Niviuk Klimber P Paragliding Wing
The Klimber P is the first lightweight high-performance Niviuk EN D wing. Fully certified, this new model is intended for those pilots who want more: more performance, more aerodynamics, more adrenaline.
The Klimber P features a surprisingly short and fast take off, is totally consistent and without the tendency to over-shoot. For this reason the pilot is able to take off from the steepest slope, the narrowest ridge or the most irregular terrain, even in the most complex weather conditions.
Fundamental in the design and construction of this model has been the combination of technologies and materials which are light but extremely high quality: the upper cascade is made from unsheathed Dyneema and the lower cascade and main lines are made from unsheathed Edelrid; 5.5 mm Dyneema risers, Interlock System (IKS) instead of the classic maillons, the upper and lower surface is made from ultra-light 27g Skytex cloth; the reinforced leading edge uses 32g cloth and Nitinol rods have allowed us to reduce weight and they permit better airflow into the sail thanks to their ability to keep the shape of the cell openings intact. Finally, the internal wing architecture has been optimised to reduce the weight of the diagonal and profile ribs, which always maintain an optimum load capacity.
The performance factor is noticeable from first flight. The Klimber P has an incredible climb capacity thanks to its profile and trimming, designed to quickly take advantage of any rising thermal.
With a top speed approaching 60 km/h, the pilot will be able to maintain the perfect line through the effective glide offered by the wing. The effective glide is due to the ultra-lightness of the wing and its efficient aerodynamic profile.
Finally, the long and smooth brake travel provides a wide range of speeds and allows absolute control, an essential advantage especially when landing in narrow or complicated places. With the Klimber P the pilot can study their options and select the landing spot without the risk of stalling and after a precise landing, can complete or continue their epic adventure.
