The Fast One :: F1 – the pinnacle of achievement in technology, performance and feel. A precision tool that in the right hands will produce incomparable results. Our objectives were to produce the best performing high end cross country wing on the market. Safety was the first priority which framed all other parameters and we are extremely proud of the final result.

The F1 is in a class of its own! A cross country wing, intended for classic competitions – a fast, efficient flying machine, but yet as agile as a slalom wing when you want to play. Combining high aspect ratio with a full reflex profile results in performance and efficiency which are packaged into a very user friendly, coherent product that will take any experienced pilot to the next level!

Incorporated into the F1 is our Flow Aligned Ribs (FAR) feature, morphing direction from center to tip, it aligns the ribs with the natural direction of the flow, increasing both performance and stability throughout the speed range. The roll stability of the F1 is especially impressive, allowing for agile, precise handling.

The canopy incorporates 2 functional “3D cuts” for the best possible leading edge shape definition.
The canopy sail tension has been optimized to be a homogeneous unit, solid and reassuring in flight.

The riser / speed system / trim system was re-designed to incorporate all of Apco’s groundbreaking technologies, and has a greater usable range than any wing we have built before. The extensive speed range means you can launch and land at reasonable speeds, but can accelerate (speeds of up to 80 [km/hour]) with comfort during competition, or on the perfect long distance XC flight you’ve been dreaming about – but, be warned, unless your mates are on the F1 too, you will be flying alone!

With the trimmers closed, the F1 will thermal well, and has exceptional glide ratio (for a full reflex profile wing), so if you like to mix it up on a good day, idle or cut the motor and crank it up to cloudbase with ease.

Open the trimmers and enjoy a significant speed increase of approx. 15 [km/h] (without the use of the speed bar).
Choose the speed bar and the OAA system will allow you to accelerate to the maximum in one swift motion!

Construction – weight was saved wherever possible, bringing the weight down to as low as 4 [kg] while retaining APCO’s legendary durability. The low canopy mass, allowing surprisingly easy inflation, especially in nil wind take-offs.

Positioned as the top performing wing in our range, it will satisfy any experienced pilot who can settle for nothing but the best! Learn More
