Pionier and market leader since 1984
Even before it became mandatory for air sports pilots to carry a rescue parachute in 1986, CHARLY, thanks to its innovative strength, was already one of the leading suppliers of hang gliding and paragliding rescue systems.
Center line construction, double canopy technology, rocket deployment, steerable rescues – CHARLY has always been among the pioneers. With the DIAMONDcross, the first steerable cross canopy, another milestone in rescue system construction could be achieved.
With Tom Grabner, CHARLY was able to win a developer who combines extensive technical know-how from his many years as an aeronautical engineer with a unique wealth of practical experience. The extreme paragliding acro pilot tests his equipment under the toughest conditions. This enabled him to take rescue equipment development a decisive step further.
DIAMONDcross Delta Light
The patented DIAMONDcross Delta Light is a cross canopy rescue system with diagonal drift and fanned out base. Its characteristics are fast deployment, minimal sink rates and almost no oscillatory motion. Available in sizes 125, 160 and 220.
Ultra-fine woven fabric and high-strength Dyneema lines allow for minimal weight and packing size.
The main riser is protected from damage by glider components by means of a Kevlar protective sleeve and is available with or without a built-in CHARLY Rotor swivel.
The flat inner container has been optimized on Tom Grabner's G-Force Trainer. It makes it easy to pull the rescue out of the harness compartment and ensures unobstructed opening.
Swivel for hang glider and UL rescue systems
In emergency situations, hang gliders and ultralights (UL) often get into rotating spins that can tangle the reserve. This is effectively prevented by the CHARLY Rotor. The main risers of modern hang glider and UL rescue systems are equipped with a swivel as standard. Installed by the rescue system manufacturer, the CHARLY rotor is DHV approved for all hang glider and UL rescues.
