12' Ribbon Parachute


Ribbon and ring parachutes have similarities to annular designs. They are frequently designed to deploy at supersonic speeds. A conventional parachute would instantly burst upon opening at such speeds. Ribbon parachutes have a ring-shaped canopy, often with a large hole in the center to release the pressure. Sometimes the ring is broken into ribbons connected by ropes to leak air even more. These large leaks lower the stress on the parachute so it does not burst or shred when it opens.

Deist is credited with developing the sport’s first drag chutes back in the late 50’s. We have maintained a position of leadership to this day. Deist Chutes have always employed the latest state-of-the-art materials and technology. No wonder the majority of drag racing “fast guys” put their trust in Deist.
