AboutACRO 4

The geometry of the harness is the ACRO 3 one: THE reference in the acro world. Very precise piloting, one-piece comfort to be at one with the glider in all manoeuvres. The shoulder straps are now blocked on the chest strap, which allows a better ease in the games on the ground.

Hours and hours of flight and running with the ACRO 3 allowed Theo, Tim, Raul and the SUPAIR designers to rework the entire container of the harness for an even higher finish.

The gusseted back pocket allows you to carry equipment between flights and to have a compact harness on flight.

All parachute risers sleeves are larger, some of them made of expandable material to easily accommodate all types of risers (Rogallo type in particular). The pockets parachutes have overlapping flaps for excellent closing. The two parachute handles fit perfectly into the harness, are easy to grip and highly visible without being in the way when handling. Parachute under-seat pocket  compatible with Beamer 2 and Beamer 3. 

The ACRO 4 comes with many accessories, making it more complete than the ACRO 3: steel carabiners, quick links, BUMPAIR, risers, handles, O-ring / toric ring, etc.

What has changed from ACRO 3:

  • The design of the harness is tighter, especially the back pocket with gusset which becomes very compact in flight and the shoulder straps are now fixed on the belly.
  • The fabric is unchanged (ultra resistant Cordura 500d) but the colour of the harness has changed: black has been replaced by petrol blue !
  • Simplified access to the Bumpair: no more zipper that could be damaged over time
  • Pockets with greater volume and easier access
  • Pre-equipped with a hydration system: flexible water bottle attachment in the back pocket and pipette passage

"We were looking forward to this harness , the challenge of outperforming the Acro3 was great but they did it! I am very happy to fly the Acro4 today. Very comfortable at flight, it offers a very good transmission which makes it possible to be ultra precise in piloting. I like the large rear pocket which allows me to store everything I need for the big Acro sessions. The parachute containers are compact and a remarkable effort has been made in the finishing touches. The era of the Acro4 has finally begun!
Horacio Llorens - Professional pilot
"I love flying the Acro4 because it has a better back support than the Acro3 and it gives me more precision and freedom in the most committed figures. The changes made to the Acro4 make it more comfortable in all phases of the carry, take off and flight. In addition, it retains all the features that I liked in the Acro3.
Théo De Blic - Professional pilot
"I feel good in the Acro4, we kept the chassis of the Acro3 which was already very comfortable. Very precise and playful on flight, it is also pleasant to handle on the ground, the defects of the Acro3 have been erased, we have reached perfection! In addition, the Acro4 offers a great depth ofSeat which allows you to lower your centre of gravity, it's ideal to adjust your positioning and go even further in the control of manoeuvres.
Tim Alongi - Professional pilot
"The Acro 4 is a project that has been close to my heart as a professional acro pilot as it is one of my main working tools on a daily basis. After years of use of the Acro 3, it was quite easy to find ways to improve it and to find a line driver for its replacement. It was a long term project where we improved little by little everything that we thought was important. We spent our season testing the Acro 4 in the field in real conditions to make sure that it would meet the expectations of pilots at all levels. Today I can say that we are proud of the result Supair has achieved and the changes it has made. I think that the Acro 4 is the perfect compromise for all freestyle pilots, amateur or professional, and that it will delight all Acro 3 users because we have put all our know-how and experience into this project.
