Light Universal Bridle :: Code 42025 – The webbing is woven from Dyneema fibres, only 12mm. wide and rated for over 1,700 [DaN]. The new bridles are stronger than before, allowing lower weight and packing volume, and due to the mechanical properties, reduce opening shock by offering higher elasticity.
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.

Assembly Instructions (Photo Guide):
Installation should always be done by a suitably qualified person.
Make sure the loops are balanced / equalised, with no twists, and make sure to pull the knot down and tight, so that there will not be any sliding or fiction which could cut or melt the bridles during opening.
