Description

Environ 20% plus légère que la PUNK, la RIOT est une aile vous invitant à découvrir les chemins de la liberté. Sous son originale robe pixelisée, on retrouve des caractéristiques de conception éprouvées: Shark-Nose, CCB, sécurité “Billow Eyes Wide Open” et stabilité progressive font de la RIOT un parapente performant et très agile qui vous fera réellement progresser.

Nous avons également étendu la gamme de poids de la plupart des tailles, de sorte que vous soyez sereins lorsque vous aurez besoin de décoller avec tout votre équipement pour partir dans de grandes expéditions de de marche et vol.

Spécificités techniques

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.

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.

Cord cut billow (CCB)

Cord Cut Billow technology has been developed to improve the form friction, glider stability and overall performance of our paragliders. Two seams run chord-wise across the top panels of the leading edge to accommodate the panel ballooning that happens when the wing is inflated. Up to five centimetres of excess material is created on the sides of an inflated flat panel bending over a wing profile. Cord Cut Billow technology absorbs the material with a 3D panel resulting in fewer ripples and improved rib profile shape and stability.

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.

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.

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.

Optimised line layout

The line layout is carefully calculated using an advanced structural calculation program. Line loads, stretch, knots and angles are taken into account and every line is optimised to perfectly maintain glider shape and maximise 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.

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.

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.

Public

La RIOT est la version allégée de la PUNK, elle se destine aux pilotes rebelles qui cherchent à alléger leur fardeau pour accéder à la liberté ultime. La RIOT, vous informe objectivement sur votre environnement, ce qui vous offre le choix de la décision et du placement, tandis que l’expertise de BGD est là pour vous garantir la sécurité passive d’une vraie B avec des performances au top de la catégorie.

Avec la RIOT vous serez équipé pour être libre et faire du ciel et des montagnes votre terrain d’expression !


Notes du concepteur

Avec la RIOT, nous avons obtenu un superbe équilibre package-performance-maniabilité, qui ravira tous les pilotes loisirs ambitieux. Nous y retrouvons toutes les qualités de la PUNK, avec en plus, grâce à la réduction du poids, des commandes plus légères et plus directes. En limitant l'utilisation des joncs uniquement au bord d'attaque, nous obtenons aussi une aile très compacte et pratique au pliage. En effet, contrairement à beaucoup d’autres marques, où les joncs peuvent s'étendre jusqu'aux C, chez BGD nous préférons arriver à une voile parfaitement tendue grâce à l’optimisation des renforts et à l’utilisation astucieuse de bandes de tension.

Les gammes de PTV étendu concernent 4 tailles de RIOT et correspondent à XS=50-70, S=60-95, M=75-100, ML=88-113.

Les plages de poids étendues sont proposées pour des raisons d’assurance. Elles permettent aux pilotes de voler occasionnelement au-dessus du PTV idéal tout en restant assurés. Elles ne doivent absolument pas être prises en compte pour choisir la taille d'une voile.
