Takoo 5: Time to get closer

Lighter than ever

Lighter, precise and more direct handling for a more pleasant flight. Enjoy a level of performance that will allow you get the best from your flights.

Endless flights

The renovation of the internal structure using the RSD technology allows to optimize the orientation of the diagonals. Together with the optimal use of materials in different sections of the glider, the durability and strength of the wing are increased. Maximum safety and accessibility to unleash your adventures.

On a cloud

Its new aerofoil guarantees stability and comfort for both, pilot and passenger. This means less movement for the passenger to provide an experience where fun is the key.



Commercial tandem flights

A tandem wing designed to satisfy the most exacting professional dual pilots. Its durability and performance make this a glider that you will not want to part with.

Recreational flights

Experience a tandem wing as you never imagined it and let yourself be carried away by its supreme comfort and stability. Enjoy each flight with a tandem that adapts perfectly to your needs and those of your passenger. 

Comparative chart of the Takoo 5 vs Takoo 4



Direct and smooth handling

Optimised light and responsive brake system for improved turning. Balance between performance and accessibility to meet the requirements of both professionals and passionate recreational pilots.

Comfort above all else

A more robust internal structure with an improved load distribution at the attachment points. A high degree of pitch stability; increasing passenger comfort by decreasing the transmission of movements from the wing to the passenger.

Increased operational life

  • Change of cloth so that the colour will stand the test of time.
  • Optimisation of the cloths used to achieve durability and strength without compromising the lightness of the wing.
  • A new modern design based on the look of the Icepeak X-One.

Unbeatable take off and landing

  • Launch: a more progressive inflation and it takes the load immediately.
  • Landing: its excellent speed retention allows smooth and safe landings.


Niviuk Technologies 

New internal structure based on the Radial Sliced Diagonal technology (RSD)

The internal structure has been redesigned by altering the orientation of the diagonal ribs and tension bands to achieve a more optimal distribution of forces. In this way, durability is improved and deformations are reduced.

New profile

Thanks to the know-how gained during the manufacturing process of the X-One, this new model features a profile with the same stability, which translates into less turbulence in flight and helps maintain a more constant speed range. Passenger and pilot will benefit from greater comfort in flight.

ELS Technology

The pilot can adjust the effectiveness of Big Ears thanks to the Ear Lock System technology for a fast and comfortable descent.

Optimisation of the trailing edge

With the application of the Drag Reduction Structure (DRS), the airflow is directed more progressively along the trailing edge. This reduces the aerodynamic drag and the brake pressure required.

Optimisation of the reinforcements and attachment points

Due to the redesign of the internal structure, it has been possible to reduce the tension on the attachment points.

More durable line set

The Takoo 5 has 160 lines; a reduction of 9% in comparison to its predecessor. In order to increase their durability all lines are sheathed.

Innovations in the materials

A combination of different cloths improves durability and strength, without compromising on lightness. On the upper surface, Dokdo 40 g/m2 has been used to provide additional robustness in the front part of the leading edge and Dokdo 36 g/m2 has been used on the remaining part. The undersurface has been designed with the semi-lightweight Dokdo 32 g/m2 cloth that offers a good balance between weight and durability.

Take off tabs

Possibility to fix the wing to the ground with metal tabs that are attached to the canopy. Particularly useful on steep take-offs, snowy terrain or slippery surfaces.
