Nova ION 4 (Progression Class)

According to Nova, the ION 4 has a better glide than the MENTOR 3. From 3.95 kg (XXS) it is feather light and offers impressive handling and climb performance.

The ION 4 offers a high degree of passive safety and is suitable for a wide spectrum of pilots but is aimed at gifted beginners and pilots with developing cross-country ambitions.

A refined canopy shape and tapered wing tips underpin the design optimisation. The light weight makes the ION 4 simple to launch and improves its extreme flight behaviour.

Syride instruments now all V3

Unlike most square designs, the Companion SQR is not trimmed to glide in flight. The standard Companion SQR is one of the lightest reserve parachutes on the market. An ultra-light version is under development.
