Phantom Paraglider from Nova

At NOVA we asked ourselves what a low-end EN B would look like if it was constructed without being restricted by technical complexity. The result is the PHANTOM.

Description

Phantom Paraglider COLORSPHANTOM – a new era in paragliding

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.

Are wings with many cells difficult to fly?
No, this is a misguided belief. A higher number of cells increases glider weight, but by using lightweight materials and structurally analysed and optimised slots, we could compensate for this additional weight.

But performance wings with many cells are more challenging to fly than EN A gliders with few cells.
Correct, but this is due to the higher aspect ratio, rather than the increased number of cells. There is no direct correlation between the number of cells and how demanding a wing is to fly.

How does a large number of cells increase performance?
The more cells, the smoother the wing – which means less drag. A large number of cells also provides ultimate stability. This helps maintain performance even in turbulent air.

Didn’t NOVA produce a wing called the PHANTOM in the past?
Correct, in 1991. The similarity with the original PHANTOM is the increase in performance which was then, and now, impressive.

Availability

At NOVA, we worked hard on improving the availability of our gliders and as of now, all main models (PRION, ION, MENTOR and IBEX) are on stock in all sizes. Unfourtunately this will not be true for the PHANTOM: The production of the PHANTOM is extremely difficult and producing one PHANTOM takes as much time as producing 3 ION4. At the beginning, we will face delivery times of 3 months and more. However, we are confident, that we can scale up the production of the PHANTOM and achieve acceptable delivery times later this year.

The idea. At NOVA we asked ourselves what a low-end EN B would look like if it was constructed without being restricted by technical complexity. The result is the PHANTOM.

If you are unsure, your NOVA dealer will be happy to advise on any aspect of the PHANTOM!

Re-defining paragliders

The PHANTOM combines the best of both worlds:
the low piloting demands of the ION and the great performance of the TRITON.
