SNOWFLAKE Paragliding Reserves – Safety Without Compromises

 

  • Maximized potential of square reserves, a big step forward in paragliding safety
  • Use of completely new, state-of-the-art light and durable materials, never used before in the industry
  • Very fast opening rates (<3sec.)
  • Very low sink rate (4.6-4.8m/s)
  • Extreme pendulum stability
  • Large flat area (m²)

The SNOWFLAKE reserves are the next generation state-of-the-art paragliding rescue systems. They represent a breakthrough in performance including momentary high stability, extremely low sink rates and fast opening time, with durability and lightness at the same time.

We have achieved this through numerous innovations, experience gained from many years of producing paragliding rescue systems, and comprehensive testing. After two years of comprehensive testing and analysis of numerous solutions, we have finally come up with a breakthrough that fully uses the current potential of square reserves and truly follows our design philosophy – Safety without compromises.

The main objective was to produce a reserve that maximizes the current potential of the square reserve, all to the direct benefit of the pilot. This required us to produce a reserve that has a large volume, quick opening and most importantly – extreme stability during decent and very low sink rate. So, not just to conform to the current EN Standard, but to go even beyond it and to provide a quality product for the pilot that will not have any compromises for the sake of cheaper production costs etc. The use of a completely new special high quality EU manufactured material has enabled us to maximize the potential of the square reserve and enabling a large flat area design approach without the penalty of added weight or any other compromise for the pilot.

Since we set the goal so high – it was not any easy task to fit all the elements together. At start – we tried using the usual materials, but thanks to careful research and patience – we have waited for a completely new generation of materials with better resistance and durability and even lower weight, so it definitely paid off.
