Mirage RS Plus
The Mirage RS was the glider which redefined speedflying when it was introduced. The Mirage RS Plus is the next stage in its development, joining its speed wing brother to have 15Dtex fabric, making it lighter and smaller to pack with beautiful launch characteristics. It's no wonder that some of the worlds best pilots fly one (the soul Flyers, Valentin Deluc and many more). The Mirage is the glider for speed flying and speed riding.
Improvements to the risers on the Mirage RS Plus make it even more intuitive to fly. The optimised trimmer system allows for more precise adjustment to the angle of attack and comes with a deflector on the B level. The operation of the trimmer has changed too with a 'T' handle replacing the old loop allowing for easier, faster and safer operation, even with thick gloves.
All in all the Mirage RS Plus is the one stop shop for speed flyers, whether you are experienced or just starting out on carving down the mountain.

Sizes 13 and 15 are the most suitable for training and novices due to the trimmer travel. The dampened handling in these sizes is very forgiving and is ideal while learning.
In addition, these sizes are also ideally suited for soaring in strong winds or ground handling, or for those needing a rapid descent method for hike and fly trips.

With the extended loadd test and riser with two hangpoint heights, the Mirage RS Plus 17 Twin is ideally suited fpr safe tandem flights and also for heavier speed flying / speed riding novices.
