Ultra light, fast opening, advanced emergency reserve parachute from Swing.

Price: £530.00

Product Details

The Swing ESCAPE emergency parachute opens quickly, has an amazingly low sink rate for its size and a high level of pendulum stability. These are the cardinal requirements for a perfect reserve parachute and ESCAPE also packs into a small volume deployment bag and the system weighs ~1kg for the M size!  Swings’s new ESCAPE incorporates an innovative valve system, which has made it possible, for the first time, to combine the advantages of the tried and tested double canopy (high level of opening safety and pendulum stability and rapid opening time) with the advantages of a ‘traditionally’ designed reserve with respect to repacking.

ESCAPE is the first choice for any pilot who wants to rely on advanced design technology and specialised materials for their second chance. In particular, its extremely low weight and pack size, combined with very good descent rates, suggest that the ESCAPE is destined for use in lightweight harnesses such as the Connect Reverse, or as a second reserve – in a separate front container for extreme flying, or in the integrated front container of the Connect Race for competitions. 

NB. Opening speed is an important aspect of an emergency parachute system. The ESCAPE is excellent in this respect, just compare with the test results of other systems and see for yourself. You may need your reserve when you are at low altitude in which case the opening time is critical.
