Got your attention because it’s named after a cool samurai sword, didn’t we?  More than just a flashy name, the Katana boasts ideal specs for any experienced canopy pilot who’s not quite ready for a cross-brace, but itching for a more aggressive flight.  A step-up from our Sabre2 and Stiletto (yeah…we like swords), it’s a fully elliptical 9-cell designed for soft, smooth openings, a long control range, a steep dive (‘cause we know you wanna go fast), light front riser pressure, and a powerful flare.
