Back to the roots? The name Atlas is a throwback for designer Gin Seok Song. He designed a classic – and very successful – beginners' glider in the 1990s for Edel, which was also called the Atlas. Photo: Jerome Maupoint

Testing is ongoing according to the Para Test website. So far the Medium size has been classified EN B. The test result for the Gin Atlas (EN B) is here.

Gin looks set to have a bit of renaissance this year – the EN D Boomerang 9 is performing well at the Superfinal, and a new EN C glider surely can’t be too far away.
