Let’s talk about those options:
Currently the sizes the we offer for the Mutant are: 303, 304, 305, 306, 307, 310, 314, 316, 319 and 320
Please follow this Canopy Sizing Chart for more information.
- The standard risers available with the Mutant are 30”.
Here are the reasons: Longer risers make for easier/safer packing as otherwise the toggles are almost out of the riser covers and there is excess line close to the bottom of the reserve tray. This would be similar to a 21” riser in a standard Micron.
- Longer risers, 33″ or 36″: For those pilots with longer arms that are happy with the performance and prefer to keep their rig tidy for free fall. This would be similar to a 23-25” riser in a standard Micron.
- Shorter risers, 27” or less: Some competition canopy pilots are opting for shorter risers for the change in performance (more sensitivity), they tend to not free fly with their Mutants.
The Mutant is delivered with 30″ Low Drag risers without dive loops, standard front dive loops can be added at no extra charge. Louie Loops are available as an add on option.
Bottom of container
We offer 3 options:
- the standard boxed corner
- dynamic WS corner
- ‘Old Style’ WS corner.
Your choice will depend upon how you want to use your rig.
If you intend to use your Mutant for canopy piloting competition and you want to make absolutely sure that those corners are open on deployment, then we would recommend the dynamic WS corners (this is especially true for high pack volume, high performance main canopies usually consisting of cross braced sail material, during sub terminal openings).
If you plan on taking your Mutant into free fall, in order to maintain pressure on the main handle we recommend the regular corner or the ‘old style’ WS corners. The ‘old style’ WS corners are standard corners that are not stitched all the way up (about half way) which allows a more open container for those high pulls or XRW.
Seat Pad Materials
If you plan on using your Mutant more for free fall purposes, we offer a softer, more malleable solution for harness protection with the same support for supine flying.
We always recommend that you aim for a soft landing but, if you are a competition pilot and you know that there is going to be some wear and tear, we offer a ‘Ballistic’ seat pad.
Seat Pad Sizing
- Standard Length
- +1 length
- +2 length
- +3 length
We all have slightly different size bodies and therefore we offer a standard length seat pad as well as 3 progressively longer options to help you find the right fit for the way that you fly. If you have previous supine experience, we recommend going for the longer seat pad straight away. We find most average height pilots are comfortable with the +2 length option. The container size will add to this change. Example: v314 will be longer than a v306 resulting in less additional length required. (see measurements on canopy sizing chart)
The standard configuration is a fully adjustable harness. Once you are confident with the fitment and settings you have the option to remove particular hardware for less weight and bulk, and to effectively ‘fix’ the harness to your dimensions. You may wish to order your Mutant with a fixed harness – in order to do so , you must provide the harness measurements located in the MUTANT MANUAL-014.
The standard option will be on your chest strap, we also offer an add on option for your leg strap.
