The Makalu 3 has been a very popular glider in the UP product range. Soon after its release almost 4 years ago it acquired the reputation of being a very reliable and safe glider, suitable for a large pilot segment. It takes time to improve on a legendary wing like this, but we're happy to announce that we're ready with the next incarnation in the Makalu family! We fully expect the new wing to become even more popular, not least because it preserves all of the positive characteristics of the "3" in an even more refined and sophisticated package.

Trango XC3 review in Cross Country Magazine
Hugh Miller, owner of Cross Country Magazine, is a pilot of discerning tastes. In issue 165 of his distinguished magazine he explains how his encounter with the UP Trango XC3 (EN C) went down. WARNING! Glowing review ahead! Click on the button to read the full review, and if you aren't impressed then you're even dead or you own one of the other paraglider manufacturing companies ;-)
Everyone at UP - yes we're all on the same page here ;-)
If you live in the Alps, and work in paragliding, then it is easy to begin to feel as if the entire community is just one big family - and we at UP are just one branch of it. We've recently gone and published a page full of family images for everyone to see - so now you can put faces to the names you've known all along, even if you don't live in the Alps.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
2015 has been one of the most exciting years in recent memory here at UP. Among other things the Trango XC3 has helped the world rediscover the UP wings from all categories, and we've had a very busy year. But as you'll already know we're not ones for sleeping on the laurels - 2016 promises to be even more action-packed, with no less than 4 new gliders in the pipeline (ohh the suspense) plus the distributor meeting in March coming up... We look forward to much more of everything in 2016, and all of it happening TOGETHER WITH YOU, our valued partners all over the World!
We hope you have enjoyed a glimpse of what we had on our minds for you this time around, till the next time please fly safely and HAVE FUN, whatever your game is!
