Light Tanden - And Much More

The Yeti tandem is an ultralight tandem glider, suitable not just for hike 'n fly adventures, but also for all kinds of flights, especially with family and friends.

  • Smooth inflation in all wind conditions
  • Excellent performance over the entire speed range
  • Super stable even with trim open (EN A rated)
  • Well-damped pitch control in strong conditions
  • Good climbing ability
  • Great passive safety compared to the level of performance

Solo Glider Weight, Tandem Glider Fun

For the new Yeti tandem, we designed and engineered every millimetre of the canopy for maximum lightweight performance. From the choice of materials, internal construction techniques, production methods – every aspect has been optimized. The new Yeti tandem weighs just 5.6kg compared to the 7.2kg of its predecessor.

Not Just For Mountaineers

The lighter sail not only results in even easier inflation and take-off, but also improved in-flight behaviour. The new Yeti tandem is simply better in every way. Besides mountaineering, it’s a great leisure wing too.

No-Stress Launches

Naturally the wing comes up very easily without shooting and is quick to take your weight. The Yeti tandem helps you even when the conditions don’t. High altitudes, light tail winds, crosswinds…the Yeti deals with them all.

Never Miss A Thermal

The turn is precise and brake pressure is light and progressive. The glider sensitively transmits all the pleasureable sensations of flight, yet remains safe and reassuring at all times. With the Yeti tandem, you’ll feel those weak thermals and also have the precise handling to take advantage of them. Just don’t use it for commercial tandems, you won’t want to come down!

Floats Like A Dream

The Yeti tandem has a moderate aspect ratio, but performance is still good. The light fabric feels light – on glide the Yeti seems to simply float.

Lands In Tight Spots

The Yeti tandem flies very well at low speeds. It’s easy to land in very tight areas, even with a high wing loading.

Built To Last

Whilst the durability of a lightweight glider can never match a regular glider, we have used only the best available well-proven lightweight materials, such as Porcher Skytex 27 and 32. With careful use, the Yeti tandem can provide years of enjoyment.

Always Ready For Adventure

The Yeti tandem packs as small as a solo glider. So you can pop it in your car along with your solo wing whenever you go flying. Then if conditions turn out good for tandem, your wing is always ready.

Designer Notes

 

Gin Seok Song shares the design story of the Yeti Tandem:

Gin explains: “Besides hike ‘n fly and commercial tandems, a lot of general pilots simply like to fly tandem for fun, often with family and friends. We wanted to make a very easy wing for these pilots that would be fun to fly and convenient to transport.

Our aim was to make the flying experience as close as possible to that of flying a solo wing. The improved 2nd generation EPT (Equalised Pressure Technology) profile makes take-off easier than ever before. Inflation is effortless and the wing stops above your head without shooting. Getting airbourne is super fast, no need to run a lot. Forward or reverse launches are equally stress-free, just give a gentle pull and off you go.
 

In the air, the wing has a compact feel with soft yet precise handling – you will want to fly for hours and the excellent glide performance means you can really cover some distance. 
 

Longer flights are also much less tiring due to the shorter risers, which mean the pilot’s arms are closer to the brake handles. 
 

Many pilots want to fly with their kids these days so we made sure that the Yeti Tandem flies really well also at lower weights in the weight range. The long 10cm trim also allows a great deal of flexibility to fly comfortably at different wing loadings and in a variety of flying conditions.
 

Using technology trickled down from our other recent wings, we also improved the passive security and this is reflected in the EN A certification.
 

The glider even feels like a solo wing when you transport it. Using lightweight construction techniques and production methods, we were able to achieve a glider weight of just 4.8kg, almost a kilo lighter than its predecessor and more compact than many standard solo wings.”
