The Power Racer is a format option available as either a 2K3 or Classic Racer.
It is mounted on a 9" wide by 15" long backpad and is limited for use with only the smaller range of sport canopies.
Parachute Labs’ (Jump Shack), design philosophy has always been organic, and evolutionary, adapting to meet the needs of the skydiving community. The Power Racer utilizes the first and only 4" diameter, externally-mounted
reserve (pop-top) pilot chute.
Other container manufacturers that utilize an exposed, or partially exposed, reserve pop top have narrowed their
containers, but kept a 6" reserve hat. Simple math says a 9" wide container with a 6" wide pop top gives you 1½ "
either side to form the reserve and sink the pilot chute spring, making for a potentially difficult reserve pack that, if
done badly, can allow for exposed pilot chute.
The Power Racer utilizes the same High Drag Pilotchute design that was NASA tested and proven to have the highest
capability of any pilotchute in the industry. Thus the Racer produces a 2-second reserve deployment with or without
RSL/MARD (usually within 30 meters). Magnetic Riser Covers
