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

Niviuk launches the first Niviuk tandem paramotor wing for all types of trikes and foot-launched dual PPGs. Its name is R-Bus and stands out, among other factors, for being able to load up to 500 kg.

Available in sizes 37 and 40, the R-Bus is a highly tough, stable and durable glider designed for short, quick and simple takeoffs, with comfortable and safe landings for both pilot and passenger.

The German-speaking Thermik Magazin has reviewed the Ikuma. After only a few test flights they say it is one of the most instantly intuitive gliders they have flown. It is unusually stable, without feeling over-damped. It deals with turbulence beautifully. It delights in turns and will bring a smile to anyone who loves good handling. 

Commenting specifically on the flight characteristics, they say 'it can be difficult to centre in a weak thermal - not so with the Ikuma. The first 360ºs are easy. Hardly any pilot input is necessary to keep the high-end EN B in the tight thermal’. In bullet thermals the Ikuma is unusually stable. The glider copes excellently with turbulence, without ever feeling over-damped. 

The long brake-travel means pilots can fly for hours without getting tired and there is little danger of an unintended stall. 

Its glide performance is extremely efficient. On glide, the Ikuma feels solid and the pilot can fly pulley to pulley for hours – the wing gives this confidence and the effort required is minimal. The C-steering is a bonus – it is simple and efficient. Despite its outstanding agility, it is very stable in roll’. And they add: ‘The Ikuma is a complete success, suitable for various pilot requirements and uses. You should try it!

Their conclusion: ‘The fun factor is the outstanding characteristic of the Ikuma. Handling and agility are so convincing that the Ikuma is suitable for a very wide range of pilots. It has the feeling of a true all-rounder. Whether the pilot prefers soaring, where quick turns are required or when flying cross-country, the strengths of this wing shine through. With the high-end EN B Ikuma, Niviuk has very successfully bridged the gap between the mid-level EN B Hook and EN C wings’.
