简介


“Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery, none but ourselves can free our minds!” Bob Marley

Feeling tethered to the nine-to-five or crushed by the daily grind? You need some lightness to free your mind. Grab your Base 2 Lite, hike up to a launchable place and take to the open skies.

The Base 2 Lite is a high-performance sports class paraglider that is easy to handle and a joy to fly. It has the same great handling and feel as the standard Base 2, and pilots say they feel at home on it straight away. It speaks your language with clear, understandable feedback and ‘feely’ wingtips that tell you about the air. It’s relaxing to fly, leaving plenty of mental bandwidth for you to be working out where the next thermal will be, or whether that grassy ridge would make a good camping spot.

Its light sail makes for an even easier launch than the standard Base 2, and the brake pressure is slightly lighter. Base is in the name and the nature of this wing. It thermals beautifully, is smooth and relaxed in the turn, and will get you up to the wispies in no time. For gliding on bar, the C-steering handles are light to operate for effective steering.

科技

Lite Speed-Risers/C-Steering

For lightness, easy handling, and resistance, the Base 2 Lite’s risers are made with a careful mixture of Dyneema and Kevlar webbing. The risers are equipped with a new ‘speed riser’. Using an extra riser, our new "speed riser"attaches the back of the speed system to front of the C-line steering handle thus balancing the load on the C-steering handle making a lighter, simpler, and easier C-line steering system, and avoiding a design where the pilot hangs from a pulley.

Soft Links

The Base 2 Lite comes with soft links as standard. They are lighter than maillons, easy to use, reliable and safe.

Unsheathed Lines

The Base 2 Lite features only lightweight, drag-reducing unsheathed micro-lines that have been manufactured at the highest standard by Edelrid and Liros

气流小飘带

在研发阶段,我们采用上翼面上的众多小飘带来帮助视觉化该处的空气流动。录制并慢速回放这些小飘带的运动,能帮助我们研究上翼面上方的空气流动情况。

波浪形前缘剪切(CCB)

波浪形前缘剪切技术被用来改善伞的形状摩擦,提升伞的稳定性及整体综合性能。上翼面前端这两条延翼弦方向的缝合,能够很好地适应伞充气时因“球面效应”而产生的表面“鼓起”。平板缝合的气室在满足翼形时,这种“鼓起”会在翼肋处需要高达5cm的多余布料。波浪形前缘剪切技术利用3D塑形,巧妙吸收掉多余布料,极大地减少翼肋缝合处的褶皱,有效提升翼肋翼形及稳定性。

三指对角支撑

横穿整个翼面的弦长,我们设计了穿过翼肋孔的三片式对角支撑。这一设计能够避免布料从翼肋上发生偏斜,即使在拉刹车时伞也更加坚固,从而让伞拥有更高的结构整体性。这一点在伞的后缘上显得尤其重要,因为后缘的翼形更薄,较浅的对角支撑结构承受着更高的载荷。

千万级迭代流体/结构分析

滑翔伞设计的未来在很大程度上取决于模拟。不用再一个一个设计并生产雏形伞,现在,我们采用特别研发的结构/空气仿真程序,可以准确模拟出数以百计的伞。实际上,我们现在可以使用该程序测试虚拟的设计雏形,我们的每一款伞,现在都能实现200多次的模拟雏形,相关分析涉及多达5000万次的结构/空气迭代计算。

渐进式的稳定性

我们设计的伞全部都采用渐进式的稳定性,帮助飞行员及时感知颠簸并避开。这让飞行变得更加安全、更加舒适。

最大化无支撑气室

翼展方向上的载荷分布受伞绳布局的影响,最优化的无支撑气室群专为完美匹配该载荷分布而设计。通过强韧的内部结构,在翼展反向上产生更大张力的伞绳分布,可以支撑更多的无支撑气室群。在伞的内在品质保持不变的前提下,这有助于减少总伞绳消耗,从而减小阻力,提升飞行性能。

Speed Bar Attachment

The Base 2 Lite is a high-performance EN-B paraglider, yet it weighs under 4kg in size M. We saved weight where we could without compromising functionality, and one of the ways is that there are no metal Brummel hooks on the speed bar. But it's just as easy – easier, maybe – to attach your speedbar without them.

目标群体

A lightweight sports-class EN-B, the Base 2 Lite is the perfect match for cross-country pilots who enjoy the hike to launch, for vol-bivouac adventurers looking for high-end safety, or anyone who wants a fun, performant lightweight wing. Pilots stepping up from low-B category will not find it too taxing to fly, yet its performance will impress XC distance seekers.


设计师笔记

The Base 2 Lite keeps all of the design features that make the Base 2 such a great wing. It has the new arc design, double leading edge, and the fine-tuned sail and line tension that make it so well balanced in the air. But we have optimised weight wherever we can without compromising functionality. It has been a labour of love!

It is made from Porcher Skytex 27 with 32 on the upper leading edge for durability, and unsheathed Edelrid lines throughout, which brings benefits in terms of both weight and performance.

We created new lightweight hybrid risers. We chose narrow webbing for its handling, and mixed Dyneema and Kevlar to play to the strengths of each material. Dyneema is very light but it can stretch, so we used it for the C-risers and C-steering which don’t take heavy loads. For the load-bearing A and B risers we opted for Kevlar, which holds its shape well. Soft links have come of age now, and for the first time we have fitted them as standard on the Base 2 Lite. (Maillons can be ordered as an option for pilots who prefer them). They are light and user friendly, and the riser feels nice and cohesive without the metal link in the middle.

The speed-riser C-steering is similar to that on the Base 2, but the handles are slightly smaller and we’ve reducing the padding to save weight. Even the brake handles are optimised: they are still padded and comfortable but we’ve reduced the stiffening. We kept the snaplock keepers but did away with the brake swivels.

Designing the Base 2 Lite has been a lot of work and effort focussed on many small details, and we are very happy with the result. We hope pilots will love it as much as the BGD team do.
