The QUAD LIGHT 160 embodies reliability, lightweight design, and stability, a culmination of years of design expertise, innovation, and unique problem-solving solutions.

The design, materials, and technologies used in the Quad Light 160 make the product highly reliable, as confirmed by the certificate. The materials used have been specially designed for such applications – they do not stick or change dimensions and have relatively low breathability. The panels are cut on CNC laser cutters – this improves the accuracy of the overall shape, but also seals the edges and increases durability.

The QUAD LIGHT 160 will be primarily used by PPG pilots, but it can also be used by tandem pilots and those for whom the typical MTOM (Maximum Take-Off Mass) of 130 kg is not enough. 

The QUAD LIGHT 160, is smaller, faster to open, and easier to pack into a container. It opens quickly and has a low descent speed of 5.35 m/s (at maximum load). The design of the QUAD LIGHT 160 system works with corner stabilizing holes, ensuring stability even in very turbulent environments. The QUAD LIGHT 160 is stable immediately after opening, which is very helpful if it opens just above the ground.

The QUAD LIGHT 160 is equipped with lightweight Dyneema lines that are specially designed for rescue parachutes. The polyamide center lines have the ability to easily absorb shocks. The opening is smooth even at higher speeds and increases passive safety because the shock is not absorbed by the pilot’s body but by the lines. The lines are connected to the reserve parachute with traditional loops; they are not sewn into the rim of the canopy. If you need to replace a damaged line, you do not need to look for a workshop; just remove the damaged line and insert a new one in its place. It’s quick, easy, and there’s no room for error. The cover has four marked flaps. Packing is very simple and convenient. The cover is designed to accommodate the folded lines directly on the flap. This makes the opening faster, plus checking the lines is simple and quick. The QUAD LIGHT 160 uses the proven Dyneema strap as the main riser.
