The Genie Lite 2 is for sport and XC pilots who want a light cocoon harness with all the essential features and no compromises in comfort.
Comfortable and aerodynamic
Drawing on our technology from the Genie Race 3, the Genie Lite 2 has been designed for maximum XC comfort. The back of the harness is robust, and contours and supports the back in all the right places thanks to the 3D shaping. A removable lumbar support can be adjusted to give the perfect fit. Much time was spent in development to make the profile as clean and wrinkle-free as possible.
The Yeti 4 is a versatile paraglider, suitable for hike ‘n fly or for thermalling and leisurely XCs. Due to the wide range of sizes, the wing accomodates a wide range of pilots: from beginners and pilots flying less frequently to experienced adventure pilots.
Designed for simplicity
The Yeti 4 brings comfort, ease and simplicity to lightweight paragliding.
The Yeti 4 is a 3-liner and is simple to sort out on the ground. It inflates easily and evenly, even when the terrain or conditions are less than ideal. The low stall speed gets you airbourne quickly and provides a good safety margin for landings. In flight, the turn is responsive and playful, but always co-ordinated and comfortable.
The Yeti 4 is part of a complete range of lightweight equipment that gives you everything you need to enjoy beautiful flights in stunning scenery. Take a Yeti harness, airbag and Yeti rescue — the only things you only need to add are your helmet and sunglasses!
The Gingo Airlite is a high quality versatile airbag harness with seat plate and underseat rescue container. Suitable for beginners, leisure and XC pilots, the Gingo Airlite offers an ideal blend of security, comfort and convenience. One of the lightest harnesses of its type, the compact and lightweight package weighs around 3.5kg.
The new Gingo Airlite features an improved airbag offering excellent shock protection (tested under 20G) due to an advanced valve system. The airbag also has a pre-inflation system for safer launches. A foam "mini-mousse" ensures that the airbag is at least partially inflated at all times, even during reverse take-offs.
The Genie X-Alps harness is an ultra-light cocoon harness aimed at XC adventure and hike 'n fly pilots, or regular XC pilots who simply wish to fly in comfort and travel light.

The Genie X-Alps is constructed from a high-strength Dyneema ripstop fabric and features a substantial 14cm moussebag and an integrated front rescue container / flight deck. It's available in 6 sizes, ensuring optimum fit and simple adjustment.
This is a 5 1/2 day XC course for PG 2 pilots with some thermalling and / or XC experience. Ideally, you have done a Wanaka or Bright course with us previously or have similar experience. This will be a fantastic opportunity to improve your XC flying and clock up some mileage. If you are keen, you would be perfectly prepared to do the NZ Nationals from the same site the week after. The Nationals start on Monday 8th February and run to the 14th.
Reuben has flown in Manilla quite a bit and knows the site and the conditions well.
