The ultimate cross-country machine (EN C)

TRITON 2 – performance with a genuine character

A wing that soars above its class: the new TRITON 2 (EN C) In terms of pilot requirements the TRITON is similar to the old DHV 2-3 class – and at the same time it has the performance of a fully-fledged high-end glider. This makes the TRITON 2 the ultimate cross-country flying machine.

The NOVA TRITON 2 is a breath of fresh air in the serial performance glider class, which follows in the tradition of former DHV 2/3 wings. On the one hand, theTRITON  2 offers impressively good performance and therefore the potential for league, competition and ambitious XC flights; on the other hand, the flying characteristics of the wing are completely manageable for an experienced pilot. So it is exactly what discerning pilots want: the ultimate flying machine, which combines performance with certification-appropriate safety.

Thanks to the selected moderate aspect ratio (6.4 flat) the TRITON 2 offers the whole range of flying characteristics: the wing is agile, brake pressure is low and it invites you to play above the landing field after completing a satisfying XC flight. The TRITON 2 therefore offers everything a keen cross-country pilot wants: excellent performance, good certification-appropriate passive safety, a wing that is greedy for the best lift in thermals, very sensitive brakes and a glider that offers an exceptionally high fun factor.

Triton 2 data

Technologically ahead. The Triton 2 is the result of NOVA’s 25 years experience in designing paragliders. Its flying behaviour was predicted using analytical tools and airflow simulations. Inside the wing, innovative needle-eye ribs distribute the tension across the span of up to five cells at a time. The needle-eye ribs are each made out of one piece of material and traverse through slots in the profile ribs. This results in a more precise shape than is achieved in a conventional four or five piece rib, which is implemented using multiple-piece diagonal ribs. 3D-Shaping and optimised position and size of the cell openings enhance the performance potential of the Triton 2.

Genuine performance. No folding line. No cross-line. No other tricks were used. The Triton 2 is a performance three-liner suited to a skilled and experienced pilot. And they will get what they expect: a wing with exceptional performance which has been fully tested in all possible collapse scenarios. The leading edge of the Triton 2 is reinforced with extremely flexible rods, but these are short and end just after the A area. In comparison to the Triton 1, the A area was not set back. For this reason, collapses are generally less extensive – we found this both during induced asymmetric collapses using the A-riser, as well as in spontaneous collapses in turbulent air. With a moderate aspect ratio of 6.4 (flat) the Triton 2 continues the tradition of its predecessors, the Tycoon and Triton 1.

Innovative and progressive. With its aspect ratio, wing area and its passive safety features, the Triton 2 is a traditional glider, but simultaneously it comes with a bundle of innovations. One of these is the mix of materials: to improve its extreme flight behaviour, we used a very light but durable material (32 g/m2), which also features in the Mentor 3 light. The leading edge is fitted with an improved Nova air scoop which increases the internal wing pressure – especially in accelerated flight. The Triton 2 therefore profits from the know-how that we gained from developing the Ion and Mentor series.

Target group

The TRITON 2 is a high performance wing for an experienced and current pilot. The wing distinguishes itself by impressive performance combined with (for its class) very manageable extreme flight behaviour. In terms of pilot requirements, the TRITON 2 is the same as its predecessor, the TRITON 1.

Extended weight range

In sizes S, M and L, the TRITON 2 has an extended weight range. In size M we recommend a weight range from 90 to 107kg, although the wing is certified up to 115kg. In size L, the optimal allup weight is 100 to 120kg, but it can be flown up to 130kg within its certified weight range.

For crosscountry flying we advise staying within the recommend weight range. The extended range is for those to whom high speed is the primary consideration. The TRITON 2 displays its best flight characteristics in the upper half of the optimal weight range.

FAQ

简单是我们的座右铭。我们的伞翼可以用长条袋来收叠,但这并不是必需的。原则上,我们所有的伞翼都可以被塞进伞包里。叠伞时,建议不要不必要地弯折结构支撑杆。需要把伞长时间存放不用时,尤其要注意这一点。此外,我们建议您小心呵护和使用您的爱伞。

刹车绳是伞翼认证的组成部分——更改刹车绳,会影响伞的飞行特点和极端飞行情况下的反应。因此,我们强烈建议不要对刹车系统进行任何修改。在实际制动作用发生前,刹车绳有充足的行程是很重要的。这使得在使用加速系统时,伞翼不会自动刹车。此外,过短的刹车会对性能产生影响,甚至对意外发生时的恢复产生影响,比如在遇到塌陷时,或当伞翼进入降落伞失速时。

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。
