Do you feel the need for speed on the slope?! Well the 72" Ridge Runner could be just what you need.
Designed in the early 1970's for slope aerobatic and pylon race events, the Ridge Runner placed in the finals of the 1973 and 1974 RCM Trophy Races, and it was the most popular slope soarer entry.
The Ridge Runner provides crisp control authority, and aerobatic capabilities to keep a pattern flyer interested.
