BGD PUNK EN B

The EN/LTF B Punk has rocked onto the paragliding scene. It’s rebellious, fun and energetic, a high-B with a flat aspect-ratio of 5.42, excellent performance, high top speed and lively handling. All this with the reassuring safety of B-category certification.

The Punk has stacks of performance and cross-country potential for distance-hungry pilots, and the throwability and fun factor to please wagga-punks.

Bruce says: “There is a kind of inner harmony with the Punk that makes it react better to inputs. I feel an extra level of control over the glider”.

It’s available in five sizes for all-up weights from 50kg to 125kg, and three colour schemes. Get out there and play!

Target
Its high level of passive safety and excellent performance make it the ideal rebel partner for a wide range of pilots.

We are all punks. Our subculture has shocked the established order and constraints of society. We break the rules of nature, disregard the norms, and have a hell of a time doing it.

The High-B PUNK was designed to sink deep into that rebellious part of your brain and enlighten you of reality. Are you a pilot that wants to know the truth? The punk will expose it.

Description
We are on a mission to put taste, control, and attitude back into gliders. The PUNK is a modern day rebellion towards bland tasteless paragliders. This new age wing is an explosion of feel, controllability, and fun. It is a matter of respect. The punk will speak the cold hard truth about the conditions giving you eyes wide-open safety and performance. End propaganda. Become enlightened. Make your own choices. Fly the un-censored Punk.

Bruce’s notes
Controllable performance is what I call it. In the PUNK, I have added an extra level of control. Using our trademark “Bruce Goldsmith Handling” and “power steering” there is a kind of inner harmony in the glider that reacts better to the pilots’ inputs.

“When I step off the launch with the PUNK overhead I feel more comfortable and no longer intimidated. The speed and performance is easier to control and understand.”

The Punk passes the certification tests very easily and even if you fly over weight the safety of the glider is not effected. Because of this we have been able to use extended weight ranges for the Punk certification, which means that even if you fly the glider over the top of the ideal weight range, you are still flying within certification.

Extended certified ranges are available on 4 sizes of Punk and are XS=50-70, S=60-95, M=75-105, ML=88-113.
