Bright 5

Concept

Bright 5 – the fifth generation of the best beginners choice and choice of pilots who are looking for fun.
We believe every pilot of Bright 5 will be very happy with this new glider in terms of its flight characteristics, exceptional safety and really nice handling. Enjoyment was a must for us while developing the glider and we are sure this attribute was also fulfilled.
If you are occasionally flying pilot, maximum safety is the most important for you or you just want easy flying wing with an incredible fun element, Bright 5 is exactly for you. All these characteristics and also very good performance in its class are a challenge for cross country flying.
If you are operating paragliding school and you want to provide the best services and courses for newcomers, with Bright 5 you will definitely not be disappointed. Bright 5 is the best school glider Gradient ever built.

The Bright 5 is offered also as multipurpose free flying/paramotor paraglider. For this Gradient offers special multipurpose risers equipped with trimmers and different attachment points.

Characteristics

The Bright 5 is a basic/intermediate paraglider (homologation EN/LTF-A).
Take-off characteristics are very simple. It comes up without using any force – you can even launch it simply by moving your body, without holding the risers. While coming up the glider will straighten itself automatically. Once up, it doesn’t overshoot, so there is plenty of time to get full pre-flight control. The length of the brakes means they can absorb small errors in pilot control, but there is still a defined brake pressure in any position. Together with the wing’s stability in flight, this makes taking off easy and fun. In-flight, the wing reacts immediately to weight shift, meaning you can use small thermals and dynamic wind in a very effective way. A clear and defined stall point on the brakes means the risk of over-braking or flying too slowly is minimised.
Elegant ideas, intelligent solutions and responsibility are our watchwords not only for Bright 5.

Construction

Glider’s profile has been specially developed to deliver maximum stability over as wide a speed range as possible. The design and camber of the central curve in the glider give maximum resistance to collapse of the leading edge. The position and size of the cell openings help support this objective.
The leading edge is reinforced using integrated nylon and elastic. This ensures optimal inflation of the canopy and helps to retain the leading edge’s perfectly clean shape at maximum speed.
The well-proven three-and-half-rows and three-riser line concept with progressively differing diameters is used - a system Gradient has used for years.
The Bright 5 is another Gradient glider where we have used Everlast, a new double-coated Porcher material. This Gradient exclusive material provides gliders with long-term stability and durability. Another small, simple details are making this glider complete.
