The Gin Explorer is a comfortable, lightweight wing for intermediate XC pilots. The turning is precise and responsive making thermaling a joy. The pitch is dampened and forgiving, the Explorer wants to stay above your head, which also makes ground handling easy.
The Explorer is made for comfortable high speed gliding during cross country flying. Direct C-riser control works very well and the lack of uneccessary C handles keeps everything simple and lightweight.
Naturally, the Explorer is light, at under 4kg for the M size. In fact, it’s one of the lightest wings in its category, as a result of optimisation of the internal structure and the careful selection of canopy and line materials. The wide range of sizes and extended weight range offers flexibility in sizing choice according to your preferred wing loading.
Extended weight range
Even when highly loaded, the Explorer shows good performance and excellent recovery characteristics. For this reason, we decided to certify the wing with a +5kg extended weight range for more experienced pilots who may sometimes want to fly with a higher wing loading. For general flying, the Explorer is best flown within the normal weight range according to your preference.
