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

“I started flying when I was 10 years old, and then, never stopped dreaming about new challenges and adventures.

As the result of my sport career, I have been able to visit incredible places. Last summer, for example, I had the opportunity to visit Dubai and fly next to the famous “Palm tree” and the camels in the desert. I also remember my stays in Brazil, or in Santo flying along the beach, and at other locations in Araçatuba crossing the inland.

Following the steps of my team colleague and teacher Ramón Morillas is on my wish-list. I would love joining him in any of his expeditions, for instance, Pakistan and fly over the highest mountains on the planet.

However, my main dream, and what drives me to work harder day after day, is the thought of some day becoming World Champion. I am training tenaciously to improve my techniques and steadily come closer to the podium.

I will keep on trusting PAP and Niviuk for my gear to achieve my goals.”

As it is for Nico, any of us has dreams to reach. Do not let anything stop you. You are only limited by your emotions. Tell us your about your dreams!

Wally Arcidiacono won the Australia Championship Sport Category last month under the Artik 4. He told us that, having flown the Artik 2 in the past, he could not resist owning the Artik 3 when it was released nor the Artik 4 a few months ago. History repeats itself!

It seems that his debut under the Artik4 started on the right foot. Let’s read about Wally’s impressions:

“The Artik 4 is the most beautiful sports-class wing to fly ever. It has the classic Niviuk “easy roll' behavior which enables pilots to turn very tightly in the narrowest of thermals whilst still maintaining a very low sink rate. The feedback the pilot receives from the glider is clear and simple to understand. Coring a thermal becomes an easy and enjoyable part of the flight. The wing has a glide matching commonly found numbers in the EN D class while benefiting from a very competitive top speed. When on the accelerator/speed-bar, the glider is on a rail, solid  overhead without an angle of attack detarioration at maximum speed. Whether pilots are looking for an all-around XC or competitive Sports Class wing; the Artik 4 delivers. On top of all those great characteristics, the wing stands very comfortably in the middle of the EN C range. No tricks here! Just a well designed Niviuk product who created the most beautiful aircraft I have ever flown. What a treat to fly it!”. 

Thank you Wally and congratulations on your title! We wish you many victories, exhilarating adventures and flights under your new Artik 4!
