Congratulations to Seiko Fukuoka who has just become the woman flying the longest distance in paragliding history: 336 Km flown in a straight line in Brazil on her Icepeak 6.

This record flight took place on the 20th of November. Seiko took off from Quixadá at 10 in the morning and stayed airborne for longer than 10 hours setting the new World record (FAI record file number 16698).

Seiko in this year’s competition has become the France Champion and Talloires PWC Champion. Now in XC she has made nothing less than the longest ever women paragliding flight. Impressive!

With this wonderful flight Seiko ranks first in the World XC contest, followed by Nicole Fedele, who few days ago nearly broke the World record, both pilots under an Icepeak 6!

Who knows if one day the female pilots will be able to compare themselves in XC flights with men? We've seen in competition that women can beat men overall.

Cheers to all the feminine pilots that dream with big flights and thanks for counting on Niviuk for those dreams!

Recently the French Paramoteur+ magazine tested the R-Bus and reported the Niviuk wing to be a complete success, ideal for those looking for a safe, docile, powerful tandem that can carry up to 500kg:


"After producing many paramotor wings for solo pilots, Niviuk completely fulfills the expectations of tandem pilots, especially those who fly with a lot of weight."


The magazine highlights three of the R-Bus' main  strengths: Inflation behaviour that is easy, fast and it takes its load quickly; its performance in the air and its manoeuvrability when the when the brake and high speed tip are used simultaneously. The wing allows high speed at reasonable consumption. Also noteworthy is the fact that the leading edge is reinforced by Nitinol rods, the titanium and nickel alloy used by Niviuk in most of their wings. It is an ultralight material that best maintains the leading edge to facilitate load-bearing and performance.


The article explains at length that the R-Bus is a paramotor wing designed for high loads, but at the same time it is easy and very efficient. The importance of small details are especially evident during take off and once in the air. In flight, the stability is especially reassuring and, thanks to the stabilos, it is so manageable that you forget that you are flying a tandem.

US National Champion and Niviuk pilot Bianca Heinrich has just crossed the Alps from Chamonix in France to Slovenia. After 11 days of hiking, flying and the odd bus and train, she flew into their intended goal at Tolmin. She was accompanied on the adventure by Mexican X-Pyr competitor Eduardo Garza. Carrying everything they needed for the vol-biv adventure on their backs, their packs weighed approximately 20kg each. Bianca took her Peak 4 on this adventure.

Aiming to cover 50km per day, their route took them through France, Switzerland, Italy and Slovenia. Time constraints and bad weather meant that they had to use some transport, but they say that "while we covered a lot of our distance by train & bus to keep within our allotted time, every single flight we had was memorable in ways that can barely be described".
