BGD Seed

The SEED is our affordable premier training paraglider, made for ground-handling only. The SEED was developed from the EN-B EPIC, and acts and feels like a full-size paraglider. It is made from durable 50g cloth and has three risers. It’s a fun accessory for parawaiting at take-off, practicing kiting, or just goofing around like Spiderman.

Expected lead times are 2 days to 4 weeks depending on supplier – Please contact us for more information.

TARGET

Blown out? Grab a SEED and refine your skills! Ground-handling is never a waste of time, even for professionals. You can learn essential skills that directly relate to in the air flying. Deflations, stalls, brake pressure and active piloting can all be practiced while kiting the SEED safely on the ground.

TECH

CORD CUT BILLOW (CCB)

Cord Cut Billow technology has been developed to improve the form friction, glider stability and overall performance of our paragliders. Two seams run chord-wise across the top panels of the leading edge to accommodate the panel ballooning that happens when the wing is inflated. Up to five centimetres of excess material is created on the sides of an inflated flat panel bending over a wing profile. Cord Cut Billow technology absorbs the material with a 3D panel resulting in fewer ripples and improved rib profile shape and stability.

BRUCE’S NOTES

I kept the design of the SEED as simple as possible, while incorporating the most essential and up-to-date designs features. A strong shark nose, CCB, 3D panel shaping on the lower surface and countless other features make the SEED feel like a normal paraglider. I always say, “good ground-handlers make good pilots” and the SEED was produced to teach the most essential skills in a glider small enough to manage even in strong winds.
