The SEED is our affordable premier training paraglider, made for ground-handling only. The SEED was developed from the EN-B EPIC, and acts and feels like a full-size paraglider. It is made from durable 50g cloth and has three risers. It’s a fun accessory for parawaiting at take-off, practising kiting, or just goofing around like Spiderman.
Blown out? Grab a SEED and refine your skills! Ground-handling is never a waste of time, even for professionals. You can learn essential skills that directly relate to in the air flying. Deflations, stalls, brake pressure and active piloting can all be practised while kiting the SEED safely on the ground.
I kept the design of the SEED as simple as possible, while incorporating the most essential and up-to-date designs features. A strong shark nose, CCB, 3D panel shaping on the lower surface and countless other features make the SEED feel like a normal paraglider. I always say, “good ground-handlers make good pilots” and the SEED was produced to teach the most essential skills in a glider small enough to manage even in strong winds.
EPISODE 2 - BRUCETUBE – As a child, Tyr Goldsmith spent a lot of time around paragliders, hanging out at take-off and the LZ. He took the opportunity to play with wings and practise ground-handling, something we should all do a bit more. Maybe... More
