The Medium size (max. weight 100 kg) weighs 1.5 kg, has a surface area of 35 m2 and a sink rate of 5 m/sec. We all know that surface area is a key safety feature of a rescue parachute. The lightest size (max. weight 80kg) weighs only 1.25kg. Gin Gliders have chosen to go for lightness but not at the expense of surface area, 2 years of development have been necessary to achieve this technological feat.

Certified EN-12491 / LTF
The Yeti rescue parachute is delivered with its pod.
To mount it in the prone position on your harness, use the light external container and the light rescue Y-risers.



Gin Gliders was founded in 1998 by paraglider designer and competition pilot Gin Seok Song Some of us follow the movement, some of us follow our own path, some of us fly paragliders, some of us fly GIN Gin's philosophy is simple: to design paragliders that he and every other pilot love to fly. This philosophy applies equally to an entry-level wing such as the Bolero, and to the world-renowned competition wing, the Boomerang. No wing is released without Gin's complete satisfaction. Gin has over 20 years experience in designing and manufacturing paragliders and is supported by an equally experienced team, both within the company in Korea and in a worldwide network of distributors and dealers. The "GIN Team" has dominated the Paragliding World Cup every year since 1998 and has enjoyed countless other competitive successes in World Cups, World Championships and National Championships. This high level of expertise provided by dedicated professionals guarantees you the best possible product support and after sales service.
The round rescue parachute has proved its worth since the early days of paragliding. Affordable, compact and easy to pack, it's often the first thing you buy.

How do you choose?

Thanks to its compact size, the round rescue parachute fits all harnesses. It can also be easily fitted into a ventral parachute pocket (also known as a ventral container) for light rando harnesses with leg straps. If you have any doubts about how to install it, don't hesitate to consult the manual, or come and see us directly. We can help you with the initial installation. Like your paraglider, a rescue parachute has different sizes. To optimise its opening, it is recommended to be 15% below its max ptv. CAD that if the max TPV is 100, the ideal is to be at 85kg. Most manufacturers do not take the weight of the glider into account when calculating the total weight of a rescue. So you'll have to take another look at the scales :) Although not compulsory, it is strongly recommended to ensure your safety.

Approval :

All paragliding rescue parachutes are subject to European approval. EN 12491To do this, they have to pass a number of tests: - The opening time must be less than 5s, - The shock on opening must not exceed 15g, - Pendulum stability (observation from the ground of the stabilisation of pendulum movements), a parachute that is too unstable will be readjusted (and in any case, instability increases the sink rate...). - Fall rate: after a minimum fall of 100m, the measurement is taken over the last 30 metres before "ditching" → Max 5.5m/s. To ensure that it opens effectively, manufacturers also recommend that it be re-bound every year. Tutorials are available to help you, but if you're not sure, don't hesitate to call in a professional or a sail inspection centre.
