DESIGN YOUR OWN
The Hybrid is terrific for those jumpers who want a canopy adapted and reinforced
for intermediate to advanced CRW that can also be comfortably deployed in free-fall.
The Triathlon Hybrid airfoil is identical to the RW version with the addition of ¾ inch
leading edge reinforcing tape and the proprietary Aerodyne Research 4-point retractable
pilot chute system. Center 'A' and 'B' lines are non-cascaded and made of high-visibility
orange 900 pound Dacron. The Triathlon Hybrid is extremely popular for many skydivers
because nearly everyone does some CRW at one time or another. For only an additional
$100, the extra reinforcing, pilot-chute retraction system, and non-cascaded centerlines
are a real bargain--eliminating the potential need to purchase another costly, specialized,
CRW canopy. Many Hybrid owners purchase our kill-line collapsible pilot chute for use on
non-CRW jumps. When the opportunity for some serious CRW arises, they simply swap
the KLPC with the retractable CRW bridle and a standard pilot chute--a process that takes
only a few minutes. The KLPC is quick and easy to pack and saves wear and tear on the
CRW bridle as well as eliminating a step from packing when the retractable bridle is not
