Slow Opening Snivel Lasts 60+ Seconds!

Posted by Andrew R.

This is intense! Check out one of the early “test” jumps for the new Icarus JFX canopy. It seems they slowed down the openings a bit too much at first, but they’ve got them worked out now. Even Luigi Cani – a parachute test pilot and stuntman – endorses the Icarus JFX canopy: “The JFX is the best overall canopy I have ever jumped. What I like best about the canopy is the way it opens – every time it’s on heading and soft – not too slow and not too sharp…” For more info about Icarus Canopies, visit
