horizon

After years of development, we are excited to introduce PD’s first wingsuit-specific canopy HORIZON. The Horizon is a low-bulk 7-cell main canopy designed to be an easy ‘off button’ to end your wingsuit flight with as little drama as possible. The emphasis for developing this canopy was on eliminating deployment problems caused by the burble of larger wingsuits, without sacrificing a great flare or responsive handling. In fact, we think the Horizon has the best stopping power of any canopy in its class. Best of all, the Horizon gives you the ability to upsize as many as two full sizes compared to a non-crossbraced ZP canopy main, meaning you can fit a larger canopy in your existing rig for wingsuit jumps. No need for a new container!

sabre 2

PD Reserve

The Sabre2 is a powerful semi-elliptical 9-cell canopy that is a great choice for current intermediate and experienced jumpers. Our most popular all-around canopy, the Sabre2 feels aggressive at higher wing loadings but is quite tame when lightly loaded. This canopy is best known for its powerful flare and wide speed range. With neat packing and proper deployment technique, Sabre2 openings are consistently soft and predictable. The Sabre2 has a steeper glide and a longer recovery arc than the flatter gliding Pulse or Stiletto and is an excellent choice for those wanting a bit more aggressive piloting experience but are not interested in the demands of the Katana or Velocity.

Performance Designs, Inc. is a world-class parachute manufacturer located in DeLand, FL. For over 30 years, we have been designing and building revolutionary canopies for every kind of skydiver. Motivated by a true love for skydiving and an insatiable curiosity for what is possible in parachute design, we are constantly dreaming, creating, testing, and producing top quality wings. Here at PD, we treat our customers like family. We work hard every day to bring PD pilots not only the most reliable canopies, but the most reliable customer service as well. Bill Coe founded Performance Designs in 1982 with the primary goal of improving the performance of Ram-air canopies. In 1983, he opened a shop near Skydive DeLand where he built parachutes on his own. By then, he had already built the early version of the PD 9-cell.
By 1984, Bill brought on John LeBlanc, a fellow skydiver and aeronautics classmate from ERAU, as Vice President and moved the company down to Miami. Together, Coe and LeBlanc have introduced cutting-edge concepts and materials to the parachute industry to revolutionize parachute design. Developments such as Microline, cross-bracing, and zero porosity fabric that were created in the early days of the company are still standards in the parachute industry today.

All Zero-P Valkyrie--The Valkyrie builds on the dominating performance of the Peregrine and is designed as a step up from the Comp Velocity. Unlike the Peregrine, the Valkyrie was intended for freefall use, so the opening performance was a major consideration in the development of the canopy. And the openings on the Valkyrie are superb! Not to mention, it is simply a blast to fly. Whether you're filming tandems all day or dedicated to canopy piloting, the Valkyrie will reinvigorate the everyday jump and excite even the most passionate canopy pilots. We loved making it. You're going to love flying it.
Hybrid Valkyrie (Sail)--You love your Valkyrie. You’ve been jumping her for the past two years. She gives you the buttery smooth openings, responsiveness, and power you crave! But you’re ready for more…and we’re ready to give it to you! Introducing the Hybrid Valkyrie – everything you love about the Valkyrie but more. We incorporated sail fabric into the ribs to give her more power, more responsiveness, and longer swoops than a standard construction Valkyrie. Think of her as a “Valkyrie on steroids” with more sensitivity in the harness and more stopping power than ever before. Available as an option when purchasing a custom wing, the sail ribs are a great addition for a seasoned or first-time Valkyrie owner. When choosing between the All ZP and Hybrid Valkyrie, keep in mind that the sail ribs will increase pack volume by about a half size in comparison to the All ZP Valkyrie. The overall lifespan of the canopy is similar to that of an all-ZP wing.
