G-Star Parachute Front Container
The Gstar redefinines parachute front containers.
Gstar stands for reliable parachute deployment even when the pilot is subjected to high g-forces. The clever release mechanism facilitates deployment from either side, using either the right or the left hand. The laterally positioned handles are within sight of the pilot and can easily be reached even if the pilot’s upper body is in a reclined/supine position (e.g. when exposed to high g-forces). Pilots with shorter arms can also reliably deploy their parachute.
Deployment is nearly instant, due to the close connection between the handle and the parachute container. Flexible nylon pins permit the parachute to be deployed with little resistance, in any direction of pull.
The compact design means the pilot will not be obstructed during take off or in-flight.
The stiff handles rest flat on the container and retain their shape even during transport or long-term storage in a compressed glider bag.
The parachute connector (Y-bridle or Beamer 3 riser extension) simultaneously acts as the main hang point. It is enclosed in a protective sleeve and fitted into the side of the container.
