From the beginning to cross country flights

Gin's principle design consideration was to give pilots discovering paragliding a glider which is easy to fly, comfortable and extremely safe, which would also appeal to regular pilots wishing to fly totally relaxed. Gin has dedicated his days and nights to developing this amazing new wing. He flew hundreds of hours with prototypes until he was finally satisfied that the wing was just as he imagined.

Easy, progressive and fun

The latest materials and technologies have been used for the construction of the Bolero 4. Gin and his R&D team have spent a lot of time making the inflation perfect and homogeneous in all different kinds of conditions. The wing is thus easy to ground handle and very forgiving on take off.

These improved characteristics are the result of a new leading edge that is reinforced with flexible plastic battens. This enables a reduction in weight over conventional mylar inserts, while maintaining the same aerodynamic characteristics. A big effort was made on reducing the weight of the glider—to improve the inflation, the performance and the general behaviour of the wing.

The fabric for the top surface uses a water-based coating for better durability and resistance to porosity. In flight, the Bolero 4 is docile and damps air mass movements to keep the pilot serene at all times. A thorough trimming of the wing provides great stability on all axes, while still maintaining precise handling. The wing will obey any brake input immediately but without excess.

The sink rate has been improved to make it more efficient while thermalling and also to avoid beginners banking the glider excessively if they are too sudden on the brake. The brake travel is thus long and progressive. On landing, the Bolero 4 will only surprise you with its ease.

A new standard in its class

Gin Gliders is proud to release a wing with such good performance, especially in terms of handling. Among its competitors on the market, the Bolero 4 is the only high-level entry wing that is EN A and LTF 1 certified. This proves that the Bolero 4 is the right choice for students from their first steps in the air to their first long flights and much more.

Perfect for paramotoring

The characteristics of the Bolero 4 perfectly match the requirements of paramotorists. This is why the Bolero 4 is now available with optional paramotor trim risers that may be specified when ordering.
