The Edge is a new parachute system that combines a Hi-5 canopy with a brand new harness container, known as the Edge. It is also equipped with an attachable military working dog harness.
The Hi-5 canopy is best known for its outstanding glide modulation system. The Hi-5 features a remarkable 5:1 glide ratio and can transition to a 1:1 glide ratio with a simple control input using the Glide Modulation System. JC Berland, Chief Technology Officer of Airborne Systems, says, “The Hi-5 offers superior glide performance with its unique patent pending Glide Modulation System. It offers stability and resistance to stall and allows for the most accurate landings.”
