The NIKITA XTC acro paraglider is designed to easily perform all aerobatic maneuvers in normal or rotated flight. Active safety with minimal passive safety ensure that the NIKITA XTC acts immediately and according to your wishes.
The Nikita XTC is suitable for all pilots who want to learn or fly acrobatics and who have already mastered all advanced SIV and basic acro maneuvers with an EN-B wing.
Depending on the wing loading (flight weight/glider area) the Nikita XTC is suitable for learning acro at a load of less than 4.6 kg/m2, for mastering acro at a load between 4.6-5.6 kg/m2 and suitable for acro competitions over 5.6 kg/m2.
The NIKITA XTC is a long range acro paraglider. It has the characteristic "soft brake pressure", the same as the previous models. "Soft Brake Pressure" means that for every kilogram of force on the brake line you get the maximum effect on the movement of the wing. The internal pressure is moderate, so the NIKITA XTC feels like a paraglider and not heavy when flying. DynamicStall, Misty, Mactwist and Rhythmic are super easy to fly and won't tire your biceps.
Compared to its predecessor models, the NIKITA XTC is characterized by the following features:
It increases the range of pilot skills, is suitable for learning, is optimized for easy learning of helicopter connections, performs infinite tumbling with more energy and is stable, contains new technologies and innovations, has a highly optimized and fully adjustable riser system with free brakes and pulleys and is designed to be slower with the same load. In addition, it lasts longer because it has greater stability against plastic deformation.
Please be aware that the lower load limit for each glider size represents the minimum required to maintain infinite tumbling motion. Consult an ACRO flight instructor to find the ideal paraglider size for your weight and skill level.

"El NIKITA XTC vuela con precisión y estabilidad. La Esfera funciona sin problemas y las transiciones están perfectamente vinculadas. El Helicóptero es estable y, ya sea que se eleve en una pendiente o en vuelo de acro, me encanta la dinámica controlable de la vela. El NIKITA XTC es el digno sucesor de los 5..."
