Innovation in Harness & Container Technology: Around the world, the Talon is recognized for both technical excellence and superb comfort. These features come from years of development testing and experience. The Talon's reputation for quality and safety are now enhanced by the designs originally developed for the Flexon. The Talon FS has incorporated the legendary Voodoo harness with a re-designed Talon to produce a new design that is simple to pack, rides higher, hugs the body tightly, and makes a "better box" than the competition. Especially suitable for competition skydiving, it works for all of today's skydiving.
The Talon FS container system is a highly refined "box" configuration. Rigging Innovations has taken the heart of the Voodoo container, the reserve system, and merged it with a better box design for the main. The containers are narrower and shorter than the Talon 2 for comparable size canopies. RI uses the same reserve container configuration as the Voodoo with the same protector flap. The main utilizes the same upward closing flap as the Voodoo. RI increased the plastic stiffener thickness to help flatten the flap out. The main side flaps incorporate the wrap around bottom design that provides for a better bridle protector as well as a natural POP mount. The main riser covers have been re-designed for better holding power and allow for the main risers to be stowed in any manner with no effect on deployment. A side note is that these covers worked so well, that they have been merged into the Voodoo design. They hold better, are smoother looking, and result in better over the shoulder comfort. The backpad is shaped and contoured to fit the shoulders and upper body and stay in place. The center flap stripe options are similar to those utilized on the Talon 2 for those who prefer more conservative design choices.
The harness was taken directly from the Voodoo design. Sandy Reid is the inventor and patent holder for the articulated harness. He has already thought of and tested all the different designs currently used by other companies for their articulated harnesses and has discarded them in favor of the configuration currently used for the Talon FS and Voodoo.
"V-flex" leg strap configuration is simply the best and most comfortable yet designed. The leg straps stay in place without the use of "suspenders" and "bungees" that others rely on.
The "Multi-Flex" harness configuration with chest and hip rings allows for maximum comfort and flexibility. The chest rings allow for the yoke to be worn straight down from of the chest, which in turn relieves pressure on the outside of the shoulders. This allows for maximum upward reach.
RI has designed their own version of the "cut-in backstrap" which they have named the "Competition backstrap". The use of the hip ring oriented from the horizontal and coupled with a comfort pad, results in unparalleled stabilization of the container to the back and maximum comfort.
The main risers utilize a new hook and loop fastener-less toggle design that is flatter and more secure than in the past.
