The Ikuma P is the lightweight version of the standard Ikuma, the EN B ‘Easy Performance’ wing – but with up to 1.4 kg less weight*. Designed for pilots passionate about cross-country and Back Country, hike & fly or vol-biv adventures, this new lightweight model has reduced weight and volume to make it easier to carry and transport.
If the Ikuma was a wing designed for discovering new areas, going off the beaten track and discovering new and alternative routes (what we at Niviuk call Back Country), with the Ikuma P now you can reach take-offs which are currently difficult or impossible to access.
To reduce the wing’s weight and volume, the Ikuma P has been manufactured using lightweight materials: it is made from 27g Porcher Skytex and Dyneema risers, which are much lighter than conventional materials. The incorporation of Nitinol has also been a key factor in reducing the weight and it allows more compact packing without any risk of damage.
Reducing the weight by almost one and a half kilograms not only makes the paraglider easier to carry, it makes the handling much more responsive and reduces the inertia of the wing, making it more comfortable, safe and user-friendly from the moment of take-off and all through the flight. And all this alongside the successful characteristics of the standard model.
Ikuma P, the Back Country wing with less weight and more possibilities.
Like all P series gliders, the Ikuma P comes with IKS 1000 kg (a connecting system to join the lines to the risers) as standard. Being 25 times lighter (0.2 g), the IKS system has a load-bearing break point of 1000 kg, compared to the 550 kg of the classic maillons. IKS is an ultralight connection system specially designed for mountain and lightweight equipment.
