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.
