The best paraglider is whichever one is best suited to the particular pilot.
We developed the MIURA RS for ambitious pilots who are looking for a glider with excellent properties in thermal flight, which they can use to perfect their skills over a number of years.
Already in the development phase the XC-Allrounder became the absolute favorite glider of our test pilots with its direct and precise handling.
The challenge we faced when developing the MIURA RS was to create a glider with enough performance for ambitious beginners to be able to get into thermalling and cross-country flying, but which still had the feeling of safety and comfort during flight found in a basic intermediate wing. As soon as we had tested the first prototypes, we knew that the MIURA RS was more than just an ordinary basic intermediate glider. Performance and handling reveal B category genes but, with moderate use of the speed system, its behavior in terms of safety is consistent with that of a glider in the A category. For this reason we decided to have the MIURA RS certified twice: firstly as an A category glider suitable for training, and secondly as a basic intermediate with its benefits of the extended speed range. This is possible by adding or unmounting the speed limiter, which pilots can do themselves in just a few seconds.
Who should fly the Miura RS?
Ambitious beginners wanting to use the performance and handling of an intermediate glider in their training, but who still want to keep the passive safety of the A category, will immediately feel at ease with the MIURA RS. The balanced damping and optimised RAST system will give you the confidence to climb higher than ever before, even in rough conditions. And on the subject of climbing, even its simple launch behaviour underlines its commitment to transport you with ease into the sky. This means the MIURA RS is ideal as your future-proof first paraglider. Pilots coming from a higher EN rating and those who don’t fly very often will also appreciate the glider’s accessible performance.
With 48 cells and its efficient speed system, it offers climb and glide performance that is outstanding in this class, and which will still put a smile on your face even after years. We have also refined its handling so that you will always be in full control of the situation even in turbulent thermals. And if conditions should ever become rougher than was expected, RAST will help you maintain pressure in the canopy.
The MIURA RS is also ideally suited for ppg-flying due to its reliable take-off characteristics and high stability. We offer optional EN/LTF certified hybrid risers so that you can go through the complete training from the training hill to licensed ppg-pilot with the Miura RS.
