All of the Apex features are perfectly tailored to the needs of inexperienced or backcountry pilots. A smooth transition of traction as well as a great depower performance make this wing extremely controllable. By powering up in loops it has enough reserves for responding quickly to inclines in the terrain or changes in wind direction.
The Apex has a small number of cells and a thick profile. The kite has been specifically designed for flying in difficult wind conditions with maximum stability. The outer cells remain deliberately unleashed to generate better aerodynamics at the wing tips.
The bridle of the Apex is made from robust, sleeved Dyneema, providing long life even in the toughest conditions. Mixer line and pulleys are precisely matched.
The sail is made from durable 40D ripstop nylon with a great track record of reliability over the years. The inner cells are reinforced with additional webbing at the air vents.
