Description

 The answer

A top competition glider designed and made for the most demanding pilots.

 The use of materials never seen before

Building the internal structure of the glider with Nitinol, a material resistant to deformations, hot temperatures and breaks.

 The Niviuk personal touch

Our goal was to providing an extraordinary piloting sensation while competing around the world.

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!

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.

Structured Leading Edge

The SLE provides more rigidity and stability along the span of leading edge but also allows full flexibility along the both the vertical and horizontal axis of each open cell. The SLE ensures ease of movement on the ground and high security in the air during turbulence and whilst flying at speed.

Structured Trailing Edge

The STE optimises the profile without deforming it. We can thus obtain less resistance and better performance.

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.
