Info

The LUNA 2 is a very versatile semi-reflex wing, specifically designed for powered paragliding. It is used in schools for training new pilots, while also performing at high-end competitions – our team pilot Bene won the British Paramotor Championships 2019 on a LUNA 2. Its versatility is reflected in its characteristics: the perfect blend of comfort and safety, married with performance and speed. The LUNA 2 is an evolution of the original LUNA, itself a benchmark, but it now has a re-optimised semi-reflex profile, strong shark nose and a new elliptical arc. It also benefits from a new riser speed system with dedicated tip-steering handles, trimmers and speed bar, and our trademark CCB 3D panel shaping. Exceptional BGD handling a

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 semi-reflex profile smooth and perfect, and the reflex makes for excellent stability at all speeds.
