For lower drag and better internal pressure. Developed for the competition dominating C-RACE, these new compression inlets make the FREAK 2 faster than the FREAK and all of the competition, with perfectly tuned internal pressure.
We have increased the lifting surface of the arm wing by extending the wing profile into the gripper. This improves power and agility without increasing the total surface area of the suit.
The planform has been updated with similar surface area but a more balanced feel and smoother pitch. A more efficient leading edge allowed us to shift the CG closer to the center of pressure which yields smoother transitions and handling in roll and pitch.
The “flare-power” of a wingsuit is one of the best indicators of suit efficiency and performance. The more flare a suit has, the better it retains energy and converts speed to lift. The original FREAK had incredible flare-power for its size, and was the first freestyle-class suit to yield real altitude gains. The FREAK 2 is significantly improved in this category, thanks to a new profile, the addition of mini-ribs, and low-drag compression inlets.
A refined planform, reduced drag, and tuned internal pressure have combined to make the FREAK 2 the most precise in its class. Holding a slot in a high-speed formation has never been easier.
At steep angles and vertical flight, the FREAK 2 excels. The faster you go, the more it loves you.
The Freak had one single leg wing back inlet. Yes, this made it a bit more technical to backfly, but the decision to do this was calculated: Inlets = drag, and drag sucks. The FREAK 2 Compression Inlet yields lower drag and higher internal pressure, allowing us to place two inlets on the top surface of the leg wing without increasing total inlet drag on the suit. Compression Inlets are airlocked, reducing bleed through the lower-pressure side. Take a close look at the FREAK 2’s Compression Inlets next to other designs, and fly them both if you can. What you will notice immediately is a greater speed range and a more solid wing through every flyable angle and speed.
It’s fast, everyone knows that. But the real power of a suit is shown in its ability to fly well across a wide speed range. The FREAK 2, like its predecessor, is an excellent choice for XRW. Even at canopy wingloadings of <3:1, the FREAK 2 is capable of backfly and belly XRW formations.
