Gin - Fluid [2009]




New in the 2009 GIN speedride range, the FLUID is the glider for very experienced and expert riders.

Caution! Its precision, its wide speed range and its wide glide angle range will greatly expand your concept of speedriding. Feel the ultimate speedride between air and snow with your FLUID!

The FLUID is fast, precise and reactive. It is able to contour the ground on gentle slopes as on very steep ones. The 3 riser system, constantly improved by the GIN Team since 2007, will allow you to trim the glide angle without losing stability and profile qualities.

The FLUID 2009 is delivered complete with the new specially designed 'FREERIDER' convertible harness/rucksack, carabiners, and a stowable, fast-packing bag. This lighter and more compact harness is dedicated to a wild area use-with a sock pocket for powls storage, an avalanche shovel, an ice axe holder, ...
