Gin Gliders ::: Yeti Rescue – Lightweight doesn’t have to mean small size!
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 medium size parachute weighs only 1.5 kg, yet it offers a surface area of 35 m2 and a certified sink rate of 5 m/sec., at a maximum weight in flight of 100kg.
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.
The Yeti Rescue is delivered complete with inner deployment bag, ready to go into your harness.
