SH 1 is made entirely from a French S-081 cloth, matching the strict standards of American Army Test (mil-7020).
Just as in the case of a paraglider, the parachute was designed with CAD computer programme. It resulted in an ideal canopy shape, without any bulges in individual panels.
That's why SH-1 has a very good sink rate while retaining a relatively small surface.
