Icarus S Fire Main Parachute Canopy.
Icarus Canopies is proud to introduce the new S Fire! The new Safire. So much better that they gave it a new name.
For the past 15 years the Safire 2 has been one of the all around best canopies of its class…. until now.
The S Fire is the next iteration of the wildly successful Safire 2, and while still geared towards beginner/intermediate jumpers, Icarus has taken it further.
Icarus stayed true to the essence of what made the Safire 2 top of it’s class. The elliptical 9 cell with a light shaping, a constant cell aspect ratio, with sweet consistent on-heading openings. A forgiving canopy with a powerful flare and responsive controls. However, after years of testing and engineering Icarus enhanced the Safire to make an ultimately superior wing in the S Fire.
The S Fire introduces a number of innovative design features such as Parabolic Reinforcement Tapes (PRT), 2ⁿᵈ generation of Enhanced Ram Air Stabilizers (ERAS²), and Shape Correlation for Inlet Placement (SCIP) that makes it the most advanced design in the market. PRT allows the S Fire to use the elasticity of the fabric to its’ advantage - successfully eliminating upper surface distortion and airfoil deformation and creating a smoother top skin which gives you the glide to get you where you want to go. ERAS² eliminates panel flutter while simultaneously reducing the wing tip vortex to save and use energy for maximum flight performance. SCIP controls the inflation process of the canopy ensuring constant deceleration and consistent on-heading openings.
An optimized span wise skeleton ensures the robustness of the canopy even in the most demanding loading conditions and ensures that the S Fire is a structurally superior canopy throughout the entire range of sizes. The newly developed line set configuration will last even longer than before with the same line elongation resulting is less performance deterioration without sacrificing responsiveness.
The S Fire possess an increased range of performance, therefore the it will be able to be flown longer before the progression to a Crossfire takes hold, something all pilots will be on board with!
Icarus has taken everything you loved about the Safire canopies and given it an upgrade by streamlining this wing and removing wasted energy - creating a rigid wing that is more efficient than we thought possible. These structural improvements allow the S Fire to have a smoother, cleaner airfoil, positive and dynamic flight characteristics and more canopy control. The S Fire allows you to use your rears with ease and experience a huge low end and powerful flare. At a higher wingloading it becomes a different animal, as a result expert canopy pilots don’t want to give it back!
Recommended for wing loadings from .75 PSF to 1.9 PSF. Standard sizes: 99, 109, 119, 129, 139, 149, 169, 189, 209 and 229.
You can pick one from the stock list at this link. And then note size and/or stock identifier above.
The S Fire is available in any size you choose as a custom order at no extra cost. For custom colors, complete your design at this link and then select ChutingStar Enterprises, Inc. from the drop down menu under United States and Georgia.
Turnaround times for stock canopy orders is approximately 1-2 weeks. Turnaround time for custom canopies varies frequently, so contact us for the current turnaround time.
