Shadow Edge € 1180* INCL. VAT.

The shadow edge wingsuit is extensively used by athletes at the artistic flying wingsuit competitions and it is the premium acrobatic-machine available on the market. The phoenix-fly acro wingsuit was the very first true acrobatic wingsuit available on the market, featuring rear inlets for back flying and rw style leg grips for docking.

Our 2015 update from the tried and tested Shadow 2 features refined aerodynamic wing shape and improved inlet design, giving the suit an edge in performance and agility.

Today our acrobatic wingsuit offering is the Shadow Edge and it builds on the incredible versatile Phantom 3 platform and lessons learned with the Acro design. Packing all the power of the Phantom 3, the Shadow Edge provides the pilot with optimal agility and manoeuvrability due to straight line wing lines and hands-free flying position. The Shadow Edge allows for very intuitive flying, performing sharp turns, solid carves, rolls, dives and swoops.
While directly targeting the acrobatic flying discipline, Shadow 2 also offers limitless opportunities for pilots interested in flocking, freestyle flying and B.A.S.E. The suit is easy to control during exit and flight, and the gripperless armwing design make for an easy pull.

The Phoenix-Fly Shadow Edge is rated for all experience levels and suitable for use in first flight courses.

World-class acrobatic capabilities

Shadow Edge matrix

Material choice: Parapak / Cameroon
We use various fabrics on our wingsuits, with thicker and more sturdy fabric in reenforced areas such as the knees and booties.

Standard we make the entire suit of the more sturdy Parapak material. Especially for skydiving, this is a recommendable option to deal with the additional wear and tear of airplane floors and repeated packing. For basejumping we also offer Cameron Ultra Light fabric. This slick fabric has good low drag characteristics and is 25% lighter than normal Zero-P. The fabric also is more durable and sturdy compared to normal ZP

Color options
PARAPAK: Black, Grey, Dark Grey, Green, White, Neon Green (400 DIN), Navy Blue, Orange, Purple, Red, Yellow, Adrenalin Blue, Royal Blue, Pink, Baby Pink

CAMEROON: Black, White, Grey, Adrenalin Blue, Red, Royal Blue, Orange, Silver

STITCHING: Grey, Dark Grey, Green, White, Navy Blue, Orange, Purple, Red, Yellow, Adrenalin Blue, Royal Blue, Pink

ZIPPERS: Black, White, Red, Royal Blue, Orange, Yellow, Pink, Adrenalin Blue, Green

NOTE: We no longer offer balloon ZP as a material choice

Performance Foam
Phoenix-Fly offers performance foam in the sleeve of all products.

This pre-formed leading edge was designed for the Vampire line of products and has now made it’s way into all other products. The foam makes sure the leading edge is always rounded and smooth, combined with the formfitting shape of the arm-sleeve meaning sharp flying due to the low-drag characteristics of our suits. The foam also takes some pressure of the arm, and gives the wing a more solid feel in flying.

Using molded foam, Phoenix-Fly offers a custom shaped leading edge on all its suits. For the small to intermediate sized suits, this comes as an option, and for our high performance range, it comes standard. The preshaped leading edge increases airfoil efficiency and flying speed due to better aerodynamics.

How to order

To start, select your new wingsuit based on your experience level and the type of flying you enjoy and are likely to do the most.

Each wingsuit in our range features a description on this site that will give you a good idea as to which one best fits your needs. If you’re not sure which wingsuit is for you, or you just want some advice, send us an email directly or contact one of our many field representatives for more information.

Once you’ve decided on the right wingsuit for you, there are three ways in which you can place your order.

Order through the website – Color Designer
You can opt to order your wingsuit through the Phoenix-Fly color designer. Simply input the various options, sizes and your personal information. The color designer will then generate a digital PDF form that you can email directly to
orders@phoenix-fly.com. We will send an order confirmation when we receive your email.

Order through the website – PDF
There is a digital PDF order form available for each wingsuit in our range. By downloading the latest (free) version of Adobe Acrobat Reader, you can open and digitally fill out this order form, save it, then email the completed form to
orders@phoenix-fly.com. We will send an order confirmation when we receive your email.

