Shine (Solo | Round Reserve)

by SUP'Air

The Shine is a round Pull Down Apex parachute, developed by our in-house design department. Its objective is to offer a very low weight and volume while maintaining maximum safety. Thanks to its advanced design and quality materials, it will meet the essential needs of all pilots of paraglider.

Approval: EN 12491 and LTF 9109
It meets the requirements of the European and German safety standards.

A hemispherical parachute...

The SHINE is a new generation of round Pull Down Apex parachute. It replaces the Light and X-tralite models that we have been offering for many years. Designed and developed by our in-house design office, it uses a proven 20 decitex fabric and a Line set made entirely of Dyneema.

Its weight and volume characteristics are very similar to those of the X-tralite model and much better than those of the Light model (15 to 20% lighter and more compact*), for a recommended retail price almost identical to the Light model!

The SHINE parachute is of course EN12491 and LTF 9109 approved
