Kite

Foil Snowkite with a 5th line for safety

Designer Goals

After the earlier snowkites by Gin, the Inuit and Eskimo, the Yeti is the latest Gin model.
The designers strive for optimal stability in gusty conditions for freestylers and lighter wind conditions.
THe 5th line gives the Yeti total depower when the safety is used, when relaunching there is no pressure in the power zone. The Yeti has a simple bridle system.

According to Gin the flying characteristics of the Yeti are smooth and precise. The bar pressue is enough for good feedback, but not that much that your arms get tired during long cross country trips.  The Yeti has good upwind performance and strives to find a balance between comfort and performance.

Gin has been into paragliding for more then 25 years, therefor you can count on high quility materials.  The Yeti is durable, simple and strong.  A kite you can depend on in the mountains.

The size of the bar depends on the size of the kite. The lines are extra strong to prevent damage from the board or the skis.
The Yeti comes with a camelback bag for crosscountry trips (with extra straps for skis, boots or shoes) and also a pocket for you iPhone.
