The new Peak 5 puts you one step ahead of the rest. This new model is the direct heir of the Icepeak Evox with all its features and its communicative spirit. A high performance wing with unprecedented accessibility within the EN D category.
The Peak 5 is a more balanced and compact paraglider than its predecessor, thanks to the application of the latest Niviuk innovations on the profile and the internal structure. This has permitted greater optimisation which can be seen in terms of performance and speed in active conditions.
The objective is to be in control of the wing in any circumstance, without the need to reduce the speed, and this is precisely what the Peak 5 achieves by never losing its stability, even at high speed.
All the know-how we gained during the design of our competition wing has been used to design a profile that uses air movements as a source of energy. In purest Niviuk style, the Peak 5 attacks and scales the different air masses and takes advantage of this inertia to give the pilot a plus in glide and performance.
The 3DL (3D Leading Edge) and 3DP (3D Pattern Cut) technologies have a direct impact on achieving a sharper profile, resulting in perfect tension distribution and eliminating any possible creases in the cloth. The number of attachment points has also been considerably reduced and all these attributes combine to ensure greater performance and durability of the materials.
The profile is also reinforced with Nitinol rods, since they maintain their optimal shape, even after a period of intensive use.
Thanks to Nitinol, and compared to other gliders that use nylon rods, it is not necessary to devote too much attention and effort to packing the wing absolutely perfectly.
The leading edge has been optimised with SLE (Structured Leading Edge) technology and impresses with a perfect finish that allows for better air flow along the entire wingspan. This translates into superior performance in all phases of the flight and together with RAM (Ram Air Intake) technology, a better internal air and pressure feed is achieved with a very low angle of attack that guarantees both the shape and lift even at high speeds.
With the DRS (Drag Reduction Structure) technology the wing features a sharper and thinner trailing edge, which in turn means optimised flight efficiency, improved handling and a much more pleasant flying experience.
New to the Peak 5 is an increase in the total number of cells (from 75 to 85), in order to achieve a more reinforced surface and an optimum tension distribution. In this way, the wing is more solid, compact and smooth.
Another new feature are the simplified ergonomic risers with additional handles which allow efficient rear riser steering, allowing better and more direct piloting in high speed conditions (new Ergo Handle).
The Peak 5 guarantees more efficient flying and the handling feels precise and firm so that the pilot feels confident and safe. In turn, it is easier to control the pitch at high speeds with active and firm use of the B-risers.
The pilot can concentrate on the flight, feel secure with the glider and keep flying full speed without sacrificing performance to control of the wing. The pitch and roll stability is not affected when reaching high speed or flying in thermals, since it enters them efficiently and climbs with extreme ease.
In conclusion, the Peak 5 offers top performance with the maximum of control. A responsive, solid wing with great feedback that allows you to achieve your best in a comfortable and fun way.
