BiGolden 2 - EN certified tandem paraglider

After a worldwide success of the BiGolden (850 wings produced) Gradient brings new tandem glider BiGolden 2. 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 BiGolden 2 primarily aims at the target of professional tandem pilots group who appreciate agile flight characteristics.

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