2000 Degree Chute Protectors of KEVLAR®

  7. 5 oz heavy duty Kevlar® to protect your chutes!

KEVLAR® has a high heat rating and is more resistant to tearing & blow-through than other products. Protect your rocket with KEVLAR®



9" for up to 2.6" airframe


12" for up to 3.9" airframe


15" for up to 7.5" airframe


20" Xtra Large Pad



TECH NOTE: To protect against hot ejection gases, rocketeers use a variety of methods. Some use cellulose. It's cheap, - - gases can bleed through and burn recovery systems. It`s also messy and very inconvenient - - you have to drag a bag of cellulose around. After all that money and time spent on your rocket, don't you want more protection than a handful of shredded paper?

Instead, rocketeers have discovered KEVLAR®, a material used by firefighters and others. CHUTE PADS of KEVLAR® have a buttonhole (over 1” wide) to allow the shock cord to pass through, so it forms a permanent part of your recovery system. Just fold your chute normally, slide the pad up the shockcord and cradle it around the chute. Insert chute into rocket with the KEVLAR® facing the ejection charge. That's it! The pads are inexpensive, and they last virtually forever. And they'll take a direct blast of ejection charge with no harm done. Compared to a piston, CHUTE PADS of KEVLAR® are much lighter, less expensive, don't take up space, and are maintenance-free. They are a popular product. Why are GIANT LEAP'S products of KEVLAR® great?

  1. Made with KEVLAR®, which has a high heat rating. KEVLAR® prevents tearing and blow-through which can damage a chute.
  2. Pads are rounded, not square. Square pads don't fold well in round tubes and increase the chances of blow-by.
  3. Pads have the button hole offset to the side. There are no holes or rings in the center, so you get maximum protection where you need it most.
  4. Affordable protection for your recovery system.

Shockcord Protector Sleeves of KEVLAR®



WARNING: Nylon shockcords repeatedly exposed to hot ejection blasts will degrade and eventually fail. PROTECT THEM with SLEEVES of KEVLAR®! The SLEEVE of KEVLAR® is an install-and-forget item. It protects nylon shockcords from ejection gases. A burned or brittle nylon cord will eventually snap.

  • Made of high temperature KEVLAR®!
  • Surrounds your shock cord with protection!
  • 30" in length

Only $12.95
