Roberta Perinetti and her Artik 4

A month after the 2017 global XContest started, Roberta Perinetti has taken an early lead in the women’s ranking. After spending a few weeks in Bir Billing, India, she has racked up an impressive 986.5 points already.

Flying her Artik 4, she completed six 100km+ flights in one week. The longest was 151.20 km (181.44 points), which required spending 6:46 hours in the air. Her other flights were 126.37km, 123.08km, 144.65km, 127.47km and 148.94km. She had a rest day on the 24th of October, but in the week between the 19th – 25th October, she was in the air for over 39 hours! An impressive week and excellent flying!

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.

Bianca Heinrich: Crossing the Alps. Bianca Heinrich: Crossing the Alps. Bianca Heinrich: Crossing the Alps.

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".
