AirDesign RONIN


Light and fast! Starting from 1 kg and 5L packed, the RONIN is our ultimate single surface to run and fly. And run. And fly. Nothing can stop you


RONIN – #bladerunnin

In feudal Japan (1185-1868), a rōnin (Japanese: 浪人, ‘drifter’ or ‘wanderer’, lit. ’a person of the waves’) was a samurai who had no lord or master.

No gods, no masters!

AirDesign RONIN

The RONIN was a wandering samurai who had no lord or master. Our glider follows the same path. It is intended for pilots looking for a single surface but with a more radical flying style. Combining the lowest weight and packing volume with the highest durability, the RONIN is made for running and flying – boundless, fast, with no order or restrictions: free in what you do! Break your own rules!

Compared to The New UFO, the RONIN offers reduced weight & packing by decreasing lines, ribs and nose section but also by using the double-coated Dominico DOKDO 10D fabric. The glider is smaller and it flies at higher load, making it faster and more dynamic. While the RONIN has no speed system thanks to its built-in high speed, the glide and the flair have been improved in comparison to the UFO. The RONIN is ideal for ambitious pilots, trail running, practicing extreme mountaineering and searching for the most remote challenges in the world.


Construction & Features

  • Double coated Dominico DOKDO 10D, doubled seams and etching tape on edges: robustness is the key.
  • The lines are unsheathed Aramid 8001 Magix Pro Dry, hydrophobic and color-coded. Solidity has never been so easy to untangle.
  • The use of Nitinol rods not only saves weight and increases robustness, it also allows a super compact folding… To always slip it into your rucksack.
  • Leading edge and trailing edge are with mylar-border bands for structural strength. As well, this ensures the wing’s flying behavior.
  • On the leading edge, ground attachment loops can be used to prevent the paraglider from slipping on a steep and/or slippery slope (snow).
  • Inspired by aerodynamics design in cycling, the RONIN introduced a new profile named Kammtail

Since the certification of the first UFO in 2015, Stephan has developed a certain expertise to make single surface gliders as light as possible without compromising their solidity nor the durability. Making the lightest single surface is one thing but we want our pilots to feel confident with their gear, in terms of behavior, performance and robustness. Especially in a wild environment and sketchy take-offs. The RONIN will be your best companion in all your adventures, from the simple trail-and-fly to the epic first ascent.

El Pes Total en Vol es considera com la massa de vol (incloent pilot, parapent, arnès, reserva, material…)
EN 926-2 = prova de vol
EN 926-1 = prova de càrrega i xoc
El RONIN té un rang de pes estàndard certificat (EN 926-2, per exemple EN-B) i un rang de pes estès que està cobert per la EN 926-1 (prova de càrrega). En el primer, el parapent vola en estil intermedi i ja és força ràpid. En aquest últim, el parapent està més carregat i, per tant, la velocitat és molt superior, per tant requereix bones habilitats per a l’enlairament i l’aterratge.

AirDesign XXSWe work hard on every model to be able to maintain the behavior of the glider in terms of flying, and also outside the flight envelope, for all the certified weights, starting by the smallest ones. The certification of most of our wings starts at 50 kg because we chose to announce only what we have actually tested. And above all, because we make sure that the glider is efficient, secure and fun at this load and this is as important as the certification itself! Our aim is to have light pilots find the same pleasure to fly as heavier ones.
