Maintenence Free Teflon Cutaway Cables
In 1997, Parachute Labs introduced the first Teflon coated cutaway cables. These were just like the familiar yellow Lolon-coated aircraft cables, but had a distinctive red coating. The aircraft cable inside was the same, but the coating was a custom Teflon formulation specifically made for this application. After extensive testing, these Teflon cables were found to reduce cutaway actuation forces by an average of 50%. This is a significant reduction. In 2010, a new formulation of this Teflon cable was developed, and the cables are now orange in color. Another advantage of the Teflon cables is that they are maintenance free. Did you know that you have to oil your yellow Lolon-coated cables every month? You do, and you should! This is not required on a Racer.
