WinX – 9-cell performance in a 7-cell Canopy
The WinX is an excellent choice for novice, intermediate and experienced canopy pilots involved in multiple disciplines of skydiving. A favourite of wing suit pilots, the WinX delivers soft, consistent and reliable on-heading openings whilst still being capable of a more aggressive and high performance canopy flight.
WinX is a 7–cell zero-P semi-elliptical canopy. Due to this design, the WinX 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 is 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.
The WinX is available in a ZP, PN9 and Hybrid fabric configuration. See additional options below.
Made entirely from ZP material. It packs similar to other 7 cell skydiving canopies, maybe 5% smaller. It has Vectran lines as standard.
Packs one size smaller and it is made from ZP on top skin, end ribs and Lightweight PN9 on inner ribs and bottom skin. It has thinner Spectra lines.
Made from lightweight material and a ZP leading edge is added. It will pack 2x 3x smaller than the regular ZP WINX. It has thinner Spectra lines.
