The Telesis 3.0 is the third generation of the Telesis student training system. Beginning in 1988 with the original design, the Telesis system has become the #1 best selling student training system in the world. It has set the standard by which all others aspire to.
The following are areas where the Telesis excels:
1. The highest quality- RI is known for it's legendary quality.
2. Rugged and durable.
3. Each generation has been technically more advanced than the competition.
4. Easy to use- Simple and easy for the student to operate.
5. Rigger friendly- Not just a saying but true. One of the simplest systems to pack and maintain.
6. Cost effective- They last long and are easy to maintain.
7. Six different sizes means that there is a size for all sizes of individuals and canopy combinations.
8. Built by a company with a reputation for backing it's products.
The Telesis 3.0 is built in 6 different sizes to accommodate all of today's canopy combinations. The smaller TS1 and TS2 are designed for very small individuals and also for use as transition systems in downsizing to smaller canopies during the training course. The largest size, the TS6 is designed for main and reserve canopies in the 300 sq ft range.
The Telesis 3.0 adjustable articulated harness configuration has been certified under TSO C23d and is rated at 325 lbs max weight and 150 knots. The load forces measured, have been in excess of 6700 lbs and the system is compatible with the strongest sport reserves currently on the market.
The container planform is based on the successful Talon FS design. Designed to ride higher on the back, the containers are narrower and contoured to fit the body. The reserve pin protector flap has a replaceable transparent window for jumpmaster checks. The Cypres window is located at the top of the container for easy accessibility and protection. The main pin protector flap is the popular upward closing configuration for ease of use and security. The riser covers use the tuck flap design for greater holding capability and durability.
The standard main deployment configuration is the AFF/BOC throw out pilot chute system. A reserve side deployment handle insures easy access during AFF training jumps. Built-in channels provide for installation of a ripcord housing and the use of a conventional spring launched pilot chute in the BOC ripcord configuration.
The 3-ring release is standard in a Two Action System configuration. An SOS is also available. Full metal release housings are standard as is the Reserve Static Line system.

The harness is an adjustable version of the most successful and comfortable articulated harness ever designed. Based on the Voodoo Multi-Flex design, Sandy Reid, the patent holder for the articulated harness, has developed an advanced version that incorporates a continuously adjustable horizontal back strap that holds the container firmly into the small of the back and keeps the containers from shifting in freefall. At the same time, this new design provides greater adjustability over a wider range of body sizes. The Voodoo V-Flex leg strap stays firmly in place during ground movement and provides superior comfort under canopy. While most students cannot tell the difference between different harness designs, they can tell when a design is uncomfortable. There is no reason for the student jumper to have a harness that is any less comfortable than that worn by their instructor or jumpmaster. The leg strap is a true double wide design with high density, extendable leg pads for maximum comfort and fit.
The adjustable main lift web is available is available in two size ranges- (A) XS-Med and (B) Sm-Lg.
The standard color configuration is a two color pattern with black trim and black harness. Custom embroidery is available as a cost option.
