The Base 2 comes to replace BGD´s Punk in the + EN B category. The firm extols the virtues of their new wing´s cross-country oriented character and performance, together with its great stability and safety to ¨inspire confidence¨ in progression pilots. The complete new design has a longer aspect ratio (5.7 points) and more cells (57) than the former model, to offer more glide (10.5 points) and a wider speed range (39 km/h hands free and 55 km/h maximum speed) with great passive safety and guaranteed fun for the pilot, assures the maker.

Among the design novelties, the Base 2 counts with a new multi-reefing brake system for better control and precision, remodeled risers with C-steering that have an additional ¨speed riser¨ linked to the speed system and the double leading edge design inherited from the Cure 2, among other.
