MENTOR 3 light – Making light work of XC flying
The MENTOR 3 light is much more than just a light-weight version of the MENTOR 3: this is a paraglider with its own character and it combines the attributes of performance, lightness and durability like few other wings. In comparison to the MENTOR 3, the weight is reduced by approximately 1.5 kg in wings of equal size.
Lightness and durability. Our mission when developing the MENTOR 3 light, was to combine these seemingly contradictory attributes. On the one hand, the wing had to be very light for use in the Red Bull X-Alps, but on the other hand it had to remain suitable for everyday use. As a result of tests in our materials laboratory, we knew that the use of ultra-light 27g sail cloth could lead to warping of the sail and ribs at points of high loading and this means the wing ages more quickly. The answer to the problem was a new 32g light cloth. This combines the attributes of lightness with mechanical strength and durability.
Lightness and flying fun. Thanks to an approximately 1.5kg reduction of canopy weight, the MENTOR 3 light is even easier to launch than the already easy MENTOR 3. The flying characteristics of the MENTOR 3 light are comparable to those of the Mentor 3. The light is easy to turn, pulls into the centre of the thermal and always provides a feeling of safety in the air – even in turbulent conditions. The MENTOR 3 light offers ease and joy in flying.
Performance and honesty. The MENTOR 3 light is certified without a folding line, like all NOVA gliders. At NOVA we place great importance on honesty in glider manufacturing – the customer needs to know what they are buying. In this sense, the MENTOR 3 light is a glider which requires a degree of skill, but which is perfectly manageable for a practised pilot. The use of very flexible rods is limited to the leading edge; the A lines have not been set back and the aspect ratio remains very moderate at 5.43 (flat). The MENTOR 3 light is therefore a wing of exceptional performance, which at the same time offers a high degree of passive safety (in regard to its class).
The MENTOR 3 light is a paraglider with impressive performance which has - in the hands of an experienced pilot - a very manageable handling and extreme flight behaviour. Flying the MENTOR 3 light does require a degree of skill. Although certified as EN B, the MENTOR 3 light is not suitable for beginners and occasional pilots.
For queries about the suitability of the wing for you, your NOVA dealer will be happy to assist!
