The Griffin is Gin's lightweight mini-paraglider. It offers 16m2 of fast, dynamic fun in a package of just 2.1kg. It's perfect for ridge and coastal soaring, classic hike 'n fly or para-alpinism. If you’re an experienced pilot, you’ll appreciate the Griffin’s combination of speedwing thrills and paraglider energy retention.

A versatile machine

The Griffin has an exceptionally wide certified weight range. Flown in the higher end of the weight range, the wing is truly fast and dynamic and is suitable only for experienced pilots. But flown in the low-end of the weight range, the dynamics are somewhat reduced and the wing is more accessible. 

Light but not extreme

The Griffin is one of the lightest wings in its category, and at only 2.1kg easily fits in a 30-litre daysack! Despite the lightweight, the main and mid-lines are sheathed for ease of use and durability. Easy-to-handle 12mm Kevlar risers are standard, and lightweight Dyneema riser and soft shackles are available as an option.

All-terrain action

Thanks to its compact size and short lines, the Griffin is easy to launch in tricky places and demanding conditions. It has the performance to glide out of tight spots and a good enough sink rate to thermal up when flown at reasonable wing-loadings. Wherever you fly, you will love the precision and general feel of its handling. The Griffin is a real toy, take it out to play!
