UP Kibo (EN-B)

Product Description

With the new UP Kibo (EN B), UP puts a whole new product branch on the UP family tree

The ideal mid-range EN B glider, and a perfect all-rounder at heart, the UP Kibo is built to progress on – it is the perfect mix between a very safe and forgiving beginner’s wing and a performance-and-XC paraglider, meaning it will teach its pilot exactly how performance gliders fly, but it will look after them while doing so. It sits comfortably between the new Makalu 4 and the Summit XC3 in the UP model range.
