The right glider for the right reasons. Able to adapt to all conditions with minimum risk. The perfect balance between ambition and passion with a safe and pleasant glider to fly with.
With the Ikuma no one can stop you to fly the skies at will, and discover new feelings along the way. Immerse yourself into new adventures full of intense emotions in each flight while following the most remote routes.
Developed with passion to face new challenges. The Ikuma draws attention and defines a new standard in its segment, with a piloting out of the ordinary. Powerful and agile, with an incomparable efficiency and comfort.

Designed to cover a broad range of pilot needs in a new category we have named Back Country, a definition explaining a new flying style rather than defining it by a certification code. The Ikuma meets the criteria demanded by all pilots with various expectations, offering them performance and safety in this new glider.

Tenacity and persistence to always skilfully reach for the next big achievement was the catalyst for Niviuk to design the Ikuma. As with the most precious diamonds found deep in the Earth's surface, our engineers, lead by Olivier Nef, brought the wing to life. Serene, precise and fun to fly, it is the perfect glider to those most passionate and ambitious pilots.

With a sporty character, the Ikuma was engineered to enjoy and maximize every flight, feeling natural instinctive states of mind with each new flown route. Stress free piloting becomes essential and will let you concentrate on the fun part of the flight only. Guide your wing without restraints to wherever your fancy leads you.

Allow yourself to discover new corners of the sky regardless of the chosen route, from the known territory to far away uncharted remote places. Experience true Back Country flying under this safe glider with awesome performance levels.

Ikuma, the Back Country glider.

Available also the Ikuma P (light version). Same revolutionary design and same incredible sensations, but built with 100% ultralight materials to bring the wing's weight down to a bare minimum.

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.
