The Yak is the ultimate toy for mountain lovers, an outrageous amount of pure fun packed into a tiny package of just over 2 kilos. Gin Gliders have produced this speedwing drawing on all their knowledge and experience of light weight paragliding.
Take your boots, crampons and hiking poles! And let’s go to play!
Ultra-easy to inflate, this speed glider makes it easy to become airborne, and to land in a wide range of conditions. Its trim range allows you to decrease the glide ratio for a fast morning descent, or to increase it for a spot of afternoon soaring. Even thermalling is possible with the big sizes. Be safe, go fast! Take your boots, crampons and hiking poles! And let’s go to play!
The Yak is supplied with the new Yeti harness in 3 versions:
As a pioneer in lightweight equipment, Sup’Air has applied all its know-how to the development of the LEAF LIGHT. The result is a 30% weight gain on the standard version and one of the lightest gliders in its class. The optimization of design options enabled an improvement of up to 1.5kg* on each size.
*with light risers

EASY ON YOUR BACK
AND IN THE AIR
ITS EXCELLENT TAKE-OFF CHARACTERISTICS AND FORGIVING NATURE ARE IDEAL FOR THE RECENTLY QUALIFIED “HIKE AND FLY” ENTHUSIAST
The Eiko is a perfect expression of Sup’Air’s expertise in lightweight equipment. Thanks to its small packing volume and low weight you will hardly notice it in the rucksack.
Its excellent take-off characteristics and forgiving nature are ideal for the recently qualified “hike and fly” enthusiast or as a second wing for accomplished pilots.
The precise handling and thermalling efficiency allow it to do much more than just float down after a nice walk.
The Eiko offers one of the best ratios between volume/weight/flying weight range in its class and is constructed with the best materials available.
It is EN-B certified across all its weight range.

MAXIMUM PERFORMANCE WITH MINIMAL WEIGHT
The EVEREST is the first climber‘s glider, which was designed for performance. It was designed for the hard alpine usage and for Hike&Fly adventures and convinces mainly with its flying features besides its small pack size. This very light performance wing is one of the lightest paragliders worldwide.

This ultra-lightweight wing is aimed at a multi-sport pilot profile. It delights the casual pilot as well as the ambitious alpine pilot and even provides students with the opportunity to experience Hike & Fly easily.

We are pleased to introduce at Gradient our new high-performance EN C glider ASPEN6. By using the latest knowledge within the field of paragliding construction as well as the sophisticated and well proven Gradient technology (DDsystem, VOsystem, Everlast,…) we have obtained a brand new concept which has shown itself to be amazing starting immediatly from the first moment in the air. With its high performance parameters Aspen6 has a very predictable behavior as well as the sportive and direct handling so typical to Gradient gliders. Aspen6 has a brand new front shape of the canopy and a slightly higher aspect-ratio (compared to Aspen5) with a special wing tip twisting for the lowest possible induced drag. New line layout with uncovered lines for minimal drag together with an aerodynamically clean canopy of 66 cells ensure very high performances in a wide range of speeds. Aspen6 is a pure sport wing designed for pilots with the desire for limitless cross-country flights. Aspen6 has been developed since the begining as a semi light, sportive glider. The R&D team has reached this target perfectly. The weight of Aspen6 in size 26 is 4,65 kg only. This is an amazing result regarding the complexity of this advanced glider design and the materials combination that has been used.

The Yeti 4 is a versatile paraglider, suitable for hike ‘n fly or for thermalling and leisurely XCs. Due to the wide range of sizes, the wing accomodates a wide range of pilots: from beginners and pilots flying less frequently to experienced adventure pilots.
3 riser options:
1) Dyneema w. Soft Links 2) Dyneema w. Screw Gate Links 3) Normal Riser
The Yeti 4 brings comfort, ease and simplicity to lightweight paragliding. The Yeti 4 is a 3-liner and is simple to sort out on the ground.In flight, the turn is responsive and playful, but always co-ordinated and comfortable. Take a Yeti harness, airbag and Yeti rescue — the only things you only need to add are your helmet and sunglasses!
The Yeti 4 has a wide certified weight range. Flown in the mid to lower part of the weight range, low-airtime pilots will discover an easy, well-behaved wing. Flown closer to the top of the range, suitably experienced pilots can enjoy dynamic flying in stronger conditions. The Yeti is an outstanding choice for all pilots who prefer minimal equipment and maximal fun. Try it for yourself and discover love at first flight!
We currently have 1 x 16m Red and 1 x 16m Lime in stock for immediate shipment, other sizes will only take the usual 2-3 weeks.
Fast, Simple & Safe! That's the smallest EN/LTF-B Glider in the world!
The SuSi3 is perfect for the low-level B pilot looking for a forgiving lightweight wing, or for those choosing to operate on the upper side of the weight range, providing the lightest and fastest equipment for extreme mountaineering or high-wind soaring conditions. The extensive weight range offered within the SuSi3 lineup provides you with all the options to choose the right size for whatever your adventure demands. We’ve developed a chart to assist you in choosing the right glider for your application. If you are looking for basic wing behaviour from a low EN-B glider, then choose according to the fields with a green background. Those seeking fun in the blue background with higher loadings will notice the increased trim-speed, requiring greater pilot experience. The glider’s behaviour still remains predictable, and provides greater flying options, such as strong-wind soaring opportunities.
Developed for smooth downhill flights, hike and fly, soaring in gentle to strong winds or pushing terrain flying, the FLAME is our best all-round, multi-use wing for all levels of pilot experience.
The wide range of wing sizes allows you to work your way down from larger Mini Wings to smaller Speedflying Wings, as your experience and skill improves.

LIGHT WEIGHT – FOR ALL YOUR ADVENTURES.
We made the FLAME in a lightweight version for all of your adventures, from mountaineering to holiday trips. The FLAME LIGHT will pack down to a size that will not make you even think twice to add it to your backpack or suit case. Weighing less than 1kg less than the standard versions, we have chosen the perfect strength to weight ratio for all types of missions.
The FLAME LIGHT is modelled on the FLAME which is the latest foot-launch Speedflying wing from Level Wings. Developed for smooth downhill flights, hike and fly, soaring in gentle to strong winds or pushing terrain flying, the FLAME is our best all-round, multi-use wing for all levels of pilot experience.
The wing is also perfect for high altitude mountaineering because of the short line geometry based on Speedflying, giving the wing more structural solidity and easier launch characteristics’ than a typical Mini Wing. This makes it one the best gliders for high peaks or morning hike and fly missions giving confidence throughout the whole flight..
We reduced the weight notably throughout the glider while keeping durability and ease of use at the forefront of the design. A wing that will last longer than your typical “ultralight” gliders and give you more confidence in those rugged and hard to get places, time and time again. Lines are thin but stay sleeved in low parts, and risers stay in clean thin webbing for further security.
The Perfect partner for all your adventures!!!
