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

Ready to cross the driest desert on earth, the Atacama in Chile, under the Peak 3 X-Alps? François Ragolski and Martin Schricke are!

This November they will embark on an epic adventure: the Chilean Paragliding line! They will hike and fly across 1000km of remote desert in the fastest possible time. Starting in Copiapo, following the best line in order to reach Arica the extreme North of Chile.

They have already flown the last 500km in the past and they plan to do it again in less than 48h. The first 500km will be the real adventure. The idea is to make the trip in less than ten days, so the dream to do it even faster is part of the challenge. They will keep permanent a connection with the world by tracking on internet. Do not miss the event!

Do you want to know more about the team?

Martin Schricke - Vice French champion in aerobatics synchro with François, Martin is a paragliding pioneer in northern Chile. He’s also a “multi disciplined” extreme sports athlete. Whether on land, in water or in the sky.

François Ragolski - Triple world-cup winner and current N°1 in aerobatics world ranking champion. François, he’s also well known in Chile for holding the national record with a 320km flight between Antofagasta and Iquique, north of the country.

Patty (Patricia Rojo) and Lorraine Humeau - The two women in the adventure, take care of ground support and safety. Water and food are rare commodities in the desert. Their commitment to the challenge will make the impossible a reality.

Why have they chosen the Peak 3 X-Alps?

The light version of the Peak 3 glider was specifically designed for those devoted to the purest form of Cross Country. Mainly due to the combination of performance and lightness, the Peak 3 X-Alps is the perfect teammate to cover the longest routes as well as the to conquer the biggest challenges. The glider is lightweight for the hiking phases and powerful when in the air.
