OUR LIGHTEST AND MOST COMPACT RESCUE EVER

The Yeti UL is a planar rescue, a new type of rescue that offers maximum safety performance in the smallest ever package. It’s our lightest and most compact rescue, ideal for hike ’n fly.

 

Stable descent with no drifting

During the development we 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.

What is a planar rescue?

A planar rescue is a new concept of rescue developed in-house by Gin Gliders, made possible by our 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 we’ve ever experienced.

S+W Verdict:

“Gin finally joins the array of sub 1kg ultralight reserves. But better late than never! Gin always produces a reserve you can rely on, so it’s lightweight shouldn’t reduces your confidence in an emergency!”
