Nova

Article number: VMPL61 Agile | Stable | Accessible Foil
The Nova is our new, unique depower foil kite. This one of a kind foil was designed to unite all the benefits of LEIs, like accessibility, ease of use and stability, with all the advantages of foils: better upwind, downwind, low wind performance and float.

When designing the Nova we had one goal in mind, to build a foil dedicated to speed up the learning curve of hydro foiling and that provides the best freeride feeling a foil can offer. It offers a stable and reliable riding experience in which you can focus on your board technique rather than on controlling your kite. If you want to spend more time above water but fear the foil, this is the kite for you.

Shape Memory Structure [SMS]
D and H ribs allow for minimal bridle points and optimal cell bulging, creating a firm shape for easy-relaunch , stability and playful riding.
Bridge Technology
The inside of the kite is designed especially to maximize dimensional stability as well as reduced need for bridle points. The tension straps running along the bottom skin are a technical detail borrowed from the Twinskin/Arc design, and ensures proper bulging of the bottom skin while keeping the tension in check. The clever D and H Ribs allow for evenly spaced out bridle points and create a very rigid frame.
Bridge Technology Tension Straps Tension Straps
Technical detail previously used in the Twinskin design and adapted to make the NOVA extraordinary. The tension straps ensure proper bulging to create a super solid wing that will behave as a tube kite..

Medium Aspect Ratio, high cell count
Highly stable, accessible performance
Medium Aspect Ratio, high cell count Medium Aspect Ratio, high cell count
The Nova’s medium Aspect Ratio and high cell count make for a very slick wing. The high number of cells ensure the wings dimensional stability and prevents deforming of the designed shape. The Medium Aspect ratio makes the kite highly stable and allows for ease of use in a large wind range.

High End Paraglider CANOPY
High end paraglider canopy with soft coating provided for top and bottom skin combined with a hard coating for the internal body. Creating a taugh yet lightweight canopy construction.
High End Paraglider CANOPY High End Paraglider CANOPY
To ensure a light weight yet tough construction, we’ve used 30D Ripstop Nylon throughout the entire wing. The top and bottom skin have a soft coating for optimal cell bulging, and the internal construction is made out of hard coated 30D ripstop for strength and rigidity.

Dynacore Bridle
Clear bridle plan
Dynacore Bridle Dynacore Bridle
To make the bridles easy to understand, each Dynacore bridle lines for the A, B, C and brake bridle rows come in a different colour. These different colours offer a clear overview of which line goes where, making it straightforward to set-up the kite or untangle if necessary. Dynacore is a sleeved Dyneema® line, which offers all the benefits of Dyneema® (minimal stretch, direct & responsive steering) but with additional protection.

One Line Relaunch
The water isn’t a challenge anymore
One Line Relaunch One Line Relaunch
The Nova is water re-launchable. It’s closed cell construction and coated UL fabrics keep water out and air in. It is recommended to practice this in shallow water before venturing deeper. Better still would be to keep it in the air at all times! Do not use in waves if you can’t maintain the kite in the air.

Ronstan® Orbit pulleys
A self-securing speed system
Ronstan® Orbit pulleys Ronstan® Orbit pulleys
The Nova’s speed system is constructed with 2×2 Ronstan® Orbit pulleys, these high quality pulleys weigh only 9 grams and allow for loads up to 250Kg. And since the line goes through the bearing, it will always stay connected even in the rare case the pulley gets damaged.

To accomplish maximum performance across the entire range of sizes we do not scale up or down. That is why each individual size has its very own design specifics, cell count and aspect ratio. This ensures optimal performance in each size as well as synergized handling, feel and balance across the range.

Reinforced bridle points

The bridle tabs are double stitched and reinforced with a Dacron patch for strength and durability, a Peter Lynn innovation which has proven its reliability time over time.
