With great openings and a powerful flare, the Storm is truly a 7-cell that thinks it's a 9-cell. While in some ways similar to the Spectre, the Storm has a shorter snivel, a steeper and faster glide, wider speed range, and more dynamic flare. Looking for a reliable canopy that will keep you challenged? Have you been searching for the perfect wingsuit canopy? Considering some occasional CF, but not ready to buy a second canopy? The Storm is a great option for you.

Storm 135 5 out of 5 stars new

Review by: ParaSEXas, 2016-10-19

Ive done around 400 jumps on Storm 135 loading it at 1.65, before that i had Spectre 150 for 300+ jumps and in between i jumped Spectre 120 for 100 jumps and 135 for 10 jumps.

I love my 7 cells and soft ish mostly on heading openings. I chose to stay on 7 cell so i don't chage the flight characteristics radicly between sky and base.

So Storm against the Spectre. Storm is much softer openings at higher wing loading. 120 spectre pretty much every opening came say pretty brisk. Storm how ever only spanked me once, very randomly. Storm's fronts is so much heavier compared to Spectre. The little 'swoop' distance is similar between storm 135 and spectre 120, speed how ever speed is greater on spectre. I just received brand new Storm 120 so i will be able to compare that soon. I load 120 at 1.86. Also both my stoms i got with casual CReW kit so it kinda pack nearly a size up from normal spectre but similar ish to 120 9cell.

Opening heading is quite questionable. It's more like safire, it snivel snivel and then...randomly goes 90+ any direction. Not a biggie, but not as good as spectre by country mile. Softness, better than spectre and higher loadings. Line twist, had 2 in 400 jumps, 1 just random flat 360, not a big deal, one due to user error (don't even ask) ended up up in a lot of diving twists. Would it have been spectre most likely i could have fixed it, storm, no chance. Once it goes, it f@&in goes. Good job i do my ownn reserves! Fonts, very hard compared to spectre, but im not big swooper. Deffo a canopy for camera work. Great range, reliable and soft openings. Heading how ever is sometimes questionable...

Stay tuned for 120 loading at 1.86 review... :)


Storm 170 4 out of 5 stars

Review by: BornToThrill, 2014-12-24

I've read reviews about all the on heading openings this canopy has and it's very true. Canopy does open soft and on heading every time (so far). It flys well and is a little sporty. It's almost like a suped up Spectre but not quite a Sabre2. In my own opinion, it has a weird attack angle and takes few jumps to perfect the timing on the flare. With the flare, there is soo much power in the last 6 inches. You really have to dig deep on your flare on days with no wind. Maybe it's just me.

Overall, good canopy for anyone who wants something a step up from a Spectre. I only hear good things about this canopy from the wingsuiters as well.

Why Storm 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: achansen, 2013-09-29

This is the canopy that merges all of the good things from a Spectre and Sabre2 together. It is either a more dynamic Spectre or a better opening Sabre2 depending on where you are coming from. The majority of my jumps are under a Stiletto. Moving into this canopy was a bit of a change. This canopy requires a lot more toggle input to do the same thing partly due to how thick the Storm is. (top skin to bottom) That said there is plenty of bottom end in this canopy to handle no wind and high wing loads. I'm at 1.33 jumping into a 5,000 ft. MSL landing area with no problems. I don't swoop but the canopy responds very well to riser input. No buffeting. PD done good.
