The Swift is APCO’s top of the line cross country harness! A true masterpiece – combination of mechanics and aerodynamics. It is by far the most sophisticated harness we have ever made and the results are evident.
Body Geometry – before everything, we have made sure that geometry of this harness is perfect. We worked hard to achieve balance between comfort and activeness. The Swift will transmit exactly what the wing is doing, but in a way which is reassuring and not surprising.
Comfort was the main objective and it was achieved by extensive, padded support throughout the harness. A fully breathable padded back with wide shoulder straps for load distribution help relieve any pressure points which can occur after hours in the harness. The rigid seatplate is covered by dense foam and complemented by load bearing semi-rigid elements integrated into the back of the harness (APCO exclusive) making sure body stays in the optimal ergonomic position regardless of how each webbing adjustment is set up.
Special attention was aimed at improving the speed system. A double set of ball bearing pulleys promote a smooth and effortless operation of the speed system.
Regardless of your wing, you will be amazed how easy it is to push the speed bar with this harness. A special feature incorporated into this harness is an adjustable position speed system pulley.
This system allows to move the pulleys position according the pilot’s center of gravity, preventing the harness from pitching up or down when applying speed system. This feature is unique to APCO and is an example of our attention to the technical details of performance in flight.
The Swift has a redesigned low drag profile. The rear fairing covers the head and shoulder areas preventing flow disturbance. Inside the fairing, multiple internal profile ribs insure the best trailing edge shape for minimal drag. Inflatable front fairing with high internal pressure cuts through the air .
Careful attention was aimed at removing any wrinkles or points which may disturb the airflow over the harness. A zipped closed rescue bridle channel contributes to the sleek harness surface.
the Swift was designed to be light. Saying that, it is still a full racing harness and no short cuts were taking with construction or materials.
It is as light as possible to make a harness without compromising on durability or performance.
Although designed as a racing harness, the Swift will upgrade any pilot’s flying sensation. For pilots that have never used a pod harness, its smooth feedback and comfort will improve thermalling capacity and XC performance.
For experienced pilots the Swift will be the ultimate choice for breaking existing records!
