The World Speed Record is Ours!

Sun 18 May 14

Nick Bastch has done it again. Just back from injury and right away he's back on his game and swooping not only a brand new Distance World Record of 175.45m, but also a World Speed Record of 2.034 seconds!

He was flying a speed specific wing we've been working on called Sofia. She is designed using Computational Fluid Dynamics, and uses Petra Technology with some adjustments that tailor her just for Speed runs. We're excited for what's in the future of this great new canopy.

We've never held the Speed world record before, and we've been chasing it for years. It was even on our New Year's Resolutions for 2014.

We are really proud of Nick and the hard work he puts into his swooping. This is next level stuff! Congratulations buddy!
