Innovation

Intelligent cells (Smart Cells)

Why build all the cells the same when the load on them is different? Irregular loading leads to warping and deforming during flight and this adversely affects the performance of the wing.

Smart Cells counteract these mechanical strength problems. In NOVA paragliders that have been constructed using Smart Cells the cell widths have been adapted to the load – basically, intelligent cells. Thanks to this feature the paragliders fitted with SmartCells fly more calmly, feel more solid and glide better. Smart Cells give you a tangible benefit.

NEEDLE EYE RIBS: Higher rigidity, Better performance , More stability

Needle-eye ribs are a new interpretation of the method of constructing four and five piece ribs. Instead of sewing diagonal ribs to one side of a vertical profile rib and then sewing the continuation to the other side (the conventional way), our needle-eye rib technology uses slots to allow the diagonal ribs to traverse the vertical profile ribs. The consequence is improved manufacturing precision and wing rigidity which has a positive influence on the performance of the canopy.

Needle-eye ribs permit up to five cells to be spanned with only two suspension points. This leads to a reduction in the number of lines required and therefore there is less parasitic drag – which has another positive impact on performance. So needle-eye ribs have a double positive impact on the performance of the paraglider.

 

AIR SCOOP: More pressure, more stability, more performance

Performance under pressure. As far back as 2006 (when we were working on the Rookie, DHV 1-2) we were considering how we could reduce the loss of internal wing pressure during accelerated flight. The solution: we changed the cell openings so that during acceleration the intake area is not as reduced than in a conventional cell opening.

The idea is similar to the ram-air inlet duct on a sports car: the more intake area the more charging and internal pressure.

Since the Rookie we have continued to develop and optimise the Air Scoop. Today most of our paragliders are fitted with the Air Scoop. It improves the collapse resistance, particularly in accelerated flight, and simultaneously increases performance. So this feature is good for both safety and performance.

 

DOUBLE 3D SHAPPING: Performance of smoothness

Our anti-wrinkle treatment. Double 3D Shaping could be called an anti-wrinkle treatment for the nose of the wing: with two seams across the entire span of the top sail, we reduce the number of creases which are a consequence of the curvature over two axes. Two axes, because the sail cloth has to align to the profile form and the ballooning also determines a radius which the cloth also has to follow.

It is as if trying to fold a piece of paper smoothly around a ball. Impossible without a few wrinkles.

Double 3D Shaping divides the sections to be folded into smaller subsections. This allows us to get close to achieving the ideal crease-free form. The result of Double 3D Shaping: the creases on the profile nose are clearly reduced and this leads to better performance.

 

GENUINE THREE-LINER: Fewer lines, more performance

Less is more. Nearly all our paragliders are based on the concept of a three-liner. Our idea of a three-liner with less line length allows us to construct wings with very good performance and a high degree of passive safety. The way we have conceptualised the lines has made it possible to manufacture wings which are collapse resistant; but when they do collapse, the collapsed area is generally less extensive. This significantly improves the wing's extreme flight behaviour.

 

LOW ASPECT RATION: Take-off and enjoy

Compact and safe. The aspect ratio of a glider is not the only factor in passive safety, but still a very important one. For this reason our wings have the aspect ratio they require. Our design motto is as much as necessary, as little as possible.

Generally, a lower aspect ratio improves what is called the ‘compactness’ in technical jargon, which is the feeling of having a solid wing above you; that handles well and appears to have enough mechanical strength to withstand collapses.

As a rule, higher aspect ratio leads to more demanding flying characteristics. After collapses there is the danger of cravats. Our goal is to produce less demanding wings.

 

LIGHT WEIGHT: Less weight, more fun

Responsible weight loss. It is one thing to reduce weight to a minimum. To guarantee robustness and durability is another. It is very important to us to ensure that the mechanical robustness of our wings is sufficiently high.

It is essential that the loads created during flight do not permanently deform the sail cloth particularly the profile ribs as this would influence the flying characteristics and reduce the performance of the wing.

We test the durability and robustness of the materials we use in our in-house laboratory. Therefore we know which cloth can be used in which part of the wing. The result is a well-thought out lightweight wing. As light as possible. As solid as necessary.

 

WEIGHT OPTIMISED: Easy to carry, great to fly

Lightness that excites. The trend for lightweight paragliders continues. All our weight-optimised paragliders are not only lighter than conventional models – they are also equally durable and mechanically stable. Lightweight and durable – the perfect combination.

These wings offer the perfect package for all pilots who appreciate reduced wing weight without the need to compromise on durability. As well as making the wing more comfortable to carry, lighter weight also makes launching easier.

