The one canopy that does it all...

The Triathlon is available in 3 different versions:

TRIATHLON (RW):

The Triathlon is a seven-cell, zero-porosity ram-air parachute, designed for skydivers who want one parachute that does it all.

Today's skydiver is much more versatile and multi-talented than ever before. Free-fall, canopy relative work, freeflying, sky-surfing, sit-flying, demo jumping, cross-country flying, parabatics, and more...are all readily available to the weekend fun-jumper. Until the Triathlon, no single parachute has existed that could excel in all of those specialties! The Triathlon is an ingenious design created and perfected by Aerodyne to help give you a simple choice for a new main canopy.
The Triathlon is a user-friendly parachute with exceptional packing, opening, flying, and landing characteristics. It just flat-out does everything superbly...with zero bad habits!

The Triathlon is constructed from advanced zero porosity fabric and has achieved a superb reputation for dependably soft and consistent on-heading openings.

The Triathlon is great fun to fly with light toggle pressure and quick turns. The very efficient Triathlon airfoil has a fast forward speed and excellent glide and has also achieved an excellent reputation for rock-solid stability--even in extremely turbulent conditions.

Landings under a Triathlon are especially impressive. You can perform turf-surfs or land softly on a tight demo approach. The wide range of landing capabilities leaves all of your options open. These landing characteristics are the reason the Triathlon is the canopy of choice for the world's most accomplished professional parachute demonstration teams.

The Triathlon is durable, reliable, and produced to the absolute highest quality control standards in the industry and enjoys a reputation as one of the most user-friendly and trouble-free parachute made! If you are a person who might enjoy doing CRW one morning, freeflying in the afternoon and a big way at the end of the day, the Triathlon can do it all.

The Triathlon comes standard with your choice of 725 Spectra or 525 Dacron lines and a drawstring collapsible slider.

Features

  • An ingeniously designed 7-cell canopy combining user-friendly handling characteristics with outstanding performance.
  • All Zero-p fabric.
  • Smooth predictable handling.
  • No other canopy offers such a wide range of landing capabilities from Demo to Swoops.
  • New steering line configuration for increased flare power.
  • Small pack volume due to seven cell construction.
  • Comes standard with spectra line, soft links, and collapsible slider with “super-lightweight” stainless steel grommets.

ZPX Fabric Option NOW AVAILABLE! (add $200.00) ZPX is a new step in the evolution of Zero Porosity fabrics. It's lighter, thinner, stronger, and easier to pack. This new honeycomb hexagon weave design packs 15% smaller than traditional ZP fabrics. NOTE: You must specify election of this option upon ordering.

TRIATHLON HYBRID:

The Hybrid is terrific for those jumpers who want a canopy adapted and reinforced for intermediate to advanced CRW that can also be comfortably deployed in free-fall.

The Triathlon Hybrid airfoil is identical to the RW version with the addition of ¾ inch leading edge reinforcing tape and the proprietary Aerodyne Research 4-point retractable pilot chute system. Center 'A' and 'B' lines are non-cascaded and made of high-visibility orange 900 pound Dacron.

The Triathlon Hybrid is extremely popular for many skydivers because nearly everyone does some CRW at one time or another. For only an additional $100, the extra reinforcing, pilot-chute retraction system, and non-cascaded centerlines are a real bargain--eliminating the potential need to purchase another costly, specialized, CRW canopy.

Many Hybrid owners purchase our kill-line collapsible pilot chute for use on non-CRW jumps. When the opportunity for some serious CRW arises, they simply swap the KLPC with the retractable CRW bridle and a standard pilot chute--a process that takes only a few minutes. The KLPC is quick and easy to pack and saves wear and tear on the CRW bridle as well as eliminating a step from packing when the retractable bridle is not needed.

Features:

  • The one canopy that does it all.
  • An ingeniously designed 7-cell canopy combining user-friendly handling characteristics with outstanding performance.
  • All Zero-p fabric.
  • Smooth predictable handling.
  • No other canopy offers such a wide range of landing capabilities from Demo to Swoops.
  • New steering line configuration for increased flare power.
  • Small pack volume due to seven cell construction.
  • Comes standard with spectra line, soft links, and collapsible slider with “super-lightweight” stainless steel grommets.
  • The only CRW canopy that can be deployed comfortably at terminal freefall speeds.
  • Fully prepared for CRW, with leading edge reinforcements, Aerodyne’s 4-points pilotchute retraction system and non-cascaded A- and B-lines.
  • Can be configured easily and quickly for freefall jumps, by replacing the retraction system with a common kill line pilotchute.

TRIATHLON CRW:

The Triathlon Competition CRW Series are highly specialized parachutes designed exclusively for World-Championship level competition.

This canopy uses the basic Triathlon airfoil--but has been highly modified for maximum CRW scoring performance by professional teams. The inlet is an open design with a modified sweep angle for maximum opening consistency and minimum inflation time. The canopy also features a mesh slider and tail-pocket deployment system. The reinforcing tape on this canopy is industrial-strength to survive the rigors of competitive CRW team use.

It is important to note that he Triathlon Competition CRW Series is designed for sub-terminal competition exits. It cannot be comfortably deployed at free-fall speeds--and may cause serious injury if used for traditional free-fall purposes.

The Triathlon Competition CRW Series is the choice of the current CRW World Champion Russian Army team as well as the silver medallist Italian CSE team, and bronze medallist French National Team.

These canopies are typically ordered in sets of four or more by teams. Aerodyne Research has several former CRW World Champions on staff to provide the specialized individual guidance necessary to suggest perfectly matched performance and to select proper wing loading at the very-high levels preferred by World-Class competitors.

Features:

  • A highly modified Triathlon, complying with the demands of CRW competitors.
  • Consistent openings with a minimum of inflation time.
  • Comes with a mesh-slider and a tailpocket deployment system.
  • Constructed completely from zero porosity fabric.
  • Heavy leading edge reinforcement.
  • Designed for subterminal exits only.
  • The canopy of choice for world champion teams and anyone who would like to compete against them
