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

05.03.15  Skin & Skin Plume
Skin & Skin Plume

Is it possible for a simple surface to have the same performance a normal glider does? Is it possible for it to be as easy to fly as an entry level school wing? Is it possible for a glider to give a new meaning to the definition of free flying joy?

If you are an adventurous hike&fly passionate mountaineer, you will find the Skin to be the perfect lightweight ultra compact companion to carry with you anywhere. Its effortless inflations with or without wind, take off abilities from just about any spot, followed by superior flight handling and soft precise landings make it a serious wing choice to consider by many pilots.

But the Skin is not only a descent wing; it will surprise you by its climbing abilities in thermals, gliding and speed (12 cm speed bar travel). Those assets make the Skin a very enjoyable, safe and very stable glider for all pilot levels in various flight conditions.

How is it possible for such a small wing without intrados to be so diverse?

The answer is primarily due to the incorporation of five closed cells on the intrados, reinforcing the overall surface structure and dispersing the air flow evenly.  These cells are also the primary cause for a really short and progressive take off, as well as for a great speed range and efficiency.

Its added benefits derive from using the SLE, DRS and the new Titanium technologies combines with classic materials and the revolutionary Nitinol used for the internal glider structure. 

Skin Plume

And for those more radical, we also introduce the Skin Plume (lightversion). Same revolutionary design and same incredible sensations, but built with 100% ultralight materials to extremely reduce the wing weight.

Both models are available in three sizes (16,18 and 20) and four colors: Kaki and Sapphire for the serial version and Sunlight and Atlantic for the light one. Click to see more.
