Bodyguard 7 – 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 line 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.

Direct handling, round conversion of control impulses

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.

Features

Clearly marked bands with colors and icons based on the Pilot Assistants Concept (PAS) help to quickly find the correct line level for each maneuver.

3D shaping (3DS) of the cells, optimised wing pretension and Mini Ribs (MRB) at the trailing edge improve profile fidelity and airflow and have a stabilising effect on flight behaviour.

Thanks to the Brake Gathering System (BGS) on the trailing edge, the wing precisely converts control impulses and enables fine centring in thermals.

High Definition Profile (HDP) means: plastic rods run along the top of the profile, covering between 45 and 80% of the surface depth.

The innovative Automatic Flight Stabilisation (AFS) system intervenes when the air becomes turbulent. This technique is made possible by a precise calculation of the sail pre-tension at the wingtip.

The Precision Profile Nose (PPN) provides excellent launch characteristics and high edge traction in flight.

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

MiniriMiniribs (MRB) and the Brake Gathering System (BGS) transmit control impulses to the wing with high efficiency and precision.

Thanks to the Extended Aeration System (EAS), the additional openings in the upper sail are closed during normal inflow. This is ensured by the internal pressure and the air vortex created by the inflowing air in the front area of the wing profile.
