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