The Mito 2 RS is Swing’s new beginner wing for schools. It’s a bit lighter than its predecessor at 3.9kg to 5.2kg across the sizes, and has Swing’s Rast system.
The glider has a flat aspect ratio of 4.85 and 34 cells. Swing say it’s really easy to launch, with “uncomplicated and harmonious” launching behaviour and no overshoot tendency. The leading-edge supports are Nitinol rods, an “indestructible memory material” that mean the glider will retain these launch characteristics for a long time.
Everything is designed for ease of use, from the webbing risers that are coloured and marked L and R at the clip-in points, to the brake handles that are coloured to match the risers. It’s available in five sizes that cater for all-up weights from 55kg to 125kg.
