Coupe Icare 2016: GIN

Gin Gliders at Coupe Icare 2016

We were delighted to hear some news of planned product releases, as the sudden forced closure of their North Korea factory has surely required attention as they restructure production facilities. Considering their impressive product catalogue it's clear Gin Gliders have the strength to weather the storms. Some exciting new products will be added soon…
