Niviuk // Skate 2
Niviuk // Skate 2
The Skate 2 is an excellent all-rounder speedriding wing - stable and easy to manage on skis and capable of hugging very steep terrain with the trims open.
The SKATE 2 is suited to the demands of the speedgliding pilots and the schools than the very successful predecessor.
The SKATE 2 has a new profile, more gliding but less lift which allows it to glide parallel with the ground in all relief. With three risers and a trim system which allows easy and ffective adjustments to the angle of attack the SKATE 2 can be securely set to follow the inclination of the slope, so preventing any unwanted take off. This trim system allows also a bigger speed range.
The reactions of the SKATE 2 at high speed or with great weight are progressive, predictable and noble. The profile does not allow to accumulate an excess of energy. In this way the glider remains controllable and precise.
The SKATE 2 is easy to use. Extremely easy to inflate, the action on the brakes is soft and progressive. An adequate repartition of the brake lines makes roll inexistent.
The Skate 2 is available in 4 sizes: from 8 up to 14 m. The most experienced and demanding riders will go for the smallest sizes. The less experienced riders will take advantage of the wide range of sizes, without being afraid not to progress. The schools will be able to put sizes at the disposition without fear that the rider will take off.
The result of all this mixture will make the SKATE 2 a new reference in the discipline of speed riding.
The Roamer is the reversible harness proposed with the SKATE 2. Fixings for skis and pockets for the quick folding bag (supplied) under the seat (for right or left handed pilots).
We can provide this wing with or without the Niviuk Roamer harness.
