A versatile machine

  • The Griffin “d” has an exceptionally wide weight range. Flown in the higher end of the weight range, the wing feels fast and dynamic and is suitable only for experienced pilots. But flown in the low-end of the weight range, the dynamics are somewhat reduced and the wing is more accessible.

Light but not extreme

  • The Griffin “d” is one of the lightest wings in its category, and at around only 3kg easily fits in a 30 litre daysack! Despite the light weight, the main and mid- lines are sheathed for ease of use and durability. Easy-to-handle 12mm Kevlar risers are standard, and lightweight Dyneema riser and soft shackles are available as an option.

All-terrain action

Thanks to its compact size and short lines, the Griffin “d” is easy to launch in tricky places and demanding conditions. It has the performance to glide out of tight spots and a good enough sink rate to thermal up when flown at reasonable wing-loadings. Wherever you fly, you will love the precision and general feel of its handling. The Griffin “d” is a real toy, take it out to play!
