The AURA series is designed specifically for technical wingsuit BASE lines. It offers the shortest start arc, accessible glide performance, and comfortable agility in steep terrain lines.
The A3 is a new design, evolved from our performance line. We combined the best attributes of our performance suits with the comfort and ease of use that the AURA series has become known for. In steep lines at high speeds, the A3 is the most stable suit available today.
Overall, the A3 is designed specifically for modern wingsuit BASE pilots. In the BASE environment, speed and glide are important, but not the only concern. Our mission for the A3 was to retain as much comfort and ease of use as possible. A moderate arm sweep, flexible panels at the wrist, and a new profile that is more pitch-stable in an arms-level configuration make it a true weapon in big mountains. The A3 remains comfortable at the steepest angles whether you fly with arms level, or in a slightly dihedral configuration.
Technology from our FAI World Championship winning CR+, and the C-RACE - which swept the podium of every major speed race in 2016 - are present in the A3 and are combined with the forgiving character that has made the AURA series the suit of choice for elite WS BASE jumpers. The result is a suit that we think will again play a role in the advancement of our sport.
For WS BASE jumpers focused on the lowest and most technical objects, particularly with low-overall-height such as in Moab, the A3GS version is now available.
