NOVA MENTOR 5 LIGHT
Certification: EN/LTF B
The benchmark of cross-country, hike and fly and vol-biv wings.
The weight reduction for each size of MENTOR 5 LIGHT is approximately 25%. The lightweight version is definitely worth it for pilots who care about the weight of their wing. NOVA would like to emphasise that their lightweight wings are not constructed by pushing the limits of what is possible. MENTOR 5 LIGHT comes with NOVA's comprehensive guarantees. These gliders are suitable for everyday flying. No special care is needed for MENTOR 5 LIGHT which is the reason why NOVA doesn't use "Spaghetti-straps", instead a proper, but slim, risers have been used for MENTOR 5 LIGHT. NOVA doesn't compromise on performance or handling.
MENTOR 5 – Flying beyond boundaries. More performance, precise handling and a reassuring feeling in the air: the MENTOR 5 is the logical progression of the master of its class. Its high performance is more accessible and usable for progressing pilots. The MENTOR 5 exceeds boundaries.
The Benchmark. For many years the MENTOR has been setting the standard for XC-intermediate wings. It combines impressive performance with a high degree of passive safety and it encourages you to exceed your boundaries. Using strength analysis optimisation and flow simulation, we have succeeded in elevating the MENTOR 5 to a new performance level.
Relaxed Sportiness. The MENTOR 5 shows a marked performance increase on its predecessor. A slightly reduced trim speed leads to reduced sink and comfortable brake pressure, while the top speed remains consistently high. The handling distinguishes itself with its agility and precision. This permits the wing to simply centre in the thermal and take every climb.
Simply intuitive. Pilots should concentrate on what gives them pleasure: the flying. A clever mixture of materials has made the wing lighter, more manageable and more durable. At the most important points, the MENTOR 5 has been fitted with sheathed lines. As a consequence, the lines basically sort themselves. Launching is simple. And in flight, the MENTOR 5 helps you to find the right line.
Requirements. The MENTOR 5 is a paraglider with impressive performance which has - in the hands of an experienced pilot - a very manageable handling and extreme flight behaviour. Flying the MENTOR 5 does require a degree of skill. Although certified as EN B, the MENTOR 5 is not suitable for beginners and occasional pilots.
Impressions. "I flew a 240km flat triangle with an average speed of 30 km/h with the MENTOR 5. Unbelievable! This is the best MENTOR ever. I love this wing!"

Speedbrake Riser. The NOVA Speedbrake Riser is the first three-liner riser which permits the glider to be accelerated as well as decelerated. It brings an end to pulling the C-lines, which killed performance. We recommend the Speedbrake Riser for cross-country pilots. If you prefer relaxed recreational flying, hill soaring or frequent groundhandling we recommend the standard riser without the Speedbrake strap. For an additional 60 euro (plus local rate VAT), we can offer the MENTOR 5 fitted with the Speedbrake Riser. This offer is only valid for new wing purchases which are not yet delivered to the customer.
