Racing Parachutes

Stroud is the industry leader in racing parachute design and manufacturing. With 50 years of experience to lean on, Stroud supplies parachutes to some of the top racers in the world today. 

Stroud chutes are commonly used by dragsters, motorcycles, and mini-dragsters. Our chutes are…

  • Made in the USA
  • SFI certified
  • Soft opening
  • User friendly
  • Easy to pack
  • UV and Heat resistant
  • Low weight
  • Wear resistant 
  • Water repellant
  • Rip stop construction
  • Available in a variety of sizes and colors
  • Tested, tried, and true

Please use our Drag Chute Sizing Calculator or download the Drag Chute Sizing Chart below to determine the parachute or parachute combination for your race vehicle. For packing your chute refer to our two instructional videos “How to Pack a Drag Chute” and “Replace Drag Chute Pack Release Loop”. If you have questions, please call and consult one of our drag chute specialists. Proper parachute sizing is critical to driver safety.

WARNING: DO NOT USE the TUBE type parachute mount where the chute attachment loop goes inside a tube and a bolt goes through the tube and loop. This will almost always cut the loop after a few uses. We will NOT warranty any of these repairs!
