SWING APUS RS - miniwing
…heading for adventure!
The APUS RS is an all-terrain miniwing and the universal tool for guaranteed fun for practically any occasion.
Depending on the version (APUS RS or APUS RS Hike), it has a number of uses ranging from soaring in strong winds to dynamic flying at your local site, right through to Hike & Fly tours. What’s more, it will fit perfectly in your luggage thanks to its packed size and light weight.
This means the APUS RS is intended for all paraglider pilots and keen miniwing pilots, for whom the desire for adventure and a passion for flying have top priority.
The APUS RS is available in standard and hike versions. The design of the hike version has been weight-optimised even further. The APUS RS Hike uses a 27g material throughout for the top and bottom surfaces, instead of the combination of 41 and 34g paraglider fabric. Furthermore, extremely lightweight Dyneema risers with soft links are used rather than conventional risers.
The 27g fabric has limited availability, so the APUS RS Hike is available only in the red/blue colour combination. Special colours can be ordered only for the standard version.

Apus RS Hike 20 and 23
In response to strong demand, we have added to the Apus RS Hike product range with sizes 20 and 23.
These make the link from the miniwing to the thermalling wing, with projected area of 20 / 23m², a weight of only 3.4 / 3.6kg and a weight range of 95 / 110kg (EN-B).
As with the smaller sizes, you will be impressed by the simplicity of the Apus RS Hike 20 and 23 from launch to landing. Risk-conscious mountaineers will appreciate this after a strenuous ascent just as much as hike & fly novices. At the same time, the new sizes are much more than simply a descent method: they cover every eventuality to give you the perfect adventure, from extended thermal flights to dynamic soaring and right through to XC bivvy flying!
Here too the innovative RAST concept provides greater safety and performance, particularly in turbulent conditions off the beaten track.
Who should fly the Apus RS?
The APUS RS is designed for all Paraglider pilots and passionate Miniwing pilots, for whom the desire for adventure and the passion for flying are in the focus. From long thermal flights to dynamic soaring and XC bivouac flights, the APUS RS offers you all the possibilities for your perfect adventure!
The innovative RAST concept is also the key for more safety and performance, especially in turbulent conditions off the beaten track.
RAST - for maximum control
On paragliders with RAST® the canopy is divided into different internal pressurised sections by one or more fabric panels, some with valves running crossways to the direction of flight. This makes it possible to influence the air flows within the canopy.
With RAST, the air equalisation flows within the paraglider canopy can be regulated through defined openings. This applies both when filling,(during take-off) and when emptying. In the case of pressure loss, e.g. caused by canopy collapse in turbulent air, the relative internal pressure of the CORE section increases, while the BUFFER section absorbs the introduced energy by deformation. Furthermore, RAST can be used as an additional support to the leading and trailing edge, which has a positive effect on flight comfort. As RAST connects the ribs over the entire profile height, the construction has a stiffening effect and reinforcements and/or stiffening elements can be saved or even completely replaced by this special construction method.
In the APUS RS, RAST® has been optimized for the following features:
Easiest launch behavior in difficult terrain or in strong winds
High canopy stability
Optional trimmer risers for the Apus RS
With the optionally available trimmer risers, the already high trim speed of the Apus RS can be increased by another approx. 6km/h.
In coastal soaring, this is especially helpful during takeoff to get away from the compression at the soaring edge in strong winds. Thanks to RAST, the Apus RS remains very stable and controllable even with open trimmers.
The sewn T-handle allows the trimmer to be grabbed and closed quickly and securely when needed.
