The Apco Mayday Reserve Parachute Series are available for hang-glider pilots. This includes all three versions of  the classic mayday (Regular, Light and Superlight), and the Mayday SQ – Light Square Parachute).
We have upgraded our long bridle, to a double dyneema bridle, offering  lighter weight and lower bulk, with higher strength.
The Light Dyneema Bridle can be assembled onto all but the tandem and UL-28 Reserves (These  are supplied with specific bridles).
Assembly is simple, using a larks-head knot, and the bridle ends are protected with teflon sheaths, preventing meting of the bridle due to friction in case of a shock opening.
