Gimmelift is made out of 15  transparent pockets. If completely unfolded the size is 150 cm x 15 cm. A person with an average build can easily hold and display a sign without any discomfort. In almost all cases 15 characters are more than enough to display destination names. Since it’s foldable, you adjust it accordingly. It is only 10 cm x 15 cm x 2.5 cm folded and comes with a travel case.

The size of the cards with the characters are 15 cm x 9 cm. This size was defined in a way that it would make readable even a longer destination name to drivers going 80-90 km/h from at least 30-35 meters, so it would give them enough time to slow down and stop. The fonts of the signs were chosen to achieve the best readability: the letters fill out the cards in a way that makes them legible from the longest distance.

The set contains 87 cards. The most frequently used letters are represented three times (e.g. A, E, K, M, N, O, S, T), others twice and the very rare letters (Q, X) once. The set contains also numbers, in order to use it for signs like ROUTE 67 or A2.

For paragliders: two cards with paraglider icon are also included that helps the watchful drivers realize what is your impedimenta.

Something extra for paragliders: Gimmelift Light weighs only 260 grams. This lighter version was inspired by feedback from cross-country paraglider pilots who wanted to reduce their take-off weight. It’s made of 170 gram coated paper. If you want to spare your knees even more, you can leave some letters or numbers at home, since you will not need all of them everywhere, and thus reduce the overall weight to just 150 grams or even less.

The heavier version weight is 360 grams and is made out of 250 gram coated paper. Here the cards are a little bit thicker but more durable. If  you are a paraglider pilot and your takeoff weight is closer to the bottom weight limit of your glider or somewhere in the middle, this might be also a better option for you. We recommend this version for non-gliders as well.

Another benefit of Gimmelift is that as the distance between its center of mass and of Earth’s center of mass grows, the force of gravity acting upon it is decreasing. That alone is already a reason to get it.

The size of our gift is also functional. If you fold these bigger cards in the plastic sleeves in half they have the same surface as the folded Gimmelift, and together they fit perfectly into the case.
