Select options BGD – Base Lite $4,500.00 The Base Lite is the best Sport class paraglider we have ever made. Based on the EN-B Base, the Base Lite really pulled out all the stops in a paraglider. Lighter means less inertia, creating higher overall performance, reduced shooting, increased roll stability and easier, sharper handling. Bruce increased the usable speed range by adding up to 3km/h to the top speed through the optimised speed bar. The ultra-streamline line set, mixing PPSL with both Kevlar and Dyneema micro lines, reduces drag and really improves performance by up to one point in the glide. Plastic wire reinforced leading edge mini-ribs create a solid leading edge on speed by essentially adding 80 cells without the weight/seams of full ribs. In addition, the Base Lite has a strong sharknose, Cord Cut Billow and Bruce Goldsmith handling. And all that fits into a little bag, amazing! All in all, the Base Lite launches in the most ambitious patches, sniffs and bites thermals like a great white, climbs like a eagle, speeds like Road Runner, and glides like a foiling catamaran, with an improvement in passive safety.
