Take your XC adventures off the beaten track

The R-light 3 is our lightweight version of the legendary Rook model series. Built just like the Rook 3 but using light materials and technology, it is a wing that is made for aerial adventure. It is the perfect tool for combining high-level XC paragliding with serious hiking – in the air, this wing will go everywhere a normal Rook 3 goes, and on the ground, it will go at least one place where the standard Rook doesn’t go – into a small backpack!

Because our emphasis with this wing is a full-on mountain and XC flying, we decided to equip it with standard risers. With this little touch, we have ensured that the wing will feel every bit like a standard Rook 3, except it may be even easier to launch due to the lower canopy weight, and it will be notably easier on your back while packed.

  • Conclusion:

    Like the normal version, the R-Light S packs small and offers the best performance in climb and glide for the B category. The top speed is very good for the category. Ears are stable on this light S size and reopen smoothly without pilot control.  It needs a sensible pilot to appreciate its thermal behavior.  I found that flying it at max load is the optimum load to get it efficiently into the airmass. My test describes accurately only the ’S’ size flown at 85 all up. I really had a very nice time test flying it!
