Stroud Safety is the leader in the non-rigid aerodynamic decelerator field (i.e. drag chutes). These chutes were designed from the start to be user friendly. Stroud Safety has over 35 years experience in parachute design and manufacture. After much exhaustive testing and refinement, the Stroud system was developed.The Stroud Drag Chute is designed to open very reliably and softly, pull straight, stop sooner and pack very easily by one person in 4 or 5 minutes. The Stroud system does not pull the car off the ground. It pulls low and straight back. With its special deployment system, this chute will open much softer and much more reliably, stopping your car in much less distance than conventional chutes.How to figure what size Drag Chute is right for your car.Some Stroud chutes are designed and built for a certain class.
