NIVIUK HOOK DHV 1-2 Paraglider 85hours XS Excellent condition | The glider bought in 2008 new, used mountains and cliffs flying. 
The glider has few patches for small holes from bushes - I guess everyone run into bushes once. 
The material is very nice  and crispy, and not warn out - always took a very good care of the wing. Lines are bright and in perfect condition. Yellow color - the picture is of the actual glider. The C-risers have been marked with white paint color for easy identification - very useful indeed on high-winds launch. I have DHV-2 wing and have not used this glider for the last year, sad to see it sitting at home instead of being in the sky. I also tested this wing with SIV, very much pleased with recovery and maneuvers - has stability, speed and easy recovery.  

About Hook: "The Niviuk Hook paraglider is an intermediate DHV 1-2, with plenty of performance, but not a DHV 2 wing that slipped through the system! No category is more competitive than DHV 1-2 paragliders. Pilots looking for a DHV 1-2 wing are looking for performance with a strong margin of safety. There may be some “hot” 1-2’s that will beat a Niviuk Hook paraglider on a really long glide, but there is always a compromise. The Hook has a great feel in thermals, turns naturally and consistently. Niviuk’s Hook has amazing climbing performance too. Taking the Hook through a maneuvers course you will find it responds amazingly benignly on all the deflations, popping out so fast it is really hard to work to get it to simulate big deflations. The wing also has such a great feel that you will avoid deflations even in really nasty air by paying a bit of attention and flying the Hook actively. There have been many pilots who started on a Niviuk Hook DHV 1-2 as their first wing. An initial reluctance was that it has so much performance that it must be only for more advanced pilots, yet the built in safety and its relatively benign nature make it a great paraglider option for a talented beginner, as well as a paraglider for experienced pilots." I'll provide a return within one week with original condition for the glider. If you have any questions, please contact offline. Shipping is per buyer location. I may also be looking into selling old GPS, reserve and harness - contact me offline please if interested. thank you!
