Swing MITO 2 RS Paraglider
Swing MITO 2 RS Paraglider
Fulfil your dream and learn to fly with our patented RAST system, proven thousands of times, for rapid learning success.
With the MITO 2 RS, our “flight instructor’s favourite” is entering its 2nd generation.
The basic concept of its successful predecessor has been retained and brought up to the latest state of the art. Among other things, you benefit from a significantly reduced canopy weight without compromising durability.
Like its predecessor, the MITO 2 RS inspires with its uncomplicated and harmonious launch behaviour. To ensure that this remains so even after many packing cycles, we have relied on the indestructible memory material Nitinol as profile reinforcement at the leading edge. Due to the smooth and fine handling, the MITO 2 RS is a real guarantee for fun even long after the training.
- Fulfill your dream of flying with the Mito 2 RS!
- Easy to launch without overshooting
- RAST for more control and comfort
- Permanently form-stable leading edge due to Nitinol
- suitable for trainingeasysafe
Who should fly the MITO 2 RS?
Student pilots, occasional pilots and pleasure pilots
RAST – for maximum control
On paragliders with RAST the canopy is divided into different internal pressurised sections by one or more fabric panels, some with valves running crossways to the direction of flight. This makes it possible to influence the air flows within the canopy.
In the MITO 2 RS, RAST has been optimized for the following characteristics:
- Very easy and steady wind-up behavior with no tendency to overshoot and no tendency to lever out. The MITO 2 RS literally “parks” above the pilot
- High canopy stiffness with reduced internal volume
- Maximum flight stability and control even for less experienced pilots in turbulent air
Nitinol Wires – for maximum profile stability with minimum weight
Nitinol is a high-strength, temperature- and corrosion-resistant shape memory alloy. The name Nitinol is an acronym for Nickel Titanium Naval Ordnance Laboratory.This material is well-known in medical technology, and for a long time Swing has been using it as leading edge reinforcement in paraglider design, one of the first paraglider manufacturers to do so.
In the MITO 2 RS, the Nitinol reinforcements are inserted into nylon tubes. This has made it possible to increase the cross-section – and thus the contact area for the topsail material – without having to sacrifice the positive benefits (resistance to deformation, length and dimensional stability) of the memory material. The leading edge is therefore less sensitive to premature abrasion and keeps its shape over the long term.
Miniribs – for a homogeneous trailing edge
Ballooning on the trailing edge has a considerable influence on a paraglider’s control pressure and handling. That’s why, with the MITO 2 RS, ballooning in this area was reduced to a minimum using 3D shaping, in addition to the tried and tested mini ribs. The trick here is that the mini ribs have internal stitching on the top surface so that none of the threads can get caught up on the ground and pulled out, even when launching in difficult terrain.
With RAST, the air equalisation flows within the paraglider canopy can be regulated through defined openings. This applies both when filling,(during take-off) and when emptying. In the case of pressure loss, e.g. caused by canopy collapse in turbulent air, the relative internal pressure of the CORE section increases, while the BUFFER section absorbs the introduced energy by deformation. Furthermore, RAST can be used as an additional support to the leading and trailing edge, which has a positive effect on flight comfort. As RAST connects the ribs over the entire profile height, the construction has a stiffening effect and reinforcements and/or stiffening elements can be saved or even completely replaced by this special construction method.
3D-shaping – for optimised aerodynamics
The targeted control of tension by 3D shaping at the leading edge of the upper sail has become standard in paraglider construction. This is in order to make the airflow-relevant areas as crease-free as possible. Depending on the model, 3D shaping is either single or double in its construction.
We have supplemented the standard shaping with another 3D shaping at the leading edge to optimise the aerodynamic effect of the miniribs.
Simple line concept – for good sortability
To ensure ease of organisation of the lines and to keep the riser as clear as possible, all line galleries from the sail are combined on only three riser levels.
An intelligent line mix of state-of-the-art materials guarantees durability and length stability with minimal drag.
Colored Riser Connections – for minimized risk of mistake
To avoid mistakes when attaching the harness, the attachment loops are colour-coded. This means you can see at a glance whether the risers are correctly attached to the harness.
