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.

With the SLE system there is no longer a need to use large amounts of mylar material to achieve leading edge reinforcement. This reduction in material has reduced the weight of the leading edge and the result is precise handling on the ground and easier launches.

The SLE also helps to prevent deformation of the leading edge mylars and therefore with correct care will extend the life and efficiency of your glider.

In addition to the SLE, we work on new geometry and layout of the internal reinforcement. This new internal re structuring offers better overall cohesion of the glider and incredible stability during turbulence.

Niviuk Hook 2 (PAST MODEL) Reviews

Simple but responsive wing with good thermalling turn on 19/04/2012
  • Star Rating
We recommend this for pilots from school-leaving level to xc, due to its sweet handling, easy turns and simplicity. It fits nicely in the middle of its class, suitable for new pilots with a good feeling of what they are doing or for pilots looking for security without losing the nice sensation of flying.
