The Niviuk Octagon 2 is one of the most advanced and safest parachutes on the market, offering greater stability in roll and a lower descent rate so that your contact with the ground is even more gentle and smooth.
The revolutionary octagonal design offers the best emergency solution for the pilot: a smooth, controlled descent with high stability. Its unique shape guarantees a quick deployment, it maximises the benefits of the parachute and is also lightweight and comfortable to carry.
The incorporation of a stabilisation system into the octagonal design mean an oscillation rate between 0 to 5º, well below the average market rate between 10 to 15º. With such small oscillation, the pilot avoids the pendulum effect during the descent and the risk of accelerating the fall is absolutely zero. Undoubtedly, one of the most stable parachutes in the world.
A gentle return to earth
The landing is of utmost importance. Thanks to its octagonal design with a greater aerodynamic area, the reduction of the pendulum effect, the minimisation of down-planing when the paraglider is still open and an excellent braking surface, the Octagon 2 is a parachute with a low descent rate of only 4.8 m/s, meaning smooth and completely safe contact with the ground.
Available in six sizes: 80 (S), 100 (M), 120 (L), 140 (XL), 170 (XXL) and 215 (tandem).
