Genie Race harness video

GIN factory pilot Yasushi Kobayashi ("Taro") shows how to adjust our flagship race harness and highlights some of the new features for 2011.

These new features include a pocket for a SPOT-type emergency GPS tracker and a hook-knife. The hook-knife was personally tested by our Austrian partner, soon after delivery. He managed to use it TWICE in a single flight--firstly to cut his canopy lines after having thrown his rescue parachute and secondly, to cut away his reserve to prevent a dragging after landing. Although these devices are a last resort and should never be relied on, they could make a critical difference in extreme circumstances.
