INFO

Around 20% lighter than our LTF/EN-B rebel PUNK, the RIOT is a fun-driven freedom-seeker of a wing. Under its vibrant chaos of wild pixel colours are some serious design features: Shark nose, Chord Cut Billow, Eyes Wide-Open safety and Progressive Stability make the RIOT a high-performing, informative glider with fun handling and great agility.

We’ve also extended the weight ranges of most sizes, so you can load up, head off and explore the skies on long adventures.

TECH

BABY A-RISER

We have added a ‘big ears’ A riser which is also on a ½ ratio with the rest of the A lines. This facilitates easy use of big ears while helping speed and stability while on bar. The speed system is light and simple without reflex really helping glide at speed.

BRUCE’S NOTES

I am very happy with the RIOT because I have managed to make it a real pilots’ glider. The lighter weight makes for lighter and even more direct handling and the pack size is also very low as we are one of the few brands not putting plastic reinforcing in the back part of the sail. Despite this the sail is super clean on top between the brakes, which is achieved by careful use of sail shape and straps, rather than heavy reinforcing.

Extended certified ranges are available on 4 sizes of RIOT and are XS=50-70, S=60-95, M=75-100, ML=88-113.

Extended weight ranges are there for insurance reasons. They enable pilots to fly above the ideal weight range and still fly insured. They should not be considered at all when choosing your correct glider size.
