If you are wanting to turn the dream of flying into a reality, then the MITO is the ideal glider for you. Its launch behavior is uncomplicated and harmonious, which ensures that novices will make rapid progress and gives advanced pilots peace of mind in difficult areas or in challenging launch conditions.

And once you are airborne, the MITO will win you over with its balanced handling which, combined with excellent climb rate, guarantees unique flying experiences which make our sport so special.


  The MITO is the result of a combination of innovative ideas, advanced technologies and sound development work, based on decades of experience in paraglider development. Our goal: to develop a paraglider on which beginners and occasional flyers can rely 100% and which offers a good deal of flying enjoyment without overextending the pilot.

To quote Otto Lilienthal, a German pioneer of aviation:

“To design a flying machine is nothing. To build one is something. But to fly is everything”.


The MITO’s distinctive design feature is the patent-pending Ram Air Section Technology (RAST). The MITO is the first glider to use this completely new design characteristic, distinguishing it from all other paragliders currently available on the market.

RAST – Ram Air Section Technology

RAST divides the canopy crossways to the flight direction into different (pressure) sections and regulates the airflow in the wing through defined openings. During the launch procedure, the flow of air is thus slowed, so that the front third of the profile takes shape much more quickly than the back section. Conversely, the air cannot escape as quickly from the rear section of the wing if there is a collapse.

With RAST, pilots benefits:

  • Firstly from particularly straightforward and even launch behavior 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.

The operation of RAST was confirmed in numerous test flights and complex testing in cooperation with flying schools.

Full of innovations SWING presents with MITO for the first time the brand-new ram air section technology (RAST) simply called „the wall“. This makes MITO different from all currently existing paraglider models on the market.
