What would be cool is if I could use SKLZ's Speed Chute to run from my mama's front entry vestibule, down the hall, through the living room, out the sliding doors, and off the back deck, and then float peacefully and unharmed 12 feet down to the sloped grassy knoll below. I don't know if that would work though. What definitely doesn't work is doing it with a cut-up garbage bag tied to my back.
Intended strictly for use on the X-axis, the Speed Chute generates progressive resistance during running that helps athletes and people who regularly try to elude the po improve speed, stamina, strength, and acceleration. Depending on the runner's own speed, the Chute will add an additional 15 to 30 pounds of resistance. It also includes a quick-release buckle for those who want to practice explosive breakaways after establishing a stride.
