About us - UP International

UP Team

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. 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.
