FREAK 2

The go-to dropzone suit that does it all.

Increased Performance, Same Legendary Comfort

  • Smokes competing suits in speed, glide, and agility
  • Unmatched flare power and range in the class
  • Low-Drag Compression Inlets
  • Wingtip "Profile Gripper" and Leading Edge Mini-Ribs
  • Easy backflying, effortless transitions
  • The ultimate XRW suit

The FREAK series is the benchmark for all-around performance in the experienced pilot category. For the past two years, back at Squirrel HQ, we’ve been collating all of the feedback from our customers and team pilots and working on taking this design to the next level. The FREAK 2 delivers increased speed and glide and more compact handling.

Freestyle agility, with “big suit” performance: This suit excels at advanced acro / freestyle flying but also has enough power and performance to handle modern wingsuit BASE jumps.

It is the ultimate dropzone suit. The entire Squirrel team agrees that this is the go-to choice for fun jumping. The FREAK 2’s speed and flare power is improved, meaning that high-G climbs and low-G pushover / freefall maneuvers are even better. It is more compact feeling, meaning that steep transitions and carving feel even tighter.

The FREAK 2 is the only suit that spans so many disciplines of wingsuit flying at this level of performance. The FREAK 2 sets the stage for your progressive flying.

The Freestyle Airfoil Cross Section is an option for the FREAK 2.

Several key innovations put the FREAK 2 into a class of its own, again:

COMPRESSION INLETS

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.

PROFILE GRIPPER

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.

REFINED PLANFORM

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

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.

THE AGILITY

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.

STEEP FLIGHT

At steep angles and vertical flight, the FREAK 2 excels. The faster you go, the more it loves you.

INVERTED

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.

THE RANGE

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.

COMPRESSION INLET

In 2012, Squirrel introduced the first 3D reinforced inlet, which has now been adopted by other manufacturers. The new Compression Inlet builds on this innovation with higher intake efficiency and lower drag. The aerodynamic shape, finely tuned size, and intake feed are all the result of extensive R&D.

Profile Gripper

PROFILE GRIPPER

By extending the wing profile into the gripper, lifting surface is increased without increasing the total surface area of the suit. This means more performance gained from the same amount of surface area – a “free” upgrade.

Rapid Arm Deployment

RAD

Rapid Arm Deployment. A carefully designed forearm segment of your leading edge allows improved access to your PC at pull time, and your risers / toggles during opening. This helps to make BOC access and early riser control safer and more intuitive than traditional designs.

New Nutsack

NEW NUTSACK

The new nutsack is accessed from the same location, but is a panel-wide flexible hammock which allows more storage and also keeps items higher / closer to your CG, and further from the leg inlets. Store your gear closer to your center of gravity without having it affect the fit of your suit.

LIGHT RIBS

Lightweight, durable, and more stable than mesh, Porcher Sport Skytex is renowned for its mechanical stability. Helps to reduce overall weight and pack volume.

New One-Zip Attachment

NEW ONE-ZIP ATTACHMENT

The new One-Zip system more durable and easier to use! It uses no cables at all, and protects the zippers from being damaged by harness laterals. And it attaches to your rig in seconds. The adjustable lateral slot accommodates a range of harness types and sizes.

Get Stiffie

GET STIFFIE

The bottom surface of the leading edge is Mylar-reinforced to maintain profile structure and proper feeding of the inlets.

AIRTIGHT CONSTRUCTION

All of our suits are built to the most exacting specifications, and tested for airtight symmetry in our production facility at multiple points along the construction process. The end result is the highest build quality that we have ever seen.

CUSTOM INTERNAL PRESSURE

All of our suits allow you to choose the amount of internal pressure in the arm wings. You can any choose any setting between full pressure for maximum performance and speed range, or minimum pressure for easier maneuvering in acro / freestyle flight.

Main Surfaces

Main Surfaces

Our main concern was finding an ideal ratio between weight and durability, along with high mechanical stability and good results in stretch and tear tests. Our main surface fabric is a 210D Ripstop, with very low stretch, and a good rigidity to comfort ratio.

Leading Edge Skin

Leading Edge Dacron

Our proprietary laminar-grain leading edge skin is wrinkle-resistant, has low crease memory, and has a proven aerodynamic track record. First used by the winning Squirrel team pilots in the RedBull Aces series, this material has now trickled down to our entire range.

Internal Ribs

Internal Ribs

All ribs are constructed from the renowned Porcher Skytex 40, which has an unparalleled stability-to-weight ratio.

Leading Edge Mylar

Leading Edge Mylar

We offer two choices for wing surface Mylar reinforcement:

1. Porcher Sport (white / translucent). This is our standard option.

2. Dimension Polyant Carbon-Graphite (black / clear). The highest quality laminate on the market, with a carbon and graphite weave. It's black, and it's more rigid, but there is not a measureable performance difference over the Porcher mylar.

Reviews

  • "Today I've flown my new Freak 2 for the first time. I just wanted to say thank you for the job you did with this one, I literally can't describe how natural it feels flying it! My previous wingsuit is the Funk and I would never believe that there will be a bigger suit easier to do transitions or back fly or anything.

    I don't have any Squirrel logos on my helmet or elsewhere, I have no idea where the projection came from, but my back camera captured a nut silhouette from the squirrel logo across the sky, the screenshot is with this email. Again, thanks a lot for this amazing suit!"

  • "It’s awesome. I didn't believe to feel so much different compared to my (other brand similar class suit). It’s so much faster. The pressurization of the wings is incredible, real Flare machine. I tried to flare with my ____ but was impossible, after the first 3 seconds of flare the pressurization of the ___ was not enough to climb up.

    Also the grippers of the Freak 2 are super comfortable compared to the ___, easy to change the hands position during Carve or Belly-Back/Back-Belly transitions.

    I tried it for some XRW jumps, it has an amazingly low stall speed, which is perfect for XRW. I did some xrw last year with my ___ and was definitely more difficult to fly without stalling the suit. The Freak 2 has much better range! In attach you can find some pictures of the xrw with Mario Fattoruso of the PD Factory Team."
