Sepp Gschwendtner: Stefan Kurrle, boss of Independence, Independence has a complete glider palette and you've always been interested in reserve canopies. Tell us what's new on this front.

Stefan Kurrle: This year we're introducing the Seven Up, a completely new reserve concept made from seven individual canopies. This brings several advantages when compared with traditional round canopies, particularly in opening times and greatly reduced oscillation when descending.

Sepp Gschwendtner: Stefan, if that's true it would be fantastic, nevertheless I hope all of us will never need to use it!
