Nova introduce the Speedbrake Riser…
An end to creases: the innovative NOVA Speedbrake Riser
Decelerating the accelerator
The NOVA Speedbrake Riser is the first three-liner riser which permits the glider to be accelerated as well as decelerated. It brings an end to pulling the C-lines, which killed performance.
Admittedly, we are not and have never been fans of the C-handle, which allows dive and directional control. Pulling the C-lines on a three-liner results in a deep crease, which markedly affects performance.
We developed the NOVA Speedbrake Riser in conjunction with our team pilot Robert Schaller, an applied science student and enthusiastic cross-country pilot. The B and C risers are connected using a flexible strap. If the C-risers are pulled back, the B-risers are also reduced in length. The result is a perfect, crease-free deceleration.
The Speedbrake Riser provides new possibilities for performance-orientated XC-pilots!
We recommend the Speedbrake Riser for cross-country pilots. If you prefer relaxed recreational flying, hill soaring or frequent groundhandling we recommend the standard riser without the Speedbrake strap.

Nova Speedbrake Riser is available for some Nova Wings e.g. Ion, Phantom, Mentor, Sector, Triton.
