EXTreme VX


EXTreme VX
The EXTreme-VX is a 27-cell Elliptical X-braced Tri-cell and is the undisputed highest performing canopy on the planet!

Jumpers have known for years that 9-cell canopies out perform 7-cells. 27 cells out perform 21 cells just the same.

The VX enjoys many of the same design features as the FX with constant aspect ratio varying cell widths, a fully formed nose, zero dynamic distortion etc. 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.

We recommend wing-loadings from 1.8 PSF to 2.4 PSF
