Wings Classic Skydiving Container
Production time: 16-18 weeks
The Wings Classic by Sunrise Manufacturing is the best bang for your buck container on the market. The Wings Classic now includes cut-in laterals and hip rings as standard!
Wings is designed to take comfort an extra step while increasing the overall harness strength. It is one of few systems on the market today that has passed the TSO-C23d. This means that the Wings harness has been thoroughly tested and approved for heavier weights at higher speeds. With skydiving headed in so many new directions we offer a versatile harness that conforms to our changing sport.
After several years of testing, we have designed a truly flexible ring system. No system on the market has been able to take full advantage of a ring intersection until now. We found that the ring intersection needs to be where the lateral, main lift web and leg pads meet. This means there is no longer a need for individual leg pad connections because of the 45-degree angle that all leg pads assume when wearing a harness. The Wings Aerial System allows true flexibility at the ring and no twisting or flexing load is taken by the webbing. This is a common problem among other systems; the ring simply does not flex and the webbing on the harness bends and flexes instead. If you compare the Wings to other rigs on the market you will see that the Wings does not have the “kink” on the main lift web that you will see on other rigs out there.
Sunrise Manufacturing believes that a riser cover design should be simple, but effective. Too many of today’s systems have problems with riser covers opening at the wrong time. There is a fine line between making them too tight and obstructing your openings; and/or, too loose and having them open unexpectedly. We found that the number one problem was that once a rig has 50+ jumps on it, the stiffeners inside the tuck tabs begin to bend abnormally. This is due to the fact that when a rig is packed, the shoulder straps need to bend whether it’s being worn or not. The Wings riser covers were designed so the bend in the shoulder strap is not in the tuck tabs, therefore preventing this bend in the stiffener. This in turn will keep our tabs closed when they are meant to be closed, and open when meant to be open.
Bottom of Container Pouches
To avoid the hassle of replacing a spandex BOC pocket every 200-300 jumps, we also offer a cordura pouch which is designed into the container. It is manufactured with the same 1000D cordura as the container to reduce wear and tear. We have also developed a larger, spacious pouch to allow the pilot chute to be flattened, giving the bottom of the container a cleaner, sleek look.
In addition to the new pouch design we have also invented a new type of handle for the throw out pilot chute, which we call the Freefly Handle. Here we have combined the low profile advantage of the “PUD” pull out system with the throw out pilot chute. This new cutting edge design will drastically reduce the potential of premature deployment. There is NO bridle exposure and the Freestyle Handle is easy to grab, while remaining tight and smooth with the bottom of the container.
Not until now has there been a harness that is as comfortable on the ground, in the aircraft and especially under canopy. Wings harness configuration is designed so that when standing erect there is no unnecessary tension placed on the hips, chest or legs. When sitting in the aircraft the harness flexes so that it forms to your position instead of restricting you. Most importantly , the nature of all harnesses put a lot of pressure on the thighs while under canopy (especially in the groin area). Sunrise Manufacturing has designed a harness that brings your legs slightly forward. This places most of the load on the back of the thigh, allowing you to feel as if you are sitting in a harness, rather than hanging from straps between your legs. The harness and lateral combine to give the most comfort .
Anti-Line Twist Main D-Bag
Line twists can be a real problem, especially with today’s elliptical canopies. We have reduced this problem with an innovative way of stowing the canopy lines. Instead of the traditional side of the bag stows, the new bag keeps all lines and stows on top of the D-Bag. This keeps the tension during deployment in the center of the bag instead of on the sides, which can cause the bag to teeter totter back and forth, potentially leading to line twists.
A wider stiffener (3″ Type IV webbing) is sewn into the underside of the reserve flap to insure that your reserve pin is not exposed to the relative wind, no matter what your position in freefall. Added Stiffener on the #2 Flaps: For a smoother, sleeker appearance of the cordura, no matter how tight or loose your d-bag and canopy are in the main tray. Improved Riser Cover Design: Especially key on larger Wings (W-27 and up) and on all Wings with Large and Extra Large Yokes. With the new design there is less main riser exposed.
