There has much online discussion about RAST, Swing’s innovative Ram Air Section Technology paraglider design, as used on the EN-A Mito. Swing claim RAST is a huge leap forward in paraglider safety.
Swing have released the video above to explain in detail what RAST is, and how it works. They say the primary benefits are:
Firstly, 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.
