INFO

The WASP is a rock-solid wing at the safer end of its certification, and very comfortable to fly. It’s king of ease-of-use, with an outstandingly easy launch behaviour but we haven’t forgotten abut performance or handling: BGD gliders are renowned for their great handling, and the WASP is no exception – it’s responsive and great fun to fly. It’s also very versatile – it has EN/LTF B certification for free-flying, and double-hangpoint PPG risers mean it can be flown with any kind of PPG harness.

TARGET

The WASP is a reliable, easy and safe PPG wing that’s suitable for new pilots fresh out of school, and perfect to progress on. Easy to launch, comfortable and forgiving, it’s a low-stress wing which will leave brain-space free for enjoying the view, route-planning or navigation.

BRUCE'S NOTES

The WASP benefits from our latest evolution in glider design. It’s characterised by a clean and simple wing structure and a modest aspect ratio. Cord Cut Billow technology has allowed us to obtain a very clean, smooth leading edge, enhancing both performance and stability. Plastic leading-edge reinforcements gives the nose good structure and a clean shape, and and elliptical cell openings mean better tension of the lower surface, making for smoother inflation and re-inflation after collapses. Thanks to its optimised line layout, the WASP has a total line length of just 328m on the M size – that translates to less drag and more performance.
