The new GIN Yeti rescue parachute is—like its competitors—ultra-light and ultra-compact, but it offers 40% more surface area.

The medium size 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 100 kg.

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. 

  • Certified EN-12491.
  • The Yeti Rescue is delivered with inner bag.
