GIN Yak Speed Flying - the ultra-light speed flying glider

The Yak is the ultimate toy for mountain lovers, an outrageous amount of pure fun packed into a tiny package of just over 2 kilos. Gin Gliders have produced this speedwing drawing on all their knowledge and experience of light weight paragliding.

The GIN Yak Speed Flyers are extremely easy to fill and he takes you quickly into the air. In flight, this will allow you speedglider play with the terrain, Soares with the larger ones, or even turn in the thermal. It is up to you in order to play.

Its trim range allows you to decrease the glide ratio for a fast morning descent, or to increase it for a spot of afternoon soaring. Even thermalling is possible with the big sizes. Be safe, go fast!

The Yak is delivered with the new Yeti harness in two versions:
- wing + ultra-light Yeti bag (40L)
- wing + ultra-light Yeti convertible harness/bag (40L)
- wing + ultra-light Yeti harness & GIN Alpine bag (50L)
