Velocity Core Paraglider

CORE Paraglider

MEET THE CORE: Velocity Paragliders USA is excited to officially announce the NEW 2017 Core Paraglider! After many months of testing and feedback from Pilots across the nation, production of this new beginner / intermediate glider will start very soon! You can pre-order yours now to get ahead of the line!

THE “CORE” PURPOSE: Velocity Paragliders – a division of BlackHawk – has seen tremendous success over the years with our “Edge” beginner paraglider. The Schools and Pilots around the world who have loved the Edge are going to be blown away by the design of the all-new Velocity Core. The Core takes learning Powered Paragliding to a whole new level – providing everything you could expect from a beginner-friendly glider, all the way up to intermediate-level Pilots!

ALL-NEW DESIGN: This glider was designed with quality and performance in mind with every single step of the construction process. The Core features Delron Battens in the leading edge for optimal durability and shape-retention. We’ve added “Split A’s” for easier launching & the ability to perform “Big Ears” or dissension from higher-altitude flights. The core is constructed from Dominico which is used in the Industry’s higher-performance gliders. This makes it lightweight and assures a long-lasting glider that Pilots can enjoy for many years to come.

FLYING THE CORE: Boasting an incredible 9:1 glide ratio, the efficiency of the core will quickly make it a standard or “go-to” glider in the Cross-Country PPG community. The combination of unbeatable flare-authority and profound energy-retaining characteristics will provide for extremely mellow landings. The Core is Velocity’s “easiest kiting glider ever produced” due to the features mentioned and will become a favorite among Schools or those just getting into the sport. As an upper-end EN-A Glider, the Core is suitable for beginners and will accommodate Intermediate Pilots who want to push the limits of their skills. Beautiful design, unmatched performance, and extreme durability… Now THAT’S getting to the “Core” of the sport and everything that Velocity Paragliders USA stands for.

EXAMPLES FOR CALCULATING GLIDER SIZE & AVERAGE EQUIPMENT WEIGHTS

FOOT LAUNCH Example Calculations:

A Pilot Weighs:   170 lbs

AVERAGE PPG WITH Fuel:   70 lbs

AVERAGE Glider Weight:   15 lbs

TOTAL WEIGHT:   255 lbs

APPROPRIATE GLIDER = 28 or 30

**Now, just look at the chart above to see which glider falls within the TOTAL weight. In this example, a size 28 or 30 would be appropriate. It’s better to be in the upper level of the weight range, so in the example calculations above, a 28 meter Core would be a good choice. If you are adding a Lite Trike to your unit, add an additional 35 lbs to your total. As stated, age, elevation, and even additional equipment can factor in, so if there are ANY questions, please contact us or your Authorized Dealer prior to purchasing.

QUAD Example Calculations:

A Pilot Weighs:   240 lbs

AVERAGE Intruder 250 Quad WITH fuel:   225 lbs

AVERAGE Glider Weight:   18 lbs

TOTAL WEIGHT:   483 lbs

APPROPRIATE GLIDER = 42m²

**Now, just look at the chart above to see which glider falls within the TOTAL weight. In this example, a size 42 would be appropriate. The average weight of the AirMax 220 Quad WITH fuel is 170 lbs. The average weight of the Instruder 250 Quad WITH fuel is 225 lbs. If you are using a Lite Trike instead of a Quad, the Trike weighs 35 lbs. As stated, age, elevation, and even additional equipment can factor in, so if there are ANY questions, please contact us or your Authorized Dealer prior to purchasing.

The Velocity CORE Makes its Debut

Team BlackHawk Pilots Fly Velocity’s Core in Mammoth:

Team BlackHawk Pilots headed up to approximately 8,000 ft. to Mammoth California on an epic Cross-Country Paramotor trip in September 2017. To their surprise, Mike Robinson of Velocity Paragliders USA brought various sizes of the brand new CORE Paraglider for Team Pilots to play with… And play they did! What a perfect environment to test Velocity’s newest high-performance EN-A* Paraglider. High elevation, changing winds of varying speeds, Pilots of every weight and size, and many different BlackHawk motors. The consensus from this discriminating group of PPG fans? “This glider changes the game!” “My students are gonna love this glider!” “This thing flies it’s self… I love it” were just a few comments made by Pilots. The Velocity Core is going to replace Velocity’s best-selling Edge beginner Paraglider. There’s no looking back – the Core is a new “best” for Velocity and will allow those getting into the sport to experience Powered Paragliding in the way it was intended. Get yours today by calling (209) 786-7899!
