HOOK 4 P
To achieve a reduction of nearly a kilo and a half, the Hook 4 P has been made of lightweight materials: Porcher Skytex 27g fabric, Nitinol rods and Dyneema risers, which are much lighter than those used in conventional wings. Additionally, unlike the conventional version, the Hook 4 P has thinner, unsheathed lines.  Find out more

R-BUS
Niviuk launched their first tandem paramotor wing (for all types of trikes and foot-launched dual PPGs). It stands out for being able to load up to 500 kg. Available in sizes 37 and 40, the R-Bus is a highly tough, stable and durable glider designed for short, quick and simple takeoffs, with comfortable and safe landings for both pilot and passenger. Find out more

SKIN 2
We reviewed the original Skin P, which we found astonishing. Well, Niviuk are back with an upgrade! The revolutionary single-surface wing now has an improved structure and design; it is easier and safer to land thanks to efficient energy retention for a smooth roundout. The ultra-lightweight version (P) will also be coming, along with the first single-surface lightweight tandem (BI SKIN 2 P, EN-B 3.3 kg) designed so that the pilot and passenger can undertake hike & fly and vol-biv adventures together.

DOBERMANN 2
The Dobermann 2 is an agile and very fast wing, targeted at experienced competition and slalom paramotor pilots, who also want a comfortable and safe glider. It also provides excellent glide efficiency and a wide speed range, which are very valuable characteristics for freestyle and recreational pilots. More info

N-GRAVITY 4
A pro level acro wing, designed to be powerful and dynamic. The incorporation of valves in the undersurface facilitates vertical descent manoeuvres such as the helicopter, due to a better conservation and distribution of the wing’s inner pressure. The end result makes the N-Gravity 4 a safer, more efficient glider during the chain of aerobatic moves and recoveries.
