GIN Gliders Bolero 6
Ever since the first version in 1999, the Bolero has provided a solid foundation for thousands of pilots to develop their skills – from the first steps on the training slopes to soaring effortlessly among the clouds.
Start your flying career the right way
The Bolero 6 is intended as a first paraglider, suitable for school use but also for regular pilots who want to fly stress free and relaxed. The glider gives just the right amount of feedback to enable pilots to develop instinctive flying skills in a safe, comfortable and progressive manner.
2nd generation EPT for improved take-off behaviour
The Bolero 6 features the second iteration of EPT (Equalized Pressure Technology), our numerical method of calculating the best possible airfoil parameters for any given profile. Introduced in the Bolero 5, EPT brought many beginner friendly improvements, such as a long and progressive brake range and a low stall speed. The Bolero 6 features further improvements such as improved take-off behavior, stability and handling.
The Bolero 6 has 3 risers and 3 main lines span wise per side. The simple riser and reduction in line consumption makes it easier to identify and sort out lines on the ground.
A well-balanced glider
The handling of the Bolero 6 strikes the balance needed to optimally develop a pilot’s flying instincts. The brakes are precise yet forgiving. The turn is responsive and playful, but always co-ordinated and comfortable. The wing gives clean and intelligible feedback which makes it easy to learn about the air, whilst the reduced mini-oscillations ensure that pilots make comfortable progress towards flying in more active air. All this means simply more fun!
