The Mirage RS is the next stage in the development of the Mirage, the glider which redefined speedflying when it was introduced. The Mirage RS is aimed at ambitious speedflying-pilots and has a focus on a further increased glide and dive range with increased safety and razor-sharp handling. With its large range, the Mirage RS adjusts to even steep contours, makes precise and more dynamic barrel rolls, has high energy reserves even at very low speeds and optimized control for longer and more accurate swoop landings.
The RAST technology developed by SWING increases safety during flight, on foot launch and noticably stabilises the canopy in turbulent conditions. The Mirage RS stands out with its precise and direct handling, greater speed and a touch more glide, but does not in any way sacrifice the very popular Mirage characteristics!
All of this makes the Mirage RS the ultimate All-Mountain Speedflyer, no matter how tough your runs and lines are.
Mirage RS 15
The Mirage RS 15 is the speedflying link to the APUS RS, our paraglider-miniwing. Size-optimised trimming means we have been able to retain the characteristics of the Mirage RS. With a flat wing area of 15.5m², this new size provides the ideal introduction into the world of speedflying. What’s more, it opens up many new opportunities to experienced miniwing pilots as well. The Mirage RS 15 is an all-rounder for almost every occasion, whether it’s for the descent in a hike & fly mission, with fun guaranteed (glider weight 2.8kg), soaring in strong winds or ground handling. The long trim travel offers a huge range with a high resistance to collapses, so the Mirage RS 15 can be flown intuitively along the contours of the land. With a surface area of 15.5 m², it offers a high level of safety and glide performance and greater flexibility in the choice of alpine launch sites. Unlike miniwings with paraglider profiles, the collapse-resistant speedflying profile and short lines make the Mirage RS a true carver, with dive and performance precisely adjusted for safe and uncomplicated mountain swooping. If you are flying at the coast or ground handling, with the Mirage RS 15, the fun takes over from where it endswith a conventional glider.
Mirage RS 15 – a fun wing you should never leave home without!
