NIVIUK Koyot 3 Paraglider


If thinking about flying keeps you awake, dreaming of flying keeps you asleep and if flying keeps you alive, go ahead.



NIVIUK Koyot 3 Paraglider

The Koyot 3 is a simple and emotive glider. It is the ideal partner for taking the first steps of this new adventure. Steady, secure and pleasant, it will also bring the necessary EN A performance touch to also enjoy cross country flights.

The internal structure design of the Koyot 3 makes it a very compact glider able to absorb the turbulence. 

It is compact and robust but lightweight. With less weight, the inertia is reduced, so the handling improved.

For better identification during the pre-flight phase, the risers now come in different colours to differentiate right from left. The A riser is split ( Split-A ) to help in pulling active ears. Moreover, the maillons come with thread locking protection.

Overall, the Koyot 3 is a solid wing with outstanding gliding ratio and a wide speed range.

Its friendly behaviour from taking off to landing brings a true safety and comfort compromise. The key ingredient to explore the skies with peace of mind. The Koyot 3 is a soft wing to steer with the toggles, easy to turn and control. 

The SLE provides more rigidity and stability along the span of the leading edge.  Also allowing full flexibility along both the vertical and horizontal axis of each open cell. The SLE ensures ease of movement on the ground and high security in the air during turbulence and while flying at speed.

With the SLE system, there is no longer a need to use large amounts of Mylar material to achieve leading edge reinforcement. This reduction in material has reduced the weight of the leading edge, and the result is precise handling on the ground and easier launches.

The SLE also helps to prevent deformation of the leading edge Mylars and therefore with correct care will extend the life and efficiency of your glider.

In addition to the SLE, we work on new geometry and layout of the internal reinforcement. This new internal re-structuring offers better overall cohesion of the glider and incredible stability during turbulence.

Continually innovating, we always are on the hunt, for the latest and best materials to helps us design optimal products. For this reason, and after an extensive evaluation of its benefits and qualities, we decided to be the firsts manufacturer to use Nitinol in our glider line.

Nitinol is an alloy of 50% nickel and 50% titanium. This technology in our rods offers three significant advantages of optimising the performance of a paraglider, compared to those made out of Nylon:

Nitinol rods in the profile has the immediate result of substantially reducing the overall weight of the wing by about 13%. Nitinol has two particular properties: shape memory and superelasticity. The flexible rods always regain their optimal functional shape, even after tight bending, no wrinkles or residual mechanical alterations affect their integrity.
As a result, the wing’s leading edge is then performed on the ground and allows a stable, progressive inflation phase to take place, which considerably facilitates the takeoff. The wing surface is perfectly taut, and without parasitic cloth movements, the glide is thus optimised in all flight phases.

Also, the rods are outfitted with plastic protectors at their ends to prevent fabric damage.

The Nitinol application has already become a reality in some of our gliders such as Hook 4, the lkuma, the Peak 4, the Icepeak 8, the Skin or our light gliders (Skin P and Artik P).

Evolution and continuously improving in all our products is the essence of the DNA of Niviuk’s R&D team. Thanks to the new technologies created over recent years, we have conceived new and more evolved and higher performing gliders. In this context, the RAM Air Intake technology should be pointed out. Ram Air Intake technology allows an optimal position for the air intakes (below the leading edge of the glider). It creates excellent internal pressure as well as an improvement of the laminar flow on intrados. What’s the result? Gaining turbulent air absorption in the leading edge, more consistency in variable speed and better performance while assuring maximum security.

Available as 22 – 24 – 26 – 28 – 31
