The PRION 5 combines the globally tried and tested strengths of its predecessors - simple launch characteristics and good-natured handling - with improved roll damping and a new design. It can also boast of two innovations: the redesigned, even more comfortable NOVA Adjustable Handles and a colour gradient on the brake line that helps to correctly dose the brake travel.
Certification: EN/LTF A
The high-end EN A paraglider AONIC impresses with sportiness and performance, which is not usually found with EN A gliders - and is nevertheless suitable for instruction due to its high level of safety.
The fundamentally redesigned ION 6 (EN/LTF B) is the next generation of the popular ION series. The result: high passive safety, particularly precise handling and maximum performance to achieve personal XC goals.
Certification: EN/LTF B
Now the only reason not to fly is the weather, because the ION 6 Light (EN/LTF B) is infinitely versatile. Whether you plan to hike & fly, local soaring or even an ambitious cross-country flight - as soon as the sun shines, this paraglider puts you right at the front and top. A high degree of passive safety comes as standard.
For many years the MENTOR series has been synonymous with top performance in the EN B class. The MENTOR 6 continues this tradition, complementing the strengths of its predecessors with innovations that enhance its performance even more. Broaden your horizons with the master in its class.
At home in the B class and travelling the world - the MENTOR 6 Light in size S is a hefty 850 grams lighter than its big brother, but offers the same ingenious new developments like Zig-Zag 3D-Shaping, the innovative Mini-Rib Vector Tape, Double-B Splits and new risers. Since sometimes during Hike&Fly you might get choppy conditions, the MENTOR 6 Light also comes with a plus trim in comfort next to the high performance.
The PHANTOM offers the safety of a basic intermediate with the performance of a top-end wing. This has been made possible through probably the most complex construction ever used in a serial-production wing.
The SECTOR is a performance XC wing with comparatively low aspect ratio, with substantial, totally usable performance and excellent handling. Like the MENTOR in the standard class, the SECTOR is the mile-eater of the sports class.
SECTOR - for your perfect XC day!

The XENON (EN/LTF D) is an ultralight two-liner for experienced pilots. Excellent glide performance, simple handling and a high degree of stability guarantee extensive XC miles without the risk of fatigue.
Certification: EN/LTF D
Small, compact, dynamic - the BANTAM is the perfect miniwing for all mountaineers who prefer a flight with plenty of speed to a descent on foot. Only 1.65 kg (size 12) makes the BANTAM the lightest certified non-single-surface wing on the market (as of October 2019).
The DOUBLESKIN is the lightest paraglider in the world* with top and under surface (2.1 kg / size 17). It has a very small pack size and is a delight in the air thanks to better aerodynamics compared to a single-surface wing. With the DOUBLESKIN walking up is as enjoyable as flying and landing!
(*by same flat surface area, with EN-certification, with the Ultralight Riser and without taking single-skin wings into account. As: 06/19)
Like its predecessor, the BION 2 excites professional tandem pilots as well as enthusiastic recreational pilots who want to share their most beautiful moments. Take off, enjoy, land safely: the BION 2 is a reliable partner which takes its responsibility seriously. With maximum performance, it will never let you or your passenger down.
This year a dream will come true for Ken Oguma. He is one of the rookies hoping to show off their skills at the Red Bull X-Alps. Just like Théo de Blic (FRA) and Nicola Donini (ITA), he will be flying the NOVA X-Alps two-liner XENON and the ultralight ARTUS pod harness.
We recently introduced the ARTUS X-Alps harness. Weighing 1050 grams, aerodynamically optimised and with many clever details, this harness is the perfect partner for Red Bull X-Alps. The final design colours will be red and black.
Excellent pilots who have extraordinary stories to tell - the NOVA Pilots Team includes some of the best paragliders in the world. By and by we would like to introduce them to you. Last year NOVA awarded Antti Haltiamieli one of the Pilots of the Year 2020. In this article we take a look at him and Finland, which is probably highly underrated in…
Anyone who knows Wolfi Lechner personally, values him very much. Wolfi is best characterised as decent, fair, respectful of others and completely trustworthy. His heart is huge and his word is his bond. Since February 2021, Wolfi has been able to enjoy his newfound free time in retirement. We would like to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU…
Nicola Donini is one of the rookies in the Red Bull X-Alps 2021. But in spite of his young age, the 24-year-old is everything else than inexperienced - he is a highly accomplished acro pilot (five times Italian champion) as well as a superb comp pilot (Italian champion 2013, 2015, 2016 and 2017). In 2018, he came in 2nd in the PWC Superfinal –…
Really good ideas are often very simple - NOVA introduces a real innovation with the launch of its new PRION 5 training wing, the Brake Travel Indicator (BTI). This is a coloured coating of the brake lines with a colour gradient from green to yellow to red. Paragliding newcomers thus get a visual aid as to how far they are pulling the brake lines…
Recently we surprised by announcing the development of a new lightweight EN-D 2-liner, developed for the Red Bull X-Alps 2021, which will be flown by Théo de Blic and other athletes. Pilots who regularly fly at Stubaital (AUT) or Bassano (ITA) might have observed this project’s progress. The latest prototype brought NOVA another step forward and…
Harnesses for the Red Bull X-Alps should be one thing above all: VERY LIGHT. Our new harness ARTUS should be quite good in this respect. The weight of the current prototype is 1044 grams – including protector, footplate, rescue container and soft-links! For reasons of robustness, it could turn out to be slightly heavier for the actual…
Some of the worlds best cross-country pilots are in the NOVA Pilots Team - along with people like you & me. Together we have collected the 30 most important tips for successful cross-country flying. This is the last tip in our series, and it's definitely a good one.
Irene Weijers and Remie Denehy love to explore new places. Preferably by means of a big adventure. One thing threaded through their life story is… the mountains! Originally Remie came from Australia and Irene grew up in the mountains of Panama. Now they both live in the Zillertail in Austria. In September 2020 they were gripped by the travel bug…
