Karma


KARMA out-performs many DHV 1-2 gliders while maintaining DHV 1 security at all speeds. A new profile, further planform evolution, and design innovations improved the overall performance. The glider weight has been sharply reduced, though still using Gelvenor cloth.


The Small prototype was called Debute.


The Karma is also available in a paramotor version, with modified risers with trimmers. Based on the DHV-1 Karma paraglider, it offers a solution as a school paramotor or as a first paramotor for the novice pilot.


The Karma features a new sophisticated profile, Split A-riser, Butt hole with Velcro closure, and is damped in pitch, highly resistant to surging forward or back even in turbulence (in line with newest, stringent DHV 1 requirements).


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.


Price 2009: US$2,400.00


Apco's Karma Sport (Karma SP) new beginner / intermediate wing was offered side by side with Karma. An additional beginner / intermediate wing which has a lot in common with Karma's philosophy, but is glider with sharp, immediate response (handling inspired by Vista), and of a light, low weight, low pack volume.
Almost a kilo lighter than the Karma, the SP is equipped with Flexon battens across the span on the L/E, has a significantly lower line drag, and is made from new lightweight cloth.


KARMA SP Paramotor Version


KARMA SP was extensively tested for freeflying as well as under power and its equally well suited for both - making it a great wing for a paramotor. The KARMA SP's overall behavior is tuned for motorised flight. From easy nil wind inflation and launching to ultra-safe stability.


The SP features Split A riser for perfect launch and big ears, an advanced riser system, stainless steel hardware , and anti-twist swivel and neodynium magnet brake handle.


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.
