More about Icepeak 8
Passion for competing means pushing oneself and gear to the limits. The new Icepeak 8 has evolved to perform more and demand less. It is a faster, more dynamic and more competitive glider. In one word: it is an overall better product.
Over a decade, Niviuk has been responding to an ever increasing number of requests. Impossible is what we want to conquer and overall cover the needs of the top competition pilots. This season the competition rules have changed, hence the expectations are higher than ever before.
Changing the competition rules
The Icepeak 8 is the answer: a top competition glider designed and made for the most demanding pilots. The result is a wing comprised of more than two thousand parts to create a unique composition.
Part of its secret is having used materials never seen before in the paragliding scene. This technical revolution underlines building the internal structure of the glider with Nitinol, a material resistant to deformations, hot temperatures and breaks.
The Niviuk personal touch
The Icepeak 8 offers maximum performance under the Niviuk safety and comfort touch. Our goal was to providing an extraordinary piloting sensation while competing around the world.
The Icepeak 8 will let you prove yourself in the near future. It is glider made to win and in accordance with the new CIVL Competition Class certification requirements. The challenge is now taking place in the skies!
The fabric, lines, risers and wing size can all be changed to customise and adapt the model to suit your needs and preferences. Contact us and we will personally explore all the possibilities.

L'Icepeak 8 is a high performance wing finding itself soaring among the best gliders on the market today; it translates the air mass very well and is a true pleasure to fly. The workmanship is just remarkable. The use of "Nitinol" in the design was a stroke of genius, helping to stiffen the profile, lighten the wing and hence improving surface tension resulting in more power overall. The Icepeak 8 is a true success!
The wing is awesome and the workmanship perfect. Its 7.6 aspect ratio gives it an outstanding look! Regarding piloting, I immediately felt at home under it. The wing catches thermals very well and pulls itself forward toward the ascending lift. It is a pleasure to be able to actually feel the thermals. Glide-wise, it does a superb job and the high performing level is definitely felt! The acceleration is smooth and comes rather quickly. It is a bit early to debate about the maximum acceleration but… I am certain the topic will come back to light sooner than later. The risers have been completely overhauled and modified. Piloting with the "B" is truly efficient. I can not wait to get back in the air with it!
