The Snap jettison:
The main advantage is the free and easy handling of this pilot suspension. No bars limiting your way just the engine on your back. It feels like a backpack. At first you enter your harness and then you take the engine.
After this you connect the J-Bars with the harness. The Bars are the limiting the distance of the engine and your wing. You can set the the angle of your engine depending on your weight. Through that "loose" connection of the engine to the pilot and wing, weightshifting and direct control are possible. The power of the engines lies direct on the back of the pilot.
This suspension is our evergreen.Free handling easy mounting with direct control. For traveling and desert standarts: just as easy it can be.
