    Safire 3

    The Safire 3 is the result of five years of research, development and refinement. She is the most modern mainstream all-rounder canopy to hit the market. She’s not just different. She’s a beginner and intermediate wing that let’s you take advantage of parametric design software and Computational Fluid Dynamics technologies used formerly only in high performance wings. She’s been engineered to fly better. More efficiently. More responsively. Safire pilots will find her completely familiar, but entirely revolutionary. She has all the things you love about the Safire 2 – great openings, safe predictable flight, a short recovery arc and a smooth flare – and everything else you asked us for. You wanted the same consistent openings. We made them smoother and more progressive. You wanted to have more range. We made the Safire 3 more efficient and gave you the glide to get back from that long spot. You wanted more fun. We made all her inputs more responsive. You wanted even more flare. We found a balance of more power, without inducing an early stall. The Safire 3 is perfect for your first canopy or a fun intermediate canopy at slightly higher wingloadings. We recommend loading her between 0.8 and 1.5. She’s available in any size you want, so you can load her exactly what you want. If you’re not sure, ask us. Loaded lightly she is the vehicle to carry any beginner or even the most nervous canopy pilot to the ground safely, and for the intermediate jumper she will make your flying experience come alive with quick turns and a powerful flare. If you’re looking for superior opening qualities, outstanding slow flight stability and confidence-inspiring flight, the Safire 3 is your perfect choice. It’s time to take to the sky the way you were meant to – on a 9-cell sports machine that keeps it as real as you do.

    Crossfire 3

    The new Crossfire 3 continues the era of the legendary Crossfire 2 that began in 2001. But she isn't simply a remake - she's a completely new canopy designed from the ground up. The Crossfire 3 was designed with you, the pilot, in mind. From the plain-to-see to the supposedly inconsequential, every detail makes for an effortless and enjoyable flight. Shape, planform, lines: in every component we have invested years of experience, thousands of ideas and countless hours of development. The result? A completely 3D designed canopy with smooth curves and even smoother openings and landings. The Crossfire 3 benefits from the most up to date CAD design tools and CFD technology available, and all the important lessons we learned designing Petra, Leia and the Safire 3. She's the most modern 9-cell sports parachute in our range. The new shaping gives her a massively improved performance range...and she looks prettier than ever.

    Safire 2

    Initiate all-out jumping and packing warfare with the Safire 2! This is a wing designed to be soft where you want it, tough when you need it and easy to fly all-round. A lightly tapered shape, increased glide-ratio and a short recovery arc join forces to make this wing a highly predictable, hassle free beginner to mid-range canopy. The Safire 2’s elliptical planform uses the latest technology without sacrificing the solidarity and safety of a square wing. You can avoid jumping outdated designs with limited performance and fly instead a highly versatile modern wing with responsive flight controls and more range. Loaded lightly she is the vehicle to carry any beginner jumper to the ground safely, and for the intermediate and advanced jumper she will make your flying experience come alive with quick turns and a powerful flare. If you’re looking for superior opening qualities, exceptional glide, outstanding slow flight stability and enhanced safety the Safire 2 is the perfect choice. Between the soft openings and hearty flare you’ve got everything you need to make peace with the sky and the ground.

    JFX

    The JFX is a 21-cell Elliptical ZP Crossbraced canopy. Unlike the JVX, which has been shaped for wicked swooping power and CP competition, the JFX design is simply the highest end everyday canopy we could come up with. Although being fully Crossbraced with the powerful landings, long recovery arcs and efficient flight you'd expect, we've tamed the JFX for piss easy, everyday, low hassle jumping. Now you can have Crossbraced performance with almost Crossfire type ease. Whether you are hard-ass team training, work jumping, doing camera, wingsuit jumping... or just a Jump Hog wanting a bit more welly in your day... this is your sports car! It's not a canopy for light wing loadings, transitioning to a JVX, or to learn on. The JFX is for the already experienced small HP Elliptical 9-cell jumper who couldn't be bothered with a Crossbrace canopy before now. You'll want to load it up slightly compared to an elliptical 9-cell, and it will come alive with more zip. And that gorgeously efficient Crossbrace flare can become either a blazing swoop or use the power for the easiest, gentlest touchdown. Yup, it's more bulky and more expensive than a 9-cell, but it’s worth it! NOTE: Recommended wing loading 1.8 to 2.8 (Yes, you can load it up like a JVX too!)

    Alpha

    The Alpha was NZ Aerosports’ first ZP 9-cell elliptical canopy. It was in the same range as the Stiletto at the time, with a more aggressive dive. We used the Alpha as a platform for the first EXTreme Mark1 (the original version of what became the EXTreme FX). The Crossfire replaced the Alpha in our Icarus Canopies sports range, followed by the Crossfire 2.

    Beta

    The Beta was NZ Aerosports’ first ZP 9-cell square sports canopy. It was in the same range as a Sabre at the time it was available, and had similar flight characteristics. The Safire replaced the Beta as in our Icarus Canopies sports range, and then the Safire 2.

