Info

We believe our WOW reserve parachute systems are the most reliable and safest around. It is EN certified and tested to the highest standards because we don’t want to have to think twice if we really need to use them.

The Wow is a modern square reserve parachute with a fast opening time, low sink rate and high pendulum stability. The corner cut-outs make it very stable in descent straight after deployment, and the symmetrical design prevents system-related forward movement, resulting In a stable descent with easy landing.

The reserve comes with a fast-opening lightweight deployment bag made of high strength rip-stop with 4 holding flaps. It is compatible with most standard paragliding harnesses.

Tech

Easy-packing tabs

We have added packing tabs to each cell in order to make packing easy, consistent, and safer.

High-vis Container

A high-visibility lime green colour has been used for the reserve container, so that if the reserve is thrown the bag can be easily spotted and retrieved

Light durable materials

Using Nylon 6.6, 33dTEX parachute fabric and Edelrid A-6798-150 lines, we have kept weight to a minimum while maintaining outstanding strength and durability.

Laser-cut panels

The reserve is built to the highest standard of precision, with laser-cut panels and sealed edges

Pulled-Down Apex

Reducing sink rate and improving stability, a pulled-down apex maximises safety.

Reinforced handle strap

The handle strap is reinforced to help improve the reliability of the system.

Square shape

Modern square-shaped parachutes have exceptionally good sink rates for their size.

Target

The WOW reserve is for pilots who want a reserve for everyday flying that is fast opening, reliable, and safe. A reserve parachute is an essential component to every pilot's flying gear and even though none of us would ever plan on using it, having a reserve you can count on is crucial. Don’t scrimp on safety!

Designer's notes

I fly almost every day for pleasure and work. I demand a lot from my equipment and have been impressed by the WOW reserve. Packing size, weight, and durability mean the parachute is perfect for my normal flying gear and I can use it for many years to come.

The materials and technologies used in the construction ensure the WOW’s reliability and robustness for a long service life. It is made from lightweight materials and packs down small. The panels are CNC precision cut, and the polyamide lines attach to the canopy with traditional loops, so they are quick and easy to replace if necessary. The lines have some stretch, so they absorb some of the impact of a deployment.

The reserve is packed in a lightweight inner container which is designed to open in any direction. If you need it to open, you need it to open!
