WinX - 9-cell performance in 7-cell canopy
The latest addition to the Atair canopy range, WinX, is designed for skydivers who need a wing that has soft, consistent and reliable on-heading openings for wingsuit flying, but also enjoy more aggressive, high performance canopy rides.
WinX is a 7–cell zero-P semi-elliptical canopy, built on the quality foundations built by our earlier products; the Radical, a 9-cell elliptical, and Dragon, a tapered 7-cell. The result is a 7-cell canopy that flies like a 9-cell elliptical.
WinX is extremely fun to fly at high wing loadings, being very responsive to toggle input, but at the same time rock stable in straight flight and turns. At light to moderate wing loadings, it’s a great transitional canopy for novice or medium experience skydivers. The great glide performance will bring you home even if the spot was way off, and plenty of lift during the flare enables great, easy landings from a straight in approach.
If you like to swoop, the WinX will be more than happy to oblige. With a low pull force on the front risers, moderate recovery arc and a long, powerful flare, it’s guaranteed to make you smile.
WinX was designed using specialist design software, used to analyze low speed airfoils and wings. With the use of advanced airfoil shaping techniques, it’s possible to transfer a 3D design in to a 2D cut of canopy fabric panels. This results in a parachute that maintains its designed airfoil shape throughout the whole wingspan during flight. These techniques also give a thinner profile, which has resulted in a reduced packing volume.
As with all of our canopies, our class-leading manufacturing standards, and high grade zero porosity fabric guarantee a parachute that will maintain its superb performance for hundreds of jumps.
Note: WinX is NOT a BASE canopy! It is for skydiving use only!
