The Yeti Cross is a lightweight, symmetric, square-type rescue parachute developed by Gin Gliders. It is easy to repack and offers a stable descent with excellent sink rate and opening characteristics.
The Yeti Cross is an easy to repack, symmetric square emergency parachute that unlike many other square designs, does not rely on any drift or “glide” to gain it’s excellent sink rate.
The Yeti Cross very quickly dissipates the pendulum motion typically seen with circular-type rescue parachutes, due to the square shape and strategic placement of the air dispersement vents. A stable, pendulum-free descent is achieved shortly after deployment.
Excellent sink rate
The unique design of the canopy maximizes the surface area and efficiency. Optimized air channeling decreases the descent rate to well below the certification requirement of 5.5m/s.
Rapid and smooth opening
The Yeti Cross opens rapidly and smoothly, due to the enhancements made to the canopy profile and rescue packing procedure.
