Fluid Wings announces the Prime, a 9-cell hybrid main wing.
Production on the Prime is to begin June 1st, 2014. The Prime, a 9-cell hybrid main wing built for fun, predictable flying and easy packing, will initially be available in sizes from 150-190 sq. ft. and stock colors, with a full range of sizes and custom color options to follow. Perfect for newer jumpers and cutting edge wingsuiters alike, the standard model is constructed of a combination of zero-porosity (zero-p) and low porosity nylon. It ships with Vectran® lines and soft-link connectors. A low-bulk option packing up to a full size smaller is also available—new jumpers just learning to wrangle nylon will be especially appreciative, but anyone who’s experienced the joy of a hot summer day of packing can take advantage!
“The Prime is responsive and playful, while still easy to manage. It has a good glide for those long spots, with a nice strong flare for tip-toe landings,” said Scott Roberts of Fluid Wings. “We like her a lot and think jumpers will too!”
The Prime will retail for $2090 with all options. Demos of the Prime can be requested via email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Sales are direct through the company until the Fluid Wings dealer network is fully developed; interested dealers may contact email@example.com.
