TRIED AND TRUE DESIGN.

EXCITING NEW PERFORMANCE.

THE ORIGINAL FLiK HAS BEEN IN THE FIELD SINCE 2001 AND HAS A LARGE AND LOYAL FOLLOWING.

Longevity, consistent openings, and reliable heading control have made happy FLiK owners all over the globe. When we developed the FLiK II our objective was to maintain the design parameters which made the original so popular while updating a few characteristics to improve overall performance. After extensive research we’ve reshaped the top surface, improved the seam construction, modified internal reinforcements, and reconfigured the nose geometry. What does this mean to you? A more responsive and stable wing with powerful inputs on both risers and toggles with a very strong flare. The reshaped top surface has improved the slow speed flight characteristics for jumpers who love to, or need to, sink into tight, technical landing areas!

The FLiK II is a great all-around canopy for new and seasoned jumpers alike. It’s been rigorously tested in both slider­-up and slider-­off environments.

CANOPY

FEATURES

Every FLiK II is handcrafted from start to finish in our Southern California facility. Before shipping, each unit is given a thorough 535 point quality­-control inspection from an independent Rigger.

I-BEAM CONSTRUCTION WITH SPANWISE REINFORCEMENT

All Apex canopies feature four full spanwise load tapes. These tapes are located at the attachment points of the A, B, and C line groups as well as on the tail seam. Spanwise tapes, paired with our I-Beam construction technique, have helped us create a canopy with an incredibly resilient structural framework perfectly tailored to the high forces applied during deployment, flight, and landing.

CROSSPORTS

Our crossports have been engineered to provide maximum airflow while minimizing the impact that crossports can have on structural integrity and airfoil deformation. The end result? Consistent and reliable pressurization.

TOP LOADING TAIL POCKET

Our proprietary Top Loading Tail Pocket makes line dump malfunctions a thing of the past. For more information, check out the video.

TWO TOGGLE SETTINGS

You mean two brake settings, right? No. We mean two TOGGLE settings. We offer a lengthened toggle setting specifically for slider­up jumps. The additional length in this setting allows a better full flight position when the brake lines are routed through the slider grommets. The second toggle setting is a bit shorter and designed to optimize those familiar slider­off flight characteristics. Both are fixed loops making toggle changes quick and easy. The fixed loops (No more knots!) make it compatible with most releasable toggles, like the WLO and others.

MULTI-2 TAIL POCKET SUPPORT SYSTEM

“Center cell strip” is a phenomenon that has been discussed for years in BASE jumping. What it means, basically, is that your perfect pack job can be wildly distorted when the PC rips your canopy out of the pack tray. Center cell strip is often blamed for off­-headings and poor opening characteristics. A major factor contributing to center cell strip is tail pocket “lag.” More specifically the weight of the tail pocket, and all of your lines, being left behind in the pack tray while your center cell is pulled upward at bridle stretch. Apex has pioneered the solution, keeping the tail pocket ideally positioned throughout your deployment.

TRUE ULTRA LIGHT WEIGHT & LOW VOLUME

Apex has volume tested nearly every BASE canopy from every major manufacturer. With this data in hand we can confidently say that no other manufacturer has been able to match the low pack volumes of our LV and UltraLite canopies. While many manufacturers claim to offer “ultralight” models…there is a huge difference between using a little ultralight material and creating a truly UltraLite product. Please feel free to call us for more details, and we’ll gladly explain why we frequently see heavy and bulky canopies coming through our shop with “ultralight” labels.

LIGHT WEIGHT, LONG LIFE

Our UltraLite products have been tested both in the shop and in the field since 2008 and, by all accounts, they have stood the test of time. We have seen no significant difference in the long­-term permeability of our UL products when compared to normal­-weight canopies. Though the UL material costs a little more, you can be confident that it will last just as long as standard 0-­3 cfm (F­-111 type) fabric.

VTEC BOTTOM SURFACE VENTS

It’s not as simple as asking how many vents a canopy has. The reality is that vents are complicated and their impact on opening speeds will vary greatly depending on vent size and valve construction. Apex has engineered a design using 3 vents spread over 5 cells to provide outstanding inflow characteristics and consistent closure, making it ideal for a wide range of BASE applications.

  • Vtec, 3 vents, Bottom Surface on cells 2, 4, 6
