BGD Adam Paraglider EN/LTF-A certified wing

The ADAM is our EN/LTF-A certified wing, designed for beginners or leisure pilots. Made from Durable Dominico D30 tissue, 34 enhanced clean cells make for a safe, 4.8kg paraglider. Smooth panels and uncorrupted ribs bring stability to my paragliders so I designed the ADAM with Chord 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 I 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.

A safe and fun glider that you can trust to get you airborne for the very first time, and then learn to fly on in comfort.

The ADAM is very colourful. We think that being seen in the air and on the ground is a safety bonus for instructors and new pilots.

TARGET

Every parent knows that deep nervous feeling in their stomach as his or her kids first leave the nest. Tyr, my son, is doing his first flights now. Gunnar, and Freyja are almost old enough. I have to believe I did the best possible job equipping them with them the necessary tools for society and flying. I imagine instructors have the same feelings about their students.

I don’t want my kids, instructors, or anyone to worry about how their paraglider will react so I designed the ADAM EN-A. It is light enough for little Freyja to carry up the mountain and durable enough for the boys.

DESIGNER’S NOTES

I have been designing paragliders since 1990 and this is by far the best EN-A glider I have ever made. Back in those days, the Black Magic DHV-1 was designed from a basic parachute with unsupported cells and square box cell design. It worked but needed improvement.

Over the years we have come a long way. CCB and mini-ribs create fitted 3D cells, unsupported cells are supported with diagonal ribs, and span-wise bands clean up the bottom surface. All this new technology has greatly improved the safety and performance of beginner wings. For the ADAM I believe I have found the best combination of simplicity and technology.

It launches really easily, flies responsively and has the highest safety rating available. I even let my kids fly it!

DESIGN FEATURES

Cord Cut Billow (CCB)

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.

Leading edge mini-ribs

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

Elliptical Cell Openings

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

34 enhanced cells

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

Diagonal ribs

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

Low line consumption

Low line consumption at 299meters on the M size.

Light and durable

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