SPARK II Harness

click to Enlarge

SPARK II - the latest, most sophisticated sports harness on the APCO range, has been launched by our R&D team. A natural evolution and successor to our popular and very successful Spark II harness. The second generation of Spark represents the latest, most sophisticated sports harness on APCO's range.

The 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.

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

SPARK II shares the philosophy and design approach with rest of our harnesses (positioned directly above our EDGE II) perfectly fitting in our range.

The pilot protection environment of SPARK II shares the same elements as EDGE, including full airfoam backprotector with backplate and side protectors, but takes pilot safety protection even further. Extensive use of new attractive materials and latest hardware, makes the difference - allowing to offer a much more attractive harness with beautiful finishing touches and reduced weight.

Foam Protector and Lexan Sheet
The SPARK II has a pilot protection system, combining the standard airfoam type protector with a lexan sheet (47143) which aids in spreading the load over the absorbing area of the airfoam and a Polystyrene side impact protector which offers the maximum protection available to a paraglider pilot today.

Test results conducted by DHV confirm that our standard 15cm Airfoam protector is fully in line with DHV requirements when used in combination with SPARK II type harness.

Side Protectors
Fitted by opening the zip running along the bottom of the harness, below the seat board, and connecting to two rubber bands through the slits in the side protector (make sure to put the rubber band through the slit from the flat side of the side protector to the round side of it). Slide the side protector to its place and close the zip running along the bottom of the harness.

The SPARK II has an integrated emergency parachute compartment, designed to the standard specifications.

It is ideally suited to take the range of APCO Mayday parachutes which have proven themselves time and time again, saving hundreds of pilots over the years

Following APCO legacy special attention given to insure safe and secure emergency parachute operation and deployment under any circumstance. Study the manual - it will help to understand handling and adjustment of the SPARK II - click here for manual
