RAMA Flex  

The new Reflex paraglider
made by Air Design
 


The Air Design commitment to combine performance with comfort and manageability was key during the design of the RAMA Flex PPG wing.


The RAMA Flex delivers the performance to satisfy progressing skill levels, whilst keeping the inherent stability required for beginner and intermediate pilots.


It is remarkably easy to forward and reverse launch in nil wind conditions; perform in flight with exceptionally responsive toggle and wing tip steering, and land with the buoyancy and smoothness that you would expect from a performance paraglider wing. 


This wing is designed for the active beginner pilot who has goals to continue to expand their flying experiences. The RAMA Flex bridges the separation between a true beginner wing and an intermediate performance wing. 



For only an additional $700.00, have your RAMAA Flex butterfly wing!


 

 

As the name suggests the RAMA Flex uses a semi reflex platform. 

It inflates progressively without tendency to surge in stronger wind or in aggressive trike launches.

In flight, the wing is responsive to brake input but without the hypersensitivity found in many performance gliders.  The wing tip steering allows the pilot to make dynamic and efficient turns. 



 


This paraglider is designed with attention to detail: Streamlined risers and the wing tip steering toggle, neatly tucked out of the way. 

The neoprene covering on the adjustable brake handles adds a level of comfort and fit for pilots having to manage flying with gloves and throttle in hand. The dual pulley system allows for low and high attachment points. 

With trim tabs released the glider transitions to a semi reflex profile which increases speed and wing pressurization as the wing's center of gravity shifts forward.  This shift makes the glider inherently more stable. 

Minimized roll and pitch tendencies during flight allow the pilot to enjoy a calm, controlled flight even in rougher weather conditions. 

LTF/EN rating: tested to LTF 926, also certified by DGAC (link)
