Gin Yeti UL: "planar rescue"

The Yeti UL offers maximum safety and performance in the smallest package.

It's the lightest and most compact rescue in Gin's range, ideal for hike ’n fly.

What is a planar rescue?

A planar rescue is a new concept of rescue developed in-house by Gin Gliders, made possible by their new anti-billow rib technology. Lines are attached to triangular ribs deployed in a cross shape. This greatly reduces the billow of the canopy and produces an almost flat upper surface. As a consequence, the projected area is increased by 30%. This means excellent sink rates are obtainable with a lower flat area and packing volume. Overall, the efficiency of this new system is the best gin have ever experienced.

Stable descent with no drifting

Gin Yeti UL Stable Descent

During the development, Gin took extra care to optimise air channelling to ensure no drifting of the rescue during descent. As the basic canopy shape is still square, the descent is notably stable.

Rapid and smooth opening

The design of the canopy profile, the packing procedure and the lightweight fabric all contribute toward excellent opening characteristics.

Yeti UL packing instructions

The new hook-and-loop fastener sleeve packing tool (2:40 in the packing manual video) included with the reserve is a new and great idea, especially if you're packing on your own.
