Description

A docile, intuitive and safe wing, but with a performance superior to the rest of its class. A real progression glider. Ideal to increase your flying experience and push your boundaries. Now you know how to soar. Go fly.

With a more solid architecture, the Hook 5 facilitates a smooth and progressive take off to provide total safety right from the start. Once in the air, its redesigned aerodynamic profile provides stability and comfort, reducing inertia and collapses to the minimum. This is thanks to the latest advances in the Radial Sliced Diagonal, 3DL and 3DP technologies which mean perfect tensioning to achieve a more efficient wing without deformations.

The Hook 5 features a leading edge designed to ensure efficient and stable glide, with the ability to perfectly absorb turbulence. The improved RAM Air Intake optimises the internal pressure of the wing for a more consistent profile across the entire speed-range and giving the pilot complete control and confidence.

The trailing edge has been reinforced with integrated small ribs that make this part flatter in order to spread the pressure out evenly. This means better glide, speed and performance in thermals. In addition, the glider knows how to take advantage of turbulence, converting it to lift progressively, making piloting easier.

Controlling the wing is simple and intuitive. Turns are easy to instigate and precise which takes the accessibility of the glider to the maximum, encouraging the pilot to explore more. Longer brake travel means it is possible to fly at slower speeds with complete control and a landing that is easy and safe.

The durability of the wing is increased by the use of Nitinol rods, which we use in all our wings. These super elastic reinforced rods ensure shape memory. As a result, the rods retain their optimum shape even after an ultra-compact or incorrect folding, so that the wing is not deformed.

In conclusion, the Hook 5 is an ideal wing to escape the usual flying routine and expand your horizons. A safe, stable and easy to use wing that will give you above-average performance. A wing to let you progress at every level.

Suitable for everyone

Easy and intuitive handling to get out of the routine and encourage you to experience new modes of flight. Its simple inflation will lead to a flight with excellent stability and totally intuitive control.

Feel safe in new challenges

Safety is the priority for all our wings. The modern and innovative design of the Hook 5 has resulted in a wing of maximum reliability, greater stability in flight and rapid recovery during incidents.

Be your best

The time has come to go further. Improve flight after flight with the best technologies at your disposal, progressing your piloting with a wing designed to offer the best performance in its class. Are you ready?

Radial Sliced Diagonal

RSD (Radial Sliced Diagonal) technology is a reinvention of the wing’s internal structure. This new design is based on individual diagonal panels arranged in radial form, which increase the efficiency of the internal structure considerably.

3D Leading Edge

Adding an extra seam to the leading edge on the span axis of the glider helps to shape a compact 3D profile and have better connections to the new 3DP front panel’s layout.

3D Pattern Cut Optimization

The latest glider generation requires a new pattern design and an optimized fabric cutting process based on a 3D technology.

Drag Reduction Structure

With the Drag reduction Structure technology, the trailing edge has been reinforced with small ribs that that makes this part of the glider flatter in order to spread the pressure out evenly. It means better air-flow and less drag on this important part of the glider.

RAM Air Intake

Evolution and constant improving in all our products is the essence of the DNA of Niviuk’s R&D team. Thanks to the new technologies created over recent years, we have conceived new and more evolved and higher performing gliders. In this context the RAM Air Intake technology should be pointed out.

Titanium Technology-

Constantly innovating, we always are on the hunt, looking for the latest and best materials to helps us design optimal products. For this reason, and after an extensive evaluation of its benefits and qualities, we decided to be the firsts manufacturer to use Nitinol in our glider line.
