The Mirage RS is the next stage in the development of the Mirage, the glider which redefined speedflying when it was introduced. The Mirage RS is aimed at ambitious speedflying-pilots and has a focus on a further increased glide and dive range with increased safety and razor-sharp handling. With its large range, the Mirage RS adjusts to even steep contours, makes precise and more dynamic barrel rolls, has high energy reserves also at very low speeds and we optimized the control for longer and accurate swoop landings.
The RAST technology developed by SWING increases safety during flight, on foot launch and stabilises the canopy appreciably in turbulent conditions. The Mirage RS stands out with its precise and direct handling, greater speed and a touch more glide, but does not in any way sacrifice the very popular Mirage characteristics!
All of this makes the Mirage RS the ultimate All-Mountain Speedflyer no matter tough your runs and lines are.
Mirage RS 15
The Mirage RS 15 is the speedflying link to the APUS RS, our paraglider-miniwing. Size-optimised trimming means we have been able to retain the characteristics of the Mirage RS. With a flat wing area of 15.5m², this new size provides the ideal introduction into the world of speedflying. What’s more, it opens up many new opportunities to experienced miniwing pilots as well. The Mirage RS 15 is an all-rounder for almost every occasion, whether it’s for the descent in a hike & fly mission, with fun guaranteed (glider weight 2.8kg), soaring in strong winds or ground handling. The long trim travel offers a huge range with a high resistance to collapses, so the Mirage RS 15 can be flown intuitively along the contours of the land. With a surface area of 15.5 m², it offers a high level of safety and glide performance and greater flexibility in the choice of alpine launch sites. Unlike miniwings with paraglider profiles, the collapse-resistant speedflying profile and short lines make the Mirage RS a true carver, with dive and performance precisely adjusted for safe and uncomplicated mountain swooping. If you are flying at the coast or ground handling, with the Mirage RS 15, the fun takes over from where it endswith a conventional glider.
Mirage RS 15 – a fun wing you should never leave home without!

TheGolden 5 is the latest wing from the Gradient development team. The wing is the follow-up to the most successful Gradient model ever, the Golden series. The result is pure style, an aerodynamic design with an incomparable variety of uses and the potential to meet the demands of all kinds of pilots. The agility, lift, performance and speed of the Golden5 are backed up by strong passive safety. Gradient’s typical sensitive handling and immediate feedback means pilots relax and quickly start to fly in harmony with the wing. It makes the Golden5 a truly reliable partner. Flying becomes intuitive, leaving your mind free to concentrate on making decisions about your flight. Our aim was to create a glider which would follow tumultuous development of paragliding technology of the last years and at the same time would use the latest know-how in the development of materials. A glider which would bring further improvement of performance and still keep pilot comfort, dynamics, handling and safety typical for Gradient´s gliders. The glider also behaves in a calm and predictable way in extreme situations, leaving you confident of your safety while you regain normal flight – no matter if it was you or turbulence that caused the trouble. Flying the Golden5 starts with the typical, easy take-off characteristics Gradient pilots all over the world appreciate. In the air, the Golden5 thermals flat, even when flying small circles. The wing reacts immediately to weight shifting and has precise brakes. Well-balanced wing dynamics and a defined stall point give this intermediate glider typical Gradient handling.

Instantly recognisable as a Parajet, the Zenith is a unique and singular design statement. Good design, however, is not just about form; it is also about function. We achieve this through our unmatched precision manufacturing and consistency in production. We’re used to creating products that change the Paramotoring world but with the Zenith we’re not only bringing a new flying experience to pilots, we’re delivering an innovation, honed to be more efficient and more practical.
The EMOTION 3 is setting new standards in the field ofsafety and performance. There was never made such a huge effort before, to reach a new developing level. The test and construction workings on the new high-end A-wing lasted for more than a year. Many studies and prototypes were created and discarded and optimized through countless test flights.
The demands to the newest generation of the established EMOTION series were very high, nevertheless all expectations were exceeded with the new concept of the wing. U-Turn is relying on class-suitable gliders, and so during the development of the new A-class-wing everything was put under the motto of uncompromising passive safety.
The EMOTION 3 is combining sportive features with very high tolerance. Especially in turbulent air it is not easy to ruffle the wing – is a pressure compensation necessary anyway, the reactions turn out very moderate and damped. The high stability is supporting the outraging glide features and the rise performance of the EMOTION 3. Even in weak thermal the wing is rising very efficiently and is dynamically turned into curves, this is especially positively notable when centering in the thermal.
With the EMOTION 3 particular focus was put on reliable starting behavior. The wing is rising evenly and without tendency of the canopy diving forward. It is filling itself fast even at little wind and with small effort.
The EMOTION 3 is the perfect wing for beginners that promises the secure fun-factor even long after school. The wing is aimed at all pilots, who are looking a high-end A-class wing in the newest generation.
The EMOTION 3 is based on a new ground plan and a modified wing profile, which combines the glide performance with a very high tolerance spectrum. Chief constructor Ernst Strobl equipped the EMOTION 3 with 36 cells and a flat AR of 5, also the wing is equipped with the newest technical features. Besides the PPN, the 3D shaping is providing optimized inflow and form stability of the cell opening area. Elaborate calculations of the ballooning in combination with the optimized pre-tensioning of the wing are providing a balanced pressure distribution and circulation of the profile. Mini-ribs at the rear end of the wing are giving the profile more form fidelity and are optimizing the aerodynamics additionally, especially when braking. The High Pressure Crossport Design (HPCD) provides an ideal aeration of the crossports, which helps to balance the pressure differences on the inside of the wing, and therefore enhances the safety.
With the Emotion 3 the fun factor is not left behind because of the enormously high safety cushion. The starting miracle has much glide performance available, combined with a super easy handling and the currently highest safety level DHL Safety Class 2. Arrange a test flight and let yourself be convinced!
The riser are equipped with the Pilot Assistant (PAS) – at which, besides color codings, icons are providing a better orientation on the line levels. Additionally the main suspensions are furnished with the new standard color codings, that is providing better orientation when hooking in the harness.
The acro wing with the unbeatable handling! The story of success on the BLACKOUT is based on balanced canopy-harmony, which offers the perfect mix out of mistake-forgiving dynamic and precise handling. The BLACKOUT PLUS was able to achieve a clear improvement in terms of dynamics as well as the handling, without making the glider more aggressive. Much dynamic with easy handling, that is what makes the BLACKOUT PLUS equally suitable for hobby acro pilots and acro beginners as well as professionals.
