“Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.” Leonardo da Vinci

SKY SPARE Light is a new reserve system that follows in the tracks of  the reliable and popular SKY SPARE.

This new generation has been considerably developed. The weight is lower (only 1.3 kg for the M size and only 1.85 kg for the XL size) and still, the sink is only < 5.5 m/s as required by the standards.

This reserve is EN 12491 and LTF certified and represents a state of art product on the market.

The reserve is supplied with maillon 6,0 CI for connecting to the harness risers.
