AirDesign RISE (LTF/EN B)RISE is aimed at pilots who want to fly long cross-country flights on a wing with good performance, whilst also with security and passive safety to deal with those unexpected moments that may not be exactly as we would like them when ‘travelling’ by paraglider. RISE is perfectly suited for the progressing pilot who has experience with a basic glider and is looking for a wing with more performance and agility. It is also an ideal glider for those pilots stepping back from higher rated wings who want performance with greater passive safety. RISE is not aimed at beginner or novice pilots. At take-off you notice the very simple launch characteristics. With just a gentle pull on the A-risers RISE comes up above the head without a surge and with no tendency to overshoot. On windy launches, once the pilot has inflated the leading edge into a ‘wall’, the wing will rise up with just with the pilot weight and a small movement of the body. In the air, the handling is direct but without giving excessive feedback, making the RISE controllable and confidence inspiring to fly. RISEreacts predictably to pilot input building confidence in the wing very quickly.
