Description

PD Comp Velocity: Contact us if you need additional canopy information or help with choosing the correct type and size of canopy before placing the order online.


From the inventors of the patented crossbraced canopy, once again PD is raising the bar in high performance canopy piloting. PD has come a long way since the Excalibur of 1989 to bring you the Competition Velocity. This time PD designed a canopy purely for the competitive swooper. Will you be looking up at the podium, or standing on it? In the exciting discipline of Canopy Piloting, a fraction of a second or an extra meter can make the difference between being a hero... or a zero. Technique, determination, practice, persistence, and talent are essential. What else makes the vital difference? The relentless power of the Competition Velocity. The podium is right there... Will you be on it?


The Comp Velocity from Performance Designs. Complete with collapsible slider and 300 or 500 Orange Vectran, or 500 HMA, suspension lines with 750 for the lower steering lines. Optional configuration available with RDS slider.


The new Orange Vectran from PD yields a longer line life than HMA line previously used on the Comp Velocity, is smaller in size/diameter than comparable sized HMA and Is more resistant to abrasion and maintains its strength better than comparable sized HMA.


Immediately after the release of the Velocity in 1999, PD continued its research on design technology with the goal of exceeding what they had accomplished with the Velocity. PD thought "out of the box" on much of the research, changing stabilizers or eliminating them altogether, adding two to four cells, trying new bracing technology, new airfoils and planform shapes. Many of these changes did improve performance, and to put it mildly, some didn't. The culmination of those last ten years of research and development has brought on the release of the Competition Velocity.


Highlights include Low Drag Line attachment points, Low-Profile PCA, 300/500 Orange Vectran or 500 HMA, RDS or Collapsible Slider and performance improvements in the design. This is not a replacement of the Velocity, but a higher-performance canopy with extra standard features for competition canopy pilots. With the standard setup of 500 HMA line and Collapsible Slider, the Comp Velocity has shown to be a step up for everyday Velocity pilots looking for a bit more performance. The openings are easier and have less “side to side” vibration during the snivel, the rear risers are more responsive, and the toggles produce better slow flight characteristics which leads to longer swoops and softer touchdowns.


Available in sizes of 71, 79, 84, 90, 96, 103 and 111 square feet.
