The new AGERA RS sees the introduction of the first EN-C glider to feature RAST!

We have combined RAST with an uncompromising performance profile. Through the synergies this produces, the AGERA RS is redefining the sport class and blurring the boundaries with the performance class.

Flight behaviour:

The AGERA RS is a high-performance wing that behaves like a 2-line glider.

It can be steered delicately and extremely precisely, meaning it is incredibly stable and can be controlled reliably even in strong turbulence. The communicative flight behaviour of the AGERA RS enables the pilot to “read the air” and to recognise and use even small up-currents.

The AGERA RS is completely in its element in strong conditions and conveys a sheer high performance feel:

Gliding through turbulence with razor-sharp precision at half or full throttle, combined with perfect pitch control through the C-Bridge, means cross-country freaks have everything they could ever want. Reaching the next thermal, the AGERA RS enters it purposefully, then playfully spirals up to cloudbase. At the same time it assists the pilot at all times with clear and direct feedback.

The weight ranges are very precise and close, allowing the AGERA RS to develop its full potential, and at the same time they cover the range of optimal wing-loading.

Target group:

The AGERA RS is a high-end sport class wing, which also compares well with higher-rated gliders. With its huge potential in terms of performance and speed, it is intended primarily for the following groups of pilot:

  • ambitious paraglider pilots, along with cross-country and competition pilots, who fly actively and are able to detect canopy stability problems, and prevent them at the outset or minimise their repercussions. The pilot must be able to safely master all common descent methods.

  • Pilots who are seriously preparing themselves for the switch to a CCC or EN-D competition glider.


If you only ever used the AGERA RS for leisurely thermalling at your local site, it would be much the same as never using a sports car outside restricted speed zones …

Technical highlights:

  • RAST for more stability and a greater range of usable performance

  • uncompromising performance profile for high speeds and excellent properties in thermal flying

  • Nitinol rods for a razor-sharp leading edge with maximum aerodynamic quality

  • same load distribution as with 2-line technology. 90% of the load is on the A- and B-lines. The C-lines have a supporting function and operate only when using the brakes or with canopy stability problems. This has made it possible to transfer the 2-line feeling into the sport class

  • C-Bridge for efficient pitch control and steering through the rear risers

  • exclusive high-tech fabric, which is very light and hard-wearing

  • competition line system for minimised resistance

  • high trim speed

  • intelligent and durable lightweight construction

Piloten Feedbacks

 

Ich konnte den AGERA RS am Sonntag bei der Fassa Sky Expo ausgiebig testen und bin begeistert! Er geht richtig gut vorwärts, so konnte ich auch mit den EN-D Schirmen gut mitfliegen. Südlich vom Latemar konnte ich sogar die Führung übernehmen.

Im DHV-XC hab ich mich für diese Saison gleich mit dem AGERA RS angemeldet!

The words to describe my first experience are 'curious and excited'... I generally only add 1 new item to my flying however in this occasion I also flew the connect 3 for the first time but normally I'm in the connect 2, which may not count as too much new equipment as both have seaboards and are quite similar.
The site was my regular inland site and the time was after the peak thermic period. The air was boyant and the lift was abundant near the ridge and some small climbs away from the hill. I flew without a Vario sound and concentrated on feeling the air through the harness.

The glider gave more feedback than my Nyos RS as well as all of the other EN C glider I have flown in the last 15 years which was helpful in searching for the light lift. I managed to climb faster than my friends on the day and push out from the ridge to new areas and loose very little height. On a few occasions I played with the speed bar and felt the glider became more solid. The initial height loss on application was coupled with high speed, however the glider seemed to flatten out and glider forever to headwind areas I had not flown to before.
I top landed and gave the glider to a friend that zoomed around the sky and I was unable to catch him to take a picture of the top surface. I can't wait to try the glider again! Excited and curious about how it goes in stronger lift.
