Apco Salsa

apcosalsa

 

Designed to be the backbone of the 2005 range of gliders, APCO launched the DHV 1-2 class Salsa glider. The glider weight has been sharply reduced and a A new planform and profile help for top performance in its’ class. Turn coordination is more precise and brake response is immediate and direct.

Salsa is equipped with HIT valves – standard on all latest APCO gliders. They give the widest speed range on accelerator, and safe excellent glide across the speed range. Sophisticated riser with split A is also a major contributor to Salsa’s glide at speed.

The Salsa features a diagonal rib structure, split A riser, and heavy duty Technora lines.

The glider is made from tear resistant Ripstop Nylon cloth, which is P.U. coated to zero porosity and then siliconized to give the fabric high resistance to the elements.
Different cloth is used for the top, bottom and ribs due to their different functions. The lines are made of superaramid covered with a polyester sheath for protection against UV, wear and abrasion. The bottom section of the brake lines is made of polyester because of its better mechanical properties. The karabiners that attach the lines to the risers are made of stainless steel.
