longer risers for Icon container Can't Post

Hello people,

i currently own an Icon container and i am looking into changing the risers with longer ones. I browsed through Aerodynes website and did find longer risers available for the miniforce three ring system. The thing is that i would like to have bigger dive loops than the ones that came with the container when i purchased it. At the moment i can only fit 3 fingers inside and i suppose the longer ones that are sold from Aerodyne would have the same dive loops.

does anyone know if i could fit other risers on the container? I have seen some risers on Vectors with really big dive loops.

i have already sent an email to Aerodyne and while waiting for their answer i just wanted to get more opinions.

You can put all miniring risers on your aerodyne rig.
Upt sells risers with louie loups, they are quite big.
But I recommend not to put more then 3 fingers in your diveloops. Because you also need fingers to hold your toggles..

Have you thought about how longer risers might affect the canopy performance?
It's not necessarily going to be the same as before...

thanks for your reply! i've seen the UPT ones and i have to say that i like them. my concern is not that i need to put all my fingers in the loop but the fact that the loops i have now are very small and the material is soft. this is causing problems when i need to put my fingers to initiate a front riser turn.

thanks for your input!

yes i am fully aware that the behavior of the canopy will change. i've done a couple of canopy courses (two with flight-1) and i am really into canopy piloting with the desire to slowly start swooping.

Don't wait. Get the risers you want rather than using aerodyne.
