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

Although the weather was unkind to the famous Australian Canungra Cup, there were three valid tasks. The final task was a 100km to Maryvale. Overall winner was Wally Arcidiacono, flying an Icepeak 8.

Kirsten Seeto (Peak 3) topped the women's podium with Kate Baker (Artik 4) taking the silver medal.

James Thompson (Icepeak 8) was awarded third place in the Master's class.

Congratulations to all!

The French magazine Parapente Mag is the first to test the new Koyot 3 (EN A) - the glider designed for new and future adventurers.

After a detailed analysis of the materials that make up the wing, the publication went on to analyse its behaviour. One of the points that surprised the test pilot was the ease and stability during inflation and take off: "In nil-wind the wing inflates and rises progressively without ever overshooting. Once overhead and although the pilot advanced slowly, the wing remained completely balanced. All new pilots have a tendency to over-brake during takeoff. With the Koyot 3, this is not a problem, because with its long brake travel it retains its good flying characteristics".

Another factor that the test highlights the high passive safety because of the wing’s huge resistance to turbulence: "the Koyot 3 has the tendency to absorb unruly air and provides the pilot with useful feedback".

Compared to the old Koyot 2, the magazine emphasises the lightness of the new model, which is more responsive both during takeoff and during the flight, as well as faster and it thermals more efficiently. "It retains the user-friendliness of the previous model but is improved in terms of performance and efficiency", says the magazine.

For this reason, Paragliding Mag says that "the Koyot 3 does not seem a school wing, but more a high-performance wing".
