Finally we are proud to present the all new SPARK II – a natural evolution of and successor to our popular and very successful Spark harness. It now allows us to offer the latest, most sophisticated sports harness on the APCO range (positioned above recently revamped Edge II).

SPARK II - the next generation of APCO sport harness. Fitting perfectly into our range.


APCO’s Free Flight harness range:

First Harness (veteran trainer - introductory harness)
Chairbag IV (latest generation of famous reversible Chairbag)
Edge II (newly updated “bread and butter” of our harness range)
SPARK II (the ultimate Sport harness)
Ritma (the high end harness – light and sleek)
Blade (competition, pod harness)
Tandem Pilot (real professional piece of gear)
Tandem Passenger (making tandem pilot’s life easy)


APCO’s Paramotor harness range:

Universal Paramotor (the most successful p/m harness on the market)
SLT High hook in  (state of the art superlight p/m harness for
 high hook in frames)
SLT Low hook in  (state of the art superlight p/m harness for
 low hook in frames)


SPARK II stands out for its comfort, finish and clean lines.

The concept of SPARK II is based on latest harness design principles, taking APCO technology to new heights. Extensive use of new, attractive materials and latest hardware makes the difference - allowing us to offer a much more attractive harness, with beautiful finishing touches and reduced weight.


APCO Spark 2 Build Quality

Now even more comfortable, more sophisticated and sleeker than ever before. SPARK II is aimed at pilots who prefer a classic harness, looking for total comfort, maximum security, blended with stylish design and loads of extras.

The pilot protection environment of SPARK II shares the same elements as EDGE II, including full airfoam backprotector with backplate and side protectors - taking pilot safety and protection even further.
