Ultra Cross 210

Tandem rescue parachute

Our best - now available as tandem reserve! Now among the lightest serie of our high-performance reserves: Ultra Cross 210. The world's lightest tandem rescue parachute certified according to LTF and EN!


The success of independence cruciform reserves is based on its outstanding reliability in emergency cases. With their excellent pendulum stability, lowest sink rates and fastest opening times, they have been proving their value and encouraged us to enhance this design and widen our cruciform series. As market leader it has been an important concern to us, to make our cruciform parachutes available for tandem pilots, too.

After a long period of development work and many tests, two models have been certified according to LTF and EN in 2016: a model of our EVO Cross as well as the Ultra Cross 210.
