SPARK Harness


SPARK - the latest, most sophisticated sports harness on the APCO range, has been launched by our R&D team.

The SPARK stands out for its comfort, finish and clean lines. The concept of SPARK is based on latest harness design principles, taking APCO technology to new heights.

Now even more comfortable, more sophisticated and sleeker than any other harness on our range.

SPARK shares the philosophy and design approach with rest of our harnesses.

SPARK will appeal to pilots who prefer a classic harness, offering total comfort, maximum security, blended with stylish design and loads of extras.

The pilot protection environment of SPARK shares the same elements as EDGE, including full airfoam backprotector with backplate and side protectors, but takes pilot safety protection even further.

Foam Protector and Lexan Sheet
The SPARK has a pilot protection system, combining the usual airfoam type protector with a lexan sheet (47143) which aids in spreading the load over the absorbing area of the airfoam and a Polystyrene side impact protector which offers the maximum protection available to a paraglider pilot today.

Test results conducted by DHV confirm that our standard 15cm Airfoam protector is fully in line with DHV requirements when used in combination with SPARK type harness.

Side Protectors
It is fitted by opening the zip running along the bottom of the harness, below the seat board, and connecting it to two rubber bands through the slits made in the side protector (make sure to put the rubber band through the slit from the flat side of the side protector to the round side of it). Slide the side protector to its place and close the zip running along the bottom of the harness.

The SPARK has an integrated emergency parachute compartment, designed to the standard specifications.

It is ideally suited to take the range of APCO Mayday parachutes which have proven themselves time and time again, saving hundreds of pilots over the years
