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.

Controlling the MERU with the B-Risers is intuitive, and effective, allowing the pilot to keep the speed-bar engaged with confidence, arriving at the next thermal higher and faster. 

The speed-bar pressure is light allowing for less fatigue, and longer flying days.

Durable, lightweight materials combined with an intricate design make the MERU our most sophisticated glider. 

We have been designing and revising our two-liner prototypes for years, patiently working to produce the best possible XC/competition glider, its finally here, the MERU.
