Sizing
The SLT Low harness is offered in one size with several sizing adjustments to fit most pilots:

It is highly recommended to use reserve parachute on any flight. APCO offers a range of Mayday parachutes, compatible with the specifically designed Emergency parachute compartment which can be Zipped on and off either side of the harness and is interchangeable with a zipped on Pocket.

The safety webbing will save the pilot in case of side arm failure – it is connected under the seat, vertically aligned on the same load vector as the carabiner to retain the same seating angle in the case of such a failure.

Optional Airbag will provide additional protection in case of impact with the ground.

What does Certification cover in a PPG Harness?

Unlike other harnesses on the market which may have been load tested for strength, this certification confirms all main parameters of the harness, including:

  • Constructional Strength
  • Reserve Container safety and proven deployment sequence functionality
  • Airbag protection

Constructional strength – using a dummy the strength of the harness, mainly the webbing structure, was confirmed to hold loads of up to 15G for a pilot weight of 120kg. This practically means that in case of an accident or reserve deployment, the harness can hold a load of 1,800kg!

Reserve container – our zipped-on emergency parachute container was tested and approved for proper reserve deployment sequence even in high G force emergency situation. The purpose of the test is to prove that even if the pilot is caught in an extreme spiral or any other emergency situation, he can still reach the handle and deploy the reserve parachute without any failure throughout the chain of: reserve handle =>opening of the external container =>pulling out the internal container=>extension of the reserve bridle out of the routing sleeve. From here on if emergency parachute used is certified then all aspects of the deployment sequence are covered.

Our airbag was proven to perform with outstanding results. The test measured a G rating of less than half the required amount for certification within the strict requirements of both EN and LTF (German) certification.

What type of safety webbing do I need?

Choosing your Safety Webbing:
For Low swing arms (PAP, PXP, Kangook, Flyproducts. etc.) – Safety webbing short, 12 mm dyneema webbing (CODE : 80041)

For Mid swing arms. (S-bars, ParaJet, Kangook Swan neck, etc.) – Safety webbing long, 12 mm dyneema webbing (CODE: 80042)

Choosing your Karabiner connector webbing:
For Tube Arms (MiniPlane, R.UltraLight, Air-Conception – typical tube diameter 25 mm) Carabiner Loop, 12 mm dyneema webbing (CODE: 44704)

For for CNC Arms or Omega Shackle Connector (Fly Products, PXP, ParaJet, Kangook, Scott, Yooda) – Figure 8 connection for side arms with carabiner, 25 mm polyester webbing (CODE: 80049)

Notes to ensure you have the correct setup:

Always do a hang check prior to flight.

If your Safety webbing is too short:

  • It will limit the side arm range of movement, reducing weight shift ability.
  • It will make it harder to get into the seat after takeoff.
  • It may alter the Hang / Thrust Angle

If your Safety webbing is too long:

  • In case of asymmetric arm failure, there will be a large difference in carabiner heights between the 2 sides, leading to a dangerous weight shift turn.

What are the Sizing Options for the SLT?

One size fits all – achieved through an innovative zip sizing system, combined with dual height hang points.
Taller pilot use the upper hang points with the zip open, and shorter pilots use the upper hang points with the zipper closed.
In this version of the harness, we have moved the zip to the outside (rear), for increased comfort.

I am a Paramotor Manufacturer, what are the customisation options for the SLT LOW?

The shoulder cover on the harness is removable so you can apply logo by any method you choose locally at your end.

The standard shoulder cover has the Apco logo on the right side and the left is clear for your logo to be applied.

We produce and embroidery only the shoulder cover and hold here in our stock for your future orders of SLT LOWII harnesses.

Once we ship out harnesses to you (any quantity) will replace the standard shoulder cover with the pre prepared Embroidered covers.

For orders of 40 harnesses or more with custom changes contractual or design, please contact our offices.

Split Leg Harness with LOW Hook-In Points

Here it comes – the revolutionary concept – Split Leg Paramotor harness – finally a reality!
We at APCO are proud to have brought to life an idea which has been in the air for a long time – a split-legs paramotor harness which would have no seat-plate, weighing absolute minimum, but in terms of comfort and safety would exceed the standard classic paramotor harness.

Split Legs

The Split-Leg concept for Paramotor flying opens up new possibilities and sets a new standard, which if fast being followed by many other brands.
Giving up on the seat plate immediately allows for reduction of the weight by a half kilo at least. Absence of hard seat plate, makes it easier to create a design where the power is closer to the body (Less torque effect). Split leg seating allows for improved weight shift steering, which is great for anyone from beginners to slalom racers.

CG – Center of Gravity

Effortless takeoff and landing with gravity center moved closer to the back, makes the unit feel lighter.
No seatplate and Split legs arrangement permits undisturbed take-off run. No hard pieces bumping your thighs on launch which makes it way easier and far more comfortable.

Surprisingly, contradicting common belief, APCO designers were able to create a harness which is comfortable, above expectations and makes handling of the power unit on take-off and in flight far simpler and effortless.
The design is rich in options, attentive to the smallest details, with striking appearance of haute couture creation.

Only top quality materials were used, aiming for the best possible finish, comfort and style.

Available in 2 sizes accommodating most pilots.

  • Super Light weight – under 1.5 Kg.
  • Fits most frames with low hook in points
  • Super light ventilated ergonomic back support with specially designed foam to isolate engine vibration.
  • Optional Mirror Kit
  • Extra wide 3D padded shoulder straps for maximum load spreading and carrying comfort.
  • Split leg design for undisturbed running and easier body transition during takeoff and landing
  • Integrated emergency parachute connection loops.
  • New lightweight quick lock buckles specially selected for split legs design – safe and easy to operate.
  • Cloth – high density, strong and durable, but lightweight.
  • All webbing adjusters – lightweight, top grade aluminium, easy to operate.
  • Ergonomic breathable back support
  • Double position main attachment loop for side bar.
  • Loop for pull start bungey cord on both of the shoulder straps.

Apco Swift paraglider racing harness

Apco Swift harness

It has a pod and a prominent fairing, and Apco describe it as “by far the most spohisticated harness they have ever designed”, and a “masteriece of mechanics and aerodynamics”.

We worked hard to achieve a balance between comfort and activeness. The Swift will transmit exactly what the wing is doing, but in a way which is reassuring and not surprising.

The harness is extensively padded for comfort, with wide, load-distributing shoulder straps and a breathable padded back support. The rigid seatplate is covered by dense foam, and load-bearing semi-rigid elements integrated into the back of the harness ensure the pilot’s body stays in the correct position regardless of the webbing adjustment chosen.

The speed system features a double set of ball bearing pulleys for smooth and effortless operation, and an adjustable speed-system pulley which prevents the harness from pitching up or down when the bar is applied.

The Swift has a full 17cm airfoam protector and a Lexan pierce-protection plate, and two reserve containers: one under the seat and the other front mounted. It weighs 6.4kg including the 3-step speedbar, seat plate, leg plates and back protector.
