Reserve Pilot Chute
Powerful and proven technology.
Another primary advantage Mirage Systems has is our reserve pilot chute design. The Mirage reserve pilot chute is well known among riggers world-wide for its incredibly strong spring. By using a long steel spring with 40 lbs. minimum spring tension, we achieve a fast, powerful reserve deployment without exposing any pilot chute cap. Combining a strong spring with a smaller diameter aluminum cap, we reduce top weight by 20% and cap surface area by 30%, resulting in a lighter pilot chute with less wind resistance. Our partial-mesh canopy profile is designed to achieve full inflation even at low wind speeds. You can be confident of rapid, full pressure inflation every time.
