Kuik II, a full range on its own!

 

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

The Kuik II concept is thus almost a complete harness range on its own.

The main core itself benefits from the latest advances made by the team Kortel Design R&D in terms of ergonomics and formatting of fabrics and foams.
The result is surprising :

Distribution of the pilot's mass on a maximum surface, even in a thermal position (inclined on the side) for optimum comfort.

Natural Position of the legs, which does not find itself exaggeratedly discarded.

Easy to adjust.

Independence of the legs contained.

 

This module makes your Kuik II suitable for hiking.
The rescue must be mounted in the ventral position (attach to the shoulders possible)

The bag

The bag is provided with a specific compression bag that allows to store the glider to the right shape.

The combination of this compression bag and the bag position of the module makes the whole portage very good, close to a real mountain bag.

In the bag position, a top flap finds its place on the upper part, to accommodate your accessories, wallets and other small things that you will take with you.

The airbag

In airbag position, here you are with a true dorsal protection covering the entire surface of the harness with a maximum thickness.
The top flap then becomes an internal storage pocket, which will allow you to store all your gears without interfering with the proper operation of the airbag, and in particular the inflation of the upper pocket.

Type of Practice

 

This module adds a back pocket and a simple foam type protection from 17cm (certified LTF) to your Kuik II.
Ideal for inflating or waggas sessions near the ground, the school slope.
This is the module that is closest 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 will find the same Krashbox system, a permanent airbag, pre-inflated by a foam structure for the effectiveness of the dorsal protection right out of the bag.
The airbag remains large (and therefore efficient) up to the top of the back.
The spare pocket under the bottom.
Lateral Protection of the fabrics at the passage of the speed-bar rope.
Footrest equipped with the release system during the extraction of the rescue.

 

Type of Practice

The Kuik II becomes a cross-country weapon and Bivouac flight. This module is actually made up 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 comes to be fixed in two minutes, with a rescue pocket in the ventral position, to complete the aerodynamic form of the harness, to improve its comfort and its precision of piloting

The Kocon module has two storage pockets. One in the back, and another under the pilot's thighs, at the front of the dorsal protection.
So the volume of storage is important, and above all, balanced. The flight position is not affected by a too large load in the back.
Even stronger, the compartment in which the foam is located is accessible by a zipper, and during the crash test, we replaced it with different models of sleeping bags: all the tests have largely remained within the limits of LTF Approval!
The Kuik II thus equipped becomes a very good bivouac flight tool.
