Skipper

MSRP $1,650 USD

 

Skipper offers:

  • soft and consistent openings

  • easy and safe controls

  • moderate descend and sufficient horizontal speed

  • high stability in turbulent air

  • good flare

  • low packing volume

 

Remarkable performance data were achieved due to use of the unique in its class technological solutions:

  • high, as for 7-cell, aspect ratio

  • planform similar to that of 9-cell canopies

  • special design of air intakes, that reduces deformation of the skin

 

With wing loadings of 1.3 or below Skipper can be recommended to the beginners. At higher loadings it becomes notably more responsive on the toggles, but stays docile enough for a skydiver of average skills. Skipper gives consistently stable and comfortable openings, sought by cameramen and wingsuit pilots.

Recommended wing loading range of Skipper is 1.1 – 1.7 lb/sq.ft. Wing loading for the best flight performance is in the range of 1.3 – 1.5 lb/sq.ft.

Skipper is made of ZP fabric in following sizes 110, 120, 130, 140, 150, 160, 170 and 190 sq.ft. The canopy is equipped with Vectran lines, collapsible slider with stainless grommets and comes with a set of soft links.
