The new Kortel Design rescue parachute, Karre, has 3 main innovations in front of the competition:
- Karre’s unique design generates a horizontal speed after opening. This one allows to create a lift, and thus to significantly improve the rate of fall.
- This horizontal speed also has a fineness of the order of 1.5, which allows the pilot to direct the parachute through the handle system, and thus avoid potential obstacles during the descent.
- The asymmetrical shape induces a folding which improves the opening speed, without complicating the folding.
