WINNING PERFORMANCE AND HANDLING
We designed the MERU for record breaking cross country flights, and top-level competitions.
An aspect ratio of 6.9 combined with a sophisticated two-liner construction make the MERU the perfect glider for expert pilots to get the most out of their flying day.
The MERU has the handling that UP is known for; direct, sharp and fun to fly.
The MERU’s agility and communication mean that the pilot will find the thermal faster, and climb more efficiently.
Complex internal structure combined with two-liner pitch control make the MERU very stable at speed, with awesome performance into a headwind.
While flying it you feel that every little piece of lift is converted into height, while the glider searches out more lift.
With optimized attachment points, 84 cells, and a super clean leading edge the MERU is a true thermal surfer.
2020 edition: This model is now also equipped with our popular snap-lock break handle as well as our C-steering handles.
