Velocity CORE 2 Paraglider From Florida Powered Paragliding:
MEET THE CORE 2: Velocity Paragliders USA is excited to officially announce the NEW 2021 Core 2 Paraglider! After many months of testing and feedback from Pilots across the nation, production of this new beginner / intermediate SEMI-REFLEX glider has begun. Call us to order your Velocity Core 2 today! (Custom logo gliders for business/personal advertisement available – contact us for details!)
THE “CORE 2” PURPOSE: Velocity Paragliders – a division of BlackHawk – has seen tremendous success over the years with our “Edge” & “Core 1” beginner paragliders. The Schools and Pilots around the world who have loved the Edge / Core 1 are going to be blown away by the design of the all-new Velocity Core 2. 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: The Core 2 was designed with quality and performance in mind with every single step of the construction process. The Core 2 features Delron Battens in the leading edge for optimal durability and shape-retention. It also comes with Delron Reinforcement Rods in the trailing-edge. These reinforcements aid in providing the best “Modern Aerodynamic Profile.” We’ve also added “Smart Nose Technology” through an intake (SIMILAR TO “SHARK-NOSE”). 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 2: Boasting an incredible 9:1 glide ratio, the efficiency of the Core 2 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 2 is one of Velocity’s “easiest kiting gliders ever produced” due to the features mentioned and will become a favorite among Schools or those just getting into the sport. The Core is suitable for Beginners and will easily accommodate Intermediate Pilots who want to push the limits of their skills. This glider will take you from the basement to the ceiling of the second story with ease. Beautiful design, unmatched performance, and extreme durability… Now THAT’S getting 2 the “Core” of the sport and everything that Velocity Paragliders USA stands for.
DELRON REINFORCEMENT RODS: The leading edge of the Velocity Core 2 Paraglider is reinforced by the highest-quality Delron Rods. DRR Technology helps the glider maintain its aerodynamic shape under the stresses of flight. We’ve put special attention into the design and placement of these rods to maximize the glider’s performance, longevity, and efficiency.
SMART NOSE TECHNOLOGY: This is a new addition to the Velocity Core Paraglider. Smart-Nose Technology helps reduce glider drag along the leading edge. This not only enhances the glide-ratio… It also has the potential to increase glider performance while thermaling. SNT increases the glider’s resistance to stalling under low speeds. It’s the perfect addition to our Industry-leading line of Velocity Core Paragliders!
DELRON TRAILING-EDGE REINFORCEMENT RODS :We’ve also put our attention into reinforcing the trailing edge of the glider. Small Delron rods were strategically placed throughout the trailing edge to help the glider maintain a strong Reflex profile. Similar to the leading edge, these rods help maximize the glider’s performance, longevity, and efficiency. This makes the Core 2 one of our most “reinforced” gliders.
DEBRIS EVACUATION POCKET: Dust, dirt, grass, and even small rocks have been known to make their way into the openings of the Paraglider. It’s very important that the glider remain clean for safety, performance, and lifespan. Velocity has made it easier than ever to clean out your glider! It’s as simple as opening a pocket.
LOOP WITHIN A LOOP: We were the FIRST to engineer this “simple fix to a big problem.” Paramotors create “torque” which causes the glider to fly at a slight angle. To compensate for this, we’ve created a simple system. A Loop Within a Loop. The beauty lies not in the simplicity of the design, but in the straight-and-level flight FINALLY achieved.

WILL I GROW OUT OF THIS GLIDER?
This is one of the most commonly asked questions about the Velocity Core 2 Paraglider. The answer is a BIG NO! We’ve spent years working towards the development of a Paraglider that Pilots will not grow out of. This was very tricky because glider technology just wasn’t there yet. Beginners had to own a “beginner glider.” A glider they would eventually grow out of. Gliders aren’t cheap. Velocity has completely eliminated the need to purchase two (or more) gliders. The Velocity Core 2 has all the passive safety features and easy lift characteristics that students need. It also features a simi-Reflex design, allowing Pilots to push the limits of the glider’s performance – if and when they are ready. That’s the BlackHawk & Velocity difference!
