Reserve

Just got the XT16 from Ozone. Does enyone have recommendations/suggestions for a light weight front mounted reserve? I have the Gin Speedrider harness that has rescue attachement points on the shoulder straps.

Any input would be highly appreciated. Thanks:)

From the manual

Option parachute de secours
La Speedrider est conçue pour être utilisée avec un parachute de secours ventral en option, comme le Yeti Rescue de GIN. D’autres modèles de parachutes de secours ventral peuvent être utilisés également.. Toute nouvelle installation (et aussi chaque pliage périodique) de parachute de secours sur le harnais (cela implique toute combinaison de matériels) doit être vérifiée par un professionnel. Cette vérification de compatibilité et d’installation assure que le pilote aura ses mouvements libres en toutes circonstances de vol, de manipulation, et de déploiement du parachute de secours. Ceci peut être vérifié sur un portique simulateur.

Which basically says if using a reserve, when attached should be checked by a professional to confirm it is compatible with the harness. I would guess all the Gin reserves would work fine and its non Gin reserves that may need to be checked ?

Gin Yeti Rescue is mentioned and the harness is rated up to 100Kg loading. With the shoulder attachments website says you need the 125cm Y bridle for a single riser rescue parachute (like the One G) to attach at the shoulder straps of your harness.

That is a very interesting question, as it crosses into a sensitive area. I am not an expert in paragliding reserves but I am skydiving rigger. With in the skydiving world anything to do with a reserve/container must under rigorous testing and meet Technical Standard Order (TSO) requirements. However speed-flying currently falls into a grey area of aviation in many countries so no global industry standards have been developed. But to get into more detail behind your question, I would contact the manufacture and ask if the rescue attachements have been drop tested, what is the recommended maximum load, and ask if they recommend the best way to attach a light weight reserve if any. More than likely they are going to say not tested as they are not going to accept any liability if it has not been well tested. My 2 cents, hope it puts down a helpful path
