High Performance Powered Racing Edition
The canopy has 63 cells and has an elliptical form with an aspect ratio of 5.83. The canopy has perfect internal pressure distribution and is very resistant to collapse. It retains sporty handling in all trim settings. The construction using diagonal ribs and a system of load-bearing tapes keep the canopy stable and clean for maximum efficiency through the air. Specially designed airfoils provide extraordinary glide ratio and stability. The smooth shape of the airfoil nose is maintained using Mylar reinforcement combined with plastic rods. Additionally the RFE system – C rods between the main ribs, and the matching mini-ribs along the trailing edge, effectively delivering much of the advantage of doubling the cell count without adding all that extra weight. The upper cascade is made from unsheathed lines. Thin top lines and smaller sizes of canopy help to achieve high speed. The benefit of this new technology is increased glide and lower fuel consumption.
The PitBull RX inflates very easily in all conditions even in a light, nil or cross wind. The wing offers sporty handling (even without 2D steering) in all trim settings. Optional adjustment of 2D steering in according to pilot’s preferences can make bank angle of turn even tighter. Good for fast slaloms. The brakes are light at the beginning and provide extraordinary maneuverability by 20% of brake travel. Dynamic maneuvers are easily possible. In the next phase of braking, the pressure increases progressively providing you with good sufficient feedback. The brakes are just as effective with open (fast) trimmers, without the need for a second set of steering toggles like most reflexed wings require.
The PitBull RX is equipped with special 5 point risers system and trimmers. For minimum sink rate and low fuel consumption the trimmers should be pulled down. The open position of trim decreases the angle of attack and increases cruising speed. Auto cleaning slots on wing tips help to keep the canopy clean. The 3 type stiffness brakes handles are equipped with swivels and additional thin loops to make control of the glider easier and less tiring during long flights. The glider is delivered with quickbag MacPack (optionaly with backpack Bronco), innersack, compression belt, T-shirt and set for repairs.
The PitBull RX is an outstanding paramotoring glider which is loaded with highest performance and maneuverability. It is fun to fly it.

The PitBull is manufactured using the paragliding industries well established lightweight material with excellent durability; Skytex 38, from Porcher Sport (NCV). For the less stressed areas of the sail we use Skytex 38 with E25A coating. For the supporting and diagonal ribs we use Skytex 40 Hard with “hard finish” coating E29A. This gives the advantage of a sail that is both lightweight and very durable.
