The Globe rescue chute is a successor of the long-produced SH-1 and SH-bi reserves.
It has been created to give a stable descent, and its weight ranges modified so that its descent rate does not exceed 5.5m/s, something of special importance to PPG flyers.
This new model introduces a new canopy geometry, and the use of several types of cloth with different air permeabilities in order to produce the required characteristics. There have also been improvements made to the deployment bag and outer container.
Dudek hope that they have achieved a chute which offers “a comfortable ride in the otherwise very uncomfortable situation of saving one’s ass…”!
