Punk EN/LTF-B Time for Change

Rebellious, fun, and enlightening. Not just talk, the Punk actually tells you the truth about the air. Stay informed, make your own choices, fly the Punk.

We are all punks. Our subculture has shocked the established order and constraints of society. We break the rules of nature, disregard the norms, and have a hell of a time doing it. The High-B PUNK was designed to sink deep into that rebellious part of your brain and enlighten you of reality. Are you a pilot that wants to know the truth? The punk will expose it.


We are on a mission to put taste, control, and attitude back into gliders. The PUNK is a modern day rebellion towards bland tasteless paragliders. This new age wing is an explosion of feel, controllability, and fun. It is a matter of respect. The punk will speak the cold hard truth about the conditions giving you eyes wide-open safety and performance. End propaganda. Become enlightened. Make your own choices. Fly the un-censored Punk.


Controllable performance is what I call it. In the PUNK, I have added an extra level of control. Using our trademark “Bruce Goldsmith Handling” and “power steering” there is a kind of inner harmony in the glider that reacts better to the pilots’ inputs.

“When I step off the launch with the PUNK overhead I feel more comfortable and no longer intimidated. The speed and performance is easier to control and understand.”

Eyes Wide-Open Safety

Gliders that talk are safer. Safer gliders make pilots perform better. Better performing pilots fly further. Further flying pilots are happier pilots. Eyes Wide-open Safety produces happier pilots.

Progressive Stability

The PUNK 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.



Webbed Profiles

Using our cutting edge software we have maintained the strength and rigidity of the profiles while maximizing the amount of non-load bearing material we could remove. This reduces weight and without increasing the cost or reducing the strength of the wing as a whole. Hole positioning and size is highly dependent on the loads taken locally by the sail and this can only be done correctly with recent innovations in our software.

Post C Band

We have added a 'post C' band running along the top surface which seamlessly moves down to bottom surface at the tip connecting directly to the last line cascade. Instead of putting heavy plastic rods above the C lines we use this band to counter the common flip up ripple caused when adding a little brake. The problem with paragliders is when a little brake is applied the cupping of the trailing edge creates lift which often buckles the profile near the C’s. Using careful analysis during braking and it’s the interaction with our internal structure we have solved this problem with the “Post C Band” a eloquent, lightweight, clean, and volume reducing solution.

Baby-A Riser

We have added a 'big ears' A riser which is also on a ½ ratio with the rest of the A lines. This facilitates easy use of “big ears” while helping speed and stability while on bar. The speed system is light and simple without reflex really helping glide at speed.

Triple Finger Diagonals

Across the whole chord of the profile we have designed three-piece diagonal supports that pass through the holes in other ribs. They ensure structural integrity by avoiding cloth bias from the ribs and creating a more solid wing even when brake is applied. This is particularly important near the trailing edge since the profile is thin and the diagonal ribs are shallow supporting higher loads.

Maximized Unsupported Cells

Optimized unsupported cell groups are designed to match the span wise load distribution influenced by the line layout. Coupled with a strong internal structure the line layouts that create more span wise tension can support more unsupported cells. While maintaining a homogenous wing this helps to minimize line consumption reducing drag thus improving performance.
