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 Niviuk Roller. As a result, the leading edge of the wing is more evenly tensioned, which benefits the wing in performance and durability.
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.
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.
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.
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.

“Using the trimmers during a nil-wind takeoff, at first I was surprised at the acceleration of my Roller (size 14), which behaved like a small paraglider. But once I was flying and the trimmers were off it becomes a real speedflying wing with amazing accuracy and control! Barrel rolls become child’s play and you feel completely safe.”
