Gin G Lite reserve image GIN G Lite
Price £419 (39)
Price £459 (32)

Developed by GIN, it’s an evolution of our One-G, one of the biggest selling rescue parachutes of all time. Compared to the One-G, the G-Lite offers greater stability and a reduction in weight whilst remaining reliable and cost-effective. The G-Lite is significantly lighter than the comparable size of One-G. Due to improved gore shape generated by 3D design, we could reduce the rescue size without compromising safety and a sink rate.

Price £489 (26)

Price £639 (38)

The Yeti Cross is a lightweight, square-type rescue parachute developed by Gin Gliders. It offers a stable descent with excellent sink rate and opening characteristics.The Yeti Cross very quickly dissipates the pendulum motion typically seen with circular-type rescue parachutes, due to the square shape and strategic placement of the air dispersement vents. A stable, pendulum-free descent is achieved shortly after deployment.

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.

Ozone Angel reserve image OZONE ANGEL
Price £POA (95)
Price £POA (110)
Price £POA (140)

Everyone needs an Angel… even though no one really wants to use theirs. However, the fact is that when the time comes, the most important factors are safety and stability with a low sink rate for a gentle and controlled descent. The Angel 140 is certified to 140kg, meaning that even a pilot with a total in-flight weight of 140kg will have a stable descent of near or less than the tested result of 5.24m/s, and most pilots will have a slower descent with this size. The high stability and low sink rate, coupled with its affordable price and light weight make it a safe and popular choice for pilots of all abilities.
