Volt 170
parachute systems

I m beginner jumper. I used Safire for rental gear. Recently I bought Volt 170 because low price.

My WL is 0.88. I think Volt is similar to Safire about landing.

I also read Volt Description before buy. Looks like aggressive canopy on description. But Very soft opening and Landing is very easy.

I recommend volt to first canopy to beginner jumper that wanna save money of beginner jumper.

Great ground surf
Heavy on rears.

Only one high pull jump, but for what it’s worth my impression. Loading 0.90, it opened softly and on heading at TV. Easy and quick to pull in slider which was already on risers:-) a quick task then to bring down, unlike with my pilot.

Front risers I compare it to be harder than Sabre or Pilot at same sizing. Sink rate: brakes up Pilot (19mph) Volt (8.7mph)
1/2 braked: Pilot 8.6 Volt 2.8
Landing in side wind, a nice long ground surf - fast ran it out as if my life depended on it and didn’t face plant!

Strong flare, easy to pack, good openings, reactive to input
biggish packing volume

So after testing this canopy for some jumps I have grown to love it. At 1.15 wingloading it is a fast, reactive canopy that will take your fun to a whole another level. It is a big step up from most student canopies (navigators, solos) etc. so be prepared. It gets you home from long spots, while having a good sporty profile to play with. Toggle inputs are light with flare power to last. Even at my wingload you can get decent dives out of it so it is a good canopy for those getting into swooping. It can fly slow if you are tired or it can get your adrenaline pumping. Packing is a breeze. One of the best canopies I've flown till now.

I'm updating this post since I have downsized to a 185. I must say nothing has changed. Everything just got a bit faster and more fun. I load it at 1.3 and it opens and flies perfectly. Soft openings are standard. Love it even more now. I would say it feels even better at 1.3 than at 1.15. Everything is more positive, the wing feels like a part of your body. I had a light downwind on my 3rd jump and ran out no problem, great flare. The only problem I noticed after 50 jumps it is not that consistent on openings. It varies from a 2 sec fast off heading deployment to a perfect 4 second on heading with same packing every time. It is a steeper trimmed canopy compared to a Safire 3 and Pilot. I'd say it is closest to a Sabre 2.

Best landings ever! light toggle repsonse, fun fun to fly!
every opening is interesting

I got a pretty good deal on a new Volt 150, so even though there was very limited information/reviews out there on the performance of this canopy. This review comes after only 20 ish jumps on the canopy and after roughly 300 jumps on a triathlon loaded the same. The flare on this canopy is AMAZING!!! I made my last 10 jumps on no wind conditions and the flare was beautiful, a lovely little ground surf and then max, 2 step run out! The toggle response is light and very reactive. My volt has been really fun to fly! After 20 jumps, the openings are definitely interesting. If you have a 360 off heading opening, was it actually "off heading" lol? I've had 1 out of 20 on heading openings, now granted this could be body issue, so I am experimenting with this, but I also think it could have something to do with the closed end cells, every opening. Regardless, right now, I track hard, work on body position and get those rears as soon as possible, it's worth the fun of flying this really decently priced canopy!

just like it says. Soft on heading openings when pro packed properly
what cons. You can customise it any way you want

I really enjoy my Volt 185.
I have great landings, even in no wind.
I kno folks think...Really, South Africa. You just gotta open your mind
