NIVIUK SLE & STE
The art technology applied to the Niviuk Serial gliders.
"Really an advantage to gain on safety and performance"
Olivier Nef, Niviuk Chief Designer.
SLE: STRUCTURED LEADING EDGE
The SLE technology provides more rigidity and stability along the span of leading edge but also allows full flexibility along the both the vertical and horizontal axis of each open cell. The SLE ensures ease of movement on the ground and high security in the air during turbulence and whilst flying at speed.
STE: STRUCTURED TRAILING EDGE
With the STE technology the circulation of the air is more fluid, maintaining a consistent airflow at the trailing edge, and obtaining a cleaner airflow at high speeds. When we reduce the speed of the wing, it is its entire surface which slowly starts to bend, not only its trailing edge, as happens with the wings that do not have STE. The pitch control is notably improved as well.
