The next milestone. The MENTOR 1, 2 and 3 was outstanding in its class. The Mentor 4 is the continuation of our mission to make the best wing in its class. In comparison to its predecessor, its performance is better by half a glide point. The Mentor 4 offers everything an ambitious cross-country pilot desires: impressive performance combined with a high degree of passive safety. Numerous competition title wins and records are proof of the success of the Mentor design.
Optimised in every way. The MENTOR 4 was designed in co-operation with the cross-country pilots in the NOVA Pilots Team. The experience of cross-country hounds fed the development. Our designers and test pilots converted the input, and their own experience, into solutions. The results are improved roll dampening - particularly in accelerated flight - even more precise handling and a further improvement in the climb rate. The higher speed of the MENTOR 4 improves its efficiency against headwind.
Lighter and even more durable. The MENTOR 4 is a weight-optimised wing: everything that is not exposed to a high mechanical load has been manufactured using moderately light material (Dominico 20D), except the profile nose which is made from abrasion resistant cloth. The result is a wing that is significantly lighter, but at the same time more durable, than its predecessor. A side effect of the reduced canopy weight is higher passive safety - and it is suitable for hike & fly.
