More Information

ZEFIRA - APCOs long awaited reentry into challenging high end EN C Class paragliders.
ZEFIRA is of Hebrew origin meaning Morning star, lighting up the skies. And ZEFIRA will indeed be a rising star in the paragliding skies.

APCO as policy, did not launch competition gliders for almost a decade, concentrating instead on so called normal gliders.
Having a top class reputation built on such world beating paragliders like Bagheera, Astra, Xtra and Tigra, reentry into competition scene obligated us to bring a glider which must exceed your most optimistic expectations.

Over the past 2 years, we invested a significant effort in developing a new generation of FAI Class 1 Competition wing named ENIGMA and in parallel developing a new high end EN-D Class wing. ENIGMA was introduced just before Paragliding World Championship 2011 in Spain. Unfortunately, the FAI Class 1 wings were banned following the events at the Championship, making ENIGMA obsolete.
But the effort invested into developing ENIGMA was not wasted and experience gained fully implemented into our latest creation ZEFIRA.
The ZEFIRA, based on ENIGMA revolutionary technology, was conceived as a high end wing, capable of competing with any certified wing.
Our mission with ZEFIRA was to maximize the performance making it competitive with EN-D Class certified wings on the scene at that time.
Having this in mind, we did not neglect the true performance, but kept the stability, handling and safety of ZEFIRA comfortably manageable.



We are proud to present the result of our efforts to you for judgment.
ZEFIRA probably the best performing certified wing in EN-C Class, capable of competing with any wing certified without use of folding lines.
ZEFIRA wing with independently measured and confirmed L/D over 10.7 (best in its Class)
ZEFIRA wing certified to EN-C Class trim and accelerated, confirming the safety and stability
It is the first time we were able to combine truly exceptional performance of ZEFIRA with the reassuring safety and comfortable handling of serial class glider.
ZEFIRA wing with performance that is its best also on speed bar.
Exhibits extremely flat glide graph (L/D curve through entire speed range) with excellent glide at high speeds of 50-55km/h of L/D - 10.

ZEFIRA - lighting up the skies.

The Zefira comes in an ergonomic rucksack incl. an inner stuff bag, compression strap, spares kit, owner's manual and an industry first 3 yr/250 hr warranty - all as standard.

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.
