Compact in the air...

Thanks to its new shape and arch, the wing is agile in turns while remaining very stable in roll. It is compact and well balanced in the air in all conditions. The lines are a carefully chosen mix of sheathed lines on the low and intermediate sections and unsheathed lines on the high sections.

... and on the ground

No detail has been overlooked to reduce weight and folding volume. Nickel titanium (Nitinol) rods have been used instead of plastics, and trailing edge and leading edge reinforcements have been removed or replaced with 5mm lightweight mylar hemmed tapes wherever possible. The internal structure has been optimised to reduce weight by precisely selecting the number of line attachment points. The result? A smaller, more compact and lighter bag, so you can move around without constraints.

First-class heating

Some mountain sails leave a lot to be desired when it comes to their thermal performance. This is not the case with the Yeti 6. The planform, aerodynamic profile, canopy, canopy tension and swept-back wingtips all work together to promote flat, efficient turning behaviour. The Yeti 6 can be used for much more than just flying down the mountain!

Newcomers welcome

The Yeti 6's handling has been adjusted and fine-tuned to suit everyone, even newcomers to the world of free flight. The aim was to have a more damped feel than its predecessor, while still being fun enough for more experienced mountain pilots. The brake travel is long and progressive, but the feel is direct, and there's no tendency to go into a stall if the pilot inadvertently pulls too hard on the brakes. It's a pleasure to fly the Yeti 6 and pilots who are moving towards walk & fly don't need to look any further for their wing after school.

High wing loading, no problem

The special feature of the Yeti 6 is not only that it offers an incredibly wide range of flyable wing loads, but above all that it retains unrivalled stability throughout this range. EN A certification has been achieved even at high wing loads thanks to the wing's inherent stability in all axes.

Forgiving take-off behaviour

With its profile, the Yeti 6 stabilises quickly overhead, hangs with load and even provides a little forward momentum when taking off in light winds. In stronger winds, the wing behaves just as well, doesn't shoot and doesn't hang back. Whatever your skill level and whatever the terrain, the Yeti 6 will ensure you have a successful launch.

Yeti compress folding bag

A specially designed compression bag is available as an option for the Yeti 6. Yeti Compress folds 5 times, ensuring the most compact volume possible and a perfect fit in your hiking rucksack.

x-lite 40l backpack

This 40-litre rucksack is perfectly suited to carrying your Yeti 6 folded into the Yeti compress. Packed with essential mountaineering equipment such as ice axe holders, ski racks, pole holders and flask pockets, the X-lite rucksack is designed for mountain adventures.

Compatibility of the GIN Yéti 6 with harnesses :

The Yeti 6 is compatible with 2 types of harness: Yeti / Switch type harnesses with or without separate leg straps, or Verso / Gingo type harnesses with planchette and classic ABS. However, please note that flight characteristics differ according to the type of harness chosen. Separate leg harnesses require a different flying technique and care should be taken when switching from a board harness to a separate leg harness. The Switch harness with non-separated leg straps is a very good alternative to the tray/leg straps transition. In addition, plate harnesses used at high (extended) wing loads require more active piloting skills than leg harnesses. If in doubt, ask your dealer or a paragliding professional who knows your abilities for advice.
