Nova SUSI – Super simple, super safe
Launch, fly, feel good: the SUSI (Super Simple) is a wing for those who wants absolute simplicity. Of all the Nova wings, the SUSI is the one with the best passive safety. This wing makes flying easy again.
Easy flying. The appeal of paragliding is its simplicity: take your wing out of the bag, sort the lines and you are off. The SUSI is based on this principle. With only 28 cells, it is our simplest wing and this is also mirrored in its flying characteristics: during launch the wing climbs quickly above the pilot without overshooting. Brake travel is long and the dampening is high. The Susi is simply a feel-good wing.
Simply safe. The basic development principle of the SUSI was to make the safest wing possible. Brake travel to the stall point is very long. During asymmetric collapses the wing recovers quickly and without turning severely. Thanks to the high dampening, the SUSI always conveys a feeling of safety in turbulent conditions.
Simply versatile. A high degree of passive safety and good performance do not have to be contradictory: the SUSI is also suitable for exploring cross-country flights. But the wings real strong point is when winding it up in a tight thermal – thanks to its low aspect ratio and its low useable speed, the SUSI is a master climber. With a little practise, the SUSI can leave a high performance wing behind.
The SUSI is a wing which offers maximum simplicity and therefore is generally suitable for all pilots. But we would like to emphasise that high passive safety cannot replace the need for sensible handling and active flying skills.
“The simplicity, dampening and stability will appeal to those who do not fly regularly and who have a low fear threshold. Despite this, the SUSI pilot must of course be sensible in their choice of flying conditions. These are people who consciously want to get away from the faster/higher/further hype; they are relaxed recreational pilots who want to have a good time in the air. Life is hard enough.” Karl Slzesak, DHV, Safety & Technical department
