BGD DIVA CCC BY CHAMPIONS FOR CHAMPIONS
Striving for glory in the most prestigious cross country competitions? The Diva will take you to goal.

TARGET
Designed by a world champ for the next champ, the DIVA is for pilots who want the feel of 3-liner while benefitting from the performance of a 2-liner. This is a very high performance wing and is only for highly skilled competition-level pilots.

DESCRIPTION
With 25 years of competition experience behind him, Bruce understands well the requirements of a good competition wing. The DIVA is the fastest and most advanced paraglider he has ever created. CCC certified it is constructed from a mix of standard D30 and lightweight 27g Porcher cloths. It benefits from a new minimal-drag line layout, CCB, shark nose, progressive stability and a speed-optimising profile. All that makes the DIVA very competitive yet easy to handle in the air and on the ground, with top safety for its class.

BRUCE'S NOTES
Since my son Tyr will be flying in the worlds, I designed the DIVA to be fast, but with the perfect balance of raw performance and progressive safety. The DIVA is designed to warn experienced pilots of light-to-moderate turbulence rather than completely collapsing. Bruce’s article in Cross Country magazine, ‘Shifting Our Thinking on Safety’, explains how “a wing that is super stable and almost never collapses can lead to more accidents. This is because the wing rarely collapses, so when it does collapse the pilot is not prepared and has little experience of how to deal with the situation. Any wing will collapse given enough turbulence. So if a wing is going to collapse, it’s better that is makes a small collapse in medium turbulence rather than a big collapse in strong turbulence. The nature of the collapse as well as the amount of turbulence the wing can resist before the collapse is what makes the collapse easier to cope with and safer.”
