The Cires is a classic flat circular parachute (PDA) more functional, but with a higher overall quality and performance level. Safety, lightweight and practical.
At Niviuk we believe that a reserve parachute is an essential piece of gear to guarantee pilot safety, and hence selecting the best model is as important as choosing the rest of the equipment. Having all these elements together working in sync allow the pilot to fly with peace of mind.
Our alliance with Vital Parachutes (expert rescue parachutes manufacturer) was key in being able to offer pilots a great safety option meeting our quality standards and expectations.
Its special and more noticeable circular shape reduces the oscillation angles from 5 to 15º and keeps the descent rate to 5 m/s at maximum load, thus making it more stable and promoting safer landings.
The weight/performance ratio is also one of its strengths. The high quality light materials used to build it considerably reduce the overall weight of the rescue without reducing its surface area, resulting in more air resistance and a better skink rate. For example, the M size (1.7 kg) has a load capacity up to 110 kg and an excellent 5 m/s descent rate.
Available in three sizes: M, L and Tandem.
