The Voodoo, Talon and Telesis have all now been upgraded see PIA Symposium 2008 for more details

Rigging Innovations, Inc., in keeping with its legacy of leading the industry, is proud to announce the debut of a totally new concept in harness and container design. Named the VOODOO™, the new design is the world's first dedicated FreeFly harness and container system.

Unlike current rigs which are descendants of 1970's speed star designs, the VOODOO™ completely addresses the needs of the FreeFly environment in terms of the attitudes and speeds encountered

The Container

The heart of the design is the shape of the container system. The profile of the container is curved from the top of the reserve to the bottom of the main resulting in a completely aerodynamic shape that slices through the air no matter what the attitude of the jumper in freefall. The container closing flaps are designed to be easy to use yet completely secure in freefall.

The reserve protector flap has been completely re-designed to use the most secure tongue combination in use today. The side tongues hold completely and the bottom pocket smoothes out the profile and keeps any lines from snagging. The internal pin pocket protects the pin from being dislodged.

The main pin protector flap is a streamlined variation of the upward closing flap utilized for over two years on the Telesis 2 and the Genera. Longer and more tapered than its predecessors, it also provides complete security and ease of use.

The main side flaps and riser covers have been integrated into one piece units that provide maximum coverage and protection while resulting in an aesthetically pleasing design that compliments the lines of the rig.

The BOC throwout installation is integrated into the bottom main flap in such a way that the main bridle is completely covered without the need of special flaps or covers. A ZP main pilotchute with a hacky handle and kill-line bridle is standard.

For those who prefer a pull-out deployment, an easy to grip, completely secure handle falls readily to hand.

The main riser covers have been lengthened to provide maximum protection for the risers resulting in only the 3-ring hardware being exposed.
The left side cover has a pocket for the hard housing to rest in and prevents it being snagged in freefall.

The backpad has been completely re-designed to integrate with the reconfigured harness to provide a new level of comfort and fit. A completely new yoke area provides a hinge at the top of the container resulting in a better fit over the shoulder. Additional padding makes comfort a key work in the "Voodoo" design.

Full metal 3-ring housings are standard. Both the 3-ring and reserve ripcord housings have been lengthened and are attached to their pockets in such a way that the cables remain fully covered and protected in all attitudes at all times. A variety of handle configurations such as metal, pillow, and fabric loop construction are available.

The Reserve Container - The reserve deployment bag has been re-designed to allow even greater ease of packing. At the same time it provides a firmer base for the Stealth pilotchute and contributes to even better launches than what the Stealth is known for.
