Every parent knows that deep nervous feeling in their stomach as his or her kids first leave the nest. Tyr, my son, is doing his first flights now. Gunnar, and Freyja are almost old enough. I have to believe I did the best possible job equipping them with them the necessary tools for society and flying. I imagine instructors have the same feelings about their students.
I don't want my kids, instructors, or anyone to worry about how their paraglider will react so I designed the Adam EN-A. It is light enough for little Freyja to carry up the mountain and durable enough for the boys.


The Adam is our EN/LTF-A certified wing, designed for beginners or leisure pilots. Durable Dominico D30 tissue constructs 34 enhanced clean cells into a safe, 4.8kg paraglider. 
I believe smooth panels and uncorrupted ribs bring stability to my paragliders so I designed the Adam with Cord Cut Billow (CCB). By adding CCB to the leading edge’s top panel the 3D bulge wraps around the rib without deforming it.

This is the first glider of this level to which I have added mini-ribs on the trailing edge. Normally large celled paragliders without mini ribs have a lot of billow near the trailing edge and around the brake fold. When this billow is folded down with a brake input everything gets pulled out of shape. Mini ribs reduced the billow around the brake fold creating more responsive brake input and a cleaner brake fold.
The Adam comes in a lot of color. We have found that being seen in the air and on the ground is safe for instructors and new pilots. Bright colors help.


I have been designing paragliders since 1990 and this is by far the best EN-A glider I have ever made. Back in those days, the Black Magic DHV-1 was designed from a basic parachute with unsupported cells and square box cell design. It worked but needed improvement.

Over the years we have come a long way. CCB and mini-ribs creates fitted 3D cells, unsupported cells are supported with diagonal ribs and span wise bands clean up the bottom surface. All this new technology has greatly improved the safety and performance of beginner wings.

For the Adam I believe I have found the best combination of simplicity and technology. It launched really easy, flies responsively, and has the highest safety rating available. I would even let my kids fly it.

paraglider EN B - Wasp Bruce Goldsmith Design


For the pilot who wants to continue to progress after leaving school or the recreational pilot looking for a safe reliable wing, with the latest technology. Performance enhancing design details from the Tala are incorporated in the leading edge giving better stability and sail cleanness.


The Wasp offers relaxed and responsive handling at the same time as providing performance that will take you far. Positioned in the safer end of the EN-B level it is a rock solid glider you can feel relaxed under even if the going gets tough.
From the moment the wing rises overhead she inspires confidence, once in the air the pilot can sit back and enjoy an easy fun glider.
The Wasp is the latest evolution in the intermediate class designed by Bruce Goldsmith with our new special leading edge technological innovation enhancing stability and performance at the same time.


The Wasp is a superb combination of elegant design combined with the newest technology in the industry. The wings structure is as clean as it is simple. The efficient line layout gives a total line length of just 328m on the M size.

Plastic in the leading edge reduces the overall glider weight and the elliptic leading edge openings give a clean nose with progressive and smooth collapse recovery.

Bruce Goldsmith’s designs have always had a reputation for having the best handling in the industry and the Wasp is no exception. The Wasp is responsive and reassuring at the same time quickly giving the pilot the feeling that the wing is just an extension of your own body.

paraglider EN C - Tala Bruce Goldsmith Design


For pilots who would previously have chosen an EN-C or an EN-D, and who are looking for accessible high performance. This wing is both great as a serial comp wing or a hike and fly glider.


The Tala is a reassuring three liner for XC pilots who want the very best performance in a glider that is simple, lightweight and fun to fly.


In recent years gliders have got more and more complicated, with more cells, more ribs, extra mini ribs and ever increasing amounts of plastic. The idea behind the Tala is to produce a wing that has a low cell count for its class, but the smoothness of each cell is improved though the latest technology.


This has the advantage of reducing the weight and the complexity of the wing whilst keeping the very best performance due to the very low line consumption.


The glider weighs in at just 4.90kg for the 25 sq. m.
There are no lightweight materials in it either, its a pure 3 liner and only 238m which is closer to the line consumption of a 2 liner than a 3 liner.