Keep it simple! Simplicity is our motto. NOVA paragliders can be stored in a concertina bag, but it is not essential (we haven't found that concertina bags prolong the life of the wing). If in a hurry, they can be stuffed into the inner bag (but please don’t store them like this in the long-term!).

We use the conventional packing method for our own wings: lay the wing flat with lines on top and then fold towards the middle. Then fold, rather than roll, the glider towards the nose as this improves the comfort when carrying it in the glider bag. This is possible due to our conservative use of rods – they are only used in the profile nose.

To us, paragliding means freedom. And freedom means not having to deal with complicated equipment. Keep it simple!

 

Service

Every NOVA paraglider comes with a big package of extra services and guarantees. When you buy the wing you get more than just the product1.

NOVA Trim Tuning

Through use, paraglider lines shrink or stretch. Generally, A and B lines stretch, whereas C lines shrink. As a result the wing flies slower and the handling is less agile. All lines are affected in this way – regardless of material or manufacturer.

To ensure your complete flying fun and your safety we developed NOVA Trim Tuning (NTT) with the help of paragliding instructor and mathematician Ralf Antz. After 15 to 20 flying hours this stretching or shrinking is basically complete. We recommend that you then immediately send the wing to us or an authorisied partner.

We will measure all the lines, analyse the trimming using special software and then put your wing back to its optimal flying condition. If you take this opportunity of this service, you will benefit from the 3 Years No Check Required: after the NTT your wing only needs to be checked again three years after the date of purchase (provided you do not exceed the number of hours stated in the manual).

NOVA Protect

NOVA Protect is a fully comprehensive protection package for your paraglider – one year after purchase and after registering your wing with myNOVA, your wing is insured against accidental damage. We will repair tears, replace lines or panels (EUR 50.- deductible plus VAT).

If your wing is irreparably damaged, we will deduct the current value of your wing when purchasing a new NOVA paraglider. This means we offer an exceptional service which gives you the security that – if the worst should happen – the anguish over a damaged new wing is reduced.

And the best thing: NOVA Protect is free* with the purchase of any new NOVA paraglider.

NOVA Full Service & Repair

When it comes to checks we are very particular - that's why we don't just call it a check, but a NOVA Full Service. We check all the details of the paraglider: porosity, line lengths, correct trimming, etc. With our in-house developed software package, the Quality Assurance Database (NOVA QAD), the person servicing the wing can view previous checks. You too can view your glider's service history - which is obviously protected by password.

Like during the NOVA Trim Tuning, the person servicing the glider will measure all the lines and feeds the data automatically into the diagnostic software. Using the measurements, the software calculates the sail trim and suggests possible trim corrections. These are evaluated by the person servicing the glider and then implemented through loops at the carabiners.

All measurement and check data is held centrally and can be downloaded and analysed at any time using the Quality Assurance Database. This allows us to determine how, in what distribution and to what extent the lines go out of trim. Using this data we can draw conclusions and improve our know-how on lines for future gliders. As a technical and innovative company we are always concerned with further development and safety.

 

Guarantee terms and conditions ↗

3 Years No Full Service Required

Imagine two years have passed and you have to do your 2 year check. Then fly a wing from NOVA! If your wing has had the NOVA Trim Tuning, then we will extend the period until the next service check from two to three years (from date of purchase) – provided you do not exceed the number of hours before a service is needed, as stated in the manual.

The extension of the interval before the next service allows you to concentrate on what you enjoy: the flying. We at NOVA wish you great flights!

Guarantee terms and conditions ↗

 

4 Years On Materials

For additional peace of mind, we guarantee your paraglider for a further three years* as standard. This guarantee covers material as well as well as workmanship.

If your NOVA Trim Tuning and a NOVA Full Service was completed by an authorised NOVA partner, 4 Years On Materials comes into effect and this extends the guarantee to four years*. If we are unable to repair the problem, we will deduct the current value when purchasing of a new NOVA paraglider.

Quality Assurance Database

To us, a paraglider is more than just a few kilograms of plastic. We breath digital life into it. Registration at MyNOVA is its birth certificate; and the service data for its entire life is collected in our Quality Assurance Database. For the following two reasons our long-running system is not only practical, it is also vital for continuing quality assurance:

bulletFirstly, thanks to a user account our clients have unlimited access to all their important data - for example, the NOVA Full Service log, Trim Tuning data or even a change of owner.
bulletSecondly we gain a deeper insight into the durability of the material and lines through the collection of this data. This helps us inform our clients quickly in case of problems. Also, it helped/helps us to decide which materials are most suitable for everyday paragliding. It assists us to keep producing better paragliders.

