Description

As it’s name suggests, the KARISMA is a wing with a personality of its own.

It is the type of wing which takes all the advantages of paragliding and emphasizes those advantages to complete the best flying experience for beginner to intermediate pilots.

The KARISMA is the Evolution of the Karma EVO. It possesses all the Karma virtues but has been fully redesigned from the ground up, and presents significant improvement in all aspects to be a worthy addition to APCO’s range.

Constructed with the students in mind, and instructors feedback – it is super easy glider to fly – Simple and straight forward.

A new specially developed APP type profile (Sharknose) was used.
Our APP profile is instrumental in contributing to the safety of the wing by increasing and retaining internal pressure of the canopy across the entire speed range. It is a big step in passive safety, but an even bigger step in providing the pilot with an exciting flight experience. KARISMA is well balanced, combining excellent handling with outstanding performance and pilot friendly behavior.

Three line construction that converges into a clean and simple to understand 3 leg riser makes inflation and ground handling a breeze – no messy risers and lines tangled in reverse launch anymore. For students, an accelerated learning curve is guaranteed. Safely getting them into the air and flying sooner than ever before.

    Characteristics

    • TAKE OFF

      Effortless and intuitive. The 3 leg riser dramatically simplifies things for the beginner. Front launch or reverse is always easy with the APP profile (shark nose), The wing will rise slowly and controllably overhead allowing time to glance up and safely take-off.

    • LANDING

      Landing is a breeze as the KARISMA is incredibly stall resistant and flaring will slow you down almost to a standstill!

    • THERMALLING

      the glider will bank into a coordinated turn and pull itself into the core almost automatically. This is by far our best thermalling EN A wing ever and this will be evident when students attempt their first cross country flights, encouraging them to progress and evolve in the sport to the next level.

    • PERFORMANCE

      Glide at trim speed is among the best in its class, but the real advantage is when applying the speed system. Through its entire acceleration range, KARISMA will efficiently cut through the air with minimal sink rate. Adding both performance and another level of safety for EN A wings.

    • PILOT FEEDBACK

      simple to understand is how to summarize the KARISMA. The wing is both reassuring and precise in its pilot feedback. It is a forgiving wing for beginners, and when directed correctly, it will immediately respond without hesitation.

    • CONSTRUCTION

      According to Apco’s legendary tradition for durability – the construction of the wing is bullet proof! Extremely durable cloth combined with proven construction designed to withstand students abuse for as long as necessary.

    • KARISMA

      The Karisma is a wing with enough personality to carry you from your first flights all the way to cross country adventures.

      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/rectangular loops that attach the lines to the risers are made of stainless steel.
