简介

A resonance of the EPIC with a stripped-down line-set and a lighter mix of materials, the ECHO shaves 500-700g while offering extra performance and versatility for no compromise in safety.

As with the rest of the BGD range, the ECHO profits from Bruce’s trademark sharp, easy handling. 3D CCB panel-shaping means a clean, high-performing aerofoil while lighter weight means less inertia, reduced shooting and increased roll stability.

Our strong shark nose adds stability to the leading edge at all speeds, and a silky-smooth Ronstan ball-bearing speed system keeps bar-action smooth on those long flights. The ECHO offers clear feedback with a relaxed feel in active air, and epic performance for its class!

科技

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。

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。

快速磁锁

快速磁锁是轻松连接刹车和组带的一个轻质而紧凑的附件。内部锁定系统和小磁块一起将刹车手柄在各个方向都锁定住,除了往下朝向飞行员的方向。这个独特的设计意味着在地面控伞、叠伞或练习科目时,刹车手柄都不易脱落。快速磁锁系统为飞行员轻松化解按扣和磁铁所带来的诸多烦恼。

最优的伞绳分布

多年来,我们用来优化伞绳分布的设计系统已几近完美。我们使用大量的数学工程,程序软件,以及简单而传统的“猜测并检验”的方法来构建伞绳分布。结果简单明了:更少的伞绳,更坚固且更快的伞。

小A组带设计

我们添加了一个“大耳朵”A组组带,它的伞绳占其余A组伞绳的1/2。这有助于轻松使用“大耳朵”,同时有助于加速飞行时的速度及稳定性。加速系统轻巧简单,没有反射,确实有助于加速时的滑翔性能。

让人眼界大开的安全性

会“交流”的伞更安全。更安全的伞会让飞行员表现更好。表现更好的飞行员会飞得更远。飞得更远的飞行员会更开心。因此,让人大开眼界的安全性能够让飞行员们更开心。

无可挑剔的螺旋表现

这款伞的螺旋表现让人惊叹——“螺旋锁死”对低展弦比的初级伞而言可能是个问题,但我们采用不同的倾角和下沉率,对伞进行了广泛的螺旋测试,从来没有一次能够将螺旋“锁死”!这对教学用伞而言极不寻常,是一个额外的安全保障。

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。

重量优化的翼肋

在保持翼肋强度和刚度的同时,我们去掉了非必要的材料使用。这意味着,在不增加额外成本,也不妥协强度的前提下,让伞变得更轻盈。孔的位置和大小取决于局部翼面所承受的载荷,我们最新的软件可以对此进行精准测算。

目标群体

The ECHO is THE all-rounder in our range, created for just-out-of training newbies, avid hike-and-flyers, cross-country pilots, world travellers, soarers, vol-et -skiers, wagga/soaring dudes and vol-bivouacers. With a solid blend of performance and no-stress safety the pilot who loves every kind of paragliding will find one wing does it all with this little lightweight package. Stripped-down, open-minded, and dressed to impress, the ECHO will please every pilot it floats over!


金匠笔记

Knowledge is power. To fly a wing well, I think it is important for a pilot to feel in control. Having an understanding of the air you are flying in is as important as the glider’s own passive safety. I design all my wings to give a reassuring level of feedback, to empower pilots with a good understanding of the conditions. I call it progressive stability, and my wings incrementally react to the different levels of turbulence, providing essential feedback, so the pilot can stay well within their comfort zone. Shielding a pilot from turbulence might make them feel safer initially, but they can be blissfully unaware of the risks they might be taking when the air is becoming more turbulent.

Fly safely, fly confidently, fly with progressive safety and know the air around you.
