Gin Boomerang X-Alps (PAST MODEL)
Who is it for?
The Boomerang x-alps is aimed at highly advanced vol-biv and adventure pilots. The wing is also suitable for XC and competition pilots who, above all, want a small and lightweight wing.
Equalized Pressure Technology (EPT) from the Boomerang 9, Atlas and Carrera
EPT involves a state-of-the-art numerical simulation method developed with Swiss inventor and engineer Koni Schafroth. By combining Gin's many years of practical experience with the latest computational analysis techniques, EPT has led to significant improvements in performance and behaviour of the wing: better inflation/re-inflation, low speed handling, seeking behaviour, climb rate and stability in turbulence.
The new EPT airfoil combined with a 3 line concept means that the Boomerang x-alps excels in providing the pilot with readable information. Handling is precise, but smooth and co-ordinated. This translates into an easy-to-fly wing with a climb rate that's second-to-none. Suitably experienced pilots will have no problem thermalling out of tough situations.
All round ease-of-use
The X-Alps demands a wing with all round ease-of-use and the Boomerang x-alps does not disappoint. Take-offs in the widest variety of flyable conditions are possible, and the precise control even at speeds approaching the stall provides an extra safety margin when landing in unforgiving terrain. The wing is comfortable in turbulence and has the glide performance approaching that of today's competition wings.
Built with passion
As official sponsors of the X-Alps ever since the first event in 2003, we have a long track record of committment to lightweight paragliding technology. Throughout the years, lightweight design and production techniques have been our passion. We hope you have as much fun flying the Boomerang x-alps as we did developing it!
