The ECHO MOTOR is an easy, safe and versatile lightweight powered paraglider. Its stripped-down line-set and lighter materials shave grams and increase performance and versatility with no compromise in safety. The ECHO MOTOR has Bruce’s trademark handling and its low weight means less inertia, less shooting and better roll stability. 3D CCB panel-shaping mean a clean, high-performing aerofoil and the strong shark nose keeps the leading edge solid at all speeds. Smooth, easy bar action is assured by silky-smooth Ronstan ball-bearings. The ECHO MOTOR is available with free-flight or PPG riser-sets. It offers clear, concise feedback, a relaxed feel in active air and top performance for its class!

The Blizzard is an easy, safe and comfortable wing for less experienced pilots who are rapidly building their skills. It has a gentle reflex, and precise handling, so you’ll feel great while exploring your limits and progression will come naturally. We worked hard on ensuring the launch behaviour is very easy. The wing inflates smoothly and cleanly and the solid leading edge is forgiving of an over-enthusiastic launch pull. The risers are designed so the baby A’s split off high up and the pilot will naturally hold all A’s to launch. We chose a four-line layout for the Blizzard as this allow the reflex to be activated effectively by changing the trimmer settings. The long trimmers have a 12cm range, and smooth brass roller-cams are kind to the webbing and ensure smooth and easy operation. For even more speed there is also a speed bar with 12cm of travel. Trimmers out, bar on top speed is 54km/h and stability at top speed is excellent. Tip-steering toggles mean the pilot can learn and perfect wingtip-control without using the brakes when cruising at speed. The risers have both low and high hang points to suit different motors, and we’ll let you into a little secret: the test team discovered the Blizzard is beautiful to fly without a motor, too.
