Airdesign presents its new tandem paraglider aimed at satisfying the growing demand of light and ultra-light gliders required for the practice of the Hike & Fly modality. The UFO-Bi is a compact and lightweight wing, easy to pack and carry, that offers a quick and safe tandem descent from mountain peaks.

With a final weight of only 2.83 kg, this paraglider has an aspect ratio of 4.97 points, 27 cells and can transport weights ranging from 130 to 190 kg.
