Gin Genie Light

The Genie Lite is the luxury harness of choice.

Suitable for a wide range of pilots who wish to fly with the option of a cocoon, ideal for cross country XC, longer flights and for flying with higher performance gliders. The Genie Lite offers benefits of our flagship competition harness, the Genie Race, now available in a lightweight, easy-to-use package with several outstanding features.

Designed to fly far

The GIN test team paid great attention to ergonomics--the shape of the back contours and supports the body in all the right places. Piloting and feedback is very precise yet the stability of the harness offers a reassuring feeling in turbulence. The aerodynamic shape has been honed to perfection and will give you the edge on long glides.

Protection and security

The Genie Lite has a 12cm Ginsoft Lite foam protector and is certified EN and LTF. The Ginsoft Lite extends to the upper back at a thickness of 8.5cm, offering protection even in the case of a rescue deployment. Deployment itself is rapid and reliable due to the rescue container having an extra wide opening. A Safe T-bar and cocoon link system prevents the pilot taking off without fastening the leg and chest straps.

Convenience and versatility

The Genie Lite weighs only 4.6kg (M size including carbon seat plate and carbon footplate), yet still offers excellent durability due to the use of advanced materials such as Dyneema. The Genie Lite comes complete with its own flight deck which holds up to 5L of ballast, and additional storage (3L) is available in a pocket under the seat. The built-in speed system is supplied with Harken pulleys and there are additional loops to fit larger pulleys. In case the cocoon is not required, it is easily detachable.


  • Detachable cocoon
  • Safe T system for chest/leg straps
  • Chest strap/cocoon safety link
  • Integrated speed system with Harken pulleys
  • Detachable flight deck
  • Ballast compartment under seat
  • Drinks system-ready
