Fluid, the new square reserve parachute from Sup’Air
NEWS FROM SUP’AIR
The reserve parachute from Sup’Air called Fluid is a new generation parachute offering maximum safety.
Compared to the traditional round models, Sup’Air say the Fluid provides additionnal safety with a faster opening time (less than 3 seconds) and a low descent rate of 4.7m/s. The Fluid’s square configuration gives it greater stability.
The reduction in length of the apex lines (4.5m) helps reduce the risk of entanglement with the paraglider’s main canopy during deployment. In addition, the Fluid doesn’t require the use of a specific deployment bag.
