Riser length limiter kit for Niviuk Icepeak 7 Pro

Monday 15 December, 2014

Niviuk Icepeak 7 pro riser kit for CCC

Niviuk pilots wishing to fly the Icepeak 7 Pro model in FAI cat I competitions from 2015 will need to fit a riser length limter kit to their glider, so that it conforms to CCC regulations.

The limiter kit for each riser comprises the following:

This kit is only required for the Icepak 7 Pro and not the Serial model.

Please contact Niviuk or your local dealer for details on how to obtain and fit the kit.

The FAI guidelines state :

CIVL Competition Class (CCC) – 2015 Edition / Revision 3.5
Paragliders permitted in FAI Category 1 Cross-Country events

5.2.4 Riser set layout
5.11 The test specimen’s riser sets are designed in a way that prevents a change of relative riser lengths beyond the one achieved by maximum acceleration system travel in the acceleration system configuration presented during certification. In particular, it prevents pilots from achieving speeds beyond the certified maximum speed through application of excessive force on the acceleration system, or through temporary modifications of the riser sets.

The only technical means to alter airspeed in flight are the test specimen’s brake and acceleration systems. Specifically, there are no trim tabs or any other devices present which can be used to alter airspeed in flight without maintained pilot input.
