R-Bird 2 - General Flocking Performance

The R-Bird 2 (RB2) has to be the most popular first-owned wingsuit. This wingsuit has a funny origin-story (you can read more about in the blog) because it was designed and built to be a beginner competition wingsuit. However, it performs so well that it was banned from that category and can only be used in the Advanced competition level. But don't let that drive scare you, there's a reason that everyone get's the R-Bird 2 as their first-owned wingsuit, it's a great all-around wingsuit that will take you where you need to go. It's got the speed when you need to go fast, the performance when you need to move, and the balance for flocking and back-flying.

Design

The arm wing design has been optimized to increase surface area whilst keeping the suit light and intuitive to fly. The leg wing size is moderate, the stance is wider but without being an uncomfortable. The wing profile has been selected to work well in both orientations as well as at steep angles and with most of the lift coming from close to the body is less tiring on long flights

The R-bird 2 is for pilots interested in flocking & fun flying but also in performance and BASE looking for a suit that is easy to use and fly.

Highlights

The R-bird 2 is aimed at advanced pilots interested in flocking & fun flying but also in performance and for BASE jumpers looking for a suit that is easy to use and fly. The R-bird 2 is also great for back flying and acrobatics thanks to improved wing shaping.

R-Bird 2 Features

Escape Sleeve

Reach your toggles without unzipping. There is no need for a release system, thanks to the carefully tailored arm sleeve design you can reach up and immediately grab your risers/toggles after opening

Air Locked Inlets

Standard on all TonySuits are our industry leading air locked inlets offering fast and rock solid pressurization.

Easy Zip Attachment

TonySuits are probably the easiest wingsuits to attach and use thanks to the ingenious side of body zip attachment.

Pressurization

Zips installed in the arm and leg wings allow the amount of pressurization to be varied. By opening the zips the amount of pressurization is reduced, useful for dialing in your suit performance to match a flock or to follow students.

Fast Back

For an extra performance boost the fast back option is available - the fast-back is a large full length deflector that inflates on the back of the suit, streamlining the parachute container form to improve the air flow over the back of the suit. The fast-back has also been re-tailored to allow even cleaner PC access.

Extended Leg Zips

If you have difficulty reaching down to unzip your leg wing then you will find this option useful, the zip pull is extended up the side of the leg making unzipping easier and quicker.

Base Booties

The BASE sole option is for BASE jumpers who wish to have more grip on the exit point. The BASE soles are heavy duty studded rubber pads that are attached to the normal leather bootie, ideal for improving your footing on top of the mountain.

Expansion Zips

The expansion zips allow for the size of a suit to changed - ideal for student demo suits and also for jumpers who jump during winter wearing bulky extra clothing.
