The Crossfire. Our identity. A truly unique design. Now completely redone in the new Crossfire 3. This is how we do justice to the Crossfire legend.
Unparalleled openings, a longer recovery arc and incredible swoop distance combine in a 9-cell fully elliptical wing that's 100% devoted to the art of having fun.
If you're ready to step it up a notch from your Safire or want to upgrade your Crossfire 2, the Crossfire 3 is for you. She's fun to fly at docile wingloadings between 1.0 and 1.4 for the confident intermediate pilot, but we recommend a wingloading between 1.5 and 2.0 for maximum performance.
Simply put, the Crossfire 3 is the all-round maestro from the Icarus Canopies range. She will have you flying long and high, turf surfing, or coming in hot for your first swoops across the pond.
It's time to take to the sky the way you were meant to, on a 9-cell sports machine that keeps it as real as you do.
How is it different? The Crossfire 3 is completely designed in 3D, using the same advanced CAD and CFD technology pioneered with Petra and Leia. She has a new planform shape, new rib shape, new crossport design, Powerband split leading edge, new end-cell, new stabilizer shape, and a new trim.
How is it better? Every detail is fine tuned to eliminate drag and create a more efficient wing. You get the same soft, on-heading, reliable openings the Crossfire 2 is known for, but now you also have more range, more responsive inputs, a more aggressive dive, and the longer recovery arc everyone has been asking for.
Who is it for? The Crossfire 3 will replace the Crossfire 2. At light wingloadings of 1.0-1.4 she is suitable for confident intermediate jumpers moving up from the Safire onto elliptical 9-cells. At higher wingloadings of 1.5 and above she's an all new machine for pilots already flying small/highly loaded Crossfire2's or other elliptical 9-cells. She's a step up in performance. She whips around, dives hard, recovers slow and eats up the ground in a swoop. She is perfect for advanced pilots who want a hassle-free non-crossbraced canopy.
