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

31.07.15  Aaron LaPlante: ‘Two minutes in heaven are better than none’

We want to introduce the leading character of episode two in our four part video series about Artik 4 pilots: US. pilot Aaron LaPlante living in Santa Barbara, started flying XC in company of his wife, when she suggested that he should perhaps travel to the Alps and share a flight experience.

When we knew Aaron a while ago, he was proudly mastering his Artik 3 and told us then: “I have always trusted it. We flew many hours together in a lot of different places. It has always been a wonderful glider. My Artik 3 was part of my family”.

Today and a half year later, we met Aaron again to fly in his company and his new Artik 4 on the coastline, and inland around Santa Barbara: “With this glider everything has become easier. It has a superior performance level, a better behavior in thermals, smoother takeoff abilities and is more stable overall”.

Each day after work, he takes his bike or car to go out flying. Off the record, Aaron told us: “I love the challenge of going out flying and landing next to my car, quickly  pack my wing and arrive home just before my little kids wake up after their daily afternoon nap. The Artik 4 is a true glider for a householder. My son also loves flying with us”.
