SLE

Structured Leading Edge

In addition, the SLE provides greater solidity and strength in the leading edge to maintain its shape at all speeds and angles of attack, thus increasing performance.

RAM

RAM Air Intake

The result? Having greater internal pressure means better tolerance of turbulence, greater consistency of the profile shape across the speed range; excellent handling at low speed is achieved by allowing the pilot to extend the braking limit, there is a lower risk of collapse and consequently, greater control and stability.
 

TNT

Titanium Technology

*With the incorporation of the Nitinol rods, the weight of the wing is reduced by 13% compared to nylon.

*Nitinol has closely related properties. It has shape memory and enormous elasticity. This means that the rods maintain their optimum shape even after ultra-compact or bad folding, so that the wing does not suffer from deformation unless the radius at the point of bending is less than 1 cm. 

*The leading edge shape is much more rigid and uniform. This means a much more consistent and progressive inflation; which translates into an easier take-off. The profile is taut at all times, without creases or wrinkles, and fully optimised for all flight phases.

In addition, the rods have a plastic protector at their ends to prevent any damage to the fabric of the wing.

Nitinol is now featured in all our wings.

3DL

3D Leading Edge

As an example, because of its similarity, imagine a rugby ball. In order to produce its characteristic oval shape without wrinkles, its cover is made of several panels - not of just one piece.  
The application of this innovation, in conjunction with the 3DP, is key to converting the perfect shape from 2D to 3D.
 

RSD

Radial Sliced Diagonal

Currently, most paragliders have diagonal ribs connected from the attachment points to the adjacent profiles with the aim of reducing the number of attachment points, the number of lines and improving load distribution.   

In conventional diagonal ribs, loading/unloading cycles away from the highest strength axis of the cloth result in a loss of shape, which reduces the cohesion of the wing and therefore aerodynamic efficiency.

3DP

3D Pattern Cut Optimization

The design of our paraglider and paramotor wings has evolved a lot over the years, significantly affecting the leading edge.

The application of this innovation, in conjunction with the 3DL, is key to converting the perfect shape from 2D to 3D.
 

DES

Double Effect System

This technology allows us to have all the differential available on the speed-bar, so that we do not have to take the hands off the controls to be able to go from the neutral trimmer position to maximum speed, or vice versa.  In case of high speed collapses, it is very useful to be able to recover the neutral position of the risers by releasing the speed-bar without having to close the trimmers manually.  In this way we fly more comfortably and safely.
 

DRS

Drag Reduction Structure

With the application of the DRS, the airflow at the trailing edge is directed more progressively along the adverse pressure gradient with the aim of reducing the aerodynamic drag produced in this area. This increases performance without compromising safety or control of the wing.

ELS

Ear Lock System

The Takoo comes with the Ear Lock System (ELS) as standard. This big ear locking system provides a simple and effective solution for the tandem/dual pilot when quick descents are required.
Advantages of the ELS system:
- Enables the pilot to pull and release the ears as desired.
- Gives full steering control to the pilot with the ears applied.
- Lets the pilot use the ears as long as necessary with no physical effort at all.
- Allows the pilot to use the trimmers without concern or restriction.
- Locks in the ears and prevents accidental opening.
- Does NOT impede the conventional application of ears.
- Can easily be removed without affecting the rest of the equipment.

To use the Ear Lock System, simply pull the ear lock line downward until the knot passes through the ELS (lock system); then move it slightly horizontally forward, locking the knot in the groove. To release, pull the ear lock line down and release the knot from the groove. Then guide it vertically as it goes upward and back through the ELS. It is better to release the two ears separately (asymmetrically).

IKS

Interlock System

The IKS1000 is designed and dimensioned as a connection system between the risers and the lines. It has a breaking load of 1055 kg, which greatly exceeds that of the classic 3 mm (550 kg) maillon, but with a much less weight. This feature makes it a key element in the entire range of P-Series (lightweight) wings, which are delivered with this technology as standard.