NOVA approved service centres also have access to the database. The person responsible for the service can gain information on the wing before even opening it up. The Quality Assurance Database therefore improves the knowledge transfer - in the interest of our customers.

Guarantee terms and conditions ↗

 

1 The guarantee and service provision is limited, subject to conditions and not offered to the same extent in all countries. Detailed information is available in our guarantee conditions.

2 This service is included in the purchase price in selected countries. Please contact your dealer for more information.

3 This service covers damage incurred because of an accident while flying. Damage in other circumstances, personal injury, theft or other loss are excluded from this policy.

 

FAQ

What is the performance of my NOVA wing? How fast will it fly?

Performance data depends heavily on the drag created by the pilot and this is linked to their seating position and harness type. An aerodynamic harness or seating position can make the difference of one glide ratio point. We at NOVA never determine absolute performance data, instead we make comparisons with reference gliders. For this reason we do not publish performance data.

 

How should NOVA wings be stored?

Dry, not packed too tightly and if possible in a space without wide temperature variations - these are the conditions that make our paragliders feel well. You should never store a wing when it is moist. You should also avoid excessive heat, like you would have, for example, in the car. Never remove dirt using chemical detergents and/or brushes

How do I hold the brake line correctly?

How a pilot holds the brakes is a matter of personal preference - but it does have a marked influence on the handling and flying characteristics of the wing. We recommend a half-wrap. You hold the brake handle in your palm and twist it half way around your hand so that the brake line lies between your thumb and forefinger. This shortens the brake travel by approximately 20 centimetres and this has a positive effect on feedback - firstly you directly feel the travel of the brake line and secondly, with the arms positioned higher, it is easier to feel the wing. Due to poor ergonomics, we recommend against not taking this wrap. The exception is of course when gliding or during other phases of the flight when steering with the brake is not necessary. Please note: when changing from not having a wrap to taking the wrap, the shortened brake travel must be taken into consideration.

 

Does Nova test the materials used?

Sail cloth, lines and all other components are subjected to rigorous testing before they are used in serial production. We not only test the sail cloth for durability (high porosity or reduced tear resistance through UV damage or wear) but also for mechanical robustness, for example stretching. For quality control purposes we regularly take samples during serial production.

SUSI or PRION ­– which is the right wing for me?

If the PRION already offers a high degree of passive safety, the SUSI is additionally even easier in the handling. For example, the brake travel on the SUSI is very long, which makes it nearly impossible to stall the glider unintentionally. In comparison to the SUSI, the PRION offers more performance and more delicate handling. The best way to choose is to fly both gliders and decide which is the right wing for you.

   

How should NOVA wings be packed?

Simplicity is our motto. Our wings can be packed using a concertina bag, but it is not essential. In principle, all our wings can just be stuffed in a packsack. When the wing is folded it is recommended not to bend the rods unnecessarily. This is particularly true if the wing is to be stored for longer periods. Furthermore, we recommend careful handling of your wing.

 

Can I shorten the brake lines on a NOVA wing?

The brakes are components relevant to certification - modification can affect the flying characteristics and extreme flight behaviour. Because of this, we strongly advise against any modification of the brake system. It is important that the brake has sufficient travel before it engages. This is also important so that the wing does not brake automatically when the speed bar is used. Furthermore a brake that engages too early affects performance and influences the recovery during incidents, for example during a collapse or when the canopy goes parachutal.

 

What is the correct wing loading for NOVA gliders?

Where the glider is flown in the weight-range is first and foremost a question of personal preference: anyone seeking a high degree of agility and dynamic flying should fly our wings at the higher end of the weight-range. Pilots who are happier with gentle flights with a high degree of damping will be happier in the middle of the weight-range. Of course, the flying conditions have a big influence - in turbulent, windy conditions greater wing loading will bring greater stability; whereas flying the glider at the lower end of the weight-range makes it unbeatable in weak thermals. Correct wing loading is mainly a question of personal preference and the conditions in which you mainly fly. Your Nova dealer will be happy to advise you!

 

When should I send my wing for its first Nova Trim Tuning (NTT)?

During the initial flights the lines are first subjected to load. This load induces a small degree of stretching and shrinking. These are not associated with the line manufacturers or the quality of workmanship - in the factory all NOVA paragliders are trimmed and pre-stretched to within a very low tolerance. To adjust this stretching or shrinking, we recommend that the wing is taken for NTT (Nova Trim Tuning) after ten to twenty flights - after one year at the very latest. Generally, the line lengths remain constant after the first ten to twenty hours. To use make full use of the NTT, Nova encourages all pilots to have their wing checked after ten to twenty flying hours.
