Very forgiving and pure fun. It has an extremely low minimum speed and a very long max. brake travel. I never flew a wing that turns so flat and narrow (specially towards the rock walls of the Rofan). Also top landings are very easy. The perfect combination between good agility and turning and a perfect damping is unique.

Nova Syntax

The basic idea was to make a successor of the legendary X-act that combines the perfect damping (absorbability) and easiness of the X-act with a modern build up, techniques and materials. Easy turning with perfect damping. No hard collapses, very soft in all manoeuvres. 

Claim: it has to be pure and effective: no frippery, reduced to the essence. 

Improvements: faster in trim, higher max speed, even better safety (surging, collapses, min. speed), off course more performance. 

Main characteristics: 

Safety: We never had a wing with a bigger tolerance: You can change the trim massively, the tensions, suspensions, even the aerofoil the wing is still very safe! 

Handling: very forgiving and pure fun. It has an extremely low minimum speed and a very long max. brake travel. I never flew a wing that turns so flat and narrow (specially towards the rock walls of the Rofan). Also top landings are very easy. The perfect combination between good agility and turning and a perfect damping is unique. 

Performance: The real wolf in the sheep's clothing! You can fly it very radical in thermals, out climbing nearly everything when the thermal is narrow and tricky or you have to fly very small 8s near the relief. Gliding is surprisingly good. 

Technic: some new materials, some new technics. Because of the high safety level, we had time to optimise some new ideas and combine them with picked up old ones.

Nova Syntax 'Easy-Walking' version 

With the SYNTAX Easy-Walking, NOVA offers the proven SYNTAX as a weight-optimized version. The weight could be reduced by 15% (approx. 1kg) by a lighter cloth in the upper sail (40 gr/m²), as well as by other small changes of the raiser and the leading edge.  However, the main attention during the development process was focused to the everyday suitability, despite the weight reduction. 

This is the main difference between the Easy-Walking and superlight paragliders on the market, where considerable durability losses must be accepted.

The SYNTAX Easy-Walking is clearly an everyday paraglider. Therefore, NOVAs usual guaranteeing is valid to the full extent.

(That is 36-month guarantee on material, as well as the free repair service during the first year) 

It's understood, that the safe flight behaviour of the SYNTAX can also be enjoyed by the pilots of the Easy-Walking without any qualification. Our test pilots said, that the reactions of the Easy-Walking are even a little bit smoother than the reactions of the Standard-SYNTAX. The reason for this is the lower weight of the canopy. 

Of course, all dimensions of the SYNTAX Easy-Walking are DHV-approved (1-2).
