1st flight in 5 months today. Its good to have the instructors exemption from no recriation flying rules set by the CAA during lockdown. Let's hope we can start teaching again soon.

Base 2 |intermediate paraglider | cross country | flybgd.com

We are really pleased to announce that BGD's new high EN-B cross-country wing, the Base 2, is certified in size M and available to order.

Bruce has just received the first production M which will be tested and confirmed before full production so the first production batch available will be shipping in 3 weeks all being well.

You’ve probably already seen the BASE 2 popping up on our social media, more info from BGD and pricing below:

The Base 2 replaces the Punk in BGD's range.

It’s a high performance and very confidence inspiring wing, with great BGD handling.

It has 57 cells and an aspect ratio of 5.7, with a new arc design and a multi-reefing brake system. This makes for precise control with small brake movements in the first part of the brake range, so it’s really responsive and fun to fly. The overall brake travel remains long, for safety.

It also has a brand new B/C steering system design. We’ve added a ‘speed riser’ to the system, which makes it really light and easy to use.

The Base 2 also has the double leading-edge, like the Cure 2, for a super solid leading edge especially at high speeds.

The three bright colourways are Aztec-inspired.

Here’s a link to BGD’s website for more information, including a table of sizes / weights / glider characteristics:

The prices in GBPs including VAT for the Base 2 are as follows:

BASE 2 - S & M - £3699
BASE 2 - M, ML & L - £3799

The C-steering system on the Base 2 is new. A new 'speed riser' is attached to the back of the speed system and the front of the C-steering handle. It balances the load on the C-steering handle and makes the system lighter, simpler, and easier to use, and gives more control over the glider.




Ice, Fire or Earth – what's your element? Which colour would you go for?

Taking off into the weekend!

Like its predecessor, the MESCAL6 is based on a compact wing shape with an aspect ratio of 4.8 and 38 cells, which is optimal for this class of glider and provides the best flying characteristics. For easy handling, the clearly arranged line setup and the ergonomic risers are color-coded to facilitate pre-launch preparations and inflation in all wind conditions.

For big ears, important in training, we have included markings on the split A-risers.

The #MESCAL6 comes equipped with all the latest technologies, placing you at the cutting-edge right from the start.
