Ozone Angel
Reserve Parachute

 

Ozone Pop-Up Speed BarTHE ANGEL
Everyone needs an Angel… even though no one really wants to use theirs. However, the fact is that when the time comes, the most important factors are safety and stability with a low sink rate for a gentle and controlled descent. The Angel 140 is certified to 140kg, meaning that even a pilot with a total in-flight weight of 140kg will have a stable descent of near or less than the tested result of 5.24m/s, and most pilots will have a slower descent with this size. The high stability and low sink rate, coupled with its affordable price and light weight make it a safe and popular choice for pilots of all abilities.

When it comes to stability and safety in round reserves, there is no substitute for surface area. For that reason, all sizes of the Angel are “big” in terms of surface, while still very light, and provide plenty of margin for the weight ranges they are certified to carry. In its three sizes, the Angel covers all pilot weights up to 140kg (total suspended inflight weight, including reserve). It is certified EN and LTF to the EN 12491 and LTF 91/09 standards. The Angel in this listing has a Short Bridle (for harnesses with integrated bridles), it does not include the "Y" bridle or Stainless Maillons, these may be purchased separately.

Although light, the Angel has been fully optimised for safety and reliability rather than weight. When it comes to parachute construction, weight saving often compromises safety – for example thinner, lighter line sets can and do fail in certain deployment configurations due to friction cuts. The Angel’s polyamide lines are burn resistant to 200 C, while some other lightweight parachute lines are made from Dyneema and are only resistant to 80 C. This is an important distinction and we recommend that pilots educate themselves about the ultralight equipment that they use. Polyamide lines are far superior due to their elongation properties and burn resistance. The Angel’s materials have been chosen for optimum durability and damage-resistance for a greater margin of safety, even in the most extreme situations.

NOTE: We think the Angel is just about as light as you can get without compromising the integrity of the materials or the sink rate. The Angel uses polyamide line which has a melting point of 200C; some of the light reserves on the market use dyneema line which has a melting point of 80C and this increases the risk of line failure due to friction, a high risk if you have an uncontrolled main glider interfering with your rescue chute.

SPECIFICATIONS
Bridle configuration: The Angel’s Y bridle (1.4m) attaches directly to the shoulder attachment points of your harness. No maillons are included (your harness will need to be fitted with 2 square or trapezoidal maillons, one for each shoulder attachment point). For more info please see the user manual.

DISCLAIMER: Please read and be sure you thoroughly understand this disclaimer before flying a TrikeBuggy. Trike flying is an extremely demanding sport requiring exceptional levels of attention, judgment, maturity and self discipline. It is unlikely that you will be able to participate in it safely unless you make a conscious and continual commitment to your own safety. PPG and Hang Glider Trike flying is a dangerous sport and may result in injury and death even when practiced by a competent pilot using proper equipment. TrikeBuggies are not covered by product liability insurance, nor have they been designed manufactured or tested to any federal or state government airworthiness standards or regulations. Do not fly them unless you are willing to assume personally all risks in the sport of Trike flying, and all responsibility for any property damage, injury, or death which may result from your use of this TrikeBuggy. Safe operation of the TrikeBuggy requires a pilot proficiency equivalent to that of a BFI (Basic Flight Instructor), as well as an equivalent level of knowledge and understanding of those wind and weather conditions which may compromise the pilot's safe control of the TrikeBuggy. In particular, be advised that gusty winds or turbulent conditions may interfere with even an expert pilot's ability to safely control the TrikeBuggy, and may cause it to crash. Never take anything for granted in Trike Flying. If you are in doubt about anything, stop and figure it out or call TrikeBuggy. Also please read our Warning and Caution!
