Karré, the Quintessence

The all-new Kortel Design reserve Parachute, Krisis Karré, brings 3 main innovations compared to its competitors:

The unique design of the Karré generates horizontal speed after opening. This creates lift, and thus to significantly reduces sink rate.

This horizontal speed also brings about a glide ratio around 1.5, allowing the pilot to steer the reserve with the pair of handles, thus avoiding potential obstacles during descent.

The asymmetric shape forces a folding pattern which improves opening speed while keeping folding complexity to a minimum.

Features

Stability

Stability

The Karré design yields increased stability compared to a conventional hemispheric.
Specific Pod

Specific Pod

The pod's design and the rescue's low compression inside the pod improves extraction speed, especially with a  rescue pocket in the harnesses
Improved sink rate

Improved sink rate

The horizontal speed of the Karre allows it to develop  lift which greatly improves the sink rate performance
Directable

Directable

Due to its horizontal speed, the Karre is directable, adding an additional level of safety by avoiding obstacles

Options

Pod for frontal mount

Pod for frontal mount

More compact pod for use in frontal position
Riser protection

Riser protection

Protects the risers from UV in case of an assembling them in the open air, as in the tandem.
