YOUR RELIABLE COMPANION - FROM THE BEGINNING!

The Bodyguard 7 arise of decades of experience from the training of countless student pilots, which has perfected the wing even further. This high-end A glider combines all features that allows you a maximum safety and a successful entry into the paragliding sport. Pleasant handling, a certain amount of dynamics but at the same time soft reactions in case of turbulence characterize the wing and will increase your confidence.

With its great plus in passive safety and good performance, the Bodyguard 7 guarantees you fun with all your adventures and hooks you fast in this passion.

The Bodyguard 7 impresses with its round, sporty handling and at the same time high passive safety, so that you feel comfortable in any situation under your wing.

A clear linen concept for easy sorting, as well as color markings and icons on the risers according to the Pilot-Assistant-Concept (PAS) simplify handling on the ground.

Whether launching forward or backward, with little or no wind - when you start, the simple and continuous rise of the glider without tendency to overshoot, brings you relaxed in the air.

The direct handling and the round conversion of the control impulses, simplify the centering in the thermals as well as the learning of flight maneuvers and helps you to increase your flying technique. Even in turbulence the Bodyguard 7 gives a fair feedback and supports you easily.

With the latest technology, such as an effectively pre-formed leading edge, optimized wing pre-tensioning, mini ribs at the trailing edge and an efficient distribution of crossports for the inner pressure of the glider, improving the safety of the wing.

The Bodyguard 7 is your perfect all-round companion - whether during your training or during your first cross-country flights and enjoyable thermal lessons - he guides you safely through the air.

This confirms the award of the Bodyguard 7 with the DHV Safety Class 2, the currently highest safety level. The wing responses to rolling or dynamic situations with moderate height loss and very good handling.

• Clearly marked risers with icons and colors, based on the Pilot-Assistant-Concept (PAS) help to quickly find the correct raiser for each maneuver.

• The Precision Profile Nose (PPN) provides excellent launch characteristics and high leading-edge stability in flight.

• 3D-Shaping (3DS) of the cells, optimized wing inclination and Mini Ribs (MRB) on the trailing edge improve profile fidelity, flow and stable flight behavior.

• The High Pressure Crossport Design (HPCD) allows good air distribution and pressure equalization within the wing and increases the stability of the glider.

• With the Brake Gathering System (BGS) at the trailing edge the brake transmits control impulses precisely and allows fine turning in the thermal.
