Winter's arrival coincided with our last 10th anniversary article. During the last twelve months we recalled a few key moments in Niviuk’s story. It is now time to recapitulate them:
Early on this year, we went back in time; 2005 specifically, to remember the origins of the company's brand name and the story of its founders. Then our first glider, the Nk1, came to mind, quickly followed by each new model's first version (Hook, peak, Icepeak, Takoo, …)
There was also room for all the broken records made by Niviuk pilots during these past ten years; for example, the Infinity Fly World record set in 2006 under the first N-Gravity model.
We then dedicate a special issue to all those professionals and dealers who supported us from day one and without whom, Niviuk would not have flourished.
The Abac Team: explaining the story of our competition team, the pilots behind it, the Icepeak (their glider of choice) and what it means to us, was also on our wish list from the beginning.
And how could we forget the thousands of adventures, a few nuttier than others, experienced by our pilots such as Babu Sunuwar overflying the Everest under the Takoo 2, the incredible Jody MacDonald and Gavin’s McClurg pictures or Ramon Morilla’s expeditions to the most remote places on the planet.
When summer came, we focused our attention on the Paramotor world. We had released two new gliders, the Kougar 2 and the Doberman and so we found it interesting going back through memory lane to retrace our first Paramotoring steps, the creation of the Paramotor team and highlight the evident growth of the sport.
In September, we moved once again to the Coupe Icare to officially celebrate our 10th anniversary with all of you. We blew the candles while saying in person thank you everyone for being there for us all those years.
Before reaching the end of the year, and talking about the most important topics, we thought it would be a good idea to let you know more about our production process, how much care goes into quality controls to deliver products 100% up to your highest expectations.
The last chapter will be dedicated to you, the Niviuk pilots around the world, because you are the moving force pulling our company into the future. Thank you!
It is now time to conclude this letter with a few more words asking you once more to keep on sending us and share your untold adventures and stories ! #niviuk10that deserve to be told. So, please, keep sharing them! #niviuk10
