GIN Gliders – Griffin “d”  Mini Paraglider

The Griffin “d” is a custom spec version of the standard Griffin. It’s for pilots flying in tougher terrain or in coastal areas who prioritise durability over weight.

The canopy fabric is Dominico 30D fabric, which offers excellent durability and value. Please note that the standard Griffin certification is not applicable to the Griffin “d” due to the change of fabric. Pilots who require a certified wing should choose the standard Griffin.

Available in three sizes 14, 16 and 18m2. It’s perfect for ridge and coastal soaring, classic hike ‘n fly or para-alpinism. If you’re an experienced pilot, you’ll appreciate the Griffin’s combination of speedwing thrills and paraglider efficiency and energy retention.

A versatile machine

The Griffin “d” has an exceptionally wide weight range. Flown in the higher end of the weight range, the wing feels fast and dynamic and is suitable only for experienced pilots. But flown in the low-end of the weight range, the dynamics are somewhat reduced and the wing is more accessible.

Light but not extreme

The Griffin “d” is one of the lightest wings in its category, and at around only 3kg easily fits in a 30 litre daysack! Despite the light weight, the main and mid- lines are sheathed for ease of use and durability. Easy-to-handle 12mm Kevlar risers are standard, and lightweight Dyneema riser and soft shackles are available as an option.

All-terrain action

Thanks to its compact size and short lines, the Griffin “d” is easy to launch in tricky places and demanding conditions. It has the performance to glide out of tight spots and a good enough sink rate to thermal up when flown at reasonable wing-loadings. Wherever you fly, you will love the precision and general feel of its handling. The Griffin “d” is a real toy, take it out to play!
