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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
