Sink steep approaches into technical BASE LZs with ease. This new canopy offers deep-brake and slow-flight performance in an agile and efficient design with tight handling and improved glide & flare performance.
HAYDUKE LITE is an ultralite & low-bulk parachute.
ULTRALITE PN9 with ZP leading edge for fast openings
FLOAT FLAPS at rear-chord for sink performance
Expanded SLAT System at center span for deep brake flight
5 Vents & Advanced Crossports for rapid inflation
Staggered Brake Cascade for smooth line deployment
Low-freefall to terminal performance - true versatility for all jumpers
HAYDUKE LITE represents what we think is an ideal balance of performance and passive safety. HAYDUKE LITE offers improved glide, yet retains the benefit of slow forward speed in DBS. The result: more time for object avoidance in the case of an off-heading, with agile handling that allows for fast, easy, and efficient (low sink rate) turns using risers or brakes.
Science & Observation: HAYDUKE LITE is the result of three years of R&D combined with customer and team jumper feedback. You tell, we listen. The result is progression that can be felt and experienced.
Inspired by a paraglider design, this key innovation has been an important part of the OUTLAW’s slow stall speed and forgiving deep-brake characteristics. We have tuned the concept and applied a widened and lower-volume Float-Flap array to HAYDUKE LITE. This feeds a wider portion of the span with a lower volume of air.
