Objeto

Once upon a time in a land far, far away (1989 on the Isle of Wight, UK), a younger Bruce Goldsmith toiled night and day, cramming all his ideas into the Black Magic. This paraglider was to fulfill his dreams and take him into the history books. Now, with the Epic, fellow pilots can follow on his flight path and embark on their own epic journey. If the passion for flight burns inside you, the Epic will set you free with, literally, flying colours. The Epic is ideal for pilots about to leave their house thermal for the first time, and a fun all-rounder for seasoned pilots.

Descripción

Designed to satisfy your uncontrollable urge for flying, the Epic is an intuitive, safe and graphically appealing paraglider. Bruce has packed lots of high-tech design solutions into the Epic so you can enjoy your journey at your own pace. Designed for peace of mind no matter what you meet on your journey, she will reassure while you slay that flaming dragon thermal, and see you safely past the snaking valley breeze. A shark nose, mini-ribs, light and efficient speed bar, elliptical tips and a safe but sharp brake range work together for optimal safety, handling, and performance. The Epic will give you the confidence to make your journey over the highest mountains, across the deepest valleys and to the ends of the earth and back.

Notas del diseñador

I know how privileged I am to have found such an extraordinary sport. During my own journey I have worked out exactly what a pilot preparing to embark on their own such voyage needs. I wrote a list of requirements and designed the Epic with this in mind. The easy aspect ratio of 5.0 is the perfect balance between safety and performance. With only 42 optimised cells the Epic is a simple, rugged, and very clean paraglider. I gave the Epic an easy pitch profile and arc for a high degree of passive safety, allowing the pilot to concentrate on the flying. I wish I could have had an Epic when my story began!

Características de diseño

CCB Cord Cut Billow

La tecnología Cord Cut Billow ha sido desarrollada para mejorar la fricción de forma, estabilidad de la vela y rendimiento general de nuestros parapentes. Dos costuras corren en sentido de la cuerda a través de los paneles superiores del borde de ataque para acomodar el hinchamiento del panel que se produce cuando el ala está inflada. Se crean hasta cinco centímetros de exceso de material en los lados de un panel plano inflado al curvarse sobre un perfil de ala. La tecnología Cord Cut Billow absorbe el material con un panel 3D dando como resultado menos arrugas y una forma de perfil de costilla y estabilidad mejoradas.

Snap Lock

Snap Locks are lightweight compact attachments that effortlessly connect brakes to the risers with a small focused magnet inside the catch and an internal locking system that holds the handle in every direction except down toward the pilot. This unique design feature means the handles don’t fall off while kiting, packing, or performing maneuvers. The Snap Lock system solves many of the problems associated with press-studs and magnets that every pilot faces.

Tiburón fuerte

Un morro de tiburón agresivo optimiza la presión interna en todas las velocidades.

3D panel shaping

A very clean and accurate lower surface .

Three-riser system

Simple and efficient.

Dedicated big ears riser

Easy descent when you need it.

Triple-finger C diagonal ribs

Complicated stuff that goes on inside the wing.

Trailing edge mini-ribs

More positive braking.

Shattered colour scheme

Just so refreshing.
