Cruciform rescue parachute EVO Cross

The reserve EVO Cross was our first cruciform rescue system. Being the vanguard of this technology, we could set new standards for rescue parachutes. Very low sink rates, best pendulum stability and very fast openings - the system has proven its value in numerous tests and emergency situations, which made us by far the leading manufacturer of cruciform reserves.

NEW among this series: Evo Cross 235!

Cruciform rescue parachute EVO Cross

The EVO Cross series combines highest pendulum stability, lowest sink rates and fastest opening times in one rescue system. Thus EVO Cross is one of the most reliable available rescue systems. All major organisers of security trainings in Germany and abroad, who have tested EVO Cross, agree:

"EVO CROSS - the square of safety."

Another important detail regarding safety attributes is the fabric colour: orange is clearly visible in a forest, on a rock or almost every other surface.
