Niviuk HOOK 5 P – Lightweight
PROGRESSION + HIKE & FLY
Adventures with total safety
Your absolute priority is ours as well. The latest technological innovations have been applied to the design of the wing, to give you maximum safety starting with a simple takeoff to a controlled, smooth landing.
Light as a feather
The Hook 5 P is ideal to encourage you to reach new goals during your adventures. Its main characteristics are comfort, intuitive handling, effective and stable glide, reduced inertia and collapse-resistance.
Improve your performance in flight with a wing that gives you total control with quick responses to inputs and precise turns. Its aerodynamic design enhances all its features so you can release your inner adventurer.
All about Hook 5 P ▼
The light version of the Hook 5 will help you choose your own adventure. Ultralight weight and reduced volume enhance the passive safety and comfort of this wing and ensure excellent accessibility and more intuitive handling. Take off and feel the unequaled sensation of freedom.
Begin your first hike & fly experiences with an easy inflation that will allow you to take off with little wind from any terrain. Once in flight, the efficiency and the stability in glide will take the sensation of comfort to the max, with a sensitive handling and the minimum of inertia. The latest advances in the Radial Sliced Diagonal, 3DL and 3DP technologies mean perfect tensioning for a more efficient wing without deformations and greater performance.
The leading edge is designed to be stable and efficient during glides, with fast response to inputs. The wing won’t turn during incidents. The improved RAM Air Intake optimises the internal pressure of the wing for a more consistent profile across the entire speed-range and giving the pilot complete control and confidence.
The trailing edge is reinforced with small ribs for a better pressure distribution. This not only improves glide, but also increases speed and its performance in thermals. Like the Hook 5, this lightweight version knows how to take advantage of turbulence, converting it to lift progressively, making piloting easier.
Some of the wing’s strongest points are maneuverability, response and simple to initiate turns. The Hook 5 P provides excellent feedback which is ideal for active flying and progressing safely. Longer brake travel means it is is possible to fly at slower speeds with complete control and a landing that is easy and safe.
Its light configuration with IKS connections makes the Hook 5 P an easy to transport paraglider, ideal for new adventurers. Thanks to the use of Nitinol rods the wing maintains its optimum shape even after ultra-compact or incorrect folding, so that the wing is not deformed.
For sure, the Hook 5 P is the perfect wing for your first hike & fly and vol-biv tours. An ultralight paraglider which offers maximum safety and comfort from the moment of launch to landing. It will enhance your flying experience with its excellent maneuverability. A wing to release your inner adventurer.
Radial Sliced Diagonal
RSD (Radial Sliced Diagonal) technology is a reinvention of the wing’s internal structure. This new design is based on individual diagonal panels arranged in radial form, which increase the efficiency of the internal structure considerably.
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 that makes 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.
The IKS (Interlock System) is an ultra-lightweight, high strength connecting system that aims to complement the light product range and replace the current systems based on the use of the maillons and/or carabiners. This new system is based on a secure connection using a simple Dyneema loop provided with a fixing and locking system, ensuring the complete efficiency and safety of the connection, and allowing the equipment to be ready at all times, either with or without load.
RAM Air Intake
Evolution and constant improving in all our products is the essence of the DNA of Niviuk’s R&D team. Thanks to the new technologies created over recent years, we 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 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.
Constantly innovating, we 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, we decided to be the firsts manufacturer to use Nitinol in our glider line.
