As every end of September, from the 22th to the 25, the free flying community has its annual gathering in the alpine village of Saint Hilaire du Touvet, to celebrate the Coupe Icare.

Niviuk, since its creation, once again is proud to invite you to share with us this event. We will be at our usual stand (B30/C21). In this edition 2011 Niviuk has numerous new products to show you:

The awaited Artik 3 is finally at production in our factory. With an innovative profile developed using the very latest software and a new line plan using low resistance 3-line technology brings performance and passive safety never before seen on an EN C glider.

Our two new wings exclusively designed for the powered flight will also be at Saint Hilaire. The Link, not only offers confidence and comfort it also brings to you ease of flight, from your very first powered flight to onward progression the LINK will adapt with your experience. The Kougar, on the other hand, is the paramotor wing for experienced pilots looking for stability, maneuverability and speed provided by the own Niviuk System Reflex Profile.

We will also present you the two new wings designed exclusively for the Acro pilots. The F-Gravity 2, a dedicated wing for the freestyle discipline, and the N-Gravity 2 for the experimented acro pilots. Dynamic, speedy and light, wings to fulfill the own imagination in the air.

The research and development team at Niviuk has been working hard also on the harnesses front. The Drifter, the most innovative and aerodynamic cross country and competition harness of the moment keeps being admired by pilots around the globe. They comment on the increase of performance that the Drifter produces on the wing and on their top comfort when flying.

The original Hamak returns with several improvements. We have evolved the all-round Niviuk harness, updating it with the most technological advanced materials, more resistant and being  900 grs lighter and with new colors.

In addition to the Drifter and the Hamak 2, we will introduce the Roamer and the Transat. The Roamer is the multipurpose harness from Niviuk. It is a reversible harness ideally suited to speed riding, speed flying or mountain flying. The Transat has been designed for the tandem professionals and enthusiastic. It has been conceived for pilot comfort, mobility and security during the take-off and landing stages.

We look forward to your visit

We have almost just landed at the Niviuk Headquarters after four great days of flying related adventures at the Coupe Icare, and the first we can do is express our gratitude to all those who joined us for our 10th anniversary celebration in Saint Hilaire.

In this year's event edition, we found time to cover it all, from new season products, flights, shows, to pilots and visiting friends, films….

In the takeoff area we saw the Abac Team, alongside other Niviuk pilots as Ramón Morillas and Klaudia Bulgakow, flying the first Artik 4 gliders, the Icepeak 8 pre serial or our simple surface wing. We also enjoyed the best Paramotoring demonstrations with our team pilots showing the Dobermann's power, the Kougar 2 and the Link.

Our booth was once again the meeting ground and point of focus for pilots, friends and visitors alike. Many  educated consumers and followers were made aware of our new product range, and to those interested, we extended the courtesy of letting them tryout a few of our latest glider designs to discover new sensations for themselves.

Moreover, we were represented in the films festival by Gavin McClurg with “500 miles to Nowhere”; an awesome movie about one of his latest adventures. We hope to hear from you soon Gavin!

The peak of the celebration was on Saturday evening, when the Niviuk founders met to celebrate the 10th years of the brand while being surrounded by a lot of friends and followers. Thank you so much for it all as we hope having the privileged of being in your company once more during the Coupe Icare 2015! See you next year!

Large Niviuk pilots participation in the 2014 France Championship, held in Saint Jean de Montclar two weeks ago. The pilots let us enjoy five thrilling tasks, with the last one covering a 105 km distance, in really good weather conditions.

The winners of the competition were Seiko Fukuoka and Charles Cazaus. Congratulations to both of them and well done to all participants! It was a pleasure to be there for another year with such a big Niviuk pilot representation!
