BGD - PUNK

New

We are all punks. Our subculture has shocked the established order and constraints of society. We break the rules of nature, disregard the norms, and have a hell of a time doing it.

DESCRIPTION

We are on a mission to put taste, control, and attitude back into gliders. The PUNK is a modern day rebellion towards bland tasteless paragliders. This new age wing is an explosion of feel, controllability, and fun. It is a matter of respect. The punk will speak the cold hard truth about the conditions giving you eyes wide-open safety and performance. End propaganda. Become enlightened. Make your own choices. Fly the un-censored Punk.

BRUCE'S NOTES

Controllable performance is what I call it. In the PUNK, I have added an extra level of control. Using our trademark “Bruce Goldsmith Handling” and “power steering” there is a kind of inner harmony in the glider that reacts better to the pilots’ inputs.

“When I step off the launch with the PUNK overhead I feel more comfortable and no longer intimidated. The speed and performance is easier to control and understand.”

The Punk passes the certification tests very easily and even if you fly over weight the safety of the glider is not effected. Because of this we have been able to use extended weight ranges for the Punk certification, which means that even if you fly the glider over the top of the ideal weight range, you are still flying within certification.
