The IBEX.UL is designed for jumping in the mountains. It is ideal for slider up applications where weight and pack volume are a primary concern.
Taking the profile from the HAYDUKE, the IBEX.UL is efficient and proven. The excellent glide performance is thanks to the clean leading edge and Spectra (UHMWPE) lines. The handling is responsive, and it is forgiving in deep brakes with a low stall speed even at higher wing-loading. It has all the flare you need for high-altitude, technical landings.
Sizing: If you typically jump a 250 for all-around BASE applications, we recommend downsizing to the 240 or 230 sizes. This affords the lightest, lowest volume system possible. The IBEX.UL was developed from the ground up to be flown at higher than typical wing-loading. Contact us to discuss the ideal size for your applications and goals.
The IBEX.UL is 100% CAD-to-Laser produced, and precision built in Squirrel's own production facility. Each parachute is hand-inspected by Martin Tilley of Asylum Designs.

"I am super impressed with the IBEX UL. The first jumps were some of the best on-heading openings I’ve ever had, and then tons of flare power at the end. Perfect canopy! I felt right at home, like my IBEX. (Brandon is jumping the 230, loaded at 0.72)."-Brandon Mikesell
"I don't usually chime in here, but as a longtime user of ultralight parachutes, I have to. The IBEX UL has the most progressive and well-tempered slider-up openings of any canopy I have jumped. The flare is plenty and overall it feels very precise and responsive. My preferred size is 230, which I load at 0.80."-Matt G
