The Diva 2 is out to get what she wants, and she wants to win! We unashamedly admit we designed her to beat the best of the competition. That bar is way high and ever moving, and the Diva 2 has been a few years in development. She’s a product of the BGD Performance Quest project, which has involved huge amounts of numerical analysis and exploration of new ideas from our young R&D team. The computers have been smoking! Though the project and the quest for more performance will never end, we are confident the Diva 2 is ready to stand up against the competition and set a benchmark in her class.

We have worked very hard to maximise the performance of the small size Diva 2. Through a dedicated load test and months of fine-tuning and trimming, with our R&D team and also in numerous competitions, we made sure that our test pilot Tyr Goldsmith, who is only 60kg, would fly a very competitive glider, therefore reducing the differences between light and heavy pilots.

The Diva 2 has fast, responsive handling, a high top speed, excellent glide and stability at all speeds. On bar, the B riser pressure is very light, a testament to the high stability and giving it its unique feeling – after a few hours, you will not want to go back! This effect has been achieved by maximising the amount of ‘reflex’ in the shape of the aerofoil. It means you can be really confident to push full bar even in difficult situations.

While the Diva 2 remains relatively easy to fly, she is designed for experienced pilots with the glider-handling skills to match a fast and high-performance wing.

BGD Feedback

Gliders that talk are safer. Safer gliders make pilots perform better. Better performing pilots fly further. Further flying pilots are happier pilots. BGD Feedback produces happier pilots!


An all-out 2-liner performance machine, the Diva 2 has winning DNA and EN-D safety. Made for competition pilots and big distance hunters, she’s very fast and stable, with exceptional glide performance.

Designer’s notes

The Diva 2 likes to be noticed in a crowd. Her fashion choice is bright and bold, and her silhouette stands out with her high arc and short lines. Short lines not only reduce parasitic drag, but give the pilot a really close, connected feel to the wing.

She’s fast and racy, with a full 20cm range on the accelerator. This incredible speed range has been made possible thanks to the unprecedented level of pitch stability as a result of the short-line design and reflex aerofoils.

You can rely on the Diva 2 to remain calm in a crisis. Her behaviour when taken outside of the normal flight envelope is exemplary. After asymmetric collapses, even accelerated, she only turns gently. Stalls are easily controllable and cravats rare. We’ve flown lots of spiral dives, and the Diva 2 recovers without input from even the deepest dives.
