BGD Seed (Ground handling mini wing)
BGD SEED - GROW YOUR GROUND HANDLING SKILLS
Great pilots were the first great ground handlers. Learn to kite, and grow your skills. Keep up at your ground handling A-game. This 14 m2 ground handling mini wing can live in a small compact bag, always ready to grab it and go for a quick ground handling session at the end of the day, after work or when you are chilling in the park
I had my first day with the Seed today, and I can now cobra launch, which I have been working on with my Mescal (possibly it’s too docile in a school setting), but I was never quite getting it. It’s a great tool, and it will get a lot of use, thank you! Pete Taylor
Blown out? Grab a SEED and refine your skills! Ground handling is never a waste of time, even for professionals. You can learn essential skills that directly relate to air flying. Deflations, stalls, brake pressure and active piloting can all be practised while kiting the SEED safely on the ground.
The SEED is our affordable premier training paraglider, made for ground handling only. The SEED was developed from the EN-B EPIC and acts and feels like a full-size paraglider. It is made from durable 50g cloth and has three risers. It’s a fun accessory for parawaiting at takeoff, practising kiting, or just goofing around like Spiderman.
I designed the SEED as simple as possible while keeping the most essential and up-to-date design 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” so the SEED was produced to teach the most essential skills in a glider small enough to manage even in strong winds.

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 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 manoeuvres. 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.
Simple and efficient.
You have to have the training and a licence to fly a paraglider. Check with your instructor if you are buying your first glider.
