All about the Ikuma ▼
Designed to cover a broad range of pilot needs in a new category we have named Back Country, a definition explaining a new flying style rather than defining it by a certification code. The Ikuma meets the criteria demanded by all pilots with various expectations, offering them performance and safety in this new glider.
Tenacity and persistence to always skilfully reach for the next big achievement was the catalyst for Niviuk to design the Ikuma. As with the most precious diamonds found deep in the Earth’s surface, our engineers, lead by Olivier Nef, brought the wing to life. Serene, precise and fun to fly, it is the perfect glider to those most passionate and ambitious pilots.
With a sporty character, the Ikuma was engineered to enjoy and maximize every flight, feeling natural instinctive states of mind with each new flown route. Stress free piloting becomes essential and will let you concentrate on the fun part of the flight only. Guide your wing without restraints to wherever your fancy leads you.
Allow yourself to discover new corners of the sky regardless of the chosen route, from the known territory to far away uncharted remote places. Experience true Back Country flying under this safe glider with awesome performance levels.
Ikuma, the Back Country glider.
Available also the Ikuma P (light version). Same revolutionary design and same incredible sensations, but built with 100% ultralight materials to bring the wing’s weight down to a bare minimum.
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.
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.
Structured Leading Edge
The SLE provides more rigidity and stability along the span of leading edge but also allows full flexibility along 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.
