A new breed.
Performance Designs' Katana is a high-performance canopy designed for experienced canopy pilots. The Katana has been described as “a perfect fit between the Stiletto and Velocity,” and a canopy that is “very suited to modern flying styles.” Like the PD Stiletto, the Katana is a highly tapered or “elliptical” nine-cell canopy made from zero-porosity fabric. Both the Stiletto and the Katana were designed using a conventional cell structure, without cross-braces or airlocks™ . The Katana may look similar to a Stiletto at first glance, but beneath the surface they are two completely different machines. “……I love the way the Katana dives. It's easier to control all the way through a front riser approach, and feels a lot smoother to me than the Stiletto…..” The Katana is very easy to control using front risers. The front riser pressure starts off very light, and tends to build up slowly. It is easy to keep the Katana in a front riser dive or diving turn, and to make adjustments to your turn rate and rate of descent while diving. By comparison, the Stiletto's front riser pressure starts out noticeably higher and builds up more quickly. “……It's geared towards a pilot who enjoys a responsive canopy that has the characteristics of an ‘elliptical' wing. The turning characteristics, spirals, low-speed lift, and other characteristics associated with an ‘elliptical' wing are all there and all very refined…...” “….The Katana holds a dive longer than the Stiletto after a front riser or toggle turn. People who make high-performance approaches can start their turns higher and have more time to make adjustments…..” “…..Front riser pressure is very comfortable. Compared to a Velocity, it feels like I can just hold the fronts and do whatever degree of rotation I want…...” The Performance Designs Katana… the evolution of performance!

One word…
ev·o·lu·tion (eh vE lu shEn)

n. A gradual process in which something transforms into a different and better form.

A new breed.
Not just a modified Sabre, the Sabre2 is the latest, totally new design to emerge from 15 years of ongoing research and development.

This canopy is destined to become one of the most popular designs we have ever conceived.

From the moment you release the pilot chute, the Sabre2’s consistent, soft, on-heading openings will please you. Pilots of the original Sabre will immediately notice the Sabre2’s more crisp and positive response to toggle input, along with its lighter toggle and riser pressure. When it comes to landings, everyone will be amazed with the incredible amount of lift available on landing. This lift gives the Sabre2 pilot a tremendous ability to slow down when you wish to.

The Sabre2 will feel aggressive at higher wing loadings while maintaining its incredible ease of landing and forgiveness at lower wing loadings. The Sabre2’s performance envelope is huge.

If you are looking for a canopy that represents the evolution of modern, carefree performance, the Sabre2 is it.

The Performance Designs Sabre2… the evolution of performance!

PD Spectre You will never look at a seven 7-cell canopy the same way again...

Forget anything you have ever heard or experienced. The Spectre is unlike any other canopy you have ever seen! In its first months after release, our tapered, zero porosity seven cell has already become one of the most popular canopies we have ever produced.

Feedback from skydivers around the world tell the story:

How are the openings?
..."slow, soft and on-heading"..., ..."awesome"..., ..."incredible"..., "the best I've ever had"..., ... "why don't all parachutes open like this"...

How was it to fly?
... "quick turns"..., ... "very, very stable"..., ..."glides better than my nine cell"..., ..."great diving front riser turns"..., ..."solid in deep brakes"...

How are the landings?
..."swoops better than my nine cell:..., ..."great landings, even in brakes"..., ..."the best landings I've ever had, in all conditons"...

How was it for CRW?
..."solid in stacks"..., "handled hard docks extremely well"..., ..."rotations were great, straight down the back and dock"...

All this and smaller pack volume as well...need we say more?

PD Vengeance- Airlocked Canopy

Specifications Custom Design Order Form Get Acrobat

To many it was a passing thought, a hope, a dream "...if only Performance Designs would build an air-locked canopy..."

Some thought it could never happen...take the PD design and testing team, give them the license to the patented airlock system, and see what they come up with...

It's here... the result of over two years of constant research and development. The Vengeance not only sets a new standard in elliptical canopies, but offers the airlock advantage as well.

For those who want the next level of flight and landing performance, coupled with the benefits of the patented airlock system, the Vengeance is the canopy you have been waiting for.

Soft openings, unsurpassed responsiveness, incredible speed range, and air-locked rigidity, the Vengeance has it all. It has been designed with light front riser pressure, and a longer pullout arc to allow the pilot to build up higher speeds, if desired, for swoop landings. The Vengeance will amaze even the most accomplished "swoopers". Regardless of the approach technique used, this canopy generates more lift at low speed (touchdown) than any non-cross braced canopy ever built. Period.

We have never lost sight of the fact that great openings are just as important as great landings. The Vengeance openings are smooth and soft, just as they should be.

All this coupled with great turn response and the airlock system, make this canopy incredibly enjoyable to fly. It's a canopy pilot's dream come true.

If you're a high performance canopy pilot, you owe it to yourself to give this canopy a try.

Elliptical shaped Zero Porosity fabric creates a parachute that consistently has soft openings and flattens out easily with excellent flares. This parachute exhibits high performance characteristics at all wing loadings, and has an extremely fast forward speed, very fast turns, and is even more responsive at higher wing loadings.

