AirDesign Ride 3 Tandem


AirDesign Ride 3 Tandem


The Ride 3 is your ideal tandem wing.
Flies excellently in both the lower and upper weight range and can be flown uncompromisingly – so you have the perfect weight range. The Ride 3 M has the largest practical weight range ever (115-215 kg).

SKU: 923 Category:

The M size is now the standard size for most pilots.

  • If you are a heavier pilot (95kg +) or you fly the wing steadily at the upper payload area, you can consider size L.
  • Anyone who often flies tandem knows that: strong brake pressure throughout the day makes you heavy arms and shoulders. Especially here you will be thrilled, as we have reduced the brake pressure to comfortably allow long and relaxed or really many flights.
  • Finally: performance. For some, this is not a must, but the Ride 3 has brought it to the next level in terms of performance. The Ride 3 can easily compete with the current high-end EN-B solo wings.

The Ride..

The RIDE is already known for its excellent starting characteristics! These could be improved again. The Ride 3 has the best starting characteristics of all time. Easy filling of the cap without overriding the tendency. As soon as the glider is over your head, the new HLP (High-Lift-Profile) creates a constant buoyancy and you lift off with the glider immediately elegantly – even with high payload.
Brilliant handling and agility are not usually expected from a tandem, but the Ride 3 also offers that. If you want to give your passengers a bit of adrenaline – the Ride 3 is a wingover machine. Here you really experience a new level of fun and agility for a tandem.

We use a long-lasting and long-proven material mix, but we have achieved a lower screen weight through new design technologies and redesigned sizes made possible by the HLP concept.
Stability is another outstanding feature of the Ride 3. Flying is comfortable and easy. Turbulences are well damped, making the flight pleasant for the passengers.

We have developed a very simple earmuff system – no clamps, rollers or similar complicated solutions. Simply hooking the outer split-A straps to the red ball of the rocker ensures a stable and uncomplicated loss of height.
Landings have never been so effortless. The Ride 3 has incredibly good flare characteristics that allow you to land with the same comfort you would expect from a solo.
