Цель

The ECHO is THE all-rounder in our range, created for just-out-of training newbies, avid hike-and-flyers, cross-country pilots, world travellers, soarers, vol-et -skiers, wagga/soaring dudes and vol-bivouacers. With a solid blend of performance and no-stress safety the pilot who loves every kind of paragliding will find one wing does it all with this little lightweight package. Stripped-down, open-minded, and dressed to impress, the ECHO will please every pilot it floats over!

Описание

A resonance of the EPIC with a stripped-down line-set and an lighter mix of materials, the ECHO shaves 500-700g while offering extra performance and versatility for no compromise in safety. As with the rest of the BGD range, the ECHO profits from Bruce’s trademark sharp, easy handling, 3D CCB panel-shaping means a clean, high-performing aerofoil while its lower weight means less inertia, reduced shooting and increased roll stability. Our strong shark nose adds stability to the leading edge at all speeds, and a silky-smooth Ronstan ball-bearing speed system keeps bar-action smooth on those long flights. The ECHO offers clear feedback with a relaxed feel in active air, and epic performance for its class!

Заметки Брюса

Knowledge is power. To fly a wing well, I think it is important for a pilot to feel in control. Having an understanding of the air you are flying in is as important as the glider’s own passive safety. I design all my wings to give a reassuring level of feedback, to empower pilots with a good understanding of the conditions. I call it progressive stability, and my wings incrementally react to the different levels of turbulence, providing essential feedback, so the pilot can stay well within their comfort zone. Shielding a pilot from turbulence might make them feel safer initially, but they can be blissfully unaware of the risks they might be taking when the air is becoming more turbulent. Fly safely, fly confidently, fly with progressive safety and know the air around you.

Элементы Дизайна

Cord Cut Billow (CCB)

Cord Cut Billow технология была разработана что бы улучшить форму крыла, стабильность о общие полетные характеристики наших крыльев. Два дополнительных шва идут вдаль передней кромки по всему размаху крыла. Это влияет на форму секций вдоль передней кромки, когда крыло наполнено. Более 10 сантиметров дополнительного материала создается на краю наполненной секции изгибаясь вдоль профиля. Обычно это создает складки в месте сшивания, но наша технология Cord Cut Billow убирает складки преобразуя их в чистый эффективный профиль. Этот шаг улучшает профиль передней кромки и стабильность крыла.

Progressive Stability

The ECHO is designed to warn experienced pilots of light-to-moderate turbulence, rather than suddenly completely collapsing when things get really unruly. Bruce’s article in Cross Country magazine, ‘Shifting Our Thinking on Safety’, explains how “A wing that is super stable and almost never collapses can lead to more accidents, because when it does collapse the pilot is not prepared and has little experience of how to deal with the situation”. Any wing will collapse given enough turbulence. A small deflation in medium turbulence is easier to deal with and therefore safer than a big collapse in strong turbulence.

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.

Strong Shark

An aggressive shark nose optimises internal pressure at all speeds.

Оптимизированная стропная система

В течении многих лет мы довели до совершенства нашу систему оптимизации строп наших крыльев. Мы используем большое количество уравнений, программного обеспечения, и старых добрых методик испытаний что бы рассчитывать новые стропные системы. Результат прост: меньше строп - быстрее и качественнее полет.

The ECHO is constructed with a mix of lightweight but robust, proven, materials.
