Gin Gliders Genie Race 3 harness
RRP: £1599.00Price: £1599.00
The Genie Race 3 is the ultimate harness for competition and committed XC pilots who demand the highest standards of aerodynamic efficiency, comfort and safety.
The Genie Race was the first harness to use the Aerocone Inflatable Fairing (AIF) system, and has long been the choice of many of the world's top pilots. This latest version features further improvements in aerodynamic efficiency, comfort and safety. It's the most technically advanced and sophisticated harness we've ever built.
This video shows the main features and correct adjustment of the Genie Race:
The new low-drag profile was designed in consultation with Professor Adrian Thomas of the University of Oxford. The shape is inspired by F1 racing cars, with every aspect being optimized. A new low-drag nose design cuts through the air, turbulent airflow around the pilot's head and shoulders is minimised, and the new AIF system provides the cleanest possible trailing edge. Medical-grade titanium wire was added for better aerocone inflation and shape retention and a new, low-drag neoprene fabric has been used for the cocoon. Extensive prototyping and flight testing has resulted in a smooth finish we are proud of.
Truly no expense was spared in the pursuit of maximum flying performance.
Comfort and convenience
The seat has a more ergonomic shape to help the pilot achieve the most comfortable and efficient flying position, and the new cocoon structure adds increased support to the legs in flight. A long period of testing by GIN Team pilots in competitions has resulted in the most convenient placement of options for instruments and for storage of other personal effects.
The Genie Race 3 can be flown with either one or two rescues depending on the option chosen (Front rescue deck or flight deck). Using the front rescue deck for the 2nd rescue provides the option to deploy on either side, and the front position is the best position in the event of a deployment under conditions of high G forces.
The front rescue deck includes a removeable instrument panel and 5L ballast container, the flight deck has a removeable instrument panel and a 10L ballast container.
