Concept and positioning
Like all our lightweight gliders, the MENTOR 6 Light is largely the same as the normal version, but it is made from lighter cloth and we have slimmed down its internal construction. We also trim it a bit more for comfort. Important: lightweight at NOVA always means full suitability for everyday use and a full warranty.
New Zig-Zag 3D-Shaping for even fewer creases on the leading edge • Innovative Mini-Rib Vector Tape: this tape traverses through a hole in each mini-rib along the trailing edge of the uppersurface.
This means better profile shape and improved handling. • Double-B splits improve profile shape, increase the structural strength of the cells and secure the wing in the case of turbulence. • Newly designed riser with “integrated Speedbrake Riser”. The wing is only available with this version of the riser. • Differentiated A3-riser transmission ensures an optimised wing twist in accelerated flight which makes the wing more stable. • Internal mini-rib seams. • Ronstan ball bearing pulleys on the speed-system to reduce the effort when accelerating. • Durable mix of different cloths (Skytex 27 C1 and C2). • Optimised curvature, improved profile.
Versatility • Suitable for everyday use thanks to smart lightweight construction • Comprehensive NOVA warranty package • Top in its category for actually usable performance (especially accelerated) • The MENTOR 6 Light was deliberately designed not to push the EN B classification to the limit – which means higher passive safety • Little sink in turns/good climb rate • Uncomplicated, intuitive handling • Agile and precise
MENTOR 6 Light – Less weight, zero limits
NOVA introduces the MENTOR 6 Light - the lightweight version of the MENTOR 6. It can be packed significantly smaller and weighs much less than the standard version (4.2 kg in comparison to 5.05 kg in size S).
Nevertheless, the Light is perfect for everyday use with normal risers, and all lines, except the gallery lines, are sheathed. NOVA therefore provides the full warranty package (3 + 1 years). Naturally it comes with all the innovative technologies that ensure more performance and flying pleasure: Zig-Zag 3D-Shaping, Mini-Rib Vector Tape, Double B splits as well as the new risers. The MENTOR 6 Light is suitable for cross-country, hike & fly, vol biv, travelling with a paraglider - or just
for pilots who like to make light work of flying.
Hike & fly • Vol biv • Ambitious EN B cross-country pilots • Pilots wishing to step down from EN C or EN D • Recreational pilots• Pilots looking for a lightweight, performance wing for all occasions • Travelling with your wing
