The Strix 2 is aimed at advanced wingsuit pilots who want a high performance all round suit for skydiving and basejumping. The strix is a hybrid design based on our experience with the vampire range. Offering high agility, but also offering backflying and basic acrobatic flight characteristics.
The Strix offers a good balance of performance and fun, ideal for those wanting a wingsuits with a bigger surface area, yet still retaining the flight characteristics that make a suit easy and fun to fly.
The surface area of the Strix was designed with speed and performance in mind, while retaining the agility Phoenix-Fly suits are known for. Proven top of its class in high precision flying.
On the Strix 2 we added to the inflated cells with an improved airlock system.
Like its predecessor, tailwind inflation while backflying remains rigid and without flutter, regardless of angle or speed. We also modified the internal foam leading edge, to form the ultimate knife edge, cutting into the relative wind while providing maximum lift. A 3 degree change in arm wing sweep gives the suit a steeper angle of attack, resulting in a higher flying speed and increased flare capability.
An overall increase in flying speed and handling without an increase in surface size.
Notable the foam edge does not inhibit deployment or limit access to the BOC in any way. Safety is always top priority. Never letting customer safety take a backseat in our design philosophy.
The suit offers smooth flying and trouble free inflation on both belly and back.
For base the high performance, as well as smooth and easy starts make the suit an ideal choice for those looking for a big surface all-rounder.
The Strix has a lots of range at the high end for when you want to fly fast and flat. Optional air locked back vents together with a carefully balanced suit, ensure excellent back flying performance. The Strix is also the perfect platform for camera flyers and/or XRW pilots who are looking to expand their range. Be it on belly or back the suit is easy to fly, at incredible forward speeds.
The Strix is made to the same high standards as all Phoenix-Fly products, utilizing high grade materials and robust double stitching seam construction (as used for canopy manufacturing). Like all suits in the Phoenix-Fly range, The Strix will be custom made to order, tailored to your measurements. It comes standard with chest pocket, backfly inlets and performance foam. Optional are 5/10 base soles and tail, leg and side pockets for (alpine) base and equipment storage during flight.
We advise a minimum of 200 wingsuit jumps for those interested in flying the Phoenix-Fly Strix, with transitional experience on intermediate class suits recommended.
