Gin - Nano 06




Speed Flying is a new winter flying sport created by paraglider pilots and skydivers looking for a new sensation and to create a link between gliding by ski and gliding through the air. For a few years, pioneers have used skydiving parachutes or modified kites.
Linking the flight of a glider with the turn of your skis adds a new dimension to the descent from a mountain! It’s an exhilarating sport which will excite and fascinate both participants and spectators.

This new sport has taken the slope by storm, quickly attracting more and more enthusiasts as the buzz of excitement sweeps across Europe! First in France, where Speed Flying was born, but now also in Switzerland and Austria with Italy and Germany not far behind.
Gin Gliders decided early on to be the first brand to create a wing specially designed for Speed Flying.

That wing is ready, we call it: NANO.

NANO is a glider specifically adapted to the practice of this new sport. Simple and easy to use, NANO is available in 4 sizes: 10m2, 12m2, 13m2 and 14m2. Pick your size according to weight and more importantly experience. The smaller the glider the faster you go...

The 13m2 and 14 m2 are for light or heavy beginners and intermediates.
The 12 m2 needs to be flown by very experienced pilots with a very good and precise level of control.
The 10 m2 is dedicated to the best expert pilots only, and is currently only available for the GIN Team Speed Flying pilots.

Experts flying the 10m will be able fly at well over 100km/h!!!

Novices will be flying at more like 35-70km/h. These gliders have a trim system to speed up or slow down flight. They are very easy to launch, extremely solid in flight and responsive to your input.

Speed Flying is an exhilarating experience that should be practised with care and in a carefully chosen environment.

The Gin Nano is sold complete with glider, a convertible harness/rucksack and carabiners.

Discover freedom with the Nano, the first Speed Flying glider created by GIN !

nano 14

the nano is a cool wing, which you can use in summer and winter. I find the 14 easy for launch and land also by foot. A good wing to play around
