The Advance Companion SQR (“Square Round”) introduces a completely new generation of reserve parachute; it combines the advantages of the classic round canopy and the more modern cross principle. The Advance Companion SQR has a very fast opening time, high swing stability and low sink rate all wrapped up in a lightweight package (1.2kg for max 100).
The Advance Companion SQR is the first model, and it heralds a new game-changing generation of “Square-Round” reserve parachutes for paragliders. The Hybrid Companion square is a new generation of reserve parachute, which merges the advantages of the classic round canopy and the cruciform version, to create an innovative and forward-looking technology.
The Companion SQR has been newly developed from the start, and is precisely directed to meet the needs of pilots and packers. Countless computer simulations and practical tests have been an essential part of an extensive development process.
Advantages of the Advance Companion SQR at a glance:
- Improved opening behaviour, low descent values and high resistance to swinging as the result of comprehensive practical tests and an aerodynamically refined canopy with optimized Air-Jets.
- Light weight due to careful choice of ideal materials and structure stiffness.
- Straightforward, reliable packing – similar to a round canopy – with comparatively few lines for easy sorting, using practical packing aids and coloured packing guides.
- Not trimmed to track in flight.
- Tested for water landings! A mix of traditional and new materials with new low-shrink webbings means that repeated full function is guaranteed after wet landings.
- Certified to both flight standards EN 12491:2001 and LTF NFL II 91/09 simultaneously, with the same technical specs for both standards!
