Rescue parachute Annular Classic

The original! Our legendary Annular series, which we have been manufacturing for more than 25 years, meanwhile became the most common rescue parachute concept in the world. For years it has been antetype to so many rescue systems, which have been constructed pursuant to its design. Often copied, never beaten!

Rescue parachute: Annular Classic

Since 1995 the Annular system has been manufactured ten-thousandfold and nowadays it is still available in the following sizes: 30, 36 and 38.

Its revolutionary concept, altough 20 years old, still represents state of technology in annular parachute manufacturing and has been adapted almost unmodified to the design of our light-rescue Annular EVO.

The series, due to its shape, shows excellent pendulum stability, thus makes smooth landings possible. The final development step in manufacturing Annular Classic was the development of deployment accelerators: RAM air pockets. These pockets achieve fast and retainable opening even at low speed.


  • Exceptional value for money
  • Large surface
  • Ram air pockets: for the fastest and most reliable opening ever achieved in annular parachutes
  • Pendulum stability
  • Well-proven annular shape
  • Easy to pack
  • For high total load at low sink rate
