The NOVA PRIMAX is a basic wing certified with class 1 for a huge pilot's target group: from the beginner to the experienced comfort oriented pilot. The PRIMAX offers a synthesis of very good pitch and roll damping with dynamic handling. It's thermalling performance is outstanding in that class, as well as it's safety level sets the new reference.
The NOVA PRIMAX inspires with it's simple efficiency and easy handling on the training hill as well as with it's safety and comfort even in rough conditions.
Even in rough turbulences the pilot feels safe and comfortable like in a soft sofa. Never ever before, paragliding was that safe and relaxing.

Nova Primax > Development Story
 
We're very proud of a premiere: First time in NOVA history we are able to present you a new wing, already having certified it in 5 sizes!
 
Even DHV 1 is the hardest certification class, our development team was able to have the PRIMAX XXS, XS, S, M and L successfully tested by the DHV test pilots. Even the XXS (19sqm) passed the DHV test flight successfully without any problem!
 
Based on the SYNTAX, the PRIMAX is even safer: even better damping around all axes, even more brake travel, even softer reactions in all manoeuvres.
 
It's safety is unbelievable, which made it very easy to pass all certification test flights for all sizes in such a short time. The concept is very forgiving: For the XXS it was for example not necessary to change a single line length from the Computer calculated prototype! Only the brakes were adapted. So the optimal trim was already there: no loss in performance, comfort or handling. No compromises, no work for our test pilots. :-)
 
To develop the PRIMAX was the easiest job we ever did: after we decided to make a DHV 1 wing out of the SYNTAX, the very first prototype already worked perfectly. So we had time to do some aging simulation: we washed a PRIMAX wing for hours in a big US army washing machine to be sure that it will last long in even the hardest conditions (more details and pics later). As expected: the famous Gelvenor cloth was undestroyable!
 
And the best of all: it's real funny to fly! Even having long brake travel, the wing reacts quite direct to brake inputs. Wingovers are easy, the performance and handling in thermals are great.

Nova Primax > Safety

Like the SYNTAX, it doesn't spiral with more than 15m/sec without special input.

All spirals are exiting very soon. The roll damping is perfect.
 
It's hard to fly a negative: it lasts a while until it begins to turn negative with full brake pulled. When you just release the brake a little, the wing begins turning positive again!
 
The collapses are very soft, reopening fast but smooth. Very little turning, very little surging.

Nova Primax > Technical Changes

The PRIMAX has the following changes over the PHERON...

  • Very different canopy construction: diagonal ribs: very few attachments, very few lines: less drag, better performance
  • Different airfoils (based on the Syntax): very soft collapsing, extremely good low speed behaviour - more aggressive sail tensions: handling, wing rigidity
  • Canopy curve, line length: handling, better roll stability

Custom Colours for Nova Paragliders

It is possible to have your Nova paraglider made with Custom Colours, but the colour layout has to be based on the gliders standard design (pattern), and colours can only be chosen from the colours available in the materials which the glider is made from. Delivery time 6-8 weeks.

Once you have decided which Custom Colours you want, remember to make a note of this and include these details with your order.
