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

October 31st 2014, Roberta Perinetti had a flight lasting over five hours while covering a 122 km distance under the Artik 4. She gave us her opinion about the glider:

“The Artik 4 is a fun to handle, dynamic and performing glider; beautiful, resilient in strong air, excellent in thermals or when pushing the speed bar to the maximum"

When designing the Artik 4 we thought of an easy going wing enabling us to glide high and cover long distances. A wing to fulfill our needs year around and help us discover extraordinary new piloting sensations; a Grand Touring glider at its best.

If you are as Roberta is, an Artik 4 pilot, please tell us more about you! Share your stories in our social media channels #Artik4pilots

11.11.14  New Icepeak 8

The new Icepeak 8 has evolved to perform more and demand less. It is a faster, more dynamic and more competitive glider. In one word: it is an overall better product.

Over a decade, Niviuk has been responding to an ever increasing number of requests. Impossible is what we want to conquer and overall cover the needs of the top competition pilots. This season the competition rules have changed, hence the expectations are higher than ever before.

Changing the competition rules

The Icepeak 8 is the answer: a top competition glider designed and made for the most demanding pilots. The result is a wing comprised of more than two thousand parts to create a unique composition.

Part of its secret is having used materials never seen before in the paragliding scene. This technical revolution underlines building the internal structure of the glider with Nitinol, a material resistant to deformations, hot temperatures and breaks.

The Niviuk personal touch

The Icepeak 8 offers maximum performance under the Niviuk safety and comfort touch. Our goal was to providing an extraordinary piloting sensation while competing around the world.

The Icepeak 8 will let you prove yourself in the near future. It is glider made to win and in accordance with the new CIVL Competition Class certification requirements. The challenge is now taking place in the skies!

Available in three sizes (22, 24 and 26) and two colours (Ananas and Cherimoya). Discover more here or at your local dealer
