Yeti Cross Reserve
LIGHT SQUARE RESCUE
The Yeti Cross is a lightweight, square-type rescue parachute developed by Gin Gliders. It offers a stable descent with excellent sink rate and opening characteristics.
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.
