Gin FUSE: New tandem with EPT

The Fuse is Gin Gliders' new tandem wing for pro tandem pilots—available now.

The Fuse contains the same EPT (Equalized Pressure Technology) that’s at the heart of their XC wing, the Carrera. EPT means a better launch, a better landing and a better flight all-round! The Fuse is both reliable and efficient for commercial use, yet makes no compromises when flown for pure pleasure.

Nova TRITON 2 (EN C)

Nova says that their new TRITON 2 (EN C) is “the highest performing wing we have ever produced. Our goal wasn't just excellent performance in still air – the wing had to set a benchmark with regard to handling, safety and usable performance (gliding in turbulent air). We wanted to produce the ultimate cross-country machine.”

In terms of pilot skill requirement, the TRITON 2 is comparable to its predecessor, the TRITON 1. During certification testing Nova did not use folding lines. Rods are only used in the leading edge. With a flat aspect ratio of 6.4, the TRITON 2 is clearly a high performance wing and is suitable only for very experienced pilots.

Syride SYS’GPS review | SkyWings magazine

Andrew Craig reports on a new departure in flight instruments
As the number, size and complexity of free-flight instruments increases, it's refreshing to find one that goes the other way. Syride's SYS'GPS is much smaller than my old basic vario, but does a lot more.

It fits comfortably in the palm of your hand; more relevantly, hook and loop fastener straps on the back allow you to attach it to your risers, a flight deck, or almost anywhere else. I found that it stayed firmly fixed to the bottom of my risers (it has, of course, a string loop in case the hook and loop fastener comes adrift). It was easy
to read in flight, and didn't interfere with speed bar use.
