The lightly-tapered 9-cell Silhouette is designed to provide responsive handling, even at lower wing loadings often preferred by more conservative pilots. If you're looking for a docile, ‘no fuss’ canopy ride, the Silhouette is a great option for you. Due to the combination of fabrics used in the design, it is easy to pack, provides consistent openings with a short snivel, and has lots of flare power. It is best known for having a flat glide, short recovery arc, and easy-to-time flare. The Silhouette is a good choice for those seeking a canopy that is practical yet fun to fly.
