Firebird-R Wingsuit – give yourself the soar like an eagle treatment

Firebirdwingsuit

This Firebird-R Wingsuit is an example of a growing class of equipment which allows you to fly like a bird – for a while – while you hurtle earthwards from somewhere high up. Before you thrust your credit card in their direction, it should be noted that the new sport is apparently very hazardous, and is not recommended without a lot of skydiving or basejumping experience and some direct hands-on training before you exit an aircraft or leap off a cliff. But boy, does it look like fun. €531.97 (knee protectors €23.77 extra). Video.

 The FIREBIRD-R is a wingsuit which offers an incredible performance range; flat glide ratio and maneuverability combined with harmony and total ease of use. The FIREBIRD-R is the first all around wingsuit in the world that has semi-rigid Mylar ribs – every rib. You won’t notice them until you push hard, pull some G’s and take it to your limits. But when the time comes to go for it FIREBIRD-R gives you what you ask for .. and maybe a bit more.
