08-03-2004 > WindSOS sizes renamed according to their m2.
Windtech's range of WindSOS reserves have been renamed according to their m2, instead of the number of gores as they were previously, to reflect their superior size to other reserves and better value for money.

So, the 16 gore WindSOS is now named WindSOS 31m2, the 18 gore is WindSOS 35m2, and the 20 gore is WindSOS 48m2.

Featuring an advanced design and the best available materials on the market, the WindSOS reserve parachute gives an extremely fast opening time combined with a smooth and stable descent, and a very slow descent speed.

Compare the WindSOS tech specs with the Apco Mayday*:
