Product Description

 

The Optimum Reserve is now offered in sizes ranging from 99 to 253 square feet. It is made from a new low permeability, low bulk fabric available exclusively from Performance Designs. We’ve combined this fabric with special aerodynamics and extensive reinforcing to create great strength, better performance, and a far smaller pack volume for a given size. 

The Optimums are rated for maximum exit weights ranging from 220 pound to as much as 290 pounds! The Optimum has successfully been drop-tested at weights and speeds considerably higher than those required for FAA certification according to TSO C23d, the highest standard to date. The Optimum flies and lands far more like a main parachute, too. All this and also provides a more powerful flare, by a wide margin, of any reserve we have ever tried.

This canopy is only available in Orange
