The “flying bug” has afflicted thousands of pilots around the world and is quickly becoming the leading cause of giant FAI triangles. Luckily, doctor Bruce Goldsmith has had a number of breakthroughs in developing the EN-C CURE. Clinical trials* have proven the CURE highly effective in climb, glide, speed, safety and handling. This remedy has been developed for patients who have progressed beyond the EN-A and EN-B stages and require a higher performance treatment.

BRUCE’S NOTES

Its 3am and I can’t sleep. My mind is racing, non-stop. My wife, Arna, always says my best ideas come at night but I have to test high-G spirals tomorrow. Like a jolt, it happens. Reinforced leading edge mini-ribs combined with Cord Cut Billow would allow for an aggressive shark nose, minimal cells, and brilliant stable speed. I fall asleep in total bliss. The next morning a mix of rip-stop, plastic, and cloth create a rippled sticky mess across the leading edge of a prototype. Despite the homemade quality issues, the idea worked! A few prototypes later the CURE was born.

Out of the factory, the mini-ribs work better than I expected. It is the paraglider of my dreams (when I finally get to sleep). High performance, light design, exceptional handling, and impeccable safety all wrapped up into a neat colourful package. The EN-C CURE truly cures my craving.

BGD Cure

The Cure is the new BGD glider for the C category.
It has 6.75 aspect ratio and it’s a pure 3 liner, with digressive unsheathed lines all over.

Launching the Cure is remarkably easy for the high aspect ratio! Kiting the glider on the ground gives the impression of an easy wing.

In the air:
Flying the Cure M at 90-92 all up feels quite adequate in overall conditions with a very good control even in choppy conditions.
It can be flown easily from 85 till 95 and still retains a good maneuverability at low weight and good climb even at top weight.

The brake travel is relatively short and direct, enabling a quick and sharp turn similar in reaction and strength to a Delta 2 SM or Alpina 2 SM which is really nice! Coring the thermals with the Cure is pure pleasure! Rough, smooth, turbulent, cores can be surgically cured with this beautiful handling machine.
The strong point of the 6.75 aspect ratio Cure, is its coherent feel through turbulent air.
The roll and pitch movements feel smoother than the ones on the Cayenne 5.
I looked up many times to see if I’m really on the Cure not on the Delta 2 SM, as it felt comfortable enough in the C category.
I noticed also a very taught leading edge at trim and cruising around 50 km /h, as I was able to leave my foot on the bar in moderate turbulence giving the impression of a solid glider.

This new construction seems very successful as it gives a very coherent and homogenous feel. No wobbling and snaking around whatsoever in the normal flying envelope…

The climb in weak conditions is really good. The Cure at 90 all up is an efficient glider to get you some low saves.
Punchier thermals will get the Cure to slightly pitch back but with a fast climb. It has the efficiency of a Delta 2 SM in the very weak stuff which i think is impressive.
Doing some long glides with an Alpina 2 SM similarly loaded showed a very close glide at trim, half bar, and at top speed, with a slight edge for the Cure in lift areas.
The trim speed of the Alpina 2 SM is (+ 0.25 km) over the Cure.
The top speed of the Cure is (+ 0.5 km/h) over the A2.
Gliding at full speed in a relatively moving air, showed that sudden surges are more efficient on the Cure.

The speed bar is smooth and also similar to the Delta 2 pressure, and the full speed is around 55 km/h taken at 1000m ASL.

Big ears are stable, with a descent rate of -3m/s with bar.

Upgrading from the Base is not really a big step rather than a logical evolution for those who already mastered the Base in different conditions with ease.

Conclusion:
Name: CURE.
Ingredients:
Beautiful elongated shape glider, top performance in the category, cohesive structure, comfortable to fly, pleasurable handling, C certification, impressive choice of colors, Smile guaranteed. Smile
