IKS Connect (Interlock System) 1000 & 3000
The IKS (Interlock System) is an ultra-lightweight, high strength connecting system that aims to complement the light product range and replace the current systems based on the use of the maillons and/or carabiners. This new system is based on a secure connection using a simple Dyneema loop provided with a fixing and locking system, ensuring the complete efficiency and safety of the connection, and allowing the equipment to be ready at all times, either with or without load.

Niviuk has developed two types - the IKS1000 and the IKS3000, each one designed as a connection system for different parts of the wing.

The IKS1000 is designed and dimensioned as a connection system between the risers and the lines. It has a breaking load of 1055 kg, which greatly exceeds that of the classic 3mm (550 kg) maillon, but with a much less weight. This feature makes it a key element in the entire range of P-Series (lightweight) wings, which are delivered with this technology as standard.

The IKS3000 is designed to connect the risers and/or the parachute with the harness. Its breaking load of 2960kg makes it an ultralight alternative to the 7mm (3125 kg) maillon or an aluminium carabiner (2000 kg). The IKS3000 design and concept make it ideal for mountaineering, hike & fly and ultralight equipment.

In short, the IKS technology is an advance towards a greater lightness in wings and equipment, without losing effectiveness and providing a a high degree of safety and strength.
