BiGolden3 - EN certified tandem paraglider

After a worldwide success of the BiGolden (850 wings produced) Gradient brings new tandem glider BiGolden3. The wing's maneuverability has been improved by using a refined computer program while designing the prototypes. The brake force of the BiGolden 2 is lower and control more precise than in it's predecessor model, what makes thermalling more comfortable. Further, the long time proven Gradient construction method for achieving a low wing weight makes the new BiGolden 2 even easier to take off in any conditions. According to Gradient director and test pilot Ondrej Dupal, the BiGolden3 primarily aims at the target of professional tandem pilots group who appreciate agile flight characteristics.

The new BiGolden3 is available in 2 sizes (38 and 42) and three standard color combinations with a new visual design.
