A square parachute...

Compared to a conventional model, the FLUID square parachute offers exceptional performance, especially in terms of :

- very fast opening time (less than 3 seconds)
- low fall rate
- very high stability
- reduced length of the line cone

This results in increased safety, in particular the risk of throwing the parachute into the canopy is reduced thanks to the short line. Furthermore, the FLUID does not require the use of a special bag and is quick and easy to pack.




Supair is a pioneering paragliding brand, born in Haute-Savoie in 1979 thanks to the innovative spirit of Pierre Bouilloux and mountain thermals. Its common thread: the pleasure of flying, closeness to paragliders, excellence and teamwork. And they have never lost the thread. SUPAIR harnesses are inscribed in the memory of free flight. Their canopies are instinctive with a reassuring feel. The accessories accompany you in the air. The SUPAIR brand brings together designers, children of flight, and stratospheric imaginations to design outdoor products. Literally. We don't put on airs, we simply look like what we are: an efficient, well-groomed brand that is open to the freedom of the winds. Since the beginnings of paragliding, the brand has remained faithful to the creative and adventurous spirit of the pioneers, to facilitate access to the air for all new paragliders and to imagine new, innovative products and services. Everything had to be invented in the first Supair flights. Everything is still to be invented with each flight in our community.
The square rescue parachute is the ultimate in safety. More technical in its design, this "new generation" parachute has been developed to considerably reduce the pendulum effect and improve the sink rate. Efficient, it opens in less than 3 seconds! Bigger than the round parachute, the square rescue offers additional safety. On the other hand, it also comes at a higher price, and repacking it will require a bit of concentration (and lots of tutorials). For maximum safety without adding too much weight to your paragliding equipment, particularly for trekking or bivouac flights, square rescue parachutes are available in light and ultra-light versions. The smallest parachutes, such as the tapa X-Alps from Skywalk weighing up to 780 gr :)

How do you choose?

As you can see, the main argument for the square parachute is not its weight, but the safety it provides. Virtually any classic harness with integrated para pockets will fit it under the seat, whether it's a paragliding school harness, a sport harness or a cocoon harness. It's big, but not too big either :) Some chest pockets, such as the supair OLYS  have specific sizes that allow them to be fitted to the chest strap of light touring harnesses with leg straps. And of course, the light square rescue can be slipped into any (harness) pocket. Like your paraglider, a rescue parachute has a weight range. To optimise its opening, it is recommended to be 15% below its max ptv. CAD that if the max TPV is 100, the ideal is to be at 85kg. Most manufacturers do not take the weight of the glider into account when calculating the total weight of a rescue. So you'll have to take another look at the scales :) Although not compulsory, it is strongly recommended to ensure your safety. Don't hesitate to contact us to find yours, and we'll help you install it in your harness when you buy from us. Approval : All paragliding rescue parachutes are subject to European EN 12491 certification, and must pass a number of tests: - The opening time must be less than 5s, - The shock on opening must not exceed 15g, - Pendulum stability (observation from the ground of the stabilisation of pendulum movements), a parachute that is too unstable will be readjusted (and in any case, instability increases the sink rate...). - Fall rate: after a minimum fall of 100m, the measurement is taken over the last 30 metres before "ditching" → Max 5.5m/s. To ensure that it opens effectively, manufacturers recommend that it be re-bound every year. Tutorials are available to help you, but if you're not sure, don't hesitate to call in a professional or a sail inspection centre.
