U-TURN BACKUP RS
Since the year one U-Turn examined the advantages of different reserve
canopy shapes and continued that through countless development innovations. The new round-square construction was also put through several practical tests and revealed astonishing results in the test flights. That is how the positive features of both construction designs were enhanced. The advantage of the mix-design is a very stable sinking at a high swing resistance. Through the additional air outlets the air can escape in a controlled manner and simultaneously provide a fast opening of the rescue systems as well as stability. The opening time as well as the sinking rate was considerably reduced through elaborate calculations at the BACKUP RS series, thereby we also managed to undercut the existing EN and LFT standards. The consistent lengths of the lines drastically simplify the packing of the rescue and are easily sorted through color coding. Another innovation by U-Turn is the easy connect. Through an integrated soft-link the main bridle of the BACKUP RX can be connected with any junction neat and easy.
The BACKUP RS is a reliable rescue system, built in accordance with the latest constructional findings. Minimal pack volume and weight make the BACKUP RS first choice for all pilots, who want to control their safety.

Maximal best values through minimal factors:
Very high swing resistance through the square surface area
with flat upper side and optimized air outlets
low tendency to gather pace through the round-square design
Optimized opening time through the Rapid Inflation System (RIS) in combination with the air outlet valves
minimal sinking rate of approx.. 5 m/s
Minimal weight through the resistant lightweight material Paratex SX20
Simplified packing through a packing procedure that is similar to the one of a round canopy
Simplified mounting through the Easy Connect system
The BACKUP RS has EN and LTF certification and is available as of now in the sizes 100 and 120. Backup your life!
