UP International About us

About UP

UP is synonymous with free flight, having been at the forefront of development since 1972. With more than 40 years of history in the free-flying world, nobody can touch the heritage that UP has.

About UP
UP was originally an acronym for Ultralight Products. Today, the brand name is simply UP International, and the mission is to build the highest performing yet easy paragliders in all performance categories. Our team, headed by Swedish paragliding pioneer Christian Rönning, continues to strive for that perfect mix of performance and handling that will bring a manic grin onto the face of paraglider enthusiast every time they take to the skies.