Order through a dealer
You can place your order through our vast global network of trained field representatives and dealers.

They will assist you with your measurements, provide detailed product information, complete all the paperwork and then submit your order. If you place your order through a dealer they will become your point of contact throughout. If you have any questions about your order, your should contact your dealer directly, not Phoenix-Fly as they will be better placed to answer your query. To find a dealer near you, please see the tab ‘Dealer Network’.

Important
Orders received will be put in the production queue in the order they are received and built to information on the order form. Only the written part of the form is referenced during construction. Please make sure that your order is only submitted once final and that colours stick to the available pattern. If you are ordering a custom logo design with your suit, submit all files (in vector format) together with the order and a mock-up of the design. Incomplete orders will not be put in the system to ‘hold’ a position in the production queue.

If an order is updated or changed after being submitted, we will reset the order to the date of the last received order/client contact.
So be sure to only submit completed and finalized orders to prevent further delays.

Lead time and Rush orders
The current lead time on a new Phoenix-Fly suit is around 7-8 weeks.

This is always only a rough indication, and no guarantee, as a sudden surge in orders can update/change the lead time substantially.

Depending on how long the queue is, Phoenix-Fly offers a rush order service for those in immediate need of a wingsuit. This cuts production in time by half.  When lead time exceeds 10 weeks we are unable to offer a rush order service to ensure no further delay to other wingsuits in the production queue.

Shipping

Shipping prices vary per region and will be communicated before postage. The customer takes all responsibility for any additional costs related to customs, import duty and sales tax etc.

For pricing on shirts and other apparel, check our separate merchandise page

Repairs

For repairs on your wingsuit, please contact edo@phoenix-fly.com to inform us of the repair. After the appointment is scheduled, send you suit to:

Migoline – Robert Pecnik
Vincarje 54
4220 Škofja Loka
tel; +386 (0)41 866690 Slovenija

Make sure you clearly mark the package ‘repair’, and also try and make sure the suit you send us is clean. For the people working on your suit, its not a pleasure to be smelling the last 400 jumps you made in the suit, so do try try and give it a wash if possible

Measurement guide

Please take your measurements carefully. We are unable to make your wingsuit fit you without the correct measurements. Study the diagram to assist you. Get someone to help you, and double check each measurement. Measure yourself over a T/shirt and thin trousers. Do not add anything to your measurements. If we receive incorrect measurements, we will have to charge for modifications. Take all these measurements around the widest part, except the waist.

1. Height
Measure your height, without shoes, standing up straight, arms by your side, feet shoulder width apart. You may find it helpful to stand with your back against a solid surface.

2. Chest
Measure the widest part of your chest, stand up straight, arms by your side, muscles relaxed, be careful to keep the tape parallel to the ground.

3. Waist
Measure the narrowest part of your waist, stand up straight, arms by your side, muscles relaxed, be careful to keep the tape parallel to the ground.

4. Hips
Measure the widest part of your hips, stand up straight, arms by your side, muscles relaxed. Be sure that you measure over the widest part of your buttocks, be careful to keep the tape parallel to the ground.

5. Shoulder to floor
Measure the distance between the shoulder and the floor, without shoes, standing up straight, feet shoulder width apart. Use your other hand to feel the shoulder joint and find the “corner” of your shoulder joint.

6. Torso/Body
Measure the length of your body. Be VERY careful with this measurement! Stand up straight, feet shoulder width apart, measure from under the crotch where seams of your trousers meet, straight up the front of your torso to the indention at the base of the throat.

7. Inseam
Measure the distance between the crotch and the floor. Stand up straight, legs shoulder width apart, without shoes. Make sure the tape is vertical.

8. Shoulders
Measure the distance between the shoulders, lay the tape across the back of the shoulders and measure the distance between the two shoulder bones. Allow the tape to follow the curve of the shoulders. Feel for the bump on the back of each shoulder joint and measure the distance between them.

