WHAT RIDERS SAY
"The Nova helps me keep pushing boundaries. Jumping. Riding Waves. Landing backflips and 360s." - Marley Franco
Maximum performance, minimum effort. No strings attached. Balanced and reactive, the Nova Wing generates more forward drive and upwind performance than anything you’ve ever ridden. At the heart of the Nova design is a super-stiff geometry for power and efficiency, enabling instant take-offs and a massive wind range. Intuitive transitions. Comfortable ergonomic handling. We’ve carefully positioned everything, from the XS Litevision panels to the low-profile handles, in the best place to trim the wing and make transitions safer and more intuitive. The tow-friendly wing shape with sweep and dihedral also helps keep it tracking when towing behind you on a wave. Whether your focus is on the flow of riding open ocean waves, carving or stomping out tricks, the Nova Wing will help you make the most your local conditions. Load up. Pump up. Ride longer.
GeoStrut controlled curvature exoskeleton
The controlled curvature of the exoskeleton increases stiffness and performance, creating a more stable centre profile that can still depower and produce less lift when you're towing the wing behind you riding waves. The concave side of the curve creates a stiffer frame, so there is less deflection and deformation in flight. The curved strut design also makes the wing more ergonomic and comfortable, bringing the forward handles closer to your body, and moving the rear handles away so you're in a more natural position when sheeted in.
Radial panel cuts
Radial cut panels at the end of the GeoStrut distribute large amounts of load across the canopy in defined load directions. The canopy is a woven fabric, least stable when loaded at 45 degrees to the thread line. Radial cut panels help align the stronger weave of the canopy to the stress pattern, creating a stronger, cleaner canopy with less external patching to prevent distortion and help keep the weight in check.
XLT Joint large diameter connection
The extra-large T-Joint is the structural frame joining the leading edge and strut in the shape of the letter T. The T-joint has a larger diameter for optimum stiffness, enabling a lightweight and direct connection to the canopy without deformation to keep the profile flying in its intended shape.
