AirDesign Fox

AirDesign - Fox (2011)




All you need for speedflying is the FOX. The leading edge has a combination of standard mylar and nylon wires. This provides perfect take-off behavior – even after many flights. You can foot-launch the FOX as well.

The steering is easy to dose and the FOX has excellent flair characteristics. When riding down deep-powder slopes you won’t get airborne too easily. We call it a great balance.

The trimmers work perfectly and give you a speed-range you will not believe, greatly increasing the usability. Open up the trimmers on the Fox and the wing transforms into more of a speedrider - that is versatility at its best!

Like any other speed-rider, the Fox has its best gliding when slowing down with the brakes.

Due to a clever cell-construction the canopy is very stable and free from oscillating movements.
