|NEW | Apus RS Hike 20 and 23|
Hike & fly with a touch of the miniwing’s style!
In response to strong demand,
These make the link from the miniwing to the thermalling wing, with projected area of 20 / 23m², a weight of only 3.4 / 3.6kg and a weight range of 95 / 110kg (EN-B).
As with the smaller sizes, you will be impressed by the simplicity of the Apus RS Hike 20 and 23 from launch to landing. Risk-conscious mountaineers will appreciate this after a strenuous ascent just as much as hike & fly novices.
At the same time, the new sizes are much more than simply a descent method: they cover every eventuality to give you the perfect adventure, from extended thermal flights to dynamic soaring and right through to XC bivvy flying! Here too the innovative RAST concept provides greater safety and performance, particularly in turbulent conditions off the beaten track.
Optional trimmer risers for the Apus RS.
…and the Apus RS ‘swift’ goes even further!
The trimmer risers are available now, and increase the already high trim speed of the Apus RS still further by about 6km/h.
This is particularly useful on launch when coastal soaring so you can get away from the compression at the soaring ridge in strong wind.
The RAST system keeps the Apus RS very stable and easy to control even with open trimmers.
The uncertified trimmer riser can be purchased only as an optional accessory for a cost of Euro 189 gross (Euro 119 in combination with Apus RS order) incl. quick links and must be ordered separately. Since the Apus RS has no certification with trimmer risers, it can thus be converted back to the version with certification, if resold.
