PD Spire

Performance Designs - Spire


PD is spreading wings, this time for the new sport of Speedriding & Ground Launching, with the introduction of the Spire.

The first model in a whole new line of ground launching products from PD, the Spire is a very high performance wing designed especially for experts in ground launching or speedriding! Pilots should have plenty of experience under a more docile wing prior to flying a Spire. This wing is not for the novice pilot.

Based on the well known PD Velocity, the Spire utilizes cross-brace technology and ultra-low drag HMA suspension line.

With light riser and toggle pressure, the Spire is fast and responsive, very challenging and yet fun to fly. It will require the full attention of it's experienced pilot at all times!
