2,5-LEINER MID-B

2,5-LEINER MID-B

2.5-LINER | CELLS: 51 | ASPECT RATIO: 5.6 | WEIGHT: 4.0 KG (SIZE XS) | CERTIFICATION: EN/LTF B

The first 2.5-liner for the Mid-B class! The KIBO X (EN/LTF B) has everything you need for a successful and relaxed flight: the performance and top speed of a hybrid, the high passive safety of an intermediate paraglider and, last but not least, the great fun factor of finely tuned handling. This combination convinces talented B-class-newcomer as well as advanced pilots - even in demanding conditions.

Franta Pavlousek (UP glider designer): "Why only offer 2.5-liners from the top B segment upwards? We have thoroughly tested various approaches in construction and chose the hybrid 2.5-liner concept for the final prototype. It simply has shown advantage in all aspects: performance, handling and even safety - compared to the classic 3-liner prototypes we tested. In other words: In the development of the KIBO X, the hybrid construction has merged so well with its high safety aspect that the result can be called mid-B with a clear conscience. This makes state-of-the-art design and top performance accessible to an even wider target group."

  • Maximum performance with large safety reserves at the same time
  • Improved pitch stability
  • Lively handling, new top speed and pleasant feedback in thermals
  • Miniribs for an aerodynamically optimised trailing edge
  • BTS Brake Reefing System for the best possible thermal characteristics
  • Double 3D panel shaping & 3D negative panel shaping for optimised leading edge profile fidelity
  • FSS (Front Section Support) & RSS (Rear Section Support) on top and bottom sail for high performance and stability in turbulence
  • New HPR risers (High Performance Risers) with option for highly efficient "C" control
  • At UP, the "X" in the glider name stands for "cross" and therefore for hybrid 2.5-liners, which combine the best of the 2-liner and 3-liner designs
