Recently the French Paramoteur+ magazine tested the R-Bus and reported the Niviuk wing to be a complete success, ideal for those looking for a safe, docile, powerful tandem that can carry up to 500kg:


"After producing many paramotor wings for solo pilots, Niviuk completely fulfills the expectations of tandem pilots, especially those who fly with a lot of weight."


The magazine highlights three of the R-Bus' main  strengths: Inflation behaviour that is easy, fast and it takes its load quickly; its performance in the air and its manoeuvrability when the when the brake and high speed tip are used simultaneously. The wing allows high speed at reasonable consumption. Also noteworthy is the fact that the leading edge is reinforced by Nitinol rods, the titanium and nickel alloy used by Niviuk in most of their wings. It is an ultralight material that best maintains the leading edge to facilitate load-bearing and performance.


The article explains at length that the R-Bus is a paramotor wing designed for high loads, but at the same time it is easy and very efficient. The importance of small details are especially evident during take off and once in the air. In flight, the stability is especially reassuring and, thanks to the stabilos, it is so manageable that you forget that you are flying a tandem.

US National Champion and Niviuk pilot Bianca Heinrich has just crossed the Alps from Chamonix in France to Slovenia. After 11 days of hiking, flying and the odd bus and train, she flew into their intended goal at Tolmin. She was accompanied on the adventure by Mexican X-Pyr competitor Eduardo Garza. Carrying everything they needed for the vol-biv adventure on their backs, their packs weighed approximately 20kg each. Bianca took her Peak 4 on this adventure.

Aiming to cover 50km per day, their route took them through France, Switzerland, Italy and Slovenia. Time constraints and bad weather meant that they had to use some transport, but they say that "while we covered a lot of our distance by train & bus to keep within our allotted time, every single flight we had was memorable in ways that can barely be described".

Stefan Keller: Fly to feel again. Stefan Keller: Fly to feel again.

Stefan Keller is an adventurer and pilot in the Jura Massif in Switzerland. He began flying with 40 years and after a decade flying and teaching he suffered an accident that forced him to go in a wheelchair. After his recovery he wanted to rediscover the authentic sensation of flying and it was at that moment when Stefan realized that flying meant for him to feel again:

"It took me 11 months to get back in the air but when I did it was like coming home. I flew for an hour, alongside my friend Chrigel Maurer. Both the physical and mental challenge of flying was easy. I justcame back toit. In the harness I forget I am in a wheelchair".

"Launch is a gravity take-off. Gravity works, no one has to push. Gravity pulls the wheelchair down, and that gives the speed. Zero wind or even a light wind from behind is ok. Strong wind from the frontis difficult and dangerous".

"I fly an Ikuma from Niviuk. My favourite places to fly are the Isle of Wight, the Alps and Colombia. I have pain. And in Colombia, when I go in the Winter, I have not so strong pain. Also on the Isle of Weight. When I am happy the pain goes down".

"There are more wheelchair pilots in France, but I am the only wheelchair instructor in the whole world. I have a lot of wheelchair students now. I have students in Colombia, and in May I have students coming to Switzerland from Norway. I am specialist now in teaching wheelchair users to fly paragliders. After take-off, you don’t have a disability".