9. Arm
Measure the length of the arm from the shoulder to the bone of wrist. Stand up straight, arms by your sides. Start the measurement at the top of the shoulder, feel the joint with your other hand to find the “corner” of the shoulder. Finish the measurement where the wrist bone sticks out as a “bump” on the outside of the arm.

10. Thigh
Measure the widest part of the thigh. Stand up straight, feet shoulder width apart with your weight equally supported on both legs, muscles relaxed. Make sure you measure the widest part of the thigh.

11. Bicep
Measure the widest part of the bicep, with the muscle relaxed. Stand up straight, with your arms by your side, measure the widest part of the bicep with your muscles relaxed.

12 Wrist
Measure the widest part of the wrist.

13. Shoe size
Include your shoe size, remember to specify the type of measurement UK, US or Continental.

14. Weight
Include your weight in either pounds or kilos (kg preferred)

15. Leg
For the track pants and jacket the leg measurement is required. Stand up straight, feet shoulder width apart and measure the distance between the hip bone and the ankle bone, ensuring the tape remains straight.

Learning to fly a wingsuit
If you have no skydiving experience, it’s important to first learn to skydive and make a minimum of 200 freefall skydives before wingsuit training can commence. For more information, check
www.wingsuitschool.com. To learn to fly a wingsuit when you meet basic safety requirements, check out the Phoenix-Fly coach directory on our website

Skydiving Gear for Wingsuit Flying
Phoenix-Fly recommends using a decent length bridle and pilotchute in combination with wingsuit flying. Most modern skydiving gear is perfectly suited for wingsuit flying without needed modifications. There are some container modifications possible in case of experiencing opening delays, but we don’t advise to do so before consulting a rigger.

Advised bridle length is between 6’ – 9’, advised pilotchute size between 27’ – 32’.
Only for bigger format wingsuits, when combined with higher experience level, do we recommend a slight upsizing in bridle and or pilotchte size. We don’t recommend going over 9’ in terms of bridle length.

Note: These are only advised sizes, and its always good to consult your local wingsuit coach or gear manufacturer for more tailored advise.

In terms of packing in skydiving, its advised to have bridle routing coming to and from the from bottom of the container. For the pilotchute handle we advise orange tubing or freefly pud for added security in the plane and (optional)backflying. Its encouraged to avoid pilotchute handles with substantial weight and/or single attachment points to avoid problems with bridle entanglements.

Working at Phoenix-Fly
We regularly get questions about working at Phoenix-Fly. The team of people we work with are highly skilled professionals. People making positive contributions to the sport, showcasing a workers mentality, having outstanding skills in flying and coaching will automaticly be people we notice. From there, if the need arises we will always seek out talented individuals for positions within Phoenix-Fly if available. Due to the high safety requirements, we are not able to hire based on resume or emails, and can’t offer any internships or on the job learning experience. If you showcase talent in the sport, we will find you.

Escape Sleeve
We sometimes get asked why we no longer use the stretch material escape sleeve, as featured on some of our earlier designs. In our extensive testing process, we found that the loose sleeve design made for a significant decrease in agility, and introduced a lot of movement of the suit on the body. This could result in unwanted behavior in flight, introducing unexpected turns or dives. We believe a smooth leading edge, and tight adhering to the human form leads to the highest form of control and safety possible. Creating a safer flight experience for the user.

For added safety, the robust YKK zippers are always backed up by a tried and tested cutaway system, as designed by Robert Pecnik back in 1999. Based on the cutaway system as used on skydiving rigs.

Manuals & Instructions

 

Video Rigging Manual: Zipper Rigging

Presented here is a brief video manual on rigging your wingsuit. This manual applies to all current wingsuit models Phoenix-Fly has on the market with the over the shoulder zipper attachment.

Cleaning a wingsuit

If you want to give your wingsuit a wash, put it in a laundry bag, and put it in a machine on gentle/cold cycle. A small bit of detergent is possible, but not needed.
Important: Do not spin-dry or use any form of heating during the process.
After washing, it is possible to give a wingsuit a thin coat of ScotchGuard or similar protective product to keep the suit clean.