Custom Design Order Form Get Acrobat

Velocity Eye The Velocity is intended only for very experienced pilots who have already flown a small elliptical canopy for several skydiving seasons, and consider themselves very current and very proficient. If this doesn't describe you, keep jumping and keep learning, but stay away from the Velocity, especially if it's a smaller canopy than you're used to. If you decide to go for it, we suggest you make several solo jumps on the Velocity opening above 6000 feet, or higher if it's a small one. This should give you the freedom to really explore the canopy unencumbered by other traffic.

The Velocity has the largest flight speed range of any canopy ever jumped. It is an absolute blast to fly. It responds very quickly to toggle, riser, or harness movements, and feels very "connected" to your body. Its cross-braced structure makes it feel very rigid. The swoops on a Velocity are the longest we've seen from any canopy, especially when using a smooth aggressive approach. The Velocity lands great, even at the maximum placarded wing loading, after a normal straight-in approach without front risers. There should be no problem using very conservative straight-in approaches in the beginning, especially if you've done a few recently on your present canopy of similar size. The flight performance information below assumes the canopy size is the same as what you're used to. Obviously, things happen much faster than described when down sizing.

Warning! Before purchasing or jumping a PD Velocity, please read the Performance Characteristics of the PD Velocity!!!!!

PD Silhouette Through extensive research & development, PD's PRO-TAPER Technology, and the use of both Zero-P and more conventional low-porosity fabrics, PD has developed a 9-Cell that combines characteristics formerly unattainable in a single parachute. The SILHOUETTE is easy to pack due to the combination of fabrics, it has consistent openings and an excellent glide ratio. The SILHOUETTE displays more responsive handling characteristics than a traditional 9-Cell at lower wing loadings. It has a fast turn rate, while maintaining predictable turn recovery. The landings are what you would expect from a Performance Designs canopy...SUPERB! The SILHOUETTE also retains a great deal of the in-flight forgiveness that people have come to expect from the PD SABRE line of canopies. If you are looking for performance, forgiveness, and ease of packing... THE SILHOUETTE is your answer! This new canopy was developed for skydivers who feel that their needs are not addressed by canopies currently available to them. The Zero-P and F-111 SILHOUETTE 9-cell is available in sizes ranging from 135 to 230sq. ft.

SLINK Soft Connector Links
from Performance Designs

Slinks

Performance Designs, Inc. introduces the Slink (Soft link):
The result of more than a year of development and testing, Performance Designs introduces a totally new design for a reusable soft link. (The PD Slink Pat. Pend.)

The PD Slink is the first soft link ever approved by the FAA for use with reserve parachutes!

After more than a year in development and testing, Performance Designs has released a new, patented design for a reusable soft link.

Why soft links?

They can reduce potential damage to the slider grommets, thereby extending the life span of suspension lines. They allow the jumper to pull the slider over the risers and toggles more easily and they do not require the use of slider "bumpers". No current designs met all of our criteria.

Some of the problems encountered with other designs included: low breaking strength, inconsistent manufacturing techniques, installation requiring tools and/or rigging facilities, removal required destroying the links, riser modification required for use, etc. Some soft link designs even incorporate metal parts... Finally we decided to design and build our own...

There were many issues to be addressed in the project:

  • Soft link strength and reliability.
  • Soft link construction methods, not to include any metal parts (a true soft link).
  • Compatibility with various riser/suspension line combinations (without modification).
  • Ease of installation.
  • Must be reusable.

The tests:

Performance Designs was not satisfied with releasing our new soft links unless we were absolutely confident in their reliability. We therefore put them through a grueling series of tests including:

  • Destruction testing where we pulled the riser/slink/suspension line systems to failure.
  • Destruction testing where we subjected the system to rapid onset, high "g force" loadings, up to and beyond the system failure point. This included shock loadings of over 75 g's (12,000 lbs. 4 riser system), utilizing both sport and tandem risers and suspension lines.
  • High speed, heavy load, drop tests from a B-25 bomber. These tests are the same tests that are performed on Performance Designs' reserves, in order to meet TSO approval requirements.
  • Long term wear testing, on canopies jumped in the field, over an extended time period. This included frequent removal and re-installation of the links tested.

In the tests performed, the Performance Design's Slink survived at loadings beyond the suspension lines and/or riser!

In our testing, the failure point of the system was repeatedly the suspension lines or the webbing attaching the three rings to the riser. In comparison tests, the PD reserve soft link survived tests that caused failures and/or severe damage to #4 and #5 stainless steel links! The PD Soft links not only survived these tests, but showed no signs of damage.

Based upon the results of these extensive tests, Performance Designs is the first manufacturer ever to receive FAA 'TSO' approval for a soft link for use on reserve parachutes!

The Performance Designs Slink is available in two configurations:

  • One for main canopies
  • One for sport reserves and/or tandem main canopies.

The PD Slink is now available as an option on all new Performance Designs canopies at no additional charge. They may also be purchased in sets of 4 (with installation instructions).
