The X-1 ‘Widow Maker’ is a very aggressive 9-cell main canopy with an aspect ratio of 3.0:1, a very thin turbulent flow airfoil, tapered trailing and leading edges, and in-house developed diagonal braces (featuring tapes not fabric as x-brace system).
This new bracing system allows the canopy to feature a supportive ‘endoskeleton’, with the line attachment tapes running in a zig-zag pattern span-wise, for each line group. The end result is a very rigid canopy with virtually no distortion even at very high wing loadings. The Widow Maker is arguably the most rigid and highest performance skydiving main ever developed.
The X-1 is suited only for the most experienced canopy pilots. The Widow Maker displays a very high forward speed, steep dives, and long swoops.
