From rising stars to seasoned veterans...

The Sprint 3 has been designed to hit the "sweet spot" for a majority of pilots. It's undemanding and comfortable to fly, yet sporty enough to be fun. And if you're in the mood to eat up the XC kilometres, you'll find plenty of performance under the gas pedal!

Easy and well-balanced but never dull

The Sprint 3 is a well-balanced wing that inspires confidence. The wing stays neutral above the pilot at all times, whether during take-off or on entering lift. The Sprint 3 has a natural flying character that helps you first find lift and then stay in it. Despite the comfort, the wing is never dull and the turn is direct and lag-free. Long glides are a breeze too, thanks to a useful reserve of speed.

A semi-light wing: the best of both worlds

The Sprint 3 offers all the well-known benefits of a lightweight wing but still remains a durable workhorse – thanks to the 38g/sqm and 32g/sqm fabric and fully sheathed main and mid lines. The weight savings are due to the smart optimisation of the internal structure. A unique trailing edge support, placed over the C attachment points, has allowed the removal of longer reinforcements from the top surface. Nose plastics have been systematically minimized. Cross ports have been trimmed down with laser precision. The result is one lean flying machine: the Sprint 3 tips the scale at just 4.5kg (M).

Details

  • all-new EPT (Equalized Pressure Technology) profile
  • supported trailing edge construction for responsive handling and wrinkle-free upper surface
  • simplified riser for easy take-off and ground-handling
  • 3 line technology (A/B/C main lines)
  • Minimal use of plastic rods for easy and compact packing
  • Profile nose reinforcements with optimised mix of rod materials
  • 12mm riser with lighter Peguet maillons
  • Optimised line selection: sheathed main and mid lines for durability, un-sheathed upper lines for performance and light weight
  • Fabric selected for ideal compromise between durability and light weight: 38g/sqm front top and bottom and 32g/sqm rear top and bottom
  • Efficient speed system with a high maximum speed (for the category of wing)
  • C riser steering
  • Lightweight construction consisting of selected cross port settings for each profile and a smart mix of fabrics for main and internal profiles

Sprint 3 reviews

"I flew the Gin Sprint 3... in strong thermic conditions with a moderate basewind. The air was pretty punchy at times, with a some pilots having sizeable collapses. However, the Sprint 3 felt very solid and reassuring throughout; more like a higher aspect ratio Gin Atlas than a lower aspect Gin Carerra." "The Sprint 3 is very easy to launch: it doesn’t have a tendency to whip up and it doesn’t drop back at all. The lack of roll and pitch makes the launch run easy. Just trot along, and then you’re flying." "In the air, the wing moves as a unified block, with little snaking or jellyfishing.... it generally wants to stay above the pilot, and doesn’t tend to pitch and roll around too much." "The Sprint 3 is very solid at full bar, even through the punchy stuff; other pilots flying next to me were only comfortable using less bar." "The handling of the Spring 3 feels somewhat like the Atlas to me: easy, progressive, reassuring, with firm brake pressure." "Some pilots might find the Sprint 3’s handling a bit too steady for their liking, whilst others will find it comfortably reassuring and love it. I ... found it to be an excellent all-rounder." "Performance feels very good in the XC Class (high-end B, B+). ... it’s not pushing the envelope of B class performance – it’s comfortable and sensibly midfield, a true XC Class wing." "The ratio of performance to pilot demands is excellent, so many pilots will happy they are on it when the going gets rough."

- Carlo Borsattino, Flybubble

"Inflating the wing, I was pleasantly surprised in the way the wing came up... The wing then easily stayed above my head with minimal input." "In the air, the wing moves smoothly into lift with no feeling of excessive pitch. There was no feeling of being ‘jostled about’ in the air. The Sprint 3 gives a very smooth glide." "Entering thermals, once you bank the wing it moves very easily into them. ... the wing feels like it wants to be in the thermal. The wing responds well to small inputs. Weight shift followed by small brake inputs has the wing turning smoothly with no noticeable lag." "... for a pilot looking for a wing with performance in the B range this ticks the boxes."

- John Turczak, SHGC Chief Coach
