is converted into height, while the glider searches out more lift. With optimized attachment points, 84 cells, and a super clean leading edge the MERU is a true thermal surfer.
£3,100.00PERFORMANCE NEVER FELT BETTER The Summit XC4 is a high-end EN B wing that is very easy to fly, and even more to the point, it is a wing that is very easy to fly far on. The handling is close to that of our popular high-end EN C wing, the Trango XC3, meaning it will communicate with its pilot, and let them know precisely what is going on where, without feeling nervous in the process. The glide at high speeds, critical for headwind performance on XC flights, has been improved compared to the Summit XC3, and with the light and efficient speed system and the very stable aerofoil there is simply no reason to hang around - just mash that bar, comfortable in the knowledge that you can control any forward pitch with the C-handles even before they turn into proper surges. New Generation "sharknose" Aerofoil, to maintain optimal internal pressure at all angles of incidence, FSS* and RSS to maintain aerofoil integrity at all angles of incidence as well as improve collapse resistance, New riser design with efficient C-steering ability, Optimised aspect ratio of 4.8 (projected)**, to improve gliding performance and energy retention on fast, turbulent glides, Brake Tensioning System (BTS2), helps us to achieve the class-leading climbing performance and improves handling, BB pulleys used throughout on the speed system for a soft, efficient speed bar, Speed system which changes the AoA differently across the span, leading to more stability at high speeds, rare collapses and more benign reactions to collapses (hence the EN B rating), Our 3D panel shaping leads to less wrinkles in the canopy, better performance and higher collapse resistance, Low-drag line layout means minimum drag and better performance, Swept-back wingtips for improved handling, better climbing, Mini ribs in the trailing edge for perfect trailing edge definition, improved handling and climbing, and a more comfortable ride, Optimised combination of Dyneema and Technora lines for best longevity and a stable AoA even in strong turbulence, no unwanted pitching upon thermal entry, Handling and feel a perfect mix of Summit XC and Trango XC Series, meaning extreme efficiency with high fun-factor! *) Front Section Support system/ Rear Section Support system; Nylon battens in leading- and trailing edges, respectively **) 6.3 flat A/R
