The Consolidated Rigging Ace is designed as a general-purpose 7-cell BASE canopy. It is equally happy on low free falls into tight landing areas as it is opening at terminal velocity. Openings are very solid and predictable with the outstanding pressurization and slow-flight characteristics that are needed when opening close to a solid object.
Riser turns with the ACE are smooth and fast, and toggle input is engineered to provide very responsive and flat turns.
The flare is strong and occurs relatively early in the control stroke but the canopy has a lot left in reserve. Stall behavior is very predictable and controllable, making steep approaches with no-flare landings easy to perfect.
