More about Hook 3
The new edge of the En B gliders
In this sport the evolution and a constant search for a glider that flies higher and safer. Nothing remains static and everything changes. The technological advances and the high performances achieved in the top categories are the new expectations that pilots wish to find in their new wing and gliders must constantly excel to be on the par to offer what is expected from them
The Hook 3 is the heir of the experience and knowledge acquired all along years of commitment and research to get the latest technology accessible to all pilots.
In technology, less is more
In the Hook 3 we have managed to reduce to the minimum the parasite resistance. We have cut down the total length of the suspension lines which generates minor friction and consequently increases the performance of the wing. It means 67 metres less lines and 23 per cent less drag than its predecessor.
That reduction is possible thanks to the implementation of the 3-line glider technology. Consequently much meticulous work was required in the inner profile; an elaborate distribution of ribs, intraribs, diagonals ribs and load tapes to distribute the load more efficiency as well as with the minimum anchor points.
This unique internal architecture keeps the profile always in an optimal shape. It controls the lossof pressure and turbulence through the cohesion of the profile; more stable resulting in easier handling.
The trailing edge has been reinforced with small ribs that spread out the pressurein this part of the glider. The addition of these ribs gives the Hook 3 exceptional handling (better and more efficient when turning) and more control and precision.
The RAM air intake in the leading edge guarantees for more aerodynamic efficiency, a consistent airflowleading to easy piloting. The Hook 3 is equipped also with the SLE system (Structured Leading Edge), one of the reasons of the success of our Serial Class and Sport Class wings. Both technologies meet to provide high performance with maximum security.
As a result, the Hook 3 is a technology privileged glider.It is a glider for all pilots who wish to be equipped with latest performance and technology, without sacrificing the usual safety found in the EN B class.The Hook 3 is a soul mate adaptable to your needs.

Eric Gueguen (France)
I just returned a week ago from flying in Cantal with Alain Capoulade (Paragliding Puy Mary) where I reached 2500 meters in front of the astonished eyes of some experience pilots. Also, I flew the glider several times in perfect thermal conditions. The glider behaved really good (small asymmetric collapses). I felt it is robust and efficient in flight. I was always the first to take off and the last to land. It was a real pleasure.
