BGD Punk (EN B)
BGD PUNK EN/LTF-B TIME FOR CHANGE
Rebellious, fun, and enlightening. Not just talk, the Punk actually tells you the truth about the air. Stay informed, make your own choices, fly the Punk.
We have received a lot of very positive feedback on the BGD PUNK. It has been frequently described as a great all-rounder or a swiss knife glider in the EN B class. Make sure that you put the PUNK on your list when you are looking for your next EN B wing. Susy's impressions of the BGD PUNK (YouTube Video).

We are all punks. Our subculture has shocked the established order and constraints of society. We break the rules of nature, disregard the norms, and have a hell of a time doing it. The High-B PUNK was designed to sink deep into that rebellious part of your brain and enlighten you of reality. Are you a pilot that wants to know the truth? The punk will expose it.
We are on a mission to put taste, control, and attitude back into gliders. The PUNK is a modern-day rebellion towards bland tasteless paragliders. This new age wing is an explosion of feeling, controllability, and fun. It is a matter of respect. The punk will speak the cold hard truth about the conditions giving you eyes wide-open safety and performance. End propaganda. Become enlightened. Make your own choices. Fly the un-censored Punk.
Controllable performance is what I call it. In the PUNK, I have added an extra level of control. Using our trademark “Bruce Goldsmith Handling” and “power steering” there is a kind of inner harmony in the glider that reacts better to the pilots’ inputs.
“When I step off the launch with the PUNK overhead I feel more comfortable and no longer intimidated. The speed and performance are easier to control and understand.”
The Punk passes the certification tests very easily and even if you fly over the top of the weight range the safety of the glider is not affected. Because of this, we have been able to use extended weight ranges for the Punk certification, which means that even if you fly the glider over the top of the ideal weight range, you are still flying within the certification.
Extended certified ranges are available on 4 sizes of Punk and are XS=50-70, S=60-95, M=75-100, ML=88-113.
