Probably the longest produced classic trainer - it is equally well suited for teaching free flying and perfect for entry level paramotoring.
Now this classic wing has been modernised once again - the 4th version of the wing has been released on the market. The wing is exactly the same as before, but now with Flexon™ batten system , pioneered by APCO - installed across L/E (today standard on entire APCO range).
Prima IV also features improved flare and adaptability for paramotor flying. The canopy is also more rigid (no tip movement), with redesigned, modern handling - direct and responsive in comparison with past designs.
The rest of Prima specifications remain the same. As always, produced from bomb proof, indestructible Gelvenor cloth combined with heavy duty lines, to ensure long lasting life.
Second generation Gelvenor cloth is much improved - as durable as ever, but significantly lighter without sacrificing any of its famous qualities (you will be surprised by how light it is) The direct benefit of the new Gelvenor is its contribution to even further improved launch and safety - making Prima IV equally well adapted for free flying schooling or paramotor training.
Many schools are amazed, unbelievably witnessing the years of service Prima IV can deliver. All this for a little cost - specially designed to be affordable for all. As a schooling/entry level glider it is still the best investment on the market.
FLEXON® Batten system:
New generation FLEXON ® batten system incorporated (see below) for the leading edge of the ribs, insuring perfect profile shape instead of traditional Mylar reinforcement. FLEXON ® battens reduce the weight of the glider by an additional 500gr without any sign of deterioration during the life span of the glider.
Additional advantage of FLEXON batten is that it is practically indestructable,
Safeguarding the performance and launch over the lifespan of the glider.
We guess you noted that recently quite a few respected paragliding brands have borrowed the Flexon batten system for their products and claim to be the innovators, branding the system with fancy names -(imitation is the greatest form of flattery.)
