UP Lhotse - The Adventure Paraglider

The new UP Lhotse (EN B) sits between the UP Kibo and the UP Summit XC Series in the UP model range - but as a lightweight hike&fly and adventure glider it is so much more than just a new mid-level EN B wing!

In order to be able to concentrate on the adventure at hand, you need a wing that won't let you down in any way. The new UP Lhotse is such a wing; it has all the performance you need for long XC adventures in the backcountry regions of our beautiful planet, it is built light, and it is tough enough to withstand the challenges out there.
