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 uncensored 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.
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 pilot inputs.
“When I step off the launch with the PUNK overhead I feel comfortable and in-intimidated. The speed and performance is easier to control and understand.”
The PUNK passed certification tests very easily, and even flown above the top of the weight range, glider safety is not affected. We have decided to extend the certified weight ranges in four sizes of this wing, so you can load it up and still be within certification. The ideal weight ranges are shown in the Specs table.
The extended certified ranges, available on four sizes of Punk, are XS=50-70, S=60-95, M=75-100, ML=88-113.
Extended weight ranges are there for insurance reasons. They enable pilots to fly above the ideal weight range and still fly insured. They should not be considered at all when choosing your correct glider size.
