Originally introduced by APCO in the mid 1990’s, the trailing edge mini-ribs are designed to enhance the trailing edge area and reduce the drag of canopy.
The beauty of this feature is that it is not a trade-off of performance for safety. The gain in performance does not lead to any reduction in safety or handling.
First implemented on the famous APCO record beating wing Bagheera in 1996 and followed by Simba, Lambada, Keara, Tigra and more.
It was 30 years later when the industry finally realized the huge advantage of APCO’s mini-ribs and they started popping out on other brand wings becoming an industry standard feature today.
