Performance Designs - Velocity


Performance Designs has again set a new standard with the Velocity. It is designed specifically to satisfy those pilots who have already been jumping high performance elliptical canopies at relatively high wing loadings, for some time, and are looking for something more.

The Velocity is not a canopy for everyone. The Velocity has a wider speed range than any other canopy we have ever seen. You will be amazed at how easy it is to achieve incredibly steep, high speed front riser turns. If long, high speed swoop landings are your thing, the Velocity will really impress you with its ability to turf surf incredible distances, while still allowing you to slow down more than any other canopy of a given size. The Velocity’s landings are so incredible, you will find yourself making jumps just so that you can land it again. The Velocity will allow highly experienced pilots to explore a range of ram air flight never before possible. With its rigid cross braced structure, incredibly clean aerodynamics and almost totally enclosed leading edge, the Velocity is the most advanced ram air wing they have ever offered. If you have been jumping high performance ellipticals for some time and want to explore a greater range of speed and performance, then the Velocity is your canopy.
