Gin Rebel: Crossing more of your country and many others…
Technology, like everything else, trickles downhill. However, at Gin Gliders, it flows uphill too. The new LTF 2 Rebel is a testament to this. This new performance glider incorporates the performance technology from the world famous Boomerang competition gliders to the proven safety features of the Bolero series and everything in-between. The result? A glider that truly makes flying cross country easier, safer and more stress free.
The shape and design concept
With an aspect ratio of 5.55, a high number of cells (62) and reduced total line lengths gives the Rebel its high performance.
An optimized trimming of the sail and profiles helps to obtain a well coordinated, homogeneous and secure feeling for a glider of this performance level. The design objective for the Rebel was to create a performance XC glider with state of the art components (high arc, partial diagonals, efficient planform and the Kick Down speed system) with a high level of performance that is also easy to use. High technology, high performance and a high degree of passive safety.
What exactly does “High Performance” mean? A good climb rate; an excellent sink rate; a glider that penetrates easily into a headwind; easily cuts through turbulence; stability and efficiency at trim speed; and a speed system that is easy to push, efficient and safe to use. That’s performance!
When flying the Rebel, you will feel confident in all flight conditions.
The inflation is progressive, easy, stable in pitch and won’t over-shoot the pilot even in strong wind.
When flying cross country we often encounter turbulent patches of air. The Rebel will help you to get through that effortlessly. The wing penetrates through turbulence and the most difficult conditions without a hitch. This type of performance and security will enable you to go further, to concentrate on your next move and not worry about managing the glider. The legendary Gin Gliders direct handling is precise in the thermals and allows you to center up on the core with a minimum of brake action allowing you to achieve the fastest and most efficient climbs.
The Rebel was designed for the pilot that wants to lead out and go further that they ever have before. To go to those places they never have and be confident in doing so. The learning curve on the Rebel is minimal and will have you flying XC quickly. The Rebel is the glider that will expand your horizons and your flights. Once you fly the Rebel, your passion for cross country and flying in general will boost you to a new level.
Finally a real XC Wing for everyone!
- An XC glider that’s user friendly.
