Three, two, one, booster ignition and we have lift-off for the LUNA 2, our out of this world PPG wing with the ultimate mission, to widen the possibilities of airborne exploration for experienced pilots. This hi-tech versatile craft will safely carry pilots to discover new horizons and then softly bring them back to the surface!
The LUNA 2 is made for powered paragliding, and offers the perfect blend of comfort, performance and speed creating the ideal choice for intermediate pilots up to competition racers. Designed from the record breaking LUNA the LUNA 2 is even better with a new strong shark nose, a re-optimized reflex profile, a new elliptical arc, a new riser speed system, extra-terrestrial colour schemes, trademark CCB 3D panel shaping, and of course exceptional BGD handling. The brand new risers feature dedicated tip-steering handles, low and high hang-point loops, trimmers and speed bar. With all these new features the LUNA 2 is ready to take on any challenge you dream up!
With the LUNA 2 we have focused on an easy inflation, fun manoeuvrability, stability, and top speed – all the things you need for paramotoring ventures. Cord Cut Billow (CCB) along the LUNA 2’s leading edge helps keep the reflex profile smooth and perfect, and the reflex makes for excellent stability at all speeds.
An ultra aggressive shark nose optimises stability at all speeds. Not all sharks are created equal and BGD’s shark noses are very aggressive, maximizing the effects of the technology.
We have incorporated a solid reflex section into the LUNA 2 profile to help improve stability at higher speeds.
We have added dedicated magnetically fastened tip steering handles into the LUNA 2 to make high-speed manoeuvres easy and safe.
Risers with both low and high hang points provide maximum versatility to fly with a harness or trike in the style that suits you.
With a simple around-and-through, you can easily replace those squeaky old brake pulleys or switch them for rings.
We have found 18.5mm to be the perfect amount of speed bar for the LUNA 2, allowing us to achieve maximum speed range while keeping well within the stability limits.
The LUNA 2 is fitted with trimmers, with a range of 8.5cm.
Carefully arched diagonals in the internal structure of the LUNA 2 distribute tension more evenly across the wing, reducing wrinkles and increasing performance.
The LUNA 2 is capable of an excellent top speed, thanks to its high speed profile.
The LUNA 2 has a flattening ration of 11.5% meaning the arc is high and elliptical. This gives great handling, and is also stable under power.
Over the years we have perfected our system of optimising the line layout of our wings. We use numerous equations, software, and the plain old guess-and-check method to build our line layout. The result is simple: fewer lines making stronger, faster gliders.
The LUNA 2 is constructed with a mix of lightweight but robust, proven, materials.
