Triple risers - pros/cons? Can't Post

My new rig has triple risers - which I've never used before. What differences should I expect?

What are the pros and cons?

I'm flying a Stiletto 120 at ~ 1.1.

Thanks!

at 1.1, you probably wont notice a thing performance wise. do a serch on the gear forum on "triple" and you should hit a load of info from Mr Blue.....

I had trips on my AR-11 and changed them because they reversed risers. BAD CALL. If you are loading high (1:1.5+)
Trips make a difference. They let the canopy flatten out increasing the lift on flare and reduce steering line wear.


Skydiving is not a static excercise with discrete predictability...
