Feeling adventurous? How about crazy, or even Monday-morning kind of suicidal for that matter? If you checked ‘yes’ to any of those, then the Gin Boomerang 8 paraglider may just be your ticket!
Capable of speeds in excess of 30km/h (that’s 18mph for you Imperialists), the 2-line Boomerang 8 excels at stability, climbing capability, ease-of-use, and comfort. Compared to older paragliders, including prototypes for the Boomerang, this one’s a breeze to launch, handles and climbs better (and with more gusto) thanks to improved aerodynamics, and boasts a larger range of speeds. And with its modern “edge panel” design, Kevlar-constructed race risers and lines, and second-to-none in quality sail, hardly anyone besides the most hardcore paraglider could possibly desire more from his aircraft.
Still not convinced? Take it from Swiss professional paraglider Michael Sigel, the badass who sailed to 1st-place victory in the first task of the 2011 Paragliding World Cup in Colombia piloting a–you guessed it–Boomerang 8!
