New generation FLEXON® batten system incorporated (see below) for the leading edge of the ribs, insuring perfect profile shape instead of traditional Mylar reinforcement. FLEXON® battens reduce the weight of the glider by an additional 500gr without any sign of deterioration during the life span of the glider.

Additional advantage of Apco’s FLEXON batten is that it is practically indestructable.
With Apco’s FLEXON batten there is no need for special care or folding methods. They always come back to their original shape, safeguarding the performance and launch over the lifespan of the glider

We guess you noted that recently quite a few respected paragliding brands have borrowed the Flexon batten system for their products and claim to be the innovators, branding the system with fancy names.
