Nobody had a Triathlon in my country. But in Parachutist I read it's advertised characteristics and it attracted me. Then I spoke to my Instructor who had jumped one many years ago and remembered particularly it's high stability. He readily encouraged me to buy one. I just got my Tri 160 and gave it a try. And it sure keeps it's promises! Great stability, very responsive, allows nice, sharp, exciting turns, flies very well upwind, flares beautifully, very good canopy for someone who is not looking for a radical one but still wants to feel the excitement that canopy flying can deliver. Openings are very smooth and on heading. It is also quite an easy job to pack, unlike most (all?) ZPO's, essential for a sloppy packer like myself. If you are looking for a very nice, exciting, easy packing non-radical canopy, Triathlon is an excellent option!
