Despite the light weight, the Yeti is a true paraglider.

Yeti Mountain Wing - 500g lighter, tons more fun!

Updated with new-generation technology, the Yeti has even better launch characteristics and into-wind glide. On Manaslu at 8000m or on a weekend hike with friends in your local mountains, you need a wing that makes flying as easy and enjoyable as it could possibly be: the Yeti.

With a new lighter internal construction and modern leading edge with plastic re-enforcements, there is less weight to carry and the wing is even more compact. But perhaps even better is the way the new Yeti flies. Inflation, take-off, handling, speed, glide ratio and into-wind performance have all been improved. 

The Yeti is available in 6 sizes (catering for a huge weight range of 50-120kg weight in flight). The 19m2 weighs only 2.5kg and can be used either by light pilots or by suitably experienced pilots as a top-performing mini-glider. 

Despite the light weight, the Yeti is a true paraglider. The weight reductions achieved in this generation have led to an even better feeling in thermals and performance on glide, especially into a headwind. It’s so good that you probably won’t even need an “XC wing”. 

Now in its 3rd generation, the Yeti has been a reference glider in its class since 2004. In extreme conditions, it’s a wing you can trust, and in more leisurely situations it’s pure fun.

Details

  • Over 500g lighter* than the Yeti 08, already one of the lightest gliders in its class
  • Lighter leading edge with plastic re-enforcements
  • Lighter internal construction with more cross-ports
  • Wide range of 6 sizes, for weights of 50kg to 120kg
  • Only 2.5kg for the 19m2 size - probably the lightest glider on the market relative to its performance
  • Loops on top surface to attach snow tabs to hold the wing in place on steep snow-covered slopes
  • Dedicated manufacturing process: reduced seam allowance saves weight and each wing is made by a single person

Package Options

  • Wing only; supplied with lightweight rucsack
  • Gin Yeti wing + Gin Yeti Ultralight harness + Gin Yeti Alpine Bag (50L)
  • Gin Yeti wing + Gin Yeti Convertible harness/rucsack + Gin Yeti Alpine Bag (50L)
