In 1994, Relative Workshop unveiled the Vector 3 Harness/Container system – the first FreeFly rig on the market. This new design incorporated concepts that originated through years of research and development, and was introduced to meet the demands of modern SkyFlying.
In 1999, using the latest technology and the knowledge Relative Workshop gained in building the Vector III, we designed a container system aimed towards the growing trend of smaller canopies, the Micron- the most technically advanced harness and container system in the world. Relative Workshop did this by hiring a team of engineers never seen before in the arena of sport skydiving. These engineers, who happen to be world-class competitive skydivers, reviewed our systems designs and applied sound engineering practices to them. In doing this they were able to improve the function of the Vector III riser covers, pin protection, comfort and the operation of the three-ring release system.
Consistent innovators and perfectionists, our engineers continued to make improvements to the production and design of our products. This determination to make the most comfortable and safest skydiving systems in the world has resulted in yet another update to our “classic” Vector III. In February of 2002, we introduced the Vector 3 M-Series. The M-Series utilizes Micron technology to improve function, safety, and comfort and is designed to accommodate larger canopy sizes to that of the Micron.
In 2005 United Parachute Technologies bought the assets of Relative Workshop. United Parachute Technologies continues the tradition of excellence and detail.
