GIN Gingo Airlite 4 harness – STABLE, LIGHT, COMPACT – Available from April 2019
The Gingo Airlite is a lightweight airbag harness for beginners and leisure pilots. At under 3kg, it’s one of the lightest, most compact and most aerodynamic harnesses of its type.
The 4th generation Gingo Airlite builds on the success of its predecessor, yet offers significant improvements:
- more stable in all axes
- more precise control of your glider
- easier to get in on take-off
- more aerodynamic and easier to pack due to the thinner profile
the latest high quality durable materials that are also lightweight
While performance is not the main feature of the Gingo Airlite harness, the harness does have improved performance compared to its predecessor as the airbag volume has been reduced (while retaining the same safety rating) and removing the side air intake means less overal drag on the harness.
As usual safety is a priority for Gin Gliders. For the Gingo Airlite 4 the design team developed a sewing technique which is found to be stronger than the traditional ‘bar-tack’ sewing method, this will prolong the life of the harness for longer than ever before.
The Gingo Airlite 4 has achieved a very good drop test result of 20g, with less airbag volume than the Gingo Airlite 3.
The under-seat reserve container with shoulder attachment points offers the best safety for reserve use during a rescue deployment.
The rescue container has been redesigned to aid a more efficient opening and closing sequence especially in higher G situations. The T-lock safety system helps decrease the risk of pilots forgetting to connect the leg straps.
Choosing only the best quality materials, buckles, zippers and state of the art light fabrics. You will notice the difference especially as the weight has been reduced compared to the Gingo Airlite 3.
With a new geometry to distribute the load better between the front and back half of the seat plate the comfort has been improved as well as stability. The Gingo Airlite 4 comes with a seat plate which allows for precise weight-shift and comfort for longer flights.
The Gingo Airlite 4 is suitable for pilots from the training hill to cross country and even hike and fly. The geometry offers improved stability in the turn while also dampening out turbulence to give the pilot a more comfortable feeling.
A new level of stability and precision
A new geometry means that the harness is very stable and reassuring yet allows more precise control of your wing. It offers the perfect balance for the smooth progression of your flying career.
Easy to use
The Gingo Airlite is easier than ever to get into and out of during take-off and landings. It’s easy to manage both on the ground and in the air, and stays comfortable even after many hours in the air.
Safe yet aerodynamic
With the Gingo Airlite 4, we were able to reduce the volume of the profile without compromising the performance of the airbag. This was achieved thanks to extensive field testing, 3D modelling and our in-house drop test machine. The resulting shape is both more aesthetic and more aerodynamic.
As light and compact as ever
The previous Gingo Airlite was one of the lightest harnesses of it’s kind, and the new version is 500g lighter! The GIN Triplex seat plate has an advanced composite structure which is around 50% lighter than a wooden seat plate yet has greater durability. The outer fabric is light and packable, whilst offering excellent resistance against abrasion and degradation. The highest quality materials are used throughout the harness, guaranteeing a prolonged lifetime of service.
