If you are an expert wingsuit pilot looking for amazing glide performance and speed then this suit is for you. The X-bird 2 is the 2nd iteration of the record breaking and competition winning X-bird 1. The suit is optimized for long flights, not just to stay in the air longer but also to fly further.
Although well established in skydiving 2010 saw the X-bird become a common site in the BASE scene worldwide, with jumpers being blown away by the suits fast starts, glide performance and overall how easy it was to fly. The myth of slow forward was also dispelled - need speed? Just give the suit more angle.
Dean Potter made the worlds longest BASE jump flying from the Eiger in Switzerland using his X-bird prototype. Dean flew all the way down to the village of Grindelwald, over 5km, staying in freefall for nearly 3 minutes!
Skydivers will be amazed at the range of the suit, from slow & floaty to fast & aggressive.
The X-bird 2 features redesigned arm and leg wings, increasing the total surface area whilst still offering easy handling thanks to the wider leg stance, also the wing trailing edges and booties have been redesigned to reduce drag. The X2 is aimed at pilots focused on performance and BASE jumpers looking for maximum glide. The X2 is a serious competition suit but with practice can also be used for flocking and back flying.
X-bird 2 features
Semi rigid shaped leading edge:the arm wing leading edge incorporates semi-rigid foam inserts to improve the air flow over the arm wing and increase performance.
Escape Sleeve 2:Would you like to be able to reach your toggles without unzipping? With the escape sleeve that is exactly what you can do! There is no need for a release system, thanks to the carefully tailored arm sleeve design you can reach up and immediately grab your risers / toggles after opening. With the release of the Apache suit which utilizes a greater arm sweep angle, the Escape Sleeve has been further refined and updated to allow even easier access to your toggles.
Air locked inlets:Standard on all TonySuits are our industry leading air locked inlets offering fast and rock solid pressurization.
Easy Zip attachment:TonySuits are probably the easiest wingsuits to attach and use thanks to the ingenious side of body zip attachment.
Variable Pressurization :Zips installed in the arm and leg wings allow the amount of pressurization to be varied. By opening the zips the amount of pressurization is reduced, useful for dialing in your suit performance to match a flock or to follow students.
Fast-back:for an extra performance boost the fast back option is available - the fast-back is a large full length deflector that inflates on the back of the suit, streamlining the parachute container form to improve the air flow over the back of the suit. The fast-back has also been re-tailored to allow even cleaner PC access.
Extended Leg Zips (optional):if you have difficulty reaching down to unzip your leg wing then you will find this option useful, the zip pull is extended up the side of the leg making unzipping easier and quicker.
BASE Soles (optional):the BASE sole option is provided for BASE jumpers who wish to have more grip on the exit point. The BASE soles are heavy duty studded rubber pads that are attached to a double layer cordura bootie, ideal for improving your footing on top of the mountain. The "Stealth rubber" is supplied by 5.10, the famous climbing shoe manufacturer - perfect for the job.
Expansion Zips (optional):the expansion zips allow for the size of a suit to changed - ideal for student demo suits and also for jumpers who jump during winter wearing bulky extra clothing
