Paramotor Video: A Flight In The Life Of Shane

This film is for our good buddy James Allred 🙂   We know you’re hiding some amazing footage from a recent flight so, get going please fine sir.  But seriously, this video is from a recent flight from our lead paramotor test pilot, Shane Denherder.

Shane seems to be liking the Thor 190 so far but he still has a long way to go to get to the 50 hour mark for testing. We’ll be doing much more Thor focused testing now that the weather has warmed up.  Be sure to stop by and check it out at this years Endless Foot Drag Fly in.

Niviuk Releases Kougar2 and Dobermann Reflex Wings

The long-anticipated release of the Kougar2 and Dobermann paramotor wings has finally come.

Niviuk has released technical details and features on it’s new line of high-tech reflex paramotor wings, accommodating both casual cruisers as well as the highest level of competition slalom and freestyle pilots.

One theme that both wings share is the RAM technology found in top-tier competition paragliders. As the industry’s first reflex wings to use RAM air intake technology, the Kougar 2 and Dobermann offer speed and efficiency that others cannot share without compromising safety and stability – it’s science.  Not familiar with RAM?  Read more  about this new technology on Niviuk’s site.

Both Kougar2 and Dobermann will be available in June. Updates and information will be posted at Niviuk Paramotor Wings’ Facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/Niviukmoto   Follow the links below for the Niviuk Doberman and Kougar2 tech specs / details.

Niviuk Paramotor Wings’ Mission Profile:

Koyot2 Moto koyot2 By popular request, Niviuk has adapted it’s highly successful beginner wing to paramotoring with the addition of trimmable risers and adjustable brake positions.  Comfort, safety, and fun are the traits that make the Koyot2 Moto ideal for beginners.  A structured leading edge, easy launch characteristics, and fun handling assure that the casual beginner will enjoy the safety of an EN-A for a long time before wanting to progress on to more advanced designs.

Link linkshot The Niviuk Link is a dynamic and capable EN-B rated wing suitable for highly-skilled beginners and advanced pilots alike.   The Link is most known for it’s pitch stability and dynamic handling – two traits that generally don’t go hand-in-hand.   We’ve been flying the Link for the past 2 months and have found that our students are successful flying it, and our seasoned alumni love it as well.  The Link is best suited to fill the niche of an intermediate’s go-to wing, or an advanced pilot’s easy wing.  When the conditions are going to make flying tricky, (high elevations, zero wind, high altitude missions, etc.) the Link answers with it’s easy launch characteristics, high efficiency and climb rate, as well as the ability to land just about anywhere – should you be forced to do so.  Sized appropriately, this is THE one-wing-quiver for the casual pilot.  If you’re considering a step up from your beginner wing, or want a more efficient intermediate wing, contact us for a demo.

Kougar2 kougar2dive The mission profile of the Kougar2 is a highly-efficient and versatile reflex wing targeted toward strong-intermediate to expert pilots.  The Kougar2’s predecessor was capable of extreme altitudes and long-distance flights.  The Kougar2 promises more agility though improved wing loading, as well as improved security and efficiency through a new reflex profile that combines features of the highest-performing competition paragliders.  The Kougar2 will offer smaller sizes as well, insuring greater stability and more dynamic handling.  These features combine to offer an extremely efficient, fast, and stable glider.  The Kougar2 details will be announced shortly, Niviuk Paramotor Wings USA will have several demos in popular sizes as soon as the Kougar2 is released – https://www.facebook.com/Niviukmoto

Doberman niviuk-doberman If you’re an expert pilot looking for high-speed thrills, efficiency, and maneuverability; the Doberman is going to be your new best friend.  Word about this advanced slalom wing first surfaced late last summer, and the first prototypes made their appearance in the hands of Ramon Morillas on the FAI World Slalom circuit.  Since then, the Niviuk R&D team has been optimizing this design with it’s team pilots to provide slalom racers with more safety and stability on a highly-efficient and maneuverable platform than currently available.  Look for the Doberman on the world slalom circuit this summer, and be sure to check with Niviuk Paramotor Wings USA for demos in popular sizes after it’s release – https://www.facebook.com/Niviukmoto   niviuk-link-landang
