Apco Edge Paragliding Harness
Apco’s EDGE paragliding harness shares the principles and design approach common to traditional APCO harnesses in a stylish narrower profile desired by intermediate and advanced paraglider pilots. It will appeal to pilots who prefer a classic harness with total comfort, maximum security and loads of extras, with reduction in volume and weight and insuring trouble-free long-lasting service. (But please don’t fly it with Tevas!)

EDGE harness includes a redesigned air foam protector – with improved absorption qualities, tested and certified by the DHV. The Edge has a sophisticated webbing system to allow both a more upright sitting position or a more supine approach, to get the most comfortable and efficient position for thermalling as well as transitions on speed bar. It also makes for more comfortable kiting and launching, as well as “standing tall” for landing. Have a detailed look at the EDGE's webbing structure »
