Icarus - Omega



The Icarus Omega is a 7-Cell, Lightly Elliptical, Zero Porosity, All-Round canopy. It has been designed as a no hassles, RW, Demo Jumping, Fun Accuracy, Fun CRW canopy. It is super easy to use with delicious '7-cell' openings, easy packing and gentle landings. ZP 7-cells have gained popularity because of their ease of use and low baggage factor. They are outperformed on landing by 9-cell (and greater) canopies, but their ease of use is definitely what many people are looking for. The Icarus Omega is a truly elliptical canopy, but the shaping is very light. The planform has been optimized between enhancing the canopy's performance and feel, yet maintaining easy flight characteristics and consistent controlled openings. The Omega's cells vary in width to maintain a constant cell aspect ratio and to consistently control the airfoil shape across the canopy. At lighter wing loadings (below .9 PSF) it is a good student canopy or first canopy or for someone who just wants to take it easy. At heavier wing loadings (up to 1.5 PSF) it will get zippy and fun while maintaining cruizy openings and landings. Being a 7-cell of conventional construction the pack volume is very small. As with all our canopies the Omega is available in any size you choose.
