The Fuse 3 is a tandem paraglider for professionals who demand maximum efficiency, reliability and also flying pleasure.
The Fuse 2 was Gin's most successful tandem ever, and the Fuse 3 builds on this platform. Notable improvements are an enhanced big ears control system and even more durable fabric yet in a lighter package:
innovative big ears system makes it much easier to hold and release or even control with brakes
exclusive new fabric developed by GIN and Myungjin offers outstanding durability with light weight
easy inflation and smoother take-off
minimal shooting in strong conditions
precise and well co-ordinated turn with super light brake pressure
first class “thermal sniffing” ability
great energy retention with trim off, or super-soft, progressive braking with trim neutral
improved real world performance in weak and strong conditions alike
more durable yet lighter canopy fabric
“Trim neutral” position indicator on risers
replaceable trimmer webbing
As with the Fuse 2, the trim settings and wide weight range offer versatility for light pilots and passengers. The wing can also be flown solo.
Building on success
The Fuse 3 retains, and even improves slightly, all the characteristics that made the Fuse 2 so well liked among professional tandem pilots. Easy inflation, great energy retention, useful practical trim settings, precise handling and useful performance in climbing and gliding.
Durable, yet light
A workhorse wing like the Fuse needs to be durable, yet pilots are used to the in-air and on-ground advantages of lighter wings. For this reason, GIN was motivated to develop a new PU-based composite coating fabric in partnership with Korean fabric manufacturer Myungjin. After years of development and over 2 years of field testing, this fabric has proved to be very durable despite a relatively light weight.
Innovative big ears system
Thanks to feedback from various professional tandem pilots in France, the Fuse 3 features a new big ear system on the risers. This makes it much easier and faster to pull and release the big ears. Besides, the pilot can still use the brakes to steer the glider, useful, for example, to control the glide ratio on top landings.
Optimized airfoil with Equalized Pressure Technology (EPT) for stability, handling and performance
Exclusive new fabric developed by GIN and Myungjin offers outstanding durability with light weight
Fully sheathed Edelrid lines for the best compromise of durability and performance
Thin 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.
Easy trimmer operation thanks to pulleys on the riser.
Supplied with 20mm riser (706g). 12mm Kevlar risers (532g) are available as an option.
Supplied with spreader bars (hard, 760g ea.). Supple (soft, 183g ea.) spreaders are available as an option.
Supplied with XXL rucksack
A full range of GIN accessories designed for use with the Fuse are available: harnesses, rescues, etc.
