TARGET

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!

DESCRIPTION

A resonance of the EPIC with a stripped-down line-set and an 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 its lower 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!

BRUCE'S NOTES

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.

DESIGN FEATURES

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.
