BGD Cyclone (Heavy Trike)
The Cyclone is a tough and strong 38m²/42m² semi-reflex wing for powered flight. It’s designed for trike or foot-launched tandems.
A stable and collapse-resistant wing with good roll stability ensures comfortable flights for both passenger and pilot, while sharp but light handling means it’s easy to have fun with too. It’s easy to launch and land without the need for long runways, inflating uniformly and rising quickly with no tendency to overshoot. The specialist risers have long-range trimmers and tip-steering handles, and an A-assist system to help with trike launches. This links the A-risers to the trike, so the trike pulls the A riser instead of the pilot, leaving the pilot’s hands free to control the throttle and steering.
The ability to introduce others to the unique sensations and perspectives of flight is something all tandem pilots everywhere know and love. Using trikes opens it up to just about everyone, making flight possible for passengers with restricted mobility who would not be able to foot-launch. Roll stability ensures a smooth and comfortable ride.
This wing is for professional or leisure tandem paramotor pilots, or for carrying loads. It can be used for transporting equipment to out-of-the-way places, or for sky-camping with room for some extra luxuries.
