Evolutionary technology, revolutionary result. We put bleeding edge competition technology into our trusty high-end EN-B wing, and the result was jaw-dropping: a crystal-clean wing with class-leading performance, security and handling. In ripping 9m/s Spring thermals at Asagiri, even test pilots can feel fear. But if you're on a Sprint Evo, you'll always be asking for more. We call the Sprint Evo "a pure result".

GIN's hallmark has always been a clean, wrinkle-free sail, and the Evo is possibly our cleanest ever. It has this quality not only at trim, but—and this is the revolutionary part—also when braked and accelerated. Cleaner wings fly better all-round. Naturally, glide performance is top-of-class.
And what's more, this has been achieved without needing to increase the aspect ratio or decrease the number of lines. The aspect ratio remains a moderate 5.3 and because the Evo is a true 4-liner, security, handling and accelerated flight characteristics have not been compromised. Advanced technologies such as a new leading edge panel design, the "Rigifoil T", a new gathering system, and new-generation light construction--have produced major improvements.

Test fly the Evo and you'll discover a wing with an unbelievably light, easy take-off with no shooting, remarkably easy co-ordinated handling, superb climbing ability, light and quick acceleration, and high stability at speed. And of course, that jaw-dropping performance.

We defy you not to love it! :^D

Details

> New leading edge panel design produces more lift at lower speeds. The wing inflates with only the gentlest of pulls and climbs better in thermals.

> Introducing the "Rigifoil-T". Flexible plastic re-enforcements inside the trailing edge prevent upward buckling of the profile when the brakes are applied. "Half-ribs" on the trailing edge also improve aerodynamic efficiency.

> Advanced gathering system on the brake lines across the whole trailing edge improves both handling and stability in turbulence.

> A true, no-gimmick 4-liner, logical for a wing of this aspect ratio. Especially during accelerated flight, the true profile of the wing is conserved, in contrast to the case with "hybrid 3-liners", where the upper "D" lines end up shorter than they should be. A true 4-liner also has better security in wild, extreme situations and a better overall feel.

> New generation features: lighter internal construction, lighter leading edge with extended reinforcements, unsheathed upper lines and thin Kevlar risers.

Gin Sprint Evo (PAST MODEL) Reviews

I am impressed. I'm in love. I'm sold on this very special wing! on 15/06/2011
  • Star Rating
Given the pedigree, there can be no doubt that the Gin Sprint Evo is truly exceptional amongst the latest in the new breed of EN B paragliders that have recently appeared on the very competitive market.

Having really enjoyed a Gradient Delite for the last few years, I decided it was time to move on and took the opportunity to test fly the new Gin Sprint Evo through Flybubble.

When considering a new wing, I find myself looking for something just that bit different. It’s not that I want to stand out but much more a matter of wanting something a little bit extra and a little bit special. The Gin Sprint Evo is just that! This glider is in a class of it’s own and it really wants to fly.

On launch, in the lightest of breezes, this glider is remarkably easy to inflate. In stronger conditions, the Gin Sprint Evo behaves itself well, sitting on the ground without any flutter. For me, the launching of a glider is one of the most critical issues and of course how it actually flies is another. The Sprint Evo does both impeccably.

In the air, this glider flies beautifully. It’s a sensitive glider and the valuable feedback it provides leads to very rewarding flying. It is light on the brakes, it turns with precision and you really ‘feel’ all the glider has to tell. On glide, this wing loses precious little height, on bar this glider more than keeps up with the Jones’s, sprinting where you need go and when climbing in a thermal this glider soon delivers you to the top of the stack, which is the best place to be!

I’ve only flown the Sprint Evo three times, I’ve out-climbed a few hot shots, I’ve managed a short XC, I’ve flown it in light conditions and I’ve flown it on the breezy side. I am impressed. I’m in love. I’m sold on this very special wing and I can safely say I’m in for a treat!
