Safire 3 Openings [VIDEO]

Mon 1 February 16

We've been doing a bunch of research and development work on the Safire 3 this summer here in New Zealand.

The question on everyones minds, lips and Facebook profiles is "When will it be released?" and we can't answer that quite yet, but we can tell you a bit about what is coming up with the Safire 3, and what we've been working on

There's been a bunch of different aspects to this project. We started by reshaping the Safire2 completely in our CFD software (the same software we used to design Petra and Leia). We played with different rib designs, powerband designs, openings and brake settings.

The way these projects work is that we test out some shapes in the computer first, then build prototypes and test jump to find something we like the feel of. We play with the openings along the way, build different sizes, and do a shit ton of test jumping. Then at the end we normally have to go back and finalize the openings again to get them just right. Then we give it to other people do shit tons of jumps on and get feedback, make any necessary changes, and figure out all the little manufacturing processes that comes with making a new product.

So far we like the way the Safire 3 openings are coming along!
