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. Our development work with the Crossfire 2 has 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.
