The Golden5 is the lynchpin in the Gradient lineup, uniting pleasure and safety.
Designed and developed for pilots who know how to fly, but wish to progress and explore all the possibilities paragliding has to offer.
The Golden5 is stable on every axis and can be flown by pilots with relatively little experience making it a great glider to progress with.
The Golden5 is as easy as riding a bike; dextrous, comprehensible, physically easy to control and fantastic for ground handling making it ideal for hours of soaring near the relief. Long brake travel make it a great glider for top landing, and allow for easy takeoffs.
HIKE AND FLY
Whatever conditions are at take off, windy or not, the Golden5 is very predictable. The glider inflates easily and is simple to correct even when pilot input is not perfectly symmetrical. It has no exaggerated dynamic behaviour nor tendency to overfly at takeoff.
The Golden5 is both compact and solid allowing us to learn to thermal safely and to start logging our first XC kilometers. The glider is very predictable and offers great passive security even in turbulent air. It is a glider which need not blush in the face of high performance wings, as it climbs with disconcerting ease.
Basic maneuvers like wing-overs, SAT, or even helicopters are possible with the Golden 5 making it a great glider with which to learn fundamental freestyle piloting.
This glider was not designed with acro in mind.
The Golden5 is not a glider designed for distance competitions, yet it is perfectly adapted to the entry into this discipline.
