BGD Epic


If the passion for flight burns inside you, the Epic will set you free with, literally, flying colours. The Epic is ideal for pilots about to leave their house thermal for the first time, and a fun all-rounder for seasoned pilots.


Designed to satisfy your uncontrollable urge for flying, the Epic is an intuitive, safe and graphically appealing paraglider. Bruce has packed lots of high-tech design solutions into the Epic so you can enjoy your journey at your own pace. Designed for peace of mind no matter what you meet on your journey, she will reassure while you slay that flaming dragon thermal, and see you safely past the snaking valley breeze. A shark nose, mini-ribs, light and efficient speed bar, elliptical tips and a safe but sharp brake range work together for optimal safety, handling, and performance. The Epic will give you the confidence to make your journey over the highest mountains, across the deepest valleys and to the ends of the earth and back.
