More Information

APCO Twister - this is a wing you certainly remember. It was one of the pioneers on the ACRO scene and definitely one of the most desirable wings.

Many ACRO pilots fell instantly in love with Twister. The world's best pilots were flying Twisters - numerous new ACRO manuevers became possible due to the exceptional characteristics of Twister.

It was a difficult challenge to make the new wing better than the original Twister.

Now we are proud to report our results - TWISTER 18 MKII is born, it is a refined, further improved version.

Dressed in the same striking, eye-catching color design - Twister 18 MKII draws the attention of pilots and the crowd.

We are certain it will catch your eye too

Keeping all the virtues of Twister, it now also features:

  • Improved Infinity tumbling
  • More stable helico with less twist tendency
  • Smoother G forces
  • Higher energy wing
  • Latest evolution of Flexon battens design
  • HIT valve® equipped on L/E for rock solid stability
  • Bridged solid L\E
Flexon battens® and HIT Valves® are exclusive APCO innovations, often imitated, never matched!!


In honor of Twister II, an action packed movie by Yves Hohl and Robin Cavanak

Materials
The glider is made from tear resistant Ripstop Nylon cloth, which is P.U. coated to zero porosity and then siliconized to give the fabric high resistance to the elements. Different cloth is used for the top, bottom and ribs due to their different functions. The lines are made of superaramid covered with a polyester sheath for protection against UV, wear and abrasion. The bottom section of the brake lines is made of polyester because of its better mechanical properties. The karabiners that attach the lines to the risers are made of stainless steel.
