LUNA 2 Widening the possibilities of airborne exploration for experienced pilots.

Target

Three, two, one, booster ignition and we have lift-off for the LUNA 2, our out of this world PPG wing with the ultimate mission, to widen the possibilities of airborne exploration for experienced pilots. This hi-tech versatile craft will safely carry pilots to discover new horizons and then softly bring them back to the surface!

Description

The LUNA 2 is made for powered paragliding, and offers the perfect blend of comfort, performance and speed creating the ideal choice for intermediate pilots up to competition racers. Designed from the record breaking LUNA the LUNA 2 is even better with a new strong shark nose, a re-optimized reflex profile, a new elliptical arc, a new riser speed system, extra-terrestrial colour schemes, trademark CCB 3D panel shaping, and of course exceptional BGD handling. The brand new risers feature dedicated tip-steering handles, trimmers and speed bar. With all these new features the LUNA 2 is ready to take on any challenge you dream up!

Bruce's Notes

With the LUNA 2 we have focused on an easy inflation, fun manoeuvrability, stability, and top speed – all the things you need for paramotoring ventures. Cord Cut Billow (CCB) along the LUNA 2’s leading edge helps keep the reflex profile smooth and perfect, and the reflex makes for excellent stability at all speeds.

Design Features

Strong Shark nose
An ultra aggressive shark nose optimises stability at all speeds. Not all sharks are created equal and BGD’s shark noses are very aggressive, maximizing the effects of the technology.

Reflex Section
We have incorporated a solid reflex section into the LUNA 2 profile to help improve stability at higher speeds.

Tip Steering Handles
We have added dedicated magnetically fastened tip steering handles into the LUNA 2 to make high-speed manoeuvres easy and safe.

Replaceable Brake Pulleys
With a simple around-and-through, you can easily replace those squeaky old brake pulleys or switch them for rings.

18.5 cm Speed Bar
We have found 18.5mm to be the perfect amount of speed bar for the LUNA 2, allowing us to achieve maximum speed range while keeping well within the stability limits.

Trimmers
The LUNA 2 is fitted with trimmers, with a range of 8.5cm.

Arched Diagonals
Carefully arched diagonals in the internal structure of the LUNA 2 distribute tension more evenly across the wing, reducing wrinkles and increasing performance.

High Speed Profile
The LUNA 2 is capable of an excellent top speed, thanks to its high speed profile.

Elliptical Arc
The LUNA 2 has a flattening ration of 11.5% meaning the arc is high and elliptical. This gives great handling, and is also stable under power.

Optimised Line Layout
Over the years we have perfected our system of optimising the line layout of our wings. We use numerous equations, software, and the plain old guess-and-check method to build our line layout. The result is simple: fewer lines making stronger, faster gliders.

Light and durable
The LUNA 2 is constructed with a mix of lightweight but robust, proven, materials.
