Swing announce Arcus RS ‘low B’ paraglider

Swing’s new low-EN-B Arcus RS is now certified in the first three of five sizes.

The RS signifies the the wing sports Swing’s RAST (Ram Air Section Technology) system. An area at the front of the canopy is partitioned off, and there are valves between the two sections. Swing say it means the leading edge always inflates first, and the wing rises slowly and does not tend to overfly. It is also more stable in turbulence.

The Arcus RS has triple 3D-shaping on the top surface and 3D-shaping on the bottom surface, with trailing edge mini-ribs and “an elaborate design of internal ribs and cross-ports”.

It will be made in five sizes, from XS to XL, which will suit all-up weights from 55-130kg. Currently the S (70-95kg), M (85-105kg) and L (95-115kg) are certified. It is available in four colour choices.
