Gin Fuse – Tandem wing
The Fuse contains the same EPT (Equalized Pressure Technology) that’s at the heart of Gin’s XC wing, the Carrera. EPT means a better launch, a better landing and a better flight all-round! The Fuse is both reliable and efficient for commercial use, yet makes no compromises when flown for pure pleasure.
Effortless inflation and take-off
The Fuse is easy to manage on the ground and inflates smoothly and evenly in all flyable conditions. And because the Fuse profile produces a lot of lift at low airspeeds, you’ll get airbourne without a fuss—even if your passenger doesn’t move as enthusiastically as you would wish!
Agile, well-balanced handling
The Fuse reacts to your control inputs with speed and precision and goes exactly where you put it. The wing gives you just the right amount of feedback, so your passenger stays comfortable and you easily find lift and stay in thermals. Or, if you prefer to land sooner, the agility of the wing means that you can still have some fun on your way down!
The Fuse has excellent roll response even at lower speeds, ideal on tight landing approaches. Near minimum speed, the sink rate increases significantly and—in appropriate conditions—you can use this behaviour to your advantage during the last few metres before touchdown. Despite this, the wing’s energy retention is good and you can still flare with authority.
Wide real-world weight range
The Fuse has a wide useable weight range—you can fly at maximum weight, minimum weight and everywhere in between. The Fuse comfortably covers most sizes of humans and even some pets!
All these characteristics—as a result of EPT—combine to give you a safety margin and field of use that’s wider than ever before.
- Optimized airfoil with Equalized Pressure Technology (EPT) for stability, handling and performance
- Thinner profile improves take-off and reduces material weight
- Line and riser layout optimized for big ears (large area of A3 and split A-riser)
- Clamp cleat system to lock big ears in place
- Long trimmers (11cm) enable greater penetration, for example in strong valley winds. The slightly negative and large positive trimmers allows you to adjust the speed over the whole weight range.
