The UP Rimo a safe and agile glider, ideal for beginner paragliding pilots. It is a combination of forgiving handling, high passive safety, and just the right amount of manoeuvrability and performance for maximum fun right from the start!
The 42-cell concept with shark-nose of the Rimo speaks for an all-round carefree glider that is neither over- nor under-demanding of the pilot. It is the perfect glider to practice, practice, practice, both on the ground and in the air. The Rimo's increased number of cells are complemented by a completely new and precise line layout. The top skin material to the 50% of the chord is the double-coated paraglider cloth Everlast from the renowned French manufacturer Porcher Sport. The construction and durable materials invite to extensive ground handling sessions. The pilot learns quickly and intuitively in the air, thanks to the forgiving handling. Maximum glider control provides the essence for a lot of fun and safety when paragliding. The new inclined rib system from UP is also being used for the first time in the Rimo. The cells on the lower canopy are of different widths, and the ribs are inclined. This guarantees perfect load distribution and a nice, clean upper surface for optimal airflow.
When launching, the glider comes up evenly without getting stuck or overshooting. In the air, the Rimo has a long brake travel with progressively increasing pressure, which offers forgiving handling. Landing with the Rimo proves to be extremely intuitive and manageable. Simultaneously, the glider is extremely manoeuvrable and offers the pilot a lot of joy in flying far beyond the training.
