Light and durable
The Hook 6 features reinforced Kevlar risers which weigh less and are much stronger. The webbing has been reduced from 21 mm to 12 mm. Therefore, the drag has been subtly reduced.

The canopy is made of light and durable materials reducing the weight of the glider without compromising its durability.

The leading edge is made of Dokdo 40 gr/m2 and the rest of the canopy is made of Dokdo 36 gr/m2 (the wing weighs only 4.2 kg in size 22).

Smooth and progressive
Completely solid throughout the speed range to give the pilot confidence. Ability to take off from any terrain, with easy and progressive inflation. The long brake travel offers full control, allowing for a smooth and much safer landing.

New internal structure

A new design with a strategic distribution of the slots improves the load distribution inside the glider while making it lighter.

New optimised arc

A redesigned arc to achieve the perfect balance in terms of turn and roll stability.

Enhanced durability

The use of new mini-ribs in the trailing edge decreases drag and improves the aerodynamic shape of the wing. DRS technology has been optimised: the cutting of the trailing edge permits full intergradation of the mini-ribs without the use of external stitching.

Precise manufacture

Precision profile manufacture achieves a much cleaner finish to avoid creases and minimise aerodynamic drag. This harmonises stability, speed and performance.

New brake pulley

For increased strength and durability, the Hook 6 P risers feature with a small pulley with ball bearings (developed together with Harken) at the brake connection.

Nitinol rods in the profile

As in our other wings, Nitinol rods are used to maintain the optimal shape of the canopy, even after ultra-compact folding.

The perfect finish

Its leading edge has a structured design (SLE technology), an extra seam on the span axis (3DL technology) and ideal tensioning without deformations based on the 3DP technology. The use of these technologies ensures the durability of the glider.
