The best possible start
An accessible wing with instinctive and intuitive handling that will assist you as you train as a pilot, gain experience and evolve in terms of your confidence and knowledge.
The promise of comfort
Its relaxed behaviour guarantees great stability during all phases of flight and with the pilot in absolute control, they can progress steadily in their initial learning phase.
Technology in the service of safety
Niviuk has taken advantage of all our latest developments and technologies to create a wing with the highest possible passive safety. Focus on your progression and let Koyot 4 do the work for you.
A new awakening
The latest generation of the Koyot gives you the best start in this new and exciting learning phase. A more accessible and efficient wing thanks to intuitive, responsive handling which facilitates total control for the pilot in whichever situation they may find themselves. The wing is designed to give the pilot confidence as they progress, and to reach all their goals quickly and safely.
The passive safety is the result of the wing’s new and optimised design, focused above all on ensuring stability in all phases of flight. This is a glider that is easier to fly and has more progressive responses to inputs than its predecessor. Therefore after any manoeuvre, the glider will stabilise itself and will continue to fly correctly and normally.
The Koyot 4 is also more comfortable, especially in turbulent conditions where it offers great stability and minimises the chances of a collapse.
In terms of its construction, the Koyot 4 has a new profile and a revised arc of the canopy that ensure greater cohesion throughout the entire wing, which guarantees a simpler take off and, again, better resistance to possible collapses.
Using Nitinol (TNT) rods in the wing profile instead of conventional nylon rods increases its elasticity, gives it shape memory and helps the profile return to its original shape more easily. The Nitinol technology used in Niviuk wings helps the Koyot 4 to inflate in a more progressive and uniform way, making taking off simpler. This combination with durable materials increases the operational life of the wing and offers protection during intensive use and possible wear that is common in the learning phase.
Its leading-edge has a structured design (SLE technology), an extra seam on the span axis (3DL technology) and ideal tensioning without deformations based on the 3DP technology used in Niviuk competition gliders. All this means the Koyot 4 offers an extra performance bonus compared to other wings in its class and gives the pilot the possibility of progressing to their first cross-country flights.
The internal structure has also been redesigned and optimised. The ribs and diagonals are combined and the attachment points are reinforced for better load distribution. A more aerodynamic trailing edge results in less drag than its predecessor, a key aspect for better airflow. The application of RAM Air Intake (RAM) technology contributes to improving this flow and optimising internal pressure for the wing to better absorb any turbulence. With these improvements, the Koyot 4 has greatly benefited in terms of safety, stability and control.
The line plan has been simplified with a reduction of more than 30% in the total number of lines (from 214 to 148 in size 26) and 20% fewer line meters (from 291 to 236 in size 26). This improvement has been based on a new strategic distribution of the lines alongside a more technical construction based on the use of diagonal tape, with only two levels of lines on the entire surface, a fact that makes wing preparation and checking of the lines during the pre-launch phase much easier.
The increase in the number of cell openings (from 36 to 39) makes the wing stronger and more compact, resulting in a cleaner wing. In this way, the performance of the glider has been subtly increased and allows the pilot more enjoyment while always feeling in control.
The aspect ratio has been reduced compared to the previous generation from 4.95 to 4.75, also helping to improve the compactness and making it a more stable wing.
Another highlight of the Koyot 4 is that it has an efficient and stable speed system that together with the extended brake range will allow a more progressive control of the wing speed.
In short, the Koyot 4 gives you the confidence you need to improve as a pilot and allows you to master all the basics of flying. Its docile character guarantees smooth progression while you safely complete your first adventures.
3DL - 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.
RAM - RAM Air Intake
Evolution and constant improving in all Niviuk products is the essence of the DNA of Niviuk's R&D team. Thanks to the new technologies created over recent years, Niviuk have conceived new and more evolved and higher performing gliders. In this context, the RAM Air Intake technology should be pointed out.
SLE- 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.
TNT- Titanium technology
Constantly innovating, Niviuk 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, Niviuk decided to be the firsts manufacturer to use Nitinol in their glider line.
