BGD Base 2

The BGD Base 2., A follow on from the highly acclaimed BGD Base and superseding the BGD Punk, Bruce has just released the BGD base 2.

The new BGD Base 2 placed at the top of the EN B category, so, it will certainly not be a first wing but will be confidence inspiring to those looking for an easy to manage and delightful handling XC wing with top of the B class performance..

 

More distance, more fun, the BGD Base 2 inspires the confidence to fly further and expand your limits. It’s a cross-country wing you’ll feel at home on right away – love at first flight!
Crazy about flying and looking for a partner for thermalling, soaring and cross-country? The Base 2 is a dashing suitor. Its colourful, Aztec-inspired attire reflects its fun-loving nature, and it will instantly put you at ease. But don’t underestimate its serious side. You won’t tame its sporty, competitive streak and it’s proud to be top of the class when it comes to speed and performance. The BGD Base 2 will work with you to achieve your shared goals, and then set new ones, expanding your potential while keeping you safe.

50 million iterations fluid/structural analysis
Multi-reefing system
Speed riser C-Steering
The new arc design and technologies in the Base 2 have allowed us to make big increases in performance, but without losing that all-important direct, playful BGD handling. We’ve upped the cell count to 57 and increased roll stability, while the sail and line tension are fine-tuned to achieve a perfectly balanced feel in the air.

Many R&D hours have gone into perfecting the smallest details. By developing a new multi-reefing brake system, we’ve sharpened the brakes in the first part of the range to give precise control with small brake movements, while the overall brake range remains long for safety.

We’ve remodelled the risers to improve the C-steering, with an additional 'speed riser’ that links into the speed system. We’ve been careful to avoid the pilot hanging from a pulley, which can be an issue for some C-steering designs.

The BGD Base 2 has the double leading-edge design that we used in the Cure 2 which ensures the leading edge stays solid, even when you’re on full bar. Cord cut billow panel shaping means a clean, smooth and crease-free top surface, and our high-tech airflow simulation software and low-tech tufts and camera, enabled us to refine the wingtip ribs for optimal aerodynamic performance.
