Apco Libra

apcolibra


Libra is a cross country high-performance glider, with a super-low drag design, incorporating embedded minimal drag top Dyneema line cascade unsheathed (lifetime guarantee), "zero drag" Bullet risers and reduced total line length.


Featuring a hi-tech profile developed from the Vista's profile, accelerated flight brake compensator for a wide speed range, a double-coated cloth for extended durability, and all metal parts in Stainless Steel or Aluminium.  Neodymium brake magnets and brake line connected to handles via swivels to eliminate line twists. Equipped with Flexon battens systems, and reduced intake size, optimising performance, inflation characteristics and reopening behaviour.


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.
