Description

The Adam is an EN/LTF-A certified wing, designed for beginners or leisure pilots. Durable Dominico D30 tissue constructs 34 enhanced clean cells into a safe, 4.8kg paraglider.
Smooth panels and uncorrupted ribs bring stability to the paragliders so the Adam is designed with Cord Cut Billow (CCB). By adding CCB to the leading edge’s top panel the 3D bulge wraps around the rib without deforming it.

This is the first glider of this level to which BGD have added mini-ribs on the trailing edge. Normally large celled paragliders without mini ribs have a lot of billow near the trailing edge and around the brake fold. When this billow is folded down with a brake input everything gets pulled out of shape. Mini ribs reduced the billow around the brake fold creating more responsive brake input and a cleaner brake fold.
The Adam comes in a lot of color. We have found that being seen in the air and on the ground is safe for instructors and new pilots. Bright colors help.

The use of shaped panels in the leading edge removes the creases along the ribs caused by the large cells. CCB is more effective on the big EN-A paraglider cells than smaller cells on more advanced models.

Situated along the leading edge are reinforced mini-ribs, designed to help produce a rock solid profile while on speed bar.

We have found that elliptical cell openings give better lower surface tension making for smoother inflation, and re-inflation after collapses.

CCB allows us to lower the number of cells without losing stability.

CCB allows us to lower the number of cells without losing stability.

Low line consumption at 299meters on the M size.

The Adam is constructed with lightweight but robust, proven, materials and only weighs 4.8kg.
