APCO Blade Harness
The BLADE is APCO’s first competition harness. When APCO deciding to launch such a harness, they made sure it would be outstanding in its performance: Safety, Drag Reduction, Quality and Comfort. BLADE is a pod harness, designed and aimed at competition pilots, but equally well suited to cross country and experienced recreational pilots. It shares the same design philosophy as the rest of APCO’s harness range.

The BLADE stands out for its comfort, finish and clean lines. The drag reduction of BLADE is among the best in its class. The weight of the BLADE harness is on a par or lighter than most popular competition harnesses available today, but without compromising on its durability or safety. BLADE‘s geometry gives great comfort, with perfect adjustment possibilities. Two PVC Battens aid in spreading the load evenly along the back, increasing comfort while reducing the amount of webbing supports required. The BLADE has a back mounted reserve with the handle on the right side of the harness, which gives you both an easy accessible reserve and a well balanced harness in the air. The clean aerodynamic form of the BLADE reduces drag created by the pilot and Harness, giving you higher performance all round.

Pilot Protection:

The pilot protection environment of BLADE shares the same elements as the rest of our range, including airfoam protector to provide maximum protection to the pilot and integrated emergency parachute compartment. Designed to the standard specifications, it is ideally suited to take the range of APCO Mayday parachutes.
