The APUS RS is an all-terrain miniwing and the universal tool for guaranteed fun for practically any occasion.
The APUS RS is available in standard and hike versions. The design of the hike version has been weight-optimised even further. The APUS RS Hike uses a 27g material throughout for the top and bottom surfaces, instead of the combination of 41 and 34g paraglider fabric.
Furthermore, extremely lightweight Dyneema risers with soft links are used rather than conventional risers. The 27g fabric has limited availability, so the APUS RS Hike is available only in the red/blue colour combination. Special colours can be ordered only for the standard version.
Depending on the wing loading, its flight behavior ranges from standard to dynamically direct (refer to the Versatility chart). At the same time, the balanced handling and pleasant roll damping impart a pleasant and familiar feeling during flight with exceptional performance.
The innovative RAST concept has also proved itself in this category of glider. The delayed filling behavior ensures that the inflation phase is easy to control and it minimises any tendency to launch the pilot unintentionally, particularly in very steep terrain or in strong winds Once in the air, RAST ensures less canopy movement in turbulent air as well as an above-average resistance to collapse, which has a positive effect on performance.
Apus RS Hike 20 and 23
Hike & fly with a touch of the mini wing’s style!
In response to strong demand, we have added to the Apus RS Hike product range with sizes 20 and 23.
These make the link from the mini wing to the thermalling wing, with projected area of 20 / 23m², a weight of only 3.4 / 3.6kg and a weight range of 95 / 110kg (EN-B).
As with the smaller sizes, you will be impressed by the simplicity of the Apus RS Hike 20 and 23 from launch to landing. Risk-conscious mountaineers will appreciate this after a strenuous ascent just as much as hike & fly novices. At the same time, the new sizes are much more than simply a descent method: they cover every eventuality to give you the perfect adventure, from extended thermal flights to dynamic soaring and right through to XC bivvy flying!
Here too the innovative RAST concept provides greater safety and performance, particularly in turbulent conditions off the beaten track.
