Re: [JohanW] Smaller Triathlons at high wingloadings

Thanks for your reply, Johan!

I am comfortable with higher wingloadings, my everyday canopy is @2.8 (admittedly, that's on x-braced canopies). But I am also very comfortable with 9-cell (sabre2) 120 sq ft @~2.1:1.

Also, this would not be a canopy for CRW, it would be for wingsuits. Triathlon 135 @1.7 in my experience flew quite well, but a 99 @ 2.5 or a 120 @2 (what it would be now for me) might not...

The reason i am asking the question on this forum is because i know CReW folks fly a lot of Triathlons and at rather heavy wingloadings... was hoping some were crazier than the average dawg and have tried it at this high of a loading :)
