NIVIUK R-Bus Paraglider
The R-Bus is the first Niviuk tandem paramotor wing designed for use with a trike, taking loads up to 500 kilograms. Also suitable for foot-launched PPG tandems, the new R-Bus was conceptualised to become the ideal tool for both professional and recreational flights.
The R-Bus has the capacity to carry loads up to 500 kg
Solid but agile, it also permits a uniform inflation and rapid and progressive wing loading.
Efficiency is assured from the first to the last moment, resulting in takeoffs and landings that are simple, fast and accurate.
Like all Niviuk wings, the R-Bus is characterised by performance, quality and great flight behaviour. Features excellent wing loading and energy retention for comfortable, safe takeoffs and landings for both pilot and passenger.
The reinforced internal structure, as well as the optimised line configuration, means the load is perfectly distributed and balanced and this makes this wing capable of carrying up to 500 kg. Due to their lightweight nature, the incorporation of Nitinol rods in the profile also reduces the inertia and means a stiffer, crease-free leading edge to reduce parasitic drag.
The design of the line distribution permits a uniform inflation and the wing rises quickly, accurately and without the tendency over-shoot. A perfectly controllable launch phase is made possible thanks to the A Assist System, which allows the pilot to fix the A-risers to the trike to keep their hands free to comfortably handle the brake controls.
The increased lift generated by the aerofoil enables excellent wing loading, and as a result, neither long distances, high speeds or high engine power are required during takeoff. Thanks to this, neither high speed nor high engine power are required during takeoff. The R-Bus allows both pilot and passenger to quickly and easily take flight, even in less favourable conditions.
The comfort factor is also reflected in the degree of manoeuvrability of the wing. Its dual steering system enables the pilot to steer and turn efficiently without requiring much effort: the wing has both the main brake and a high-speed tip steering which allows the pilot to turn without pulling the brake, avoiding profile deformation and, as a result, a decrease of speed and performance.
The R-Bus is also equipped with a high efficiency profile, offering excellent top and cruising speeds. With the new built-in Trim Adjustor, the pilot can accurately control both the direction and speed, regardless of wing-loading. (Video available below)
Another strength of the R-Bus is its high degree of stability (also with light loads). Efficient glide means reduced fuel consumption and it gives the wing excellent energy retention and easy roundout for soft landings. In the case of engine failure, the reduced sink rate is big bonus for safety (-2.0/-2.2 m/s for a wing-loading of 420 kg).
While the sizes 37 and 40 are aimed at heavy tandem trikes, the smallest sizes 31 and 34 are perfect for all those interested in solo trikes, lightweight tandem trikes and foot-launched PPG tandems, thanks to the certified maximum load up to 400kg.
**In case of a trike designed to have elevated hang points, the R-Bus accessories include extra brake lines and the high speed tip is one meter longer. The pilot should exchange and adjust these as required.
The fabric, lines, risers and wing size can all be changed to customise and adapt the model to suit your needs and preferences. Contact us and we will personally explore all the possibilities.
