Icarus Extreme VX.

The EXTreme-VX is a 27-cell Elliptical X-braced Tri-cell and is one of the highest performing canopies on the planet! 

The VX enjoys many of the same design features as the FX including constant aspect ratio varying cell widths, a fully formed nose, and zero dynamic distortion. The pack volume is around 5% greater than the FX or 25% greater than a conventionally constructed 9-cell. This is easily overcome with even smaller sizing as the canopy begs to be loaded at least five to ten percent more heavily than the FX.

The extra rigidity in the canopy through both narrower cell spans and broader angles in the cross braces gives the canopy an even crisper more ridged feel – even more than the EXTreme-FX.

Bulge distortion is minimized dramatically, with the canopy retaining its shape so well that any cross section of the canopy will show a maximum airfoil distortion of only 8.75% from the desired shape. This compares to 11.5% on 21 cell X-Braced designs and over 20% on conventional 9-cells.

The VX is primarily a competition wing; designed to swoop massive distances and fly at ballistic speeds for turf-surf purists whose prime objective is to grasp the last shred of performance from their canopy.

The VX is available in any size you choose as a custom order. You can pick a VX from the stock list at this link. And then note size and/or stock identifier above.
