These TARC chutes are the lightest, most compact octagon chute available to low and mid power flyers. They have even found a place in micro-sat and can-sat operations due to being the lightest chute available and more durable than mylar or plastic.
1.1 oz ripstop nylon (mill thin)
Laser cut edges ensure that fraying is not an issue
The unique finish on the edges reduce bulk since the rolled hem is eliminated. The laser cut edges also do not snag like serged edges
Premium 100 lb spectra (1/3 the size and weight of nylon) lines are used. These lines are the thinnest and lightest on the market for nylon chutes.
Octagon shape provides higher drag than a hexagon or square chute.
Ask about getting a vent (spill hole) cut in the top to increase stability (if you need the most stableparachute available in the market ask about the rotofoil)
If you are needing precision in descent speed ask about getting a custom size made to the inch (9"-48"). Only cost 10% more than the next larger standard size.
