Bruce Goldsmith Design is a specialist manufacturer of high quality paragliding equipment.
We fly, research and develop in the south of France.
Gourdon produces active-air test conditions year-round, giving us a significant advantage over other manufacturers.
Bruce Goldsmith has been designing paragliders and equipment since 1991, and has produced some of the world’s most loved and successful wings – including two world championship winning designs.
He is assisted by test pilot Ant Green, who is also our film producer.
Arna Goldsmith manages Sales and Marketing and our distribution is located in Wolfsberg, Austria with Christoph Scheer at the helm who is also the financial guru.
Our mission is to build gliders with personality: exceptional wings with the refined handling and innovative qualities that Bruce Goldsmith has become renowned for.
We love the feeling of being connected to the air through your wing, and our wings are designed with that in mind.
Our goal is to make wings pilots love to fly.
