Description

Dérivée de la CURE, la LYNX est le prédateur ultime pour le cross-country. Optimisée pour plus de vitesse, plus légère, plus homogène, encore plus maniable et compétitive, elle conserve une certification EN-C pour que les pilotes expérimentés volent en toute sérénité.

La LYNX dispose des nouveaux élévateurs BGD LITE avec système d’accélérateur optimisé pour la performance. Avec un nouveau suspentage Edelrid Magix pro 8000U comp et le dernier tissu hybride Skytex 32g / m² de chez Porcher Sport, la LYNX est au top de la technologie. Avec son volume réduit et son poids de seulement 3,6 kg (S), la LYNX EN-C se montrera très agile au sol, et une fois en l’air elle vous placera au sommet de la chaîne alimentaire.

Spécificités techniques

Strong shark nose

An ultra aggressive shark nose optimises stability at all speeds. Not all sharks are created equal and BGD’s shark noses are very aggressive, maximising the effects of the technology.

Progressive stability

Progressive stability has been designed into all our gliders to help pilots feel turbulence and avoid it. This makes for safer and more comfortable flying.

Cord cut billow (CCB)

Das Cord Cut Billow System wurde entwickelt um die Oberflächenqualität, das Widerstandsvermögen und die aerodynamische Güte eines Gleitschirmes zu verbessern. Im Wesentlichen besteht das CCB aus zwei längsverlaufenden Nähten auf dem Obersegel, um den 3D Ballooning Effekt der Eintrittskanten bei einem befüllten Schirm zu verbessern. Das System reduziert die Falten und Knitterstellen, die entlang der Rippen an der Nase des Gleitschirmes verlaufen, erheblich. Nicht nur, dass diese Falten am Obersegel vorkommen, sie haben auch Auswirkungen auf die Rippen selbst, da sie die Profiltreue verändern und die Rippenstabilität reduzieren. Das CCB bringt generelle Verbesserung in der Leistung und ein Mehr an Stabilität im Segel. Das ist ein signifikanter Schritt nach vorne in der Konstruktion von Gleitschirmen.

Optimised line layout

Over the years we have perfected our system of optimising the line layout of our wings. We use numerous equations, software, and the plain old guess-and-check method to build our line layouts. The result is simple: fewer lines making stronger, faster gliders.

Snap Locks

Snap Locks are lightweight, compact attachments that effortlessly connect the brakes to the risers. A small focused magnet inside the catch and an internal locking system hold the handle in place, releasing only if the handles are pulled down towards the pilot. This unique design feature means the handles don’t fall off while kiting, packing, or performing manoeuvres. The Snap Lock system solves many of the problems associated with press-studs and magnets.

Leading edge mini-ribs

Situated along the leading edge are reinforced mini-ribs, designed to help produce a rock-solid profile while on speed bar.

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.

Maximised unsupported cells

Optimised 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 minimise line consumption reducing drag thus improving performance.

Post C-band

We have added a Post-C band running along the top surface which seamlessly moves down to the 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 applying 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 Cs. We have solved this problem with the Post-C Band, an eloquent, lightweight, clean and volume reducing solution.

Weight-optimised ribs

We have maintained the strength and rigidity of the ribs while removing unnecessary material. This means less weight for no increase in cost or reduction in strength of the wing. The hole positioning and size depends on the loads taken locally by the sail, and it is thanks to recent developments in our software that it is now possible to accurately calculate this.

Public

Voler en quête d'aventures, loin de toute civilisation ; chercher ses limites, prendre ses propres décisions ; jouer avec les éléments pour faire défiler les paysages. Que ce soit un voyage en solitaire à la découverte de soi, ou que vous soyez observé silencieusement par les milliers de spectateurs de la X-Alps, La LYNX est taillée pour les athlètes et pilotes expérimentés qui veulent s’échapper dans la nature et vibrer au gré d’une authentique aventure.


Notes du concepteur

Que vous soyez un pilote intrépide à l’affût d’un décollage par tous les temps ou que vous choisissiez minutieusement vos journées, que votre décollage ressemble à un green de golf ou à la surface de Mars, j’ai conçu la gamme BGD LITE pour les pilotes qui ont besoin du meilleur compromis possible en toutes circonstances : moins de poids, une maniabilité incroyable et des performances en hausse.

Concevoir la voile de classe sport la plus performante de la gamme BGD LITE était un défi stimulant et gratifiant, puisque les progrès ont été remarquables. A l'origine conçue pour la mythique Red-Bull X-Alps, la LYNX a rapidement évolué vers une voile plus polyvalente. J'ai commencé sur la base de la CURE que j'ai fini par retravailler intégralement, simplifiant, recalculant, optimisant et utilisant les matériaux high-tech. Toute la gamme BGD suit cette philosophie de conception qui est un summum de Design.
