We are very pleased that we can present such a well made new model for beginner pilots.
Its extremely easy start, obedience in curves and simple guidance in thermal currents shifted Bobby into wish sector of many company designers or paragliding school owners. Aleksei Rakov and his team has done a first-class job, of which we are very proud in El Speedo.
You can select from four basic colour combinations of BOBBY. The bottom surface cover is white and when viewed from below it produces an interesting rainbow blending of colors.
When the sun is sinking below the horizon
It was already the evening and we drove up a hill for something what one remembers for long. Driving down the slope at the time when the sun is sinking below the horizon clams one’s mind down and puts a person in the feeling of infinity. There is nowhere to hurry, it is enough only to lean out of the seat and be turning in eights. Everybody who has experienced this wants it again. At that time the question is not any more about covering a long track, chasing for thermic streams. It is just about calm in your mind and strong aesthetic experience.
At such a moment, even a high-performing pilot prefers using a parachute with which some other pilots might experience their first flights, the first rising in thermics, the first jumping over.
And this is exactly our new model in the category EN A – BOBBY named after the musician Bobby McFerrin. Listen to his music and come and fly with us…

New profiles and new line scheme along with 3D cut leading edge reinforced with nylon rods offers not only high passive safety that is today in this category of practical obligation, but also very cultured behaviour in problematic situations and, in its category excellent handling and great performance.
And this is an opportunity for pilots looking for a real “peace on board”.
BOBBY is an option, how to enjoy flying even during only occasional recreational flying.
The most up to date technology improving performance and safety would be a weak argument, if the pilot didn’t feel pleasantly and comfortably with our BOBBY paraglider. Several improvements over the previous version serve to this:
The revised steering handles have become more comfortable, new magnetic holds simplify fastening to the risers.
The newly designed speed system on the risers simplifies its use.
A very useful accessory is also a quick-pack, which you can order in the ruscksacks and packs section.
When soaring quietly above a landscape or flying difficult cross county flights in big mountains the El Speedo paragliders surprise pilots by their friendly behaviour and high performance in both thermals and long glides. What design elements are used in El Speedo paragliders constructions?
