The new GIN Yeti reserve parachute is—like its competitors, ultra-light and ultra-compact, but, it offers 40% more surface area than most.
This paramotor and light tandem size parachute weighs only 2.6 kg, yet it offers a surface area of over 50m2 and a certified sink rate of 5.2m/sec. at 160kg load, and 5.4m/sec. at a maximum weight in flight of 180kg.
We all know how a large surface area is important for the safety of a rescue parachute.
Gin Gliders’ design brief for this new rescue was lightweight, but without compromising the surface area. 2 years of development and testing were necessary to reach this high standard of technical performance.
