BGD Seed

BGD Seed Ground training wing

We use The BGD Seed here in the School at axis amongst other training gliders. It is a really useful tool and the most realistic and close to a full size glider. Not only can you kite in wind, but it forward launches really well which the others don't do. Super usefull for PPG pilots waiting for training.

Blown out? Grab a BGD 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.

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.

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.
