Crossfire2, the ULTIMATE high performance 9 cell: Unparalleled Exciting Performance!
The Icarus Crossfire2 is a 9 cell non-cross braced canopy. The Crossfire2 is a High Performance Elliptical ZP 9-cell canopy designed specifically for experienced ram air pilots.
The Crossfire is Highly and Truly elliptical in its planform shaping on both the leading and trailing edges. The cells vary in width across the canopy maintaining a constant cell aspect ratio to control distortion, and drooped wing tips are incorporated to minimize wingtip drag.
The Crossfire openings are among the most consistent and comfortable "stress free" openings available. The turns are very snappy and the canopy has a large recovery arc enabling it to dive for a long time and making it very easy to pick up speed. The flare is powerful and only exceeded by Cross Braced Tri-Cell Canopies like the EXTreme FX & VX.
When Icarus released the ICARUS Crossfire, they revolutionized what was possible with a 9 cell non-cross braced canopy. Its swoop capability almost rivaled cross-braced canopies while maintaining a long recovery arc and unparalleled openings.
Crossfire 2 Characteristics
The Crossfire 2 shares the same impressive capabilities as its predecessor, plus some of the most responsive toggle and riser control inputs of any canopy in the market. It has a light front riser pressure and an even longer recovery arc. A highly elliptical planform, constant cell aspect ratio, closed nose, and fully shaped surfaces make this inflatable wing capable of unrivaled performance. It will out-perform any non cross-braced 9 cell available.
The ICARUS Crossfire 2 is a high performance elliptical ZP 9-cell canopy designed specifically for experienced ram air pilots. Its highly innovative planform design is truly elliptical in both leading and trailing edges. All nine cells vary in width across the canopy maintaining a constant cell aspect ratio to control distortion.
Unlike any other 9-cell, the Crossfire 2 nose is partially formed to give the canopy a more efficient leading edge. Its advanced nose design not only improves the aerodynamics, it also assists in controlling the openings. The diagonal structure of the nose also provides support to the non-loaded ribs during flight creating further rigidity at the leading edge and reducing distortion during the flare.
A major problem with previous high performance elliptical canopies had been 'diving off heading' openings. Icarus development work with the Crossfire 2 reduced this dramatically. The Crossfire 2 openings are among the most consistent and comfortable 'stress free' openings available. The turns are snappy and the canopy has a large recovery arc; allowing it to dive for a long time and easily pick up speed when required. The flare is as powerful as you will find.
The RESULT is an AERODYNAMIC WING with LESS DRAG, INCREASED RIGIDITY and MORE LIFT offering a greater performance than other 9 cells at both low and high speeds.
The ICARUS Crossfire 2, an impressively balanced, no hassle high performance wing, truly elliptical, ZP 9-Cell, no cross-bracing or valve systems, fully formed nose, superb openings, impressive landings...!

- Possibly the best elliptical conventional canopy ever made.
I love mine completely. It's got a ton of flare power, opens like a dream and will get you back to right where you want to land with no drama. It isn't cross-braced so it doesn't have that kind of flare power but or a conventional it is damn good. You don't have to spend forever packing it which is great if you're a working jumper. I fly a 109 loaded at about 1.8 for reference and this is my first Crossfire2 after several other canopies but I wish I had been on this one all along (except for not as a first canopy that is). Icarus didn't try to make this model as radical as possible and while you can get an incredible amount of performance out of it the hints of docile-ness show in all the right places.
