The paramotor wing with Soft-Reflex (DGAC)

SPEEDMAX 2 - Pure Powered Performance

Impressive performance, a high level of stability, balanced handling: the SPEEDMAX 2 is aimed at pilots who are looking for an efficient paramotor wing that is fun to fly. The wing combines high speed with easy launch characteristics and forgiving flight behaviour. 

Development and Progress. The excellent performance, high degree of passive safety and the outstanding handling of the MENTOR series were the perfect prerequisites for the design of a paramotor wing. A soft-reflex profile, a trimmer system optimised for motorised flying and a flatter arc  guarantee paramotor flying pleasure of the highest level.

Stay up longer. The MENTOR series is synonymous with outstanding cross-country performance. The SPEEDMAX 2 profits from these characteristics: surprisingly little thrust is needed to keep the wing up. If the trimmers are released, the wing impresses with a high top speed whilst maintaining excellent directional stability.

Simply flying. Thanks to its good inflation characteristics, the SPEEDMAX 2 is easy to launch, even in nil-wind. In combination with the agile handling and the good flare attributes, this results in a wing that is very easy to manage. The combi-riser system with two attachment points proves our aspiration for comfort and simplicity.

Requirements

The SPEEDMAX 2 is a high-performance paramotor wing, which is not suitable for beginners. The wing is designed for recreational and advanced pilots.

For additional queries, your NOVA dealer will be happy to advise on the correct wing.

Soft-Reflex

A soft-reflex profile allows the pilot to adjust the profile setting of the wing. With the trimmers released, the reflexed trailing edge maintains the stability of the wing.

Closing the trimmers reduces the reflex in the trailing edge and the profile is equal to a standard paraglider. This brings advantages to the launch and extreme flight behaviour as well as the handling.

FAQ

The MENTOR is a conventional wing which has become a class of its own. MENTORs dominate the XC rankings and are famous for their exceptional performance and high passive safety. Many of the wing's characteristics are also applicable to motorised flying and therefore it was used as basis for the design of the SPEEDMAX.

A reflex profile increases the stability of the wing. In strong turbulence the wing can still collapse. Very pronounced reflex profiles generally exhibit dynamic reactions to collapses. Categorically stating that reflex profiles are safer is therefore incorrect.

The SPEEDMAX 2 is designed and certified for motorised flying. It is aimed at advanced, enthusiastic paramotor pilots. The ION and MENTOR are designed as performance paragliders which are excellent for free-flight and paramotoring.

The reflex profile of the SPEEDMAX 2 is not very pronounced, even with fully open trimmers. Pulling the brakes only marginally affects the stability.  Therefore adding tip steering, with all the added complexity, is not necessary.

 

Performance data depends heavily on the drag created by the pilot and this is linked to various factors like their seating position and harness type. We at NOVA never determine absolute performance data, instead we make comparisons with reference gliders. For this reason we do not publish performance data.

伞布材料、伞绳和所有其他部件,在被用于批量生产前,都会经过严格的测试。我们不仅测试伞布的耐久性(紫外线损伤或使用损耗引起的高透气性或低抗撕裂性),还测试其机械坚固性,例如拉伸。出于质量控制目的,我们定期在批量生产过程中进行抽样检查。

当新伞投入使用时,伞绳就开始受力。这会让伞绳发生小程度的拉伸和收缩。这与伞绳制造商或工艺质量无关——在工厂里,所有的NOVA伞翼都接受了伞形调平,并且在极小的偏差范围内进行了预拉伸。为了修正伞绳的拉伸或收缩,我们建议伞翼在10-20趟飞行之后就接受NTT伞形修正——最迟不超过一年。通常来说,在最初的10-20个使用小时后,伞绳的长度就保持不变了。为了充分发挥NTT伞形修正的作用,NOVA鼓励所有飞行员在10-20个飞行小时后为伞翼做检查。

干燥,不要收叠得太紧;如果可能的话,放置在温差变化小的空间——这些都让我们的伞翼感觉良好。千万不要把伞存放在潮湿环境,同时也要避免过热的环境,比如,你可能会把伞放在车里。切勿使用化学清洁剂和/或刷子来清除污垢。