The IKS3000 is designed to connect the risers and/or the parachute with the harness. Its breaking load of 2960 kg makes it an ultralight alternative to the 7 mm (3125 kg) maillon or an aluminium carabiner (2000 kg). The IKS3000 design and concept make it ideal for mountaineering, hike & fly and ultralight equipment.
 

RSP

Reflex System Profile

The RSP is a profile designed to fit the technical characteristics of paramotor wings. It is a profile with self-stabilizing characteristics that gives greater pitch stability and provides more safety for the pilot when the angle of attack is lower (accelerated flight).  

STE

Structured Trailing Edge

The STE provides a rigid structure at the trailing edge in order to maintain its shape in accelerated flight. In addition, the rigidity provided by these elements improves the load distribution, reducing wrinkles, and consequently drag, and therefore ensuring better performance.  

C2B

C2B System

This new integrated system on the risers allows a 3-liner to be flown as if it were a 2-liner. Steering with the C-risers automatically includes the B-risers so the wing has a more efficient maneuverability with better control and precision without deforming the profile.

SLE

Structured Leading Edge

The SLE is a rigid structure located at the leading edge of the wing that eliminates the need for old-fashioned mylar reinforcements in this area, thus reducing the weight and increasing the durability of the wing. The leading edge will also have better turbulence absorbing qualities.

RAM

RAM Air Intake

The Ram Air Intake system is characterised by the arrangement of the air inlets, to ensure optimal maintenance of internal pressure across the the whole range of angles of attack.

TNT

Titanium Technology

Nitinol is a combination of 50% nickel and 50% titanium. This technology provides three outstanding benefits that increase the performance of the wing, compared to plastic rods.

3DL

3D Leading Edge

3DL technology is an adjustment of the fabric at the leading edge of the wing to control the ballooning and the creases that are generated by the curvature in this area. The leading edge is then divided into sub-panels which are sewn into each of the cells at the front of the wing. As a result, the leading edge of the wing is more evenly tensioned, which benefits the wing in performance and durability.

RSD

Radial Sliced Diagonal

RSD (Radial Sliced Diagonal) technology improves the internal structure of the wing, incorporating different independent diagonal ribs oriented more efficiently, i.e. in the optimal direction of the fabric, improving the strength and reducing weight and deformation.

3DP

3D Pattern Cut Optimization

This technology seeks to implement the best orientation of the cloth on each panel according to its location on the leading edge. If the cloth pattern is correctly aligned with the load axes, the cloth suffers less deformation flight after flight, so the leading edge keeps its shape better and maintains its durability over time.

DES

Double Effect System

The DES is a system that allows you to link the trimmers of the rear risers (C and D) with the speed-bar. The DES means the wing launches with the neutral (slowest) setting and as the A and B risers are accelerated the rear risers (C and D) are released.

DRS

Drag Reduction Structure

With the application of the DRS, the airflow at the trailing edge is directed more progressively along the adverse pressure gradient with the aim of reducing the aerodynamic drag produced in this area. This increases performance without compromising safety or control of the wing.

ELS

Ear Lock System

On a solo glider when the pilot has pulled big ears, they can only fly using weight-shift. On a tandem paraglider, although with the help of the passenger it is possible to achieve some control, in most cases this is insufficient when it is really needed. This is why Niviuk developed the ELS.

IKS

Interlock System

Niviuk has developed two types - the IKS1000 and the IKS3000, each one designed as a connection system for different parts of the wing.
The IKS technology is an advance towards a greater lightness in wings and equipment, without losing effectiveness and providing the same degree of safety and strength.

RSP

Reflex System Profile

The RSP is a profile designed to fit the technical characteristics of paramotor wings. It is a profile with self-stabilizing characteristics that gives greater pitch stability and provides more safety for the pilot when the angle of attack is lower (accelerated flight).

STE
