Complete Paraglider kit.Bolero 6 XL 105-135kg, Harness And Reserve. Condition is “Used”. Dispatched with Other 48h Courier.
This complete kit is in excellent condition and has not even had 10hrs. I purchased it all from Flybubble in Sussex after I did my EP course. I then went to Spain and did my CP course with it. On my return from Spain it has never been used and simple stored (not in cramped up in the bag) in the house.
THE WING – is Gin Bolero 6 XL Weight range 105-135kg. Colour is Red Blue and White. It has been inspected on 3/8/19 by THE LOFT and given the top condition available as VERY GOOD. It has only been flown for 4 hours after than on my CP course in Spain. THE LOFT report is shown in the photos. The wing comes with a concertina bag which makes folding the wing up easier and better for the wing as you don’t want to crush the leading edge formers. The photo of the wing flying is actually me and this kit for sale, not some stock photo.
THE RESERVE – is a Gin ONE G 42 100-130kg. I have not taken it out of the harness to photo as it is installed ready to go! This was also inspected by the BHPA on 2/9/19 and specially fitted by Flybubble when I bought it.
THE HARNESS – Is a Supair Alti Rando 3 L. This is a reversible harness so when you have flown to wherever you are going, you simply turn the harness around and it all packs away into a rucksack. Very very handy!
Harness is also fitted with a Speed Bar which again has been professionally fitted and properly adjusted by Fly Bubble.
The only reason I am selling is that one of my friends got injured and since then I have lost my mojo for the sport.
I am about 5’11” and about 105kgs. The weight range given by the glider an all up weight including the kit as I’m sure you are aware.
Not a problem if you would like to come and look at it, I am in Pagham near Bognor Regis, Sussex.
Grab yourself an excellent quality, safe and well looked after set of kit at less than a 1/3 of buying new.
This is what they say about the Bolero 6-
GIN BOLERO 6: THE INSTINCTIVE CHOICE
Ever since its first version in 1999, the Bolero has provided a solid foundation for thousands of pilots to develop their skills—from the first steps on the training slopes to soaring effortlessly amongst the clouds.
START YOUR FLYING CAREER THE RIGHT WAY
The Bolero 6 is intended as a first paraglider, suitable for school use but also for regular pilots who want to fly relaxed. The glider gives just the right amount of feedback to enable pilots to develop instinctive flying skills in a safe, comfortable and progressive manner.
2ND GENERATION EPT FOR IMPROVED TAKE-OFF BEHAVIOUR
The Bolero 6 features the second iteration of EPT (Equalized Pressure Technology), our numerical method of calculating the best possible airfoil parameters for any given profile. Introduced in the Bolero 5, EPT brought many beginner-friendly improvements, such as a long and progressive brake range and a low stall speed. The Bolero 6 features further improvements such as improved take-off behaviour, stability and handling.
The Bolero 6 has 3 risers and 3 main lines spanwise per side. The simple riser and reduction in line consumption makes it easier to identify and sort out lines on the ground.
A WELL-BALANCED GLIDER
The handling of the Bolero 6 strikes the balance needed to optimally develop a pilot’s flying instincts. The brakes are precise yet forgiving. The turn is responsive and playful, but always co-ordinated and comfortable. The wing gives clean and intelligible feedback which makes it easy to learn about the air, whilst the reduced mini-oscillations ensure that pilots make comfortable progress towards flying in more active air. All this means simply more fun!
