The APCO NRG Pro is the ultimate answer to the fast growing, challenging segment of purpose built wings designed for professional slalom racing.

NRG Pro designed and built to be the winner in its category, aimed to outperform anything else out there.

Not too long ago our first slalom wing - NRG was introduced. It proved to be the fastest and one of the most agile paramotor wings. But now it's time to take it up to the next level. 75 km/h on NRG was just not fast enough - so we came up with NRG Pro which is even faster, racier, nippier, swifter... (and surprisingly rock solid safe!)
NRG Pro takes-off and lands at slower speed than you would expect, making flying easy. All thanks to new highly efficient reflex profile.

NRG Pro will excite every experienced pilot - you will be infected by the racing virus instantly. The adrenaline rush will go through the roof and your heart rate will match the speed of the wing.

NRG Pro purpose built for speed and agility to win the race, or just for low level ground skimming fun and long distance speed racing.

WARNING:

DO NOT! test fly this wing, unless you are ready to buy it!

This wing is highly addictive.



NRG Pro designed for pilots who have the skills
to handle the speed, performance and agility the wing offers.
Previous slalom racing experience and sufficient training
is required to safely fly NRG Pro.
The wing is not suitable for beginner leisure pilot.

CONSTRUCTION AND MATERIALS


Materials
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.
