yoti

The Yoti is a mini paraglider designed for the most demanding and challenging air, its compact handling and playful characteristics will make you feel comfortable soaring in strong winds above cliffs on the coast or launching in tricky mountain tops after a good hike.

 

Its shark nose profile and tensioning have been carefully engineered to provide the best combination of collapse resistance, pitch stability and comfort in flight. The risers are equipped with both trimmers and speed system. This combo will give you the option to tune the behaviour of your glider to suit your style.

 

A reflex profile can activated by releasing the trim tabs, which will make the glider dive deeper in turns and it will therefore increase even further the collapse resistance in extreme conditions. The Speed System is another accessory that can come handy if a situation where the glide on speed is needed.

 

With slightly longer lines Yoti’s handling is very playful yet precise. Wing overs, sweeping turns or even thermalling, you can do it all with this little glider without having the need to “adapt” to the mini wing feel as Yoti’s handling is exactly the same as normal paraglider.

 

The fun factor was the key element on the design philosophy of the Yoti, we hope you have as much fun as we have when flying this beautiful glider.

TECHNOLOGY AND FEATURES

Combining the best selection of materials available, we know the Yoti will offer the best relationship between weight and lifetime.

Risers

The Yoti is built with a combination of both trimmers and a speed system.

 

The Speed System can be used in a situation where the combination of extra speed and glide angle is needed. For example: Gliding past sinking air while on XC or gliding to a faraway LZ after the wind has picked up.

 

The Trimmers are an important tool and can be used to adjust and tune the behavior of the glider to suit the day or the flying style. Opening the trimmers will create a reflex on the profile, resulting the glider to fly faster but with a worse glide angle. The benefit of the reflex is the stability at speed, the glider will become very pitch stable and the resistance against collapses will also improve. With the trimmers open the Yoti will dive even deeper in turns and if you want to follow the contours of the terrains or carve in skies with sweeping turns, this is the right configuration.

 

Flying with trimmers closed, pulling all the way down, it will cause the glider to slow down therefore improving the sink rate. A classic scenario: ridge soaring in light winds, pulling the trimmers all the way down will help to stay airborne for longer.

 

We recommend all thermic flying to be flown with trimmers on neutral, as it is the most optimal setup in terms of speed/glide/sink rate/sweet handling.

 

Be aware when flying the Yoti with trimmers pulled all the way down, it will change the stall point. Bear in mind not to use too much brake while in this configuration. Yoti loves the wind as much as she loves the speed. If you take it away from her she might stall sooner than expected.

 

Due to the combination of both a shark nose and a thin profile, Yoti’s brake travel is quite long and there will be plenty of warning before she stalls but she is small and usually flown heavily loaded so be careful when flying her and remember she is a mini wing.

 

The configuration of full open trimmers and full speed bar is where you can get the max speed out the Yoti but only use in an extreme scenario where you need the extra speed.
