When the Force was launched, it opened a new era. Paramotoring became easier, safer and much more enjoyable. APCO was a pioneer in launching well balanced reflex wing where performance was at the top, but nothing compromised in terms of safety, flight behaviour and friendly nature of the wing. The Force continues to be part of our current range.

But following pilot's feedback, we felt that the time was right also for different interpretation of perfect package a pilot desires. Crisp, rigid wing with direct, immediate handling, cutting the air effortlessly and turning on a dime with great precision - that's what is needed.

The answer is in 2 new wings - FORCE SP and FORCE SP Touring:

FORCE SP with unsheathed competition lines for maximum performance.
FORCE SP Touring - same as Force SP, but with sheathed lines for durability and longevity.

Born from Force, a sporty version, tuned for extra joy. Same amazing launch and stability, same well built, robust chute, same highly recognisable color design dressed in new colors. On top of this, the FORCE SP and FORCE SP Touring package generates excitement, adrenaline rush and happy smiles for anyone who wants a "spiced up" Force. The design brief for FORCE SP and FORCE SP Touring was injecting NRG genes into the Force to create a new blend - Force with NRG flavor (NRG is our latest, extremely successful slalom comp. wing)

Force family now includes 3 wings – Force, FORCE SP and FORCE SP Touring will continue to be offered side by side.
There will always be different pilots, different tastes and different flying philosophy and now we can cater to all - the choice is yours.

FORCE SP and FORCE SP Touring available in 3 sizes - S, M and L.

FORCE SP and FORCE SP Touring share the certification with Force. Additional in-house test flight sequence (as per LTF 23/05 Part 4.3 paramotor certification requirements) was successfully completed.
FORCE SP uses only 3 rows of bottom lines, drastically reducing overall line length and drag. Unsheathed Dyneema and Vectran lines further minimalize the drag. For bottom gallery sheathed lines are used.

FORCE SP Touring Vectran lines replaced by sheathed SuperAramide lines.

Force and FORCE SP and FORCE SP Touring are purpose designed wings, but for different styles of flying.
The FORCE SP and FORCE SP Touring are designed for agility, combined with stability and performance, for fast cruising over long distances while retaining comfortable, relaxing feel with no need for pilot intervention.
The Force is a classic blend of performance, aimed at Cross Country flying , handling rough air with minimum pilot input. All three are exceptionally easy to launch and land, allowing for equally low take off speed and faultless flare. The legendary stability of Force and its ability to independently float overhead at launch are also passed onto new generation of Force wings.

Color design


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.
