Leia is not a canopy built to the standards of a mere workhorse, but to the impossibly high standards of a modern competition canopy.
With advanced panel shaping and the latest generation planform initiated with Petra, she is the most modern wing you can buy short of a full comp-specific sail fabric parachute. Her high ellipticity, optimised wing tips and signature Powerband nose make for a leading edge that simply slices through air.
From Leia’s sleek computer engineered 21-cell design to her sexy airfoil and Vectran 400 lines, she is not just the world’s ultimate ZP canopy. She is your ultimate everyday swoop wing. The result? She’s soft where you want her and strong where you need her. A canopy that can be jumped anytime hassle-free and can also kick ass over the pond like nothing you’ve ever seen. Made for highly skilled pilots to fly with everyday, she is not a toy – she’s a weapon.
Which is why everyone who is anyone (or thinks they are) wants to get his or her hands on one. True, that extra ten percent that separates the truly extraordinary from the merely good doesn’t come easy. Or cheap. But after one test flight we’re confident you’ll agree, she’s worth every penny.
The all-new Leia. Fall in love.

This new version of Leia only comes with Hybrid Construction - sail internals. We've also added mini-ribs.
You can also have any colour you want for the Powerband, rather than just black. Mini-ribs and patches come in the same colours as the Powerband.
Who is Leia for?
Leia is what we classify as a hyper-performance canopy, a class above normal high performance crossbraced canopies. She’s a completely different animal than your JFX, JVX or Velo. She’s designed for pilots who already have lots of experience swooping small, highly loaded crossbraced wings. The Leia is NOT for students, low time jumpers, CRW jumpers, wingsuiters, classic accuracy, BASE-jumping or even as a first crossbraced canopy.
To order a Leia you must have:
- 1500+ jumps
- 500+ jumps on a crossbraced canopy at a 2.0wl or above
- 250+ jumps (minimum) in the last 12 months
- A reference from a coach or experienced competitive swooper
If you fall narrowly outside these minimums but have something else to take into consideration (i.e. high percentage of swoop specific coached jumps or lots of competition experience) let us know.
Am I ready for Leia?
Do you have a good coach? Does your coach say you are ready? Do you meet the requirements above?
