Special attention was given to improve the rigidity of the wing, polish the handling, and optimize its feedback - all this combined with increased pilot comfort and safety.

Thrust IV born from perfect blend of the best in Thrust III and Thrust HP. In all it is much improved paramotor wing, as well as a very nice, sweet, free flying glider for stress-free, enjoyable flying under power or just soaring.

Thrust IV implements all the traditional APCO features - SRS® (Stall Recovery System) as standard, HIT valve, FLEXON batten and now also with ball bearing pulleys on new redesigned 20mm. risers.

SRS® is designed to be an important feature, safe-guarding you incase of deep stall, but it is also a great help in improving launch characteristics when wing hesitates to come up over head. The THRUST launch was always spotless, but now its even better - foolproof.

For pilot looking for dual purpose wing - Thrust IV is THE choice.
