For detailed comparison between NRG PRO II and NRG XC II Q&A below »

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

NRG Pro II is a complete redesign of the previous NRG – and is now a faster, more aggressive wing with pylon racing performance and spirit!

The pylon racing turning sequence of:
»  FULL SPEED BAR TO THE PYLON » RELEASE SPEED BAR » TIGHT TURN » FULL SPEED BAR TO NEXT PYLON »
has been perfected to a point where it is only the pilot who can limit the wing and never the opposite!

HIT VALVES® – A highly stable, full reflex profile with our HIT valves incorporated, allows pushing this wing beyond any familiar boundaries.

OAA® system – incorporated into NRG Pro II risers allows for use of full speed range using the speed bar only.
The change from trim speed to fully accelerated is faster than ever before with the OAA system.
For normal flight OAA can be easily disengaged, allowing for operation of trimmers separate from speed bar.

2D Steering – allows for one hand use of both tip steering and main brakes.

The NRG PRO is the favorite wing for most professional pilots, but now it’s time to take it up to the next level. NRG Pro II is an adrenaline junkies dream and still rock solid safe!

NRG Pro II takes-off and lands at slower speed than you would expect, making flying easy. All thanks to new highly efficient reflex profile.

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

The wing uses the same long lasting cloth and fully sheathed durable lines as on previous APCO wings. This is to guarantee its integrity for entire expanded lifespan of the wing. Nevertheless we made maximum effort to reduce the weight of the wing thanks to advanced solutions applied.

APCO is traditionally known for using materials and building techniques which offer double and triple lifespan over the expected. 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.
The bottom section of the brake lines is made of Polyester because of its better mechanical properties. The Karabiners that attach the lines to the risers are made of stainless steel.

Difference between NRG PRO II and NRG XC II ??

The Pro 2 is a much more agile and quick wing then the Pro1.
It is also faster in transition from trim speed to accelerated and back to trim speed – like in pylon racing.
In general, we have made a bigger difference between the NRG XC to the NRG PRO.}
The NRG XC II is now with ABS and more XC oriented then it used to be and the PRO is a racier wing.
The NRG PRO II too is faster than the PRO, but this is mainly due to the higher Anadral !

OAA - what should be the trimmer settings?

From the Manual “In order to engage the OAA one must detach the brummel hooks connected to the rear risers below the trimmers. Prior to using the speed system one must move the trimmers to the neutral position (all risers level). To disengage the OAA one must reattach the brummel hooks on the rear riser. When operating the speed system with the OAA disengaged one must release the trimmers open before activating the speed system.”

Basically when using OAA the trimmers should be at zero position and not opened completely.

The OAA brummel hooks can be managed in the air, just recommended not to adjust close the ground – pay attention that you have enough altitude (to avoid obstacles and have the time to react for engine failure etc.)
