NIVIUK QUBIK – EXPERIENCE EVER JOURNEY
PPG PROGRESSION | DGAC
The structure was designed down to the smallest detail to make the Qubik a fast and versatile wing, with effective and accessible trimmers for an extensive speed-range that will allow you to enjoy long flights.
DESIGNED FOR GREATER STABILITY
The architecture of the wing permits a better absorption of turbulence, with the added advantage of optimum speed retention in all the phases of the flight, to ensure the wing remains compact and safe.
COMFORT COMPLETES THE EXPERIENCE
From the moment of take off, there is an instant sensation of comfort. The wing’s reflex system means more performance and also more relaxation when flying long hours. Prepare to enjoy every moment.
EXPERIENCE EVERY JOURNEY
Your next step in the world of paramotoring has a name. The Qubik boasts excellent performance in flight, combining stability, speed and safety in an innovative design to match all your expectations. A wing to progress and experience the thrills of this exciting discipline.
Thanks to the latest 3DL and 3DP technologies, the profile is even cleaner. We have added a reinforced seam at the leading edge to achieve an accurate orientation in the fabric for optimal load distribution. This means above average performance as well as improving the glider’s durability.
Easy inflation will allow the pilot to take off perfectly and start enjoying all the benefits of this new wing. Thanks to the use of the RAM Air Intake, the cell openings permit optimal maintenance of internal pressure for better turbulence absorption, excellent piloting at high and low speed, lower risk of collapse and more control. Excellent speed retention makes landing simple, making the start and end of each flight easy and comfortable.
The Qubik offers excellent performance with a wide speed-range. The design of the front axis means the wing reaches and maintains high speed without deformations in the leading edge. The ideal tensioning is always guaranteed. This makes the Qubik a much faster wing than the Link 2, achieving a top speed of 65 km/h when accelerated at full power. The wing features an accessible and easy to use trimmer system.
The trailing edge is reinforced with small integrated ribs that flatten the surface and better distribute the pressure at the back of the wing, significantly reducing drag and optimising the turn to make it more efficient. For this reason the Qubik has a great range of movement, with more control and precision but without adversely affecting the profile. Firm and responsive brakes are augmented by the high-speed tip steering which connects the stabilo to the main brake controls.
As in all Niviuk paramotor wings, the Qubik features the Reflex System Profile, which requires less power and therefore reduces fuel consumption, allows greater autonomy, mechanical efficiency and performance. Additionally, the wing is constructed using extremely durable materials and is reinforced with Nitinol rods.
In short, the Qubik is ideal to take your next step in the world of paramotoring. Speed, stability and comfort come together in a wing that will take you beyond your comfort zone, elevate you to the next level and allow you to enjoy incredible adventures.
3DL: 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.
3DP: 3D PATTERN CUT OPTIMIZATION
The latest glider generation requires a new pattern design and an optimized fabric cutting process based on a 3D technology.
RAM: 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.
RSP: REFLEX SYSTEM PROFILE
The highly efficient Reflex System Profile (RSP) unlike conventional reflex designs requires less engine power to achieve greater thrust, thus resulting in lower fuel consumption, more autonomy and higher overall motor efficiency.
SLE: 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.
TNT: 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.

“Inflating the glider was effortless in very light wind, there was no evidence of it hanging back and was very easy to control once inflated. Flying at slow trim I was doing 43kpm, flying with fully open trimmers at 54 kph it felt very stable with no oscillating. It turns very nicely. The separate tips, as well as brakes, made the glider turn sharper. Building up the energy over a few turns was fun but not demanding and it soon recovered to straight flight. ” – Danny Kettle

WHY IS THIS WING CERTIFIED THROUGH THE DGAC INSTEAD OF THE EN STANDARD?
Currently the EN standard is used to certify free-flying wings. This means that manufacturers have to submit their gliders for the certification tests WITHOUT the engine and therefore the results are not based on the weight or load that the wing will be subjected to in real flight.
For this reason, paramotor wings certified in accordance with the EN standard are ONLY tested within a certain weight-range and in the vast majority of cases this certified load is lower than the most common loads in actual flight.
For example, a paramotor wing (size 24) can bear a load up to 120 kg (tested for a load up to 5.25 G under the DGAC standard). Under the EN standard, this would be certified for a weight-range of 65 – 85 kg (tested for a load up to 8 G). Any pilot flying this wing with a higher wing loading, for example 105 kg, would not be complying with the EN certification.
In conclusion, if the paramotor wing is flown outside the EN certified weight-range, it is equal to flying it WITHOUT certification and therefore neither the flight test nor structural test can be seen as valid. After an in-depth analysis of this issue we have concluded that the EN certified weight-ranges are not representative of paramotor wings because they can create confusion and misinformation. Therefore, we have decided to use the DGAC certification as our main reference.
WHAT ABOUT OFFERING EN AS WELL AS DGAC CERTIFICATION?
We could also undergo the EN certification process, but designing a paramotor wing solely to obtain the certification within a certain weight-range would prevent us from optimising the type, capabilities and performance of the wing.
Our objective is to design our wings to offer maximum safety in every aspect of flight and to guarantee this for all our gliders and products on the market.
WHAT EXACTLY IS DGAC?
DGAC is a legal document that guarantees that the brand will meet all the requirements for a particular wing to function correctly and grant maximum safety to the pilot.
In this way, we demonstrate that from the outset our wing was designed and developed with the sole objective of being flown with a paramotor, complying with the performance and safety requirements across all weight-ranges.
