New Bridles / New Packaging
click for more

Our long standing, proven range of Mayday parachutes is now being updated with new bridle material and redesigned deployment bag. The new bridle webbing will be used throughout the connection between the parachute and the pilot. The webbing is constructed from Dyneema fibers, only 12mm. wide, rated for over 1,700 [DaN]. The new bridles are stronger than before, allow for smaller weight and packing volume, and due to the material's mechanical properties, reduce opening shock by offering higher elasticity.



Light Universal Bridle :: Code 42025 - made from this new material, will be offered alongside our existing Universal Bridle. The smart design of the Universal Bridles allows for connecting the reserve parachute to the harness without any metal links, further reducing weight and improving safety and strength.


For the Mayday parachutes, the new webbing is used for the end connection and incorporates Teflon coating at the friction point to eliminate any chance of burn out of the webbing during reserve deployment.


New Vs. Old

Deployment bag has been redesigned and now now includes a repack table for the pilot's reference.


MSM - stands for Military Spec Monkey and confirms that our reserves are made from fabrics, designed and manufactured in accordance to the strictest Military Specifications. This adds another level of quality assurance.

APCO's reserve parachutes continue to be supplied in a gift bag to be used for any purpose after reserve has been installed.
