Versatility, Simplicity, Performance

The Seven is the result of over a decade of BASE canopy research and development by Asylum’s team of test jumpers in collaboration with the world-renowned manufacturer, Gin Gliders, Inc.

Versatility and proven reliability: are the core elements of the Seven. A balanced line-plan and chord-wise line arrangement allow for clean openings with rapid pressurization, and at the same time incredible slow-speed performance and backward flight. Backward flight and stability in stall are two of the most important functions of a BASE canopy, for difficult landing areas and for object avoidance. You will be amazed at the simplicity of flying the Seven slowly, and backwards, with rear risers or with brakes – no other existing canopy performs as well.

Simplicity of design: The profile of the Seven was designed for the optimum balance of opening performance and glide performance, in a wide range of conditions. From slider down to terminal, the Seven’s openings are crisp and immediate, without the need for vents.

Landing: The Seven flares well from any control position - whether you are already in deep brakes ‘sinking it in’, or at max glide, you will find that the Seven flares powerfully and consistently, even in downwind situations.

Volume: The Seven is thoroughly reinforced, without excess bulk. On average, the Seven packs with 5-10% less volume than comparable BASE canopies making it easier to fit into your container. Perfectly aligned packing tabs add to its overall ease of use.

Durability: The Seven is made from the highest quality, most durable, and most advanced fabric available today. CSR Braids provides the best dacron and spectra suspension lines available. Absolutely no compromises were made when choosing material for the Seven, and we are confident that your canopy will perform for hundreds of jumps in every possible condition.

Design: With the aid of CAD, the Seven is unparelled with precise dimensioning. Laser cut panels ensure the consistency and uniformity providing for smooth.

effecient manufacturing. The wing assembly is separate from the finishing process allowing for a increased level of detail and multiple complete inspections. Current sizes available:(sq. ft.) 300, 280, 260, 240, 220 200. Both larger and smaller sizes, as well as custom, available upon request.

I have been using what was consolidated rigging equipment since the mid/late 90's. Starting off with the Mojo in a Perigee classic, then onto the ACE and then again to the Seven... Its a fantastic canopy all round. Asylum have really gone out of their way to nail this canopy. It packs super small, some 10% smaller than a similar size ACE making a neat and tidy pack job. The material, even with the Composite Upper Surface packs neatly and stays exactly where you place it.

The openings are totally predictable, as you pack and have confidence in the equipment the openings are consistent, both slider up and slider down. The pressurisation is rapid and the flight is both rapid when you have the space and time but also very slow and precise when you need it. I can sink the canopy in on deep brakes but still have enough left in the 'locker' for a flare and a comfortable landing.

In all the Asylum Seven is a breath of fresh air, it is predictable and confidence boosting. A must in any container for sure.

The Seven is a whole new type of BASE canopy that brings the word versatile into base. It is great for technical landing areas with a deep braked approach, it sinks like an elevator and still has plenty left for a soft landing. On the other end of the spectrum the Seven feels like a fast sky diving canopy as aggressive inputs give very aggressive outputs, if you have the room for it you can really pick up a lot of speed and have a blast on your way down. The Seven will make you excited to pack as the material falls into place and stays where you put it, no canopy I have ever used packs as small and clean. The deployment defines consistency as it very quickly yet smoothly opens on heading time and time again. All in all the Seven is an exhilarating and confidence inspiring BASE canopy perfect for any jump, don't leave home with out it! -Jesse Hall
