We are proud to introduce our new tandem canopy - The TX2!
Dropzone owners and tandem instructors are agreeing that the TX2 is the best possible tool for any tandem operation. Years of testing and innovation have been assembled in this completely new TX2 design that will be the top choice for instructors, riggers, DZOs, packers and passengers alike.
Recommended Wing Loading: 0.67 psf - 1.61 psf
|Size (Sq. Ft.)||Real Size (Sq. Ft.)||MSW (Lbs)||Canopy Weight (Lbs)|
|The launch of the S-Fire a few months earlier introduced the world to innovative design features such as Parabolic Reinforcement Tapes (PRT), 2ⁿᵈ generation of Enhanced Ram Air Stabilizers (ERAS²), and Shape Correlation for Inlet Distribution (SCID). ICARUS has integrated these elements of using the elasticity of the fabric to its’ advantage which in turn eliminates upper surface distortion and airfoil deformation, and eradicating panel flutter while simultaneously reducing the wing tip vortices are just the beginning. |
Consistently soft on-heading openings of 900+ feet are a feature that was at the forefront when designing this wing. SCID has made each TX2 naturally inflate from the center cell outward, which results in consistent on-heading openings and no need to compensate with stretchable lines. This is a key for instructors and passengers to enjoy their experience and be able to jump numerous times day after day, year after year. We realize the importance of a comfortable reliable opening sequence every time.
The TX2 is incredibly reactive to control input and gives more feedback through turns while allowing the pilot to feel a stronger connection to the wing. There is light control line pressure, so this allows for a preferred experience by passengers as well as instructors.
The Reduced Drogue Loading System is one of the highlights of this system. It is an intelligent design to carry the loads generated by the drogue, while bypassing the canopy structure itself. Two lines routed through the canopy actually transfer the load directly to the central suspension lines, which avoids stressing the canopy fabric during deployment. Less stress on the wing and less reinforcement of the drogue attachment point results in more durability and decreased canopy weight and bulk!
The TX2 was created through a 3D planform design, and doesn’t fall short with regards to impressive glide and a short recovery arc. Both the crossport reinforcements and the change in the line set configuration due to the ERAS² actively extend the life of the wing as well. The TX2 is available in the standard 6&2 Brake Configuration without a brake setting, which eases the packing process.
The TX2 is clearly the reliable, durable and superior choice for your operation.
