Niviuk Hook 2

Source: Niviuk Gliders

Niviuk has released its latest glider, the Hook 2 (EN B/LTF 1-2). The Hook 2 is available in 5 sizes, and 4 color options. Niviuk has used the same SLE (Structured Leading Edge) technology in the Hook 2 as it has in their very popular Artik 2 (EN C/LTF 2). This technology incorporates plastic batens into the leading edge to increase the strength and structure of the glider, reducing its susceptibility to collapses.

The Hook 2 has a higher arc and higher aspect ratio than than the original Hook.
