Deflations, stalls, brake pressure and active piloting can all be practiced while kiting the SEED safely on the ground.

DESIGNER’S NOTES

I kept the design of the SEED as simple as possible, while incorporating the most essential and up-to-date designs features. A strong shark nose, CCB, 3D panel shaping on the lower surface and countless other features make the SEED feel like a normal paraglider. I always say, “good ground-handlers make good pilots” and the SEED was produced to teach the most essential skills in a glider small enough to manage even in strong winds.

DESIGN FEATURES

Cord Cut Billow (CCB)

Cord Cut Billow technology has been developed to improve the form friction, glider stability and overall performance of our paragliders. Two seams run chord-wise across the top panels of the leading edge to accommodate the panel ballooning that happens when the wing is inflated. Up to five centimetres of excess material is created on the sides of an inflated flat panel bending over a wing profile. Cord Cut Billow technology absorbs the material with a 3D panel resulting in fewer ripples and improved rib profile shape and stability.

Snap Locks

Snap Locks are lightweight compact attachments that effortlessly connect brakes to the risers with a small focused magnet inside the catch and an internal locking system that holds the handle in every direction except down toward the pilot. This unique design feature means the handles don’t fall off while kiting, packing, or performing maneuvers. The Snap-Lock system solves many of the problems associated with press-studs and magnets.

  • 3D panel shaping
  • A very clean and accurate lower surface.
  • Three-riser system
  • Simple and efficient.

    by nankali2002 (verified owner)

    I learned how to paraglide 1995. Back then you had to kite with the wing expected to use. While learning it was not unusual to be dragged many feet and be scratched because not mastering kiting and a big wing. I am picking up the sport again I am 48 years old and not interested in being dragged or adding unnecessary wear and tear to my main wing. Is an extraordinary thing that this wing is available at this price because it really helps with the thing I mention and likely decreases the frustration students feel while learning and thinking they will never master kiting. The Seed has an ideal travel size and the quality is extraordinary good. If you are learning this is a product that should be used, including safety reasons and preserve the integrity of your main wing.
