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 turbulences. The Koyot 3 will bring the needed comfort and safety levels in any situation to make the pilot feel confident and keep on progressing.
Fitted with the revolutionary Nitinol (TNT), the Koyot 3 profile will withstand many hours of ground handling, folding, repacking procedures and trips from one place to another without trouble.
Another technological improvement coming with this glider is the RAM Air Intake. The RAM provides optimized internal pressure for better airflow, and hence, improves the turbulence buffering ability of the wing as well as its capacity to fly at low air speeds. Also, it reduces the risk of collapsing while bringing better control and stability to the overall structure. A glider fitted with RAM has better internal pressure resulting in a steady and safer wing.
The Koyot 3 has a total of 20% line/meters reduction than the previous model. As a result, the wing is now lighter and easier to handle. The inertia of the glider is reduced and its ability to enter the air mass increased. It also has become easier to sort out the lines in preparation for takeoff.
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 effective ears. Moreover, the maillons come with thread locking protection.
The Koyot 3 is a soft wing to steer with the toggles, easy to turn and control. The break travel is 8% longer than with the Koyot 2, increasing the distance to the stall point, and hence promoting passive safety.
Overall, the Koyot 3 is a solid wing with really good gliding ratio and a wide speed range.
It is compact and robust but lightweight. With less weight the inertia is reduced, so the handling improved.
Any great adventure deserves a great beginning. Let’s start your own one with the Koyot 3!
