Kuik II, a complete product line on its own!

 

The Kuik II is a modular harness that allows a great deal of freedom of configuration, from mountain harness to Kocon harness.

The Kuik II concept is thus almost a complete harness product line by itself.

The chassis itself benefits from the latest advances made by the Kortel Design R&D team in terms of ergonomics and the shaping of fabrics and foams.
The result is amazing:

Pilot's weight distribution over the largest surface, even in a thermaling position (tilter on its side) for optimum comfort.

Natural leg position, neither too spread-out nor too tight.

Easy to adjust.

Controlled leg autonomy.

 

This module makes your Kuik II suitable for cross-country flying.
the rescue should be mounted in the front position (shoulder attachment possible)

The backpack

The backpack is provided with a specific compression bag  to store the glider in the correct shape.

The combination of this compression bag and the backpack position of this module makes the carrying experience very good, akin to that of a real mountain backpack.

In the backpack position, a top flap is located in the upper part, to fit your accessories, wallets and other small items you wish to bring .

The airbag

In the airbag position, you have a real back protection covering the entire surface of the harness with a maximum thickness.
the bag's cap becomes an internal storage pocket, which will allow you to store all your gear without interfering with the proper functioning of the airbag, and in particular the inflation of the upper pocket.

Type of Practice

 

This module adds a back pocket and a simple 17cm foam bag (LTF certified) to your Kuik II.
Ideal for inflating or wagga sessions close to the ground, the school slope.
This is the closest module to the original Kuik in terms of functionality.

Type of Practice

 

This module transforms your Kuik II into the equivalent of a Karma II, but without the seatplate.

You find the same Krashbox system, a permanent airbag, pre-inflated by a foam structure for an efficiency of the back protection as soon as the bag is taken out.
The airbag remains large (and therefore effective) all the way up the back.
The emergency pocket under the buttocks.
Lateral protection of the materials at the passage of the gas pedal cord.
Footrest equipped with the release system when the rescue is extracted.

Type of Practice

The Kuik II becomes a might cross-country  and Bivouac flight tool. This module is actually composed of two parts:

.

  • A high profile trim part, with a storage pocket, a combined foam/airbag back protector covering the entire surface of the backrest.
  • a Kocon part, which can be fitted in two minutes, with a rescue pocket in the frontal position, to complete the aerodynamic form of the harness, to improve comfort and its  piloting precision.

The Kocon module has two storage pockets. One in the back, and another under the rider's thighs, in front of the back protection.
As a result, the storage volume is large and, above all, well balanced. The flying position is not affected by too much cargo in the back.
Even better, the compartment in which the foam bag is located is accessible via a zipper, and in crash tests we replaced it with different sleeping bag models: all tests were well within the limits of the LTf approval!
So the Kuik II is a very good bivouac tool.

The life span of your harness depends on the frequency and type of use. Mechanical stress and friction gradually degrade the properties. UV rays and humidity can also cause accelerated aging.

Normal duration of use: 10 years.
Warning: This period of use is indicative. A fifth wheel can be destroyed at its first use. A check every 2 years will determine if the product should be disposed of sooner. Between uses, proper storage is essential.

The time of use should never exceed 10 years.
