An essential element
For many pilots the emergency parachute is an essential element of their flying equipment and it is a complex decision which type to purchase. No longer… Thanks to our collaboration with Vital Parachutes, a leading brand in the design and manufacture of parachutes, the Octagon 2 is one of the most advanced and safest parachutes on the market due to the evolution of its already famous and distinctive octagonal design. 

Total security
The best performance and the latest technology have been combined to maximise the pilot's options to the maximum, offering all the safety and reliability needed for emergency descents. 

The security of feeling safe 
The second edition of the famous Niviuk parachute offers greater stability in roll and a lower descent rate, so that your contact with the ground is even more gentle and smooth.

Innovative design without equal
The revolutionary octagonal design offers the best emergency solution for the pilot: a smooth, controlled descent with high stability. Its unique shape guarantees a quick deployment, it maximises the benefits of the parachute and is also lightweight and comfortable to carry.

Direct descent
The incorporation of a stabilisation system into the octagonal design mean an oscillation rate between 0 to 5º, well below the average market rate between 10 to 15º. With such small oscillation, the pilot avoids the pendulum effect during the descent and the risk of accelerating the fall is absolutely zero. Undoubtedly, one of the most stable parachutes in the world.

A gentle return to earth 
The landing is of utmost importance. Thanks to its octagonal design with a greater aerodynamic area, the reduction of the pendulum effect, the minimisation of down-planing when the paraglider is still open and an excellent braking surface, the Octagon 2 is a parachute with a low descent rate of only 4.8 m/s, meaning smooth and completely safe contact with the ground.
