DOUBLE RESERVE PARACHUTE POCKET   |   HIGHLY PRECISE STEERING   |   GREAT PASSIVE SAFETY (BUMPAIR 17)

 

The geometry of the harness derives from the ACRO3, the reference in the ACRO world. Highly precise steering, mono block comfort to be as one with the wing in all maneuvers. The straps are now securely fastened to the chest strap for easier play on the ground.

Hours on end flying and running with the ACRO 3 let Théo, Tim, Raul and the SUPAIR designers overhaul the entire structure of the harness for a heightened end product.

All the riser sleeves are bigger, some are made of extensible material to easily accommodate any type of emergency parachute bridles (notably Rogallo type).

The parachute pockets have overlapping flaps offering an excellent container closing. Both parachute handles fit into the harness, are easy to grab, and highly visible without impeding manipulation.

The ACRO 4 is more equipped than the ACRO 3 and is delivered with multiple accessories.

 

“The ACRO 4 was a project close to my heart as a professional acro pilot because it is one of my main tools for day-to-day work. After years using the ACRO 3, I found it relatively easy to discover common grounds between the two models and a leading thread to follow for its replacement. It was a long-term project involving gradual upgrades to every important aspect of the product. We spent our season testing the ACRO 4 on the ground in real conditions to be certain to best match pilots expectations regardless of their technical level. Today I can say that we are proud of the end result made possible by SUPAIR and all the improvements made to the product along the way. I believe that the ACRO 4 is the perfect compromise harness for recreational and professional freestyle pilots alike, and will delight the ACRO 3 users because of all its assets derived out of our know-how and experience in this project”

What our pilots have to say :

“This harness was highly anticipated, it has been a real challenge overcoming the Acro3, but they did it! I’m really happy to Fly the Acro4 today! Really comfortable with a very good transmission which allows an ultra precise piloting I enjoy. I also appreciate the large back storage pocket who fit with all the gear I need for a long acro training session. The reserve containers are compact and better finished. Welcome to the Acro4 !”
Horacio Llorens

“I love flying with the ACRO-4 because its backrest support is superior to that of the ACRO-3, giving me better piloting precision and freedom of movement in the most committed figures. The changes made make it more enjoyable on a daily basis to carry, takeoff and fly with. It additionally kept all the ACRO-3’s assets I really liked.”
Theo de Blic

“I feel good flying the Acro4, we kept the Acro3’s frame who was really comfortable. Very precise and easy to play with, it’s also great to handle on the ground, Acro3’s defects have disappeared to get close to perfection! In addition, the Acro4 offers huge seat depth adjustment to low the gravity center to precisely adjust his position and go further on the mastery of maneuvers.”
