Ozone Angel Reserve Parachute
The Ozone Angel has been one of the most popular reserve parachutes we have sold in recent years here at Fly Sussex Paragliding. Paraglider and Paramotor pilots of all abilities choose the Ozone Angel for its high stability, low sink rate and affordable price tag. The Ozone Angel is lighter than a lot of other comparable ’round reserves’ and offers a larger surface area than similar reserve options.
- Pull Down apex ’round’ design
- Low sink rate
- High stability
- Certified EN and LTF to the EN 12491 and LTF 91/09 standards
- Durable materials
- Tried and tested with many successful deployments over the years!
When it comes to stability and safety in round reserves, there is no substitute for surface area. For that reason, all sizes of the Angel are “big” in terms of surface, while still very light, and provide plenty of margin for the weight ranges they are certified to carry.
The Ozone Angel comes in three sizes; 90, 110 & 140 maximum weight (total suspended inflight weight, including reserve).
Although light, the Ozone Angel has been fully optimised for safety and reliability rather than weight. When it comes to parachute construction, weight saving often compromises safety – for example thinner, lighter line sets can and do fail in certain deployment configurations due to friction cuts. The Angel’s polyamide lines are burn resistant to 200 C, while some other lightweight parachute lines are made from Dyneema and are only resistant to 80 C. This is an important distinction and we recommend that pilots educate themselves about the ultralight equipment that they use. Polyamide lines are far superior due to their elongation properties and burn resistance. The Angel’s materials have been chosen for optimum durability and damage-resistance for a greater margin of safety, even in the most extreme situations.
