Gin Switch 2 *NEW* Reversible Harness (Arrival Mid May)
The Switch 2 is a reversible airbag harness with split legs and underseat rescue container. It’s a multi-purpose tool that’s simple to use and to adjust to fit all sizes. At just 2.4 kg, it’s light and compact without compromising on durability.
The Switch 2 knows no boundaries — it’s suitable for everyday, hike ‘n fly, schooling, tandem passengers, mini-wings and travelling. It has full safety features and is comfortable enough to fly all day with.
GEOMETRY: ABS X SPLIT LEGS
The innovative geometry of the Switch 2 combines the advantages of split legs with those of a seat plate. Split legs allow for compact storage, manoeuvrability on take-off and make it simple to get seated in the harness once airborne. Whilst traditional split legs geometries require a different piloting technique due to the independent movement of the legs, this is not the case with the Switch 2. As the leg supports are connected, the harness naturally damps the movements of the air. Even beginners will feel equally at home with the Switch 2 as with a traditional seat plate harness.
PREMIUM TRIPLE LOCK BUCKLES
The Edelrid triple lock buckle is a new premium buckle that’s simple to open and close, yet is highly secure. Even if the release button is accidentally pressed, the snap fastener remains hooked into the
frame, making it “semi-automatic”. The load bearing elements are made of a KTL-coated high-strength steel alloy, and the plastic case and snap fasteners are made of an impact-resistant, glass fibre reinforced polyamide.
ONE SIZE FITS ALL
The Switch 2 is simple to adjust for all pilot sizes. This makes it ideal for use with students in a school or tandem passengers.
MINIMUM WEIGHT, MAXIMUM DURABILITY
Thanks to lighter but more durable materials and a more efficient construction, we have achieved a low weight whilst retaining an excellent level of durability. The main body of the harness is made from a new 70D mélange — a light, durable nylon/polyester fabric that also maintains its cosmetic appeal even when dusty or scratched.
The underseat rescue incorporates shoulder attachment points. Zipper bridle tunnels for the rescue bridles offer superior opening, a
neat appearance and reduced drag.
AIRBAG WITH FRONT INLET
The airbag has a pre-inflation system with titanium and a thin foam layer, guaranteeing full inflation within a few seconds of launch. The air inlet is at the front, enhancing durability and ensuring smooth inflation and a clean profile.
DESIGNED TO BE LIVED WITH
The rucksack features an ergonomic back with foam padding for hike ‘n fly comfort. A unique double-skin feature protects the harness fabric during transportation.
