For whom is it for:

The NIKITA 5 is the perfect instrument for talented freestyle pilots and pilots who want to move to the next level.

In the lower weight range NIKITA 5 gives you enough time to decide for the next maneuver and achieve the maximum out of your manoeuvres in the upper weight range as Acro professional.

The Characteristics:

Stable and forgiving in the Rhythmic – Infinity and Anti-rhythmic manoeuvres, which are performed by the NIKITA 5 roundly, harmonically and without any hard blows. Short steering ways enable fast changes from one maneuver to the next.
At all Helicopter-transition manoeuvres the wing turns willingly without remaining hanging. The NIKITA 5 stays extremely stable in Helicopter and only needs to be corrected slightly. The rotation speed in Helicopter is fast and thanks to the new valves in the cross ports a Twister can be induced by the pilot in seconds. The brake pressure is medium-hard, very precise and very noticeable when cutting off. This enables the pilot to induce a purposefully and abrupt stall. New-school-manoeuvres like Misty-Reverse, Joker, Cork screw ect… were never so easy to fly.

The Look

Extracts of the Edelweiß-logo decorate the NIKITA 5 – selected according to the special glider characteristics and your demand to leave a lasting impression in the sky.

The NIKITA 5 flies precisely and stable. The Esfera runs smoothly and the transitions run clean without hanging back. The Heli runs stable and when soaring on a slope or when Acro flying I love the controllable dynamic of the glider. The NIKITA 5 is a worthy successor to the 4
