TheGolden 5 is the latest wing from the Gradient development team. The wing is the follow-up to the most successful Gradient model ever, the Golden series. The result is pure style, an aerodynamic design with an incomparable variety of uses and the potential to meet the demands of all kinds of pilots. The agility, lift, performance and speed of the Golden5 are backed up by strong passive safety. Gradient’s typical sensitive handling and immediate feedback means pilots relax and quickly start to fly in harmony with the wing. It makes the Golden5 a truly reliable partner. Flying becomes intuitive, leaving your mind free to concentrate on making decisions about your flight. Our aim was to create a glider which would follow tumultuous development of paragliding technology of the last years and at the same time would use the latest know-how in the development of materials. A glider which would bring further improvement of performance and still keep pilot comfort, dynamics, handling and safety typical for Gradient´s gliders. The glider also behaves in a calm and predictable way in extreme situations, leaving you confident of your safety while you regain normal flight – no matter if it was you or turbulence that caused the trouble. Flying the Golden5 starts with the typical, easy take-off characteristics Gradient pilots all over the world appreciate. In the air, the Golden5 thermals flat, even when flying small circles. The wing reacts immediately to weight shifting and has precise brakes. Well-balanced wing dynamics and a defined stall point give this intermediate glider typical Gradient handling.
