$120.00$269.00

The Remove-A-Slider (RAS) makes the transformation between a slider-up configuration to a slider-off configuration easier, faster, and eliminates the need to disconnect your canopy from your container. Most jumpers prefer to pair the RAS system with Soft Links for reduced weight, and increased strength and comfort. If you’re looking for traditional sliders, click here.

Description

Details:

The Remove-A-Slider (RAS) system makes swapping between slider-up and slider-off easier, faster, and eliminates the need to disconnect your canopy from your container. This means the risk of mis-rigging when swapping between slider configurations is reduced significantly. The grommets found on a typical slider have been replaced by custom stainless steel slotted rings. The slider can now be easily detached from the slotted rings without disconnecting your canopy. The slotted rings are then secured to their respective riser for secure stowage while not in use. The RAS is compatible with both hard links as well as soft links.

A similar version of the RAS system gained popularity in the skydiving world for its in-flight removable capabilities. In BASE in-flight removal is not necessary. The removal or installation is now a packing procedure. Switching between sliders (inserts) is easy with the RAS system. Using the same slotted rings the jumper can switch between a sail slider and a mesh slider (or large mesh to small mesh) without ever opening a connector link.  The transformation between each configuration takes under two minutes. Assembly Instructions.
