Infinity floating laterals for wingsuiting

Recommended Posts

I’m considering an Infinity rig and would like to try the floating laterals option. How bad would it be for the wingsuit?
My current Wings has cut-in laterals and besides a little distortion I don’t think it is a big deal for the suit. OTOH I’m afraid the floating laterals could cause extra tension since there are 2 straps spread in an angle.
