TNT (Titanium technology)
Constantly innovating, we 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, we decided to be the firsts manufacturer to use Nitinol in our glider line.

Benefits
Nitinol is an alloy of 50% nickel and 50% titanium. This technology in our rods offers three major advantages of optimizing the performance of a paraglider, compared to those made out of Nylon:

- The addition of Nitinol rods in the profile, has the immediate result of substantially reducing the overall weight of the wing by about 13%.
- Nitinol has two very specific properties: shape memory and super elasticity. The flexible rods always regain their functional optimal shape, even after tight bending, no wrinkles or residual mechanical alterations affect their integrity.
- As a result, the wing's leading edge is then preformed on the ground and allows a uniform progressive inflation phase to take place, which considerably facilitates the takeoff. The wing surface is perfectly taut, wrinkle free and without parasitic cloth movements, the glide is thus optimized in all flight phases.

In addition, the rods are outfitted with plastic protectors at their ends to prevent fabric damage.

The Nitinol application has already become reality in some of our gliders such as Hook 4, the lkuma, the Peak 4, the Icepeak 8, the Skin or our light gliders (Skin P and Artik P).
