Our goal is to always create products that provide the best possible experience. The drive to make good things better and better things excellent keeps our passion alive. This is what we believe in and this is how Gii 4 was designed. Good became better and better became the best.
Gii 4 is a harness with an integrated airbag designed primarily for paragliding schools and beginner pilots. Because of its weight and compactness is appreciated for ground handling and travelling. Once in the air, it gives clear responsivity during flight. All those attributes will make Gii 4 popular even amongst experienced pilots. Gii 4 is the perfect initial harness, greatly enhancing playtime and allowing wider safety margins while improving your paragliding skills.
The main distinctive features are:
Our strap system features the popular "4S" system (SKY SAFETY STRAP SYSTEM) to ensure safety and comfort provided by the "one loop only" system.
The strap system has been redesigned to include 30 mm straps to easily fit our new main carabiners.
The current strap was custom designed and manufactured for our harness - we did not want to compromise and when there is nothing to choose from on the market, we have to design it ourselves. The strap is robust, suitable for heavy stitching using either bar tack or automated stitching, features well-balanced elasticity and works well with the buckles we use.
The back part has been modified to feature a new shape. We listened carefully and know how some pilots need more space in the main pocket
The shoulder straps have been made longer to improve ground handling and add comfort for ground training and early days of take-offs and landings at the training field
The new harness is designed with separate leg straps for added comfort. Male pilots will especially appreciate this new feature, but the easy-to-get-into harness will certainly be favoured by female pilots, as well.
Gii 4 has an efficient LTF certified airbag.
Leg straps were designed for easier integration of the harness board.
Gii 4 features an integrated radio pocket and is also camelback ready.
Specially designed covers for the speed system eliminate the risk of messing up with the reserve handle.
Adjustable container and reserve handle can be switched to the other side for left-handed pilots.
The geometry of the harness has not been changed. The harness itself remains comfortable, practical, easy to adjust, very stable and still provides flight information from the wing.

Any time we are asked to improve on something that we believe is already pretty good, we start by thinking how. „Impossible”, looks like the first logical answer. Then we brainstorm and ask pilots for feedback and we realize that we can still improve the harness. So, we decided to take every single design element and see how to take it from better to the best (until the next generation, of course).
