Apco Presta

apcopresta


Circa 2005 the Presta was designed to fill the gap between Allegra and Bagheera. An effort was made to push performance of this new glider significantly further than Allegra, but without any compromise on safety, retaining DHV 1-2 Class and CEN Standard safety parameters.


Presta incorporates a Active Double Valve System on closed leading edge cells (ADVS - patent pending), solving for the first time the inherent launch problems common to new gliders featuring closed leading edge cells. ADVS allows cells to remain open for easy launch and quick inflation of the cells, but closes automatically in flight, reducing drag and increasing performance.


Presta is equipped with a new, more efficient riser system, evolved from the Simba competition riser. It also has split A for ease of performing Big Ears etc.
