The Samurai is our new high-end performance glider, designed for experienced motor pilots searching for a balanced wing that carves the air with precision and speed…and unlimited potential for excitement and fun! Thanks to low fuel consumption over the whole speed range it has ideal synergy for classic and slalom competitions.
The Samurai definitely targets talented pilots who have a minimum of 150 hours in the air on advanced powered gliders. The Samurai is not suitable for beginners or even intermediate pilots.
This newly developed airfoil with shark-nose leading edge formation, provides perfect internal pressure distribution through a wide range of ‘angles of attack’, and is very resistant to collapse. The leading edge incorporates C rod technology on the ribs, combined with RFE system on the panels (additional synthetic rod reinforcement in center of panel). This technology eliminates leading edge deformations at high speeds, while providing extra performance and overall stability in demanding conditions. The benefits of this new technology are increased glide with lower fuel consumption.
Inflation with the Samurai is remarkably easy in all conditions, even in a nil or light, cross-wind.
With a name like the Samurai, this glider does not disappoint. It delivers sporty and precise handling through the entire range of trim settings with great resistance to collapse at higher speeds. The Samurai is a carving machine!
The riser system provides excellent control in accelerated flight. According to pilot preference, the risers can be set by utilizing the classic speed system with trimmers, or with PK system (also known as, Power Attack System). On the Samurai, the PK system is combined with the speed system and trimmer setting, offering a wide range of speeds while utilizing standard speedbar travel. The Samurai risers are cleverly designed, incorporating our popular and unique wing tip steering handles. Like on the Charger and Colorado the WTST toggles are perfectly placed, close to the main carabiners, and are held in position with magnets and snap buttons.
The Samurai is a hybrid 4-5-liner design. This allows for full adjustability of the profile geometry via trims and speed system.
The main rigging lines are sheathed, while the upper gallery lines are unsheathed for less drag. The Samurai comes standardly equipped with 2D steering, which allows the pilot to ‘fine tune’ the control of the wingtip and the center of the trailing edge. The experienced pilot is able to adjust the progression of pulling the trailing edge to suit his style and preference.
Auto cleaning slots on wing tips help to keep the canopy clean. Modified semi-stiff brakes toggles are equipped with swivels and are newly equipped with two magnet settings (a magnet on each side for greater ease of use).
The glider comes standard with a quick bag/stuff sack (or optionally with Bronco backpack), inner sack, compression belt, T-shirt and repair kit.
The Samurai is an outstanding paramotoring glider geared towards talented pilots looking for the highest performance and ‘cutting edge’ maneuverability. The Samurai definitely lives up to its name. You will not be disappointed with fun you’ll experience flying this exciting new wing!

Yes, the Samurai wing is my new “go to” favorite wing for everyday flying. It is a perfect mix of efficiency, easy handling, sporty playfulness, and a great speed range for cross country. It does it ALL very well. I probably could have this wing in both the size 20m and 22m depending on where I’m launching (site elevation) and what handling type / sport flying is desired for each flight.Read More
