The Niviuk ABAC Team has met over the weekend to celebrate the first meeting of the new season. There was a great atmosphere among the veteran pilots and also among the young blood who are full of ambition and very eager to start their 2012 season in Europe. In addition to the superb performances of the pilots the star of these two days was without doubt the new ICEPEAK 6.

The pilots received their new competition machines and experienced the magnificence of the Icepeak 6 and on the landing field the smile on their faces said it all:

The charismatic Frenchman Jean Marc Caron said: “Trop de la balle. J’adore cette voile !!”

Maxime Bellemin added: “The IP6 is very easy to understand. Its turn is exceptional while always being homogenous. When accelerated it doesn´t degraded and it maintains an excellent glide. In short an easy wing to fly, pleasant in the air and all with excellent performance. A winner!!.”

Hardened Swiss pilot Joel Debbons revealed: “When we realised the performance of our IP6 it was very hard to keep it as a secret. We were very impressed with what Niviuk had achieved with a wing of such small aspect ratio. The performance of the IP6 is outstanding, enhanced by the ease of use and an excellent passive security. I can honestly say it is the best wing I ever had in my hands”.

The two latest additions to the Niviuk ABAC team, Frenchmen Lucas Bernadin and Jeremie Lager confirmed what the other pilots have said.

Lucas said: “During the first few hours with the IP6 I felt the same ´feel´ I used to have with the ´old´ competition wings. The IP6 is stable, fast, with good restitution energy. It is a powerful wing. Sweet and light in the brakes, it can be easily piloted. For two lines it has a Soft but dynamic accelerator and accelerates fast while staying very solid at high speeds.”

Jeremie confirmed: “Ease, manoeuvrability and performance. Piloting the IP6 has the same ease as a school wing but with the performance of an Open class wing. It is clear that by the efficiency of the handling it is a Niviuk. I can’t wait to be in Mexico for the Super Final with this beauty, it is destined to be on the podiums”.

After the PWC Super Final in Mexico the Niviuk Icepeak 6 will be available to all pilots around the world so they too can enjoy new competition successes and experience new Cross Country flights. The power of the Icepeak 6 is here.

The mandatory rule of flying EN-D certified wings in 2012 world class competitions created a new challenge, the final answer to that challenge is: ICEPEAK 6!!!

The experienced pilot Philippe Lami has flown the Artik 5 a few times and gives us his first impressions:


"The Artik 5 behaves like a gem! The Catalan manufacturer has used every trick to improve performance and the full-on glide. Every detail shows a clear drive for excellence and I really think that it will be difficult to do better as far as the quality of its structure.


[…] Fast little flights, before a full test. The inflation is easy, and it comes up with no tendency to overfly. The load take up is immediate and, when flying, you feel straightaway that the wing is very solid, monolithic and really taut. The controls are frank, a bit physical, with obvious authority, given the immediate reaction to travel.


[…] The Artik 5, used with hands up, then well accelerated, has the behavior of a competition wing: it has an obvious bite, whilst being very comfortable. It pulls forwards continuously, without asking for a lot of effort from the pilot...


During these first flights, I go everywhere, with ease, speed and comfort.  […] We’ll do a more comprehensive test later, of course. But the initial impression is already very positive, with this feeling of a very fast wing, identifiable and comfortable at the same time".

This weekend was held in Thailand the 10th edition of the WPC, the most important paramotor competition of the FAI. The best pilots around the world met at Lopburi (Thailand) for an amazing competition which ended with three Niviuk pilots in the top 5 of the overall ranking:

3rd - David Wainwright. The Australian Niviuk pilot did a magnificent competition with his Dobermann 2 and ended up taking home the bronze medal with a total score of 311.

4th - Nat Thanaphuthiphong. The local pilot flew with a Dobermann 2 and finished in fourth place with a total score of 308.

5th - Ramón Morillas. The iconic Spanish Niviuk’s pilot completed the Top 5 of the competition with a score of 307.

Former Australian paragliding national team member and twice Icarus Trophy winner, David Wainwright said "It was a tough week of competition with some challenging conditions and amazing level of pilot skill. I am very happy to be flying my Dobermann 2 and Nirvana Instinct. It is a great package which gives me confidence to push hard and to feel safe doing so. I have flown many years of high level paragliding cross country competitions but not so many PPG comps. This is my second year competing in classic style events and it is my 3rd comp. I look forward to flying more slalom events as I feel I have a big opportunity to improve in this area of the sport".

Congratulations to all the pilots!
