Info

The LUNA 2 is a versatile reflex wing, specifically designed for paramotoring. It offers the perfect blend of comfort and safety, married with performance and speed. It's the ideal choice for intermediate pilots to seasoned competitors and BGD Team pilot Benedikt Bös won the British Paramotor Open Championship in both 2019 and 2020 on a LUNA 2.

The LUNA 2 is an evolution of the original LUNA, itself a benchmark. It now has a pronounced sharknose, a re-optimised reflex profile, a new elliptical arc, new extra-terrestrial colour schemes, and BGD's trademark CCB panel shaping and exceptional handling. The new risers are equipped with dedicated tip-steering TST handles, high and low hangpoints, trimmers and a speed system. With these new features the LUNA 2 is ready to meet whatever challenges you dream of!

Tech

Semi-reflex Section

We have incorporated a semi-reflex section into the LUNA 2 profile to help improve stability at higher speeds.

Strong Shark Nose

An ultra aggressive shark nose optimises stability at all speeds. Not all sharks are created equal and BGD’s shark noses are very aggressive, maximising the effects of the technology.

135mm Speed Bar Travel

We have found 135mm to be the perfect amount of speed bar for the LUNA 2, allowing us to achieve maximum speed range while keeping well within the stability limits.

Arched diagonals

Carefully arched diagonals in the internal structure of the LUNA 2 distribute tension more evenly across the wing, reducing wrinkles and increasing performance.

Elliptical arc

The LUNA 2 has a flattening ration of 11.5% meaning the arc is high and elliptical. This gives great handling, and is also stable under power.

Progressive Stability

Progressive stability has been designed into all our gliders to help pilots feel turbulence and avoid it. This makes for safer and more comfortable flying.

Replaceable brake pullies

With a simple around-and-through, you can easily replace those squeaky old brake pulleys or switch them for rings.

8.5 cm trimmers

The LUNA 2 is fitted with trimmers, with a range of 8.5cm.

Tip Steering Handles

We have added dedicated magnetically fastened tip steering handles into the LUNA 2 to make high-speed manoeuvres easy and safe.

Target

Three, two, one, booster ignition and we have lift-off for the LUNA 2, our out of this world PPG wing with the ultimate mission, to widen the possibilities of airborne exploration for PPG pilots. This high-tech versatile craft will safely carry pilots to discover new horizons and then softly bring them back to Earth.


Bruce's notes

With the LUNA 2 we have focused on an easy inflation, fun manoeuvrability, stability, and top speed – all the things you need for paramotoring adventures. Cord Cut Billow (CCB) along the LUNA 2’s leading edge helps keep the reflex profile smooth and perfect, and the reflex makes for excellent stability at all speeds.
