BGD - RIOT

New

The Punk’s lighter twin, the Riot is for fun-seeking rebels looking to lighten the load for the ultimate freedom of the skies. The straight-talking Riot tells you about the air, so you’re in control, while BGD handling, mid-B safety and high-B performance are the tools you need to be yourself and do your own thing. Break free, explore the skies and carve your own path. Have a Riot!

DESCRIPTION

Around 20% lighter than our LTF/EN-B rebel Punk, the Riot is a fun-driven freedom-seeker of a wing. Under its vibrant chaos of wild pixel colours are some serious design features: Shark nose, Cord Cut Billow, Eyes Wide-Open safety and Progressive Stability make the Riot a high-performing, informative glider with fun handling and great agility. We’ve also extended the weight ranges of most sizes, so you can load up, head off and explore the skies on long adventures.

BRUCE'S NOTES

I am very happy with the Riot because I have managed to make it a real pilots’ glider. The lighter weight makes for lighter and even more direct handling and the pack size is also very low as we are one of the few brands not putting plastic reinforcing in the back part of the sail. Despite this the sail is super clean on top between the brakes, which is achieved by careful use of sail shape and straps, rather than heavy reinforcing.

Post C Band

We have added a 'post C' band running along the top surface which seamlessly moves down to bottom surface at the tip connecting directly to the last line cascade. Instead of putting heavy plastic rods above the C lines we use this band to counter the common flip up ripple caused when adding a little brake. The problem with paragliders is when a little brake is applied the cupping of the trailing edge creates lift which often buckles the profile near the C’s. Using careful analysis during braking and it’s the interaction with our internal structure we have solved this problem with the “Post C Band” a eloquent, lightweight, clean, and volume reducing solution.
