Apco kwam met het volgende persbericht:

NEW FROM APCO
LIGHTWEIGHT EMERGENCY PARACHUTE
MAYDAY 16 LIGHT AND MAYDAY 16 SUPERLIGHT
February 2008

Light weight equipment is the latest trend for a few years now.

Following this trend, we were among the pioneers to offer superlight products. Already years ago APCO were one of the first to launch a lightweight paraglider - Fiesta - weighing below 4kg.

Then we were the first to deliver our wings in an unusually light, state of the art paragliding carry bag designed by APCO. The bag is half the weight and bulk of standard bag, but with comfort and quality unrivalled until today (much copied now)

APCO's lightweight harness range launched 2 years ago with the release of our Chairbag - less than 2.5kg, but tons of comfort, safety and quality, certified by DHV. This harness is much appreciated and to the 2 existing designs -Chairbag Classic and Chairbag Plus - we are now adding a third model - Chairbag Integral - truly unique, ground breaking design.

It will be the first lightweight harness which has combined integrated, emergency parachute, Cygnus Airbag protection and reversable carry bag - a unique harness of top quality and comfort (full details to follow soon)

Now, to the main subject of this letter -

In line with the market appetite for lightweight equipment, APCO announcing fresh, cool additions to our emergency parachute range - Mayday 16 Light (LT) and Mayday 16 Superlight (SLT) - designed for pilots who wish to keep their equipment extremely light

The time proven classic DHV certified Mayday 16 from APCO has undergone an intensive diet !!! Keeping the performance and quality same, but just slimming down the weight and bulk to incredible:

? Mayday 16 Superlight - 1,220gr. for maximum load of 100kg.

? Mayday 16 Light - 1,490gr. load tested for 100kg.

Since Mayday 16 is DHV certified and no parameters were changed, there was only the need for an additional load test to have the new chute confirmed.

Infact APCO's Mayday 16 SLT is the lightest chute on the market, in terms of canopy weight for the maximum load it can carry (12.2gr. of canopy per each kilo load)

There are lighter chutes on the market, but they are certified for very small loads - 80kg. and sometimes less.When you compare the weight of the chute against the load it can handle, APCO Mayday 16 SLT emerges as the clear winner. The SLT may seem more expensive but it is far below the prices of the competition (with a hefty, unbridgeable gap) and is also superb value for money.

In the best APCO tradition! MD 16 LT & SLT are additional state of the art equipment, serving pilots for years to come.[/url]
