If you are wanting to turn the dream of flying into a reality, then the MITO is the ideal glider for you. Its launch behaviour is uncomplicated and harmonious, which ensures that novices will make rapid progress and gives advanced pilots peace of mind in difficult areas or in challenging launch conditions.

The MITO is the result of a combination of innovative ideas, advanced technologies and sound development work, based on decades of experience in paraglider development. Our goal: to develop a paraglider on which beginners and occasional flyers can rely 100% and which offers a good deal of flying enjoyment without overextending the pilot.

Description

RAST – Ram Air Section Technology

RAST divides the canopy crossways to the flight direction into different (pressure) sections and regulates the airflow in the wing through defined openings. During the launch procedure, the flow of air is thus slowed, so that the front third of the profile takes shape much more quickly than the back section. Conversely, the air cannot escape as quickly from the rear section of the wing if there is a collapse.

With RAST, pilots benefits:

  • Firstly from particularly straightforward and even launch behaviour and the glider has no tendency to overshoot or to launch the pilot unintentionally. The MITO “positions” itself properly above the pilot.
  • Secondly, the MITO remains calm in turbulent conditions. And should there ever be a collapse, the escape of air from the back section is slowed which effectively prevents major collapses.

The operation of RAST was confirmed in numerous test flights and complex testing in cooperation with flying schools.

Full of innovations SWING presents with MITO for the first time the brand-new ram air section technology (RAST) simply called „the wall“. This makes MITO different from all currently existing paraglider models on the market.

  • double 3D-shaping at the leading and at the trailing edge

 

3D-shaping in the leading edge for targeted tension control is now standard practice in paraglider design. However, corresponsing 3D-shaping at the trailing edge in combination with the mini-ribs is needed to achieve a much better result.

Following the NYOS (high-end EN B) now also with the MITO the ballooning at the trailing edge is reduced by a combination of 3D-shaping and mini ribs. For increasing glide performance up to now the last 20% of chord of wing has been flattened using mini ribs only. But the system of a lot of ribs give the perfect chance for an additional 3D shaping.

For the MITO this change at the trailing edge to mini ribs with internal seams plus 3D-shaping results in a higher trim speed of plus 1.5 km/h and a clearly higher resistence against deep stall.

 

  • shark nose profile changing fluently into low drag profile at the stabilos
  • mini ribs with internal seams and 3D-shaping. For the first time the MITO features mini ribs with internal seams at the trailing edge. Withdrawn seams e.g. by getting stuck in take-off on the ground, are a thing of the past.
  • hybrid 3-liner guarantees easy and fast preparing for take-off
