The Carrera is a performance wing that offers sporty handling and real-world performance in a highly accessible package.
Who is it for?
Due to advances in technology, the Carrera has a broad appeal. It's a great choice for your second wing and is perfect for pilots entering the XC/thermal arena. The Carrera replaces the Tribe (EN C) in Gin's paraglider range.
Equalized Pressure Technology (EPT) from the Boomerang 9 and Atlas
The Carrera shares its DNA with both the Boomerang 9 (competition class) and the Atlas (easy intermediate class). EPT, our own numerical method of calculating the best possible airfoil parameters for any given profile, has led to improvements in inflation/re-inflation behavior, climb, and stability in turbulence and at speed. As a result, we have been able to increase performance by increasing the aspect ratio of the wing, but without sacrificing handling and stability. For a wide range of suitably experienced pilots, we believe the Carrera will hit the "sweet spot", combining performance, handling and safety in a compact and sporty package.
Everything about the Carrera is designed with maximum efficiency in mind. Attention to detail during design and manufacture has resulted in an exceptionally clean sail. The wing inflates with the gentlest of pulls and settles above the head with the minimum of pilot input. The handling is precise and progressive with a "gentle-but-firm" feel, ideal for long thermalling flights. The wing gives informative feedback in thermals and transitions, helping you pick the best lines. Yet at the same time, it damps out turbulence very effectively, allowing you to concentrate on your next move. Acceleration is smooth and progressive due in part to split A and C risers, helping you glide to the next thermal as efficiently as possible.
Designed for true performance
Compared to other wings of similar performance, the Carrera offers an extra safety margin when conditions become challenging. So you never need miss anything the day has to offer. With the Carrera, our goal was to create a wing in a class of its own.
