Airdesign Ride 3


The Airdesign Ride 3 is a EN B tandem that flies extremely well to the lower range and certified from 115 to 215 kg in M size, the ideal weight range!

For pilots of more than 90kg or always flying to the maximum weight range, size L (135-230kg) is recommended.

It is undoubtedly one of the most expected 2019 news, a robust and durable tandem but dynamic and fun, one of the ideal candidates for professional use without sacrificing the best features.

Strengths of the new Airdesign Ride 3

  • Perfect for lighter passengers – allowing you to maintain speed, performance and agility
  • Perfect usability at top weight loading
  • A wider usable weight range than ever conceived before
  • Size M: It’s an M size tandem. It’s not a small or large wing; therefore it sits in between the conventional sizing concept and is perfect for most tandem pilots (consider the L size if you are >95kg or are consistently loading your wing towards the higher end).
  • Size L: This sizing allows you to support a higher take-off weight, without compromising speed or performance characteristics when loading at the bottom end.
  • Compact sizing also results in better handling and a wider speed range, offering a greater level of canopy stability and reduced overall glider weight makes the new Airdesign Ride 3 one of the best options.
  • Reduced issues associated with lack of penetration in strong headwind conditions
  • The new HLP profile provides excellent climbing characteristics as well as easy inflation and lift-off.


  • High Lift Profile (HLP): Provides greater lift compared to standard profiles. Therefore, it’s possible to load more weight on a compact sized glider and still have the feeling of lift that you‘d normally expect from a larger wing; giving perfect speed throughout the weight-range, incredible lift and awesome handling, one of the best features of the new Airdesign Ride 3.
  • Compact sizing: Ensures perfect flying characteristics on low loadings. Maintains handling agility and stability.
  • Revised trimmer system: Extremely effective trimmer range enables excellent top speed – accelerating up to +11kmh when fully opened, while also ensuring that the wing is stable and handles perfectly, a good point for this EN B tandem.
  • Big-ears system: Split A-risers to support big ear line retention via the newly developed spreader ball keeper system. (SKS)
  • Reduced overall weight due to compact sizing and optimized inner construction utilising a durable time-proven material mix, ideal for commercial use.
