SCOUT Enduro – The Latest Game Changer from SCOUT Paramotors
When you think of the word “enduro,” most will think of tough motorcycles built for rugged terrain and high speed off road racing. Pulling from the success of the SCOUT Carbon model, the Enduro takes things to a whole new level of strength in design with the new Enduro model. We will be releasing more information in the near future on the new SCOUT Enduro Paramotor. Don’t worry, this model is not designed to replace the existing carbon fiber paramotor in any way. These two paramotors will fill totally different roles.

The Aerial Vehicle of Choice – Dude I Want That!
It’s always fun when our sport gets “maintstream coverage.” Recently DudeIWantThat.com found our SCOUT paramotor online and shared one of our favorite films from Javi Malaguita as well. “…would paramotoring not be a fantastic, traffic-and-other-human-being-free form of transportation? I could literally fly to work. Cars, stoplights, construction, bodies of water: Hasta la vista, Gilipollas!” They later went on to add: “To ensure people who have no business using a SCOUT do not buy one, one of Jeff Bezos’ drones will trail all paramotor deliveries to take a photograph of required licensing. Those who cannot produce the proper documents will be punished either …
