ABOUT THE COLIBRI
The Colibri is designed to be the perfect all-around suit for both beginner and intermediate pilots! The suit design requires less strength to fly making it versatile, fun, and easy to fly, while offering a surprisingly large performance envelope.
Through new design shapes and testing, lift is produced from the wing area closer to the body, giving the Colibri a positive “Body Core Lift” (BCL) factor that can be felt with less tiring long flights. The “Body Core Lift” arm wing design also allows TonySuits to shape a wing planform that is not only efficient and easy to fly, but also is tapered to allow easy access to the pilot chute at pull time.
The leg wing design, with its unique tapered trailing edge, provides solid pressurization and results in excellent forward drive. For greater versatility, and in addition to the standard arm and leg wing zipper vents, the Colibri has an adjustable “Arm Pressure Leg Vent” (APLV) to vent air from the arm wing through the lower leg.
A SUIT THAT LASTS
The Colibri is the tool that is perfectly adept for beginners doing their First Flight and initial training jumps without feeling that it’s just a "beginner" suit. For First Flight training, lower the wing pressure using the integrated pressure vent zippers located in the arm and leg wings. Opening all the available pressure zippers "de-tunes" the suit to a level that will provide a safe and positive First Flight training experience. When ready, start closing the zippers to increase wing pressure and to "Tune-Up" the Colibri’s performance to the needed level. With all the pressure vents closed, the Colibri is beyond a beginner suit and is a true "Flocking for Fun" and acrobatic capable wingsuit.
