TARGET

It’s a wild quest, flying for days away from humanity; pushing your limits, making your own decisions, immersed in nature and working with the elements to slink through the landscape using the power of the air. Whether yours is a lone journey of self-discovery, or one that is silently observed by thousands, the LYNX is for serious athletes and experienced pilots who want to get out there in nature and experience the thrills of adventure flying first-hand.

 

BRUCE'S NOTES

Are you the diehard pilot that is on the hill rain or shine, or do you pick and choose your days? Does your launch look like a putting green or the surface of Mars? One glider can’t be perfect for everything so I designed the BGD LITE collection for pilots who want less weight and improved portability with added performance.

Designing the highest performing sports class glider in the BGD LITE collection was interesting, challenging, and rewarding since the improvements are clear. It was originally for the Red Bull X-Alps but quickly evolved into a more versatile glider. I started with the CURE template and reworked it almost from the ground up, simplifying, re-calculating, and using all the latest materials. All of the BGD range follows this design philosophy and the BGD LITE collection just pushes it a little harder.
