Kougar 2: DAGC
The Kougar 3 is part of the new generation of Niviuk paramotor wings offering a high level of technological innovations combined with very intuitive and accessible handling. The complexity of the design makes it easy to fly and allows long cross-country flights in a much more efficient and relaxed way.
An excellent advantage is the ease with which it reaches high speeds without affecting its stability. The Kougar 3 is a very solid and compact wing thanks to its moderate aspect ratio (5.7) which contributes to the pilot feeling safe and confident at all times.
The new Kougar features a new and evolved reflex profile that makes the wing solid across both its load and speed ranges. A simple and immediate take-off is guaranteed through instant inflation where the glider effortlessly rises over the pilot. Also thanks to its new profile, the Kougar 3 is very effective at low speed, so much less speed and throttle is needed when taking off. This also reduces fuel consumption and increases the performance of the wing once airborne.
Once in flight, its manoeuvrability and stability are the first things that will surprise you and demonstrate the capabilities of this new generation of Niviuk paragliders, as it even allows you to fly in thermals efficiently. As well as its outstanding performance, the Kougar 3 distinguishes itself with its incredible top speed and the ease of reaching up to 80 km/h (±3), while remaining solid and compact.
The trimmers and the speed-bar can be used together to reach the maximum speed, ensuring a maximum differential of 24 cm between the A and C risers. With this limit on the maximum angle of attack, the pilot never has to worry about exceeding the limit of acceleration and can focus on enjoying the rest of the flight.
Simultaneously, the combination of these new risers and the design of the profile allow greater speed retention when flying slowly and this permits a smoother and safer landing.
The Kougar 3 also has some new features on the controls, such as a new one-way magnet system to fix the brake handle, the possibility of adjusting the height of the brake magnet or the integration of specific controls for competition.
At Niviuk their philosophy is to incorporate all of their experience and know-how into every wing design and the Kougar 3 shows this. For example, by applying the same tensioning process that is used in new the Niviuk competition wing, the Icepeak Evox.
This leads to a much cleaner profile and leading-edge, no creases, no vibrations and perfect material tensioning so that the wing can perform beyond what has been possible before.
The perfect wing to make the perfect machine. Accessibility, stability and top performance. The next generation on PPG wings is already here.
Faster than ever
A new design with a faster profile and a more solid, cleaner leading edge means a top speed of 80 km/h (±3).
Uniquely accessible with instant inflation and easy take off without requiring a lot of acceleration.
Safe and stable
A solid and compact PPG wing that is extremely stable with high passive safety in all phases of flight.
3D Leading Edge
Adding an extra seam to the leading edge on the span axis of the glider helps to shape a compact 3D profile and have better connections to the new 3DP front panel's layout.
3D Pattern Cut
The latest glider generation requires a new pattern design and an optimized fabric cutting process based on 3D technology.
Drag Reduction Structure
With the Drag reduction Structure technology, the trailing edge has been reinforced with small ribs that makes this part of the glider flatter to spread the pressure out evenly. It means better air-flow and less drag on this important part of the glider.
RAM Air Intake
Evolution and constant improving in all Niviuk products are 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.
Reflex System Profile
The highly efficient Reflex System Profile (RSP), unlike conventional reflex designs, requires less engine power to achieve greater thrust, thus resulting in lower fuel consumption, more autonomy and higher overall motor efficiency.
Structured Leading Edge
The SLE provides more rigidity and stability along the span of the leading edge but also allows 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 whilst flying at speed.
Constantly innovating, we always are on the hunt, looking 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.
"I was a little uncertain as to how you could better the Kougar 2, as it's been a glider that I have enjoyed immensely and it really has been my best flying buddy. The Kougar 3 pleasantly surprised me, I was pleased with the easy inflation with zero wind, the short distance that I had to run even considering that I was flying the 18m wing. The climb seems smooth & fast without any exaggerated force on the engine, a nice easy turn, with the option of speed when you need it. I look forward to flying the Kougar 3 a lot more, and it looks like Ive found my new flying buddy. Thanks Niviuk."

"It is not a paraglider, it is a rocket! Never before had I flown with a glider as fast as the Kougar 3. It is possible to exceed 80 km/h without the need to use a mini wing. To that, we add a great precision in the handling and an incredible glide. All this with some of the simplest risers that exist. This glider will become my competition partner, but I intend to fly with it every day because it is so much fun!"
