BGD ECHO

New

Bounce from one flying style to another, with an ECHO.

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!
