The Kougar 3 arrives ready to revolutionise the world of paramotoring. Its fast but maneuverable character makes it the ideal glider for your navigation and cross-country flights. The Kougar 3 is agile, extremely stable, with excellent performance. Let yourself be inspired by the confidence this wing gives you and set off in search of new adventures.
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.
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 really 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 the fuel consumption and increases the performance of the wing once airborne.
Once in flight, its maneuverability 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 our philosophy is to incorporate of all our 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 our new 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.
3D Leading Edge
3DL technology is an adjustment of the fabric at the leading edge of the wing to control the ballooning and the creases that are generated by the curvature in this area. The leading edge is then divided into sub-panels which are sewn into each of the cells at the front of the wing. As a result, the leading edge of the wing is more evenly tensioned, which benefits the wing in performance and durability.
3D Pattern Cut Optimization
This technology seeks to implement the best orientation of the cloth on each panel according to its location on the leading edge. If the cloth pattern is correctly aligned with the load axes, the cloth suffers less deformation flight after flight, so the leading edge keeps its shape better and maintains its durability over time.
Drag Reduction Structure
With the application of the DRS, the airflow at the trailing edge is directed more progressively along the adverse pressure gradient with the aim of reducing the aerodynamic drag produced in this area. This increases performance without compromising safety or control of the wing.
RAM Air Intake
The Ram Air Intake system is characterised by the arrangement of the air inlets, to ensure optimal maintenance of internal pressure across the the whole range of angles of attack.
Reflex System Profile
The RSP is a profile designed to fit the technical characteristics of paramotor wings. It is a profile with self-stabilizing characteristics that gives greater pitch stability and provides more safety for the pilot when the angle of attack is lower (accelerated flight).
Structured Leading Edge
The SLE is a rigid structure located at the leading edge of the wing that eliminates the need for old-fashioned mylar reinforcements in this area, thus reducing the weight and increasing the durability of the wing. The leading edge will also have better turbulence absorbing qualities.
Nitinol is a combination of 50% nickel and 50% titanium. This technology provides three outstanding benefits that increase the performance of the wing, compared to plastic rods.

“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 miniwing. 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!”
“I was a little uncertain as to how you could better the Kougar 2, as its 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.”
