The base jumpers parachute is designed to open quickly at low speed. Unlike skydivers, who typically fall several thousand meters before deploying the parachute, BASE jumpers don’t have time to reach terminal velocity. To compensate, the drogue, a parachute that pulls the main chute out of its container, is vastly oversized, so it will catch more air. Most significantly, there is no backup chute; if the main parachute doesn’t open, there’s no time to deploy a second one. Caution: Do not try this sport without proper training or equipment.
