Instead of one piece of fabric, these diagonal ribs are manufactured from various strips, which are directionally cut in accordance with their Ripstop threads. The manufacturing process involves more effort and precision, but they ensure a cleaner profile, which means more performance.
Very light but still durable: Light weight NOVA wings weigh little but are still robust enough to withstand the hard conditions of the mountains. The profiles are made out of durable cloth, so that this highly-stressed component does not deform - like it can with ultra-light material. This means we are able to guarantee consistent flying characteristics.
