Description

Fly hard. Land soft. Swoop it. Nail it. Love it. The Crossfire 2 is an elliptical 9-cell on ‘roids—a mid-range hassle-free canopy that’s equally equipped for hauling ass over a swoop pond. Equipped with a fully formed nose and complete surface shaping, this canopy’s openings are second to none and her powerful flare will impress. Offering a modern wing with less drag and stress-free controls, the Crossfire 2 is ideal for both the ultimate hard-charging experience and blissful days of soul flying.

Unparalleled openings, responsive riser inputs and the incredible swoop distance of the Crossfire 2 combine in a wing that’s 100% devoted to the art of having fun.

Crossfire 2 5 out of 5 stars

I recently got the Crossfire 2 after hearing many good things about it from other Crossfire 2 owners. They were right! I really love the soft, on-heading openings. The flight characteristics and landings are good also.


Wingsuit Friendly at 1.35WL-1.4WL 5 out of 5 stars

I have over 10 jumps now on my new crossfire 149 and I have to say the openings are amazing on my Vampire 4! I've had one line twist but it flew out before i could even unzip my arms! With the couple of twists the parachute didn't dive out of control or anything, it remained in a semi straight stable path of flight. Overall the best parachute I have jumped to this day out of the ten previous ones i have flown. So if you have to go elliptical with your WS, get one of these!


A great step up if you're confident under canopy and looking for something more 5 out of 5 stars

Switched from a Pilot to Crossfire 2 loaded at 1.55. The difference is clear from the moment you throw out the pilot chute. I had forgotten what "on-heading" meant until now. Not that the Pilot was bad, but 90-180 was always on the cards no matter what I did with the packjob and now from jump 1 on the crossfire (even having never packed one before and it slipping all over the place as I shoved the new ZP in the bag) it has been dead on every time.
In flight loving the responsiveness (but in no way twitchy) - while brake turns defintely eat up altitude, I've been really impressed by the distance I could get coming back from a long spot on rears (and i am jumping in Russia where it's at -20C so you don't want to land off!). Given the ease of harness inputs, in most cases (particularly if loading it more heavily) you can really leave the brakes alone in flight. When finally you do need the brakes, there is masses of power in the flare - even coming in straight.

Honestly, given that there isn't a manufacturer out there who doesn't claim that all their canopies are the softest, safest, fastest, greatest thing since sliced bread I took the Icarus blurb with a pinch of salt. But all in all the crossfire 2 completely exceeded my expectations on all fronts and is a real pleasure to fly with enough extra performance to push my canopy skills to the next level - can't wait to get back out under it next weekend!
