Product Description

Cruciform rescue parachute Ultra Cross

Our Ultra Cross series represents what's technically feasible nowadays in manufacturing rescue parachutes. With only 975g Ultra Cross 100 is the lightest rescue system in the world, which is certified according to LTF and EN!

A unique fabric exclusively manufactured for independence, made of 10D sturdy Nylon 6.6 with only 22 g/m² weight and extremely light, yet high tensile Dyneema lines and ribbons, made our development process possible.

As basic shape for Ultra Cross we decided to use, just like for our EVO Cross series, a cruciform canopy, that ideally meets the requirements of paragliding, especially regarding fast opening times.

Defined outlet ports at each corner as well as the efficient construction of the canopy, lead to a steady flow around the canopy, which provides outstanding pendulum stability.

Precisely calculated suspension points for the lines maximise the projected surface and additionally reduce the parachute's sink rate. Due to these innovations, we were able to stay even below a required sink rate of 5,5 m/s according to EN 12491 restrictions - during certification tests we stayed up to 15% below that threshold.

Extremely short opening times, which come very close to notional specified minimum, have been achieved by a low, thus efficient, canopy height. Due to short system length and the way it is packed, it stayed up to 40% below admissible opening times.
