If you like to skydive fast, the r-Max is for you.
During recent years our sport has seen freefall speeds increase significantly with the gaining popularity of headdown skydiving and speed skydiving events. Now, for the first time, here is a reserve parachute that is tested and manufactured specifically for these speed disciplines. The r-Max Reserve is made with Dupont SolarMax fabric and constructed on a framework of our own custom woven Spectra support tape that is interlaced throughout the canopy for superior strength and reliability at these elevated speeds. This network of Spectra support tape is crafted together in combination with a spanwise reinforcement system. We have utilized the added strength of our superior spanwise seam structure and coupled it with a matrix of lateral load bearing members from one stabilizer to the other. The powerful chordwise structure of the upper surface combines with a bulletproof spanwise structure in the lower surface and all of it is tied together with our unique line attachment system to produce the strongest reserve we have ever manufactured, and we have been manufacturing reserve parachutes for over 20 years. The r-Max Reserve has been drop tested at a speed of 250 mph with 20% more than the Maximum Operating Weight Limitation.