    Matrix 2

    The Daedalus Matrix2 is a next generation 5-cell competitive CF canopy using proven cross brace technology with fewer lines. It opens great, flies solid, handles hard docks and keeps flying no matter what. This wing revolutionizes the idea of how a CRW canopy should land. There is tons of flare even on straight in approaches. The harness is super responsive. The rears have lots of range in them, are easy to land with and give you another powerful tool to use in the air. Aussie CRW Team Ookoonono have been doing 270 to 630 approaches with the wing and say they land almost as well as a crossbraced sports canopy. It's truly the 5-cell that lands like a 9-cell. The trim is not set too steep but the reduced drag still means that the Matrix2 dives more than a 7-Cell. The result is that the wing can be flown efficiently with a small amount of brakes and you just need to release it to accelerate. The canopy is responsive on all inputs, the fronts are light and the rears have tons of power and range. The openings are firm but not slammers and are reliable and consistent with high wing loadings. We know it's a bold move for a conservative market but it's a change we are proud to sign our name to. You've got nothing to lose except a couple of cells!

    Matrix

    The Matrix was a Zero-P, purpose built, competition CRW canopy. It can be configured for rotations or sequential/speed formation. Ultimately the canopy we was based around our New Zealand CRW techniques and background over the 10 years prior to releasing her. After doing CRW with every thing from F-111 220sf 7-Cell canopies to a set of customized ICARUS 95 sf ZP 9-Cells, the Icarus Matrix was our state of the art CRW canopy at the time it was available.

    Icarus Student

    The Icarus Student is a mistake-friendly, fun and forgiving wing, which allows for more consistent flying in all situations. And she’s built tough to withstand rough handling! Safety is more than just reducing injuries – it’s also about prevention. We work under the methodology that easy = safe and safe = easy. ZP construction, Vectran 750 lines, contrasting brake lines and alternating color packing tabs optimize the new Icarus Student for durability and ease of use. Your students will be safer, for longer. We gave her a 9-cell planform and modern shaping to make her responsive and increase predictability and – voila! – a student canopy that students will actually enjoy flying. This results in more confidence throughout the learning curve and unlocks faster progression. Her flare is powerful and super forgiving to let new skydivers spend more time concentrating on progressing and less time with their faces embedded in the dirt.

    Petra

    Whatever you thought you knew about canopies, hit reset. Petra signals a first for NZ Aerosports and canopy piloting: the hyper performance wing. Petra is the arrival of a game-changing adjustment in the way we think about flying our parachutes. With a high roll rate, a long recovery arc and high maximal glide ratio, Petra delivers unrivalled power in the turn, plane out and flare. Combined with a highly elliptical planform and very high sweep, a record-breaking wing is born. Petra came out with a bang in 2011, winning world records, international titles, and turning swooping stars into super stars almost overnight. At her debut event PD Big Boys Pants in 2011, Petra smashed the World Distance Record with a 222.45m distance run flown by Nick Batsch. In the years since she has wonthe Nationals in France, Australia, Italy, USA, and the European Champs. She set many official records in Distance including the French, Australian, European and World Records. Petra is a professional tool for pilots who fly for food. If you don't have a coach to ask if you're ready, then you're not ready. This wing is a custom, special order item with options not found anywhere else in the industry. Put your name on the list today and get one step closer to everything you need to put you on the medal table.

    Leia

    For terminal or sub-terminal, both downwind and into wind, at home and in competition, I will fly you and love you for as long as we both shall swoop. Leia is not a canopy built to the standards of a mere workhorse, but to the impossibly high standards of a modern competition canopy. From her sleek computer engineered 21-cell design to her sexy airfoil and HMA400 lines, she is not just the world’s ultimate ZP canopy. She is your ultimate everyday swoop wing. The result? She’s soft where you want her and strong where you need her. A canopy that can be jumped anytime hassle-free and can also kick ass over the pond like nothing you’ve ever seen. Made for highly skilled pilots to fly with everyday, she is not a toy – she’s a weapon. The all-new Leia. Fall in love.

    Crossfire 2

    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.

    JVX

    Nil wind days over the swoop pond are always memorable: they are either epic reminders of why you jump out of planes to go at mach 10 speed just above the ground, or they are painful lessons of why you need a competition wing like the JVX. The JVX is made to be flown by experienced pilots; she has better openings than other canopies in her class, and improved trim and longer lines keep her diving for longer. With no stabilizers and HMA lines the JVX just keeps on flying. This wing loves speed, but is built for power and excels at going the distance. Imagine yourself dragging water every day. The JVX isn’t just suitable for competition, but also as a high-end everyday canopy for experienced and current pilots. If you’re a competitive swooper or an experienced jumper wanting a rush, the JVX is a ridiculously epic ending to your skydive.

    Safire

    The Icarus Safire is an all Zero-Porosity, 9-Cell, Lightly Elliptical canopy featuring Vectran™ suspension line. It has been designed as an all round, no hassle performance canopy. The Safire gives you a solid 9-cell performance and a modern elliptical flavor, without getting radical and without requiring any special attention. It is delightfully easy to fly, with consistent openings, easy packing and excellent landing qualities.

    Crossfire

    The Icarus Crossfire is a High Performance Elliptical ZP 9-cell canopy designed specifically for experienced ram air pilots. The Crossfire is Highly and Truly elliptical in its planform shaping on both the leading and trailing edges. The cells vary in width across the canopy maintaining a constant cell aspect ratio to control distortion, and drooped wing tips are incorporated to minimize wingtip drag.

    EXTreme-VX

    The EXTreme-VX is a 27-cell Elliptical X-braced Tri-cell that brings HP canopy performance to the next step. As with all the Icarus range it is available in any size. The VX is not going to replace the FX, but for those turf surf purists who's prime objective is to glean the last available performance from their canopy, rather than the focus being cost or pack volume - This can be your ultimate weapon of choice.
