Kangaroo 3 from SOL Paragliders

Kangaroo 3 from SOL Paragliders

Kangaroo 3 is a tandem glider for qualified and experienced pilots. Performance and handling are the two features that distinguish Kangaroo 3 from other tandem gliders. The balance and quality of the turns (efficiency and precision) and the performance of Kangaroo 3 are same as that of a high level glider. Its manoeuvrability allows Kangaroo 3 to climb the weakest thermals

SOL Kangaroo3 (LTF/EN C)

The Kangaroo 3 is the result of the difficult job to top the performance of its predecessor Kangaroo 2 which innovated the canopy conception for tandem flights. The Kangaroo 2 is a symbol for world records, a tandem wing that outperforms in output and resources among the offered ones on the market. For the successor any of the well known trademarks couldn’t be ignored: easy take off, climb performance in even smallest thermals, smooth handling and easy landing characteristics. After intensive tests, many prototypes and many flying hours, the Kangaroo 3 project impress with its innovative construction with 61 cells – 14 of them closed – hybrid fabrics, 6.26 real A/R and 4.38 projected A/R.

SOL Kangaroo3 (LTF/EN C)

Kangaroo 3 uses a new profile (completely developed by computer simulated models). Having tested different profiles, SOL opted for the optimum balance between performance and stability. The construction is extremely detailed with 61 cells, of which 14 are closed. The diagonal bands – A, B, C and D – result in a clean and precise glider. The layout of Kangaroo 3 is entirely new, with a higher aspect ratio, which results in a precise handling and more performance. The cell width gets smaller as you go from the centre to the wing tip. The space between each block of cells remains the same thanks to a vector strap sewn between each profile/line attachment. The three-level suspension lines have been optimised to reduce drag and make it easier to untangle. All materials used were carefully chosen to guarantee a longer durability and a high level of safety. All SOL gliders are made by SOL’s own DHV certified factory.
• Riser for big ears
• 5 cm Trimmers certified by DHV
• Diagonal bands to reduce the number of lines and weight
• Profile reinforcement in Carbon/Mylar
• Modern technique applied on cutting
• Clean layout

Kangaroo 3‘s higher aspect ratio allows a more precise piloting both to active pilots who like to use the body, as well as to passive pilots who prefer to act using the brakes. This characteristic allows a great performance in weak and strong thermals, while stability is maintained.

• Long and tolerating brake length
• Excellent and precise handling
• High internal pressure
• Stability in full speed
• Light reactions in extreme conditions
• Good passive safety
• Excellent take off characteristics, even in nil wind
• Comfortable piloting
• Good behaviour in thermals
