Gin Boomerang 7 competition paraglider

Gin Gliders‘ new competition paraglider, the Boomerang 7, is finished, and will be available soon in six sizes. With an aspect ratio of 8.0, Gin say the Boomerang 7 is true to the Boomerang spirit – top performance yet still comfortable to fly.

Luca Donini flew the prototype into third place at the last World Cup Super Final, and Gin say the production model has even better climb performance and stability in turbulence.

The three-line glider features Gin’s Rigifoil reinforcement on the wing section, and a high degree of pitch stability. Leading edge valves are a new safety feature: they open as you push on the speed bar, maintaining pressure at speed and thus meaning the pilot can remain on the bar even in turbulent air.
