Niviuk R-Bus

The Spanish manufacturer presents this new model designed specifically for flying paratrike with total load up to 500 kg. The R-Bus has a reinforced internal structure and a thought out line distribution that also makes inflation compact and simple. The glider has aspect ratio of 5.4 and 55 cells.

 

The R-Bus is equipped with a profile “of high efficiency” that offers great top and cruise speeds, according to the manufacturer. Its high lift allows for an “excellent wing loading” that helps for a short take-off, which does not require high speeds nor, therefore, high engine power.

Like other Niviuk gliders, the R-Bus incorporates Nitinol in the profile that, due to its lightness, helps reduce inertia and provides a stiffer and wrinkle-free leading edge to reduce drag, according to the manufacturer.

The paraglider has dual steering system: main brake and high-speed tip control, to make corrections when the trim is open without pulling the brake, in order to avoid deformations in the profile that would affect performance and speed.

At Niviuk state that the R-Bus is suitable for a large range of paramotors and trikes, as it is available in two sizes: 37 m2, perfect for flying with light trikes, in windy places or with footlaunched paramotors with moderate wind; and 40 m2, suitable for heavier structures.
