About the Icepeak Evox
The time has come to change things. The Icepeak Evox is the result of years of research by Niviuk's R & D team, who applied the most advanced technologies to achieve a complex structure, combined with the best features to achieve excellence in flight.
The optimisation of the 3DL and 3DP technologies results in an innovative wing with a solid finish, without creases and perfectly tensioned, and thus improving both performance and durability. In addition, the Nitinol rods reinforcement gives to the profile an optimal shape and avoids deformations even after incorrect packing.
It is a perfectly solid and balanced glider which proves its mettle in both strong and calm conditions. Its thermal performance is outstanding - entering efficiently and climbing with extreme ease. In addition, the leading edge was optimised to achieve a perfect finish, allowing improved airflow and increasing performance in all facets of flight.
In the handling, the wing is very communicative, which means precise and accessible piloting. Improvements in the DRS system significantly reduce drag at the trailing edge, optimising turns and making it more effective in flight. Therefore, the wing has excellent manoeuvrability, range of movement and greater precision without losing accessibility.
The application of ergonomic controls allows intuitive and efficient B-riser steering, allowing better piloting in high-speed conditions, without much drag. At the same time, a considerable improvement in the STE system means the profile remains more consistent, perfectly maintaining its stability and making the recovery of the trailing edge after braking more progressive, quicker and active.
Its stability in pitch and roll is a benchmark, using the air mass perfectly to create the energy to recover and push forward. Internal pressure optimisation achieves better turbulence absorption, greater profile consistency across the speed range and excellent slow-flying characteristics. It also allows the pilot to extend the braking limit for more control and stability.
In short, the Icepeak Evox is Niviuk at its maximum potential. The constant search for perfection has resulted in a structurally complex wing, offering the best performance in flight with more speed, more versatility and more competitiveness. A glider that will quickly give you the confidence to focus totally on the competition. In short, a wing to challenge the status quo.
Feel the excitement of high-level competition with a top performance wing made to meet the most demanding expectations of top-level pilots. An extraordinary flying experience at the highest level to make the difference at the most decisive moments.
The Best Feeling
Intuitive handling when flying at high speeds. Effective controls, vast speed range and maximum stability are combined in a modern and revolutionary design that makes its complexity completely accessible. A wing that offers much and demands little.
Niviuk in its soul
The name Icepeak Evox stands for achievement, experience and passion. This wing is Niviuk in its purest form. A glider without precedent, it is the result of years of research by their R & D team. Niviuk aimed to make sure that every detail reaches the maximum of its 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 make 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 Niviukproducts is the essence of the DNA of Niviuk's R&D team. Thanks to the new technologies created over recent years, Niviuk 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 the 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.
Structured Trailing Edge
The STE optimises the profile without deforming it. Niviuk can thus obtain less resistance and better performance.
Constantly innovating, Niviuk 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, Niviuk decided to be the firsts manufacturer to use Nitinol in Niviuk glider line.
"A-ma-zing. I do not have words to describe this new rocket! Thank you to the designers Nef Olivier, Tim Rochas and all those who contributed to the creation of such a machine! The Icepeak Evox is waiting for the sun to express its potential for miles! To be continued!"
- Julien Irilli
"The feeling I get under the wing is more comfort, more security as well, and even when close to the relief, you're not afraid to accelerate.
The wing gives you some room to focus on other things besides actual piloting, like observing how others are flying, take more time to check out the instruments and the conditions up in the air, so it makes a difference."
- Loïs Goutagny
"I feel good underneath, comfortable and safe. With this kind of sport it's important. It will allow me to go explore the Écrins, just next to where I fly near the large mountains. If on top of things youre feeling good, well, that's magical."
"At the piloting level, Icepeak Evox is quite present in the command. This presence / pressure gives a very good precision during turns and allows to get an interesting feedback. In thermal, the wing keeps a very good glide, it is easy to place it where you want, to refocus the ascendance and to tighten a thermal near the relief, especially in strong conditions."
