形容

我们理解你无法克制的想要飞行的冲动。Epic是一款直观、安全并且外形引人入胜的伞翼。金匠Bruce将众多高科技方案融入到Epic的设计当中,让飞行员可以根据自己的进度来从容应对飞行。这款伞翼的设计初衷就是无论在飞行中遇到什么,都让飞行员没有后顾之忧;她既会在搏击猛烈热气流时给你多重安心,又会带着你安全穿过蜿蜒的山谷风口。Epic拥有渐进式的抗塌陷性能,一定程度的颠簸可能会带来很小的“预警”塌陷,但这也意味着,由猛烈颠簸导致的突然较大的塌陷的发生概率大大降低。鲨鱼鼻设计,迷你翼肋,轻质效率加速系统,椭圆形翼尖,再加上安全而灵敏的刹车行程,共同实现安全性、操控性和飞行性能的最优组合。Epic会让你信心满满地飞跃高山,穿越深谷,去到远方再胜利归来。

设计特点

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Impeccable spiral behaviour

The spiral behaviour is astounding – spiral stability can be a problem with low aspect-ratio beginner wings, but we have tested the paraglider extensively, with different inclinations and sink rates, and never, ever has it stayed in a spiral, once! This is very unusual for a school glider and is a big safety bonus.

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.

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.

目标群

曾经,在那片遥远的土地上(1989,英国怀特岛),年轻的金匠Bruce Goldsmith废寝忘食地工作,将他所有的想法融入进了当时Black Magic这款伞翼。这款伞,不仅让年轻的金匠梦想成真,更让他从此进入滑翔伞史册。现在,全新伞翼Epic,让年轻一代的飞行员们可以跟随金匠的飞行,开启属于自己的伟大旅程。如果你内心对飞行的激情正在熊熊燃烧,那么Epic将(简直真正地)用缤纷的色彩让你得到释放。Epic适合即将第一次离开常驻热气流的飞行员,是一款有乐趣的全方面通用型伞翼。


Bruce的备忘

能够发现这么了不起的一项运动,我知道自己非常幸运。根据我自己的旅程,我很清楚一名飞行员准备踏上旅程时的需要。我写下了一份需求清单,脑海里装着这些需求来完成了Epic的设计。5.0的展弦比既让人感觉轻松简单,又是安全与性能之间的一个完美平衡。42个优化气室让伞翼简单、结实且干净。我给了Epic相对简单的翼形和弧度,这能够帮助飞行员更好地获得主动安全,从而专注在飞行上。真希望我开始飞行时也能拥有Epic这样的伞。
