SUBJ: Findings on the JFX Can…


Classified by Jyro, reasons 1.5 (a) and (c)


1. (A) Test Jump Report: The named tester, Brett Neumann, finds the Icarus JFX a pleasure to fly. The opening is staged and smooth. You will find the canopy crisp and responsive.

2. (A) Flight Characteristics: The flight is found to be smooth, predictable and enjoyable.

3. (B) Risers: Front riser pressure is less than that of the JVX, making for easy dive and recovery techniques. Rear riser recovery is more progressive and gradual than the JVX, giving a slower recovery and long dive.  

4. (C)Conclusions: The JFX is an all round performer, consistent in every parameter. If you are participating in RW, Freefly, Canopy Piloting and even Wingsuiting, the JFX is capable!
