Epic Motor PPG Wing from BGD

INFO

Making our most versatile wing truly multi-purpose. Whether free flying or buzzing around, the EPIC MOTOR will take you through every season in style. It retains the line-set and sail of the Epic, but has a redesigned riser system to make powered flight ultra comfortable and fun. The EPIC MOTOR has a good speed range and efficient trimmer system for fast, safe flights. To free fly, simply pull in the trimmers and take to the air! The EPIC MOTOR is designed for intermediate pilots that also do free flying.

TECH

Cord Cut Billow

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.
Strong Shark Nose

STRONG SHARK NOSE

An ultra aggressive shark nose optimises stability at all speeds. Not all sharks are created equal and BGD’s shark noses are very aggressive, maximising the effects of the technology.
Stability

PROGRESSIVE STABILITY

Progressive stability has been designed into all our gliders to help pilots feel turbulence and avoid it. This makes for safer and more comfortable flying.

Elliptical Arc

ELLIPTICAL ARC

The LUNA 2 has a flattening ration of 11.5% meaning the arc is high and elliptical. This gives great handling, and is also stable under power.

SNAP LOCKS

Snap Locks are lightweight, compact attachments that effortlessly connect the brakes to the risers. A small focused magnet inside the catch and an internal locking system hold the handle in place, releasing only if the handles are pulled down towards the pilot. This unique design feature means the handles don’t fall off while kiting, packing, or performing manoeuvres. The Snap Lock system solves many of the problems associated with press-studs and magnets.
Baby A-Riser

BABY A-RISER

We have added a ‘big ears’ A riser which is also on a ½ ratio with the rest of the A lines. This facilitates easy use of big ears while helping speed and stability while on bar. The speed system is light and simple without reflex really helping glide at speed.
Motor Risers

MOTOR RISERS

Trimmers and a re-designed geometry make the PPG risers fully optimised for speed and safety. The trimmer webbing and brake pulleys have been designed to be replaceable if they become worn.
REPLACEABLE BRAKE PULLIES

REPLACEABLE BRAKE PULLIES

With a simple around-and-through, you can easily replace those squeaky old brake pulleys or switch them for rings.

HIGH OR LOW HANG POINT READY

These risers are designed to cater to low and high hang point paramotors. There are two attachment points designed into the risers allowing a low hang point paramotor to be connected to the lower attachement point and high hang point paramotors to the upper one. This gives freedom to the pilot without having to change risers.

EPIC MOTOR TARGET

We are not born with wings. Every time we take to the air, our heavy bones and featherless arms are defying nature. But who cares? It is the best feeling ever! The EPIC MOTOR is for pilots taking those first big steps into the skies, and also for seasoned pilots who want something easy to enjoy the air with. Don’t get us wrong, this PPG wing is a hoot, capable of performing SATs and helicos with ease, but it has been optimised for ease of use – easy launch, easy landing, versatility and safety. Break the laws of nature. Turn those feathered heads and take to the skies with the EPIC MOTOR.


BRUCE’S NOTES

With a easy aspect ratio of 5.0 the EPIC MOTOR has a perfect balance between safety and performance. With only 42 optimized cells the EPIC MOTOR is a simple, rugged, and very clean powered paraglider. I gave the EPIC MOTOR an easy pitch profile and arc for a high degree of passive safety, allowing the pilot to concentrate on the fun flying. The new PPG risers provide brilliant speed, safety and features that every motor pilot will appreciate.
