MENTOR 6 – Extend your Range

High-Tech for the EN B Class
For many years the MENTOR series has been synonymous with top performance in the EN B class.
The MENTOR 6 continues this tradition, complementing the strengths of its predecessors with innovations that enhance its performance even more. Broaden your horizons with the master in its class.

 

Inner values
What makes the MENTOR 6 so special is the increased accelerated glide, smooth trailing edge, new risers, durable but lightweight cloth, aerodynamically optimised 3D-shaped seams and an intuitive handling with less brake pressure. We decided not to place any limitations on our ambition and have added many detailed solutions which are completely new to the EN B class. A sports intermediate for cross-country and fun flying, the MENTOR 6 will help you to reach your goals faster – especially when accelerated.

Smart details

Often it is the small changes which have a big impact on the satisfaction we have with a paraglider. On the MENTOR 6 we used internal mini-rib seams and improved cloth to ensure the wing is more resilient and durable when it is in contact with the ground. Another added bonus are the Ronstan ball bearing pulleys on the speed-system, which reduce the effort when accelerating. Additionally, the differentiated A3 riser transmission ensures an optimised wing twist in accelerated flight which makes the wing more stable.

 

The MENTOR promise
Maintaining the same aspect ratio and high degree of passive safety, in comparison to the MENTOR 5 we have been able to improve the glide performance and the handling. We were able to achieve both with the use of innovative features such as Zig-Zag 3D-Shaping, the innovative Mini-Rib Vector Tape, Double-B Splits and newly designed risers. The MENTOR 6 handling is very intuitive, it has pleasantly light brake pressure and when circling in a thermal it is both teacher and a wing you can really crank in. The design work on this glider covered the minutest detail but we still recognised the bigger picture: a reworked curvature and a smooth trailing edge when braking give the MENTOR 6 the final polish.

 

Mini-Rib Vector Tape
Mini-ribs increase the number of cells in the rear wing area and thus provide an aerodynamically more
favourable trailing edge. In the MENTOR 6 there is an additional vector tape traversing through a hole in
each mini-rib. This tape reduces the crease that is created when braking. In this way both the climb rate
and handling are improved. Additionally, there is a brake gathering system on the trailing edge. This means
that the MENTOR 6 has a clean, smooth trailing edge even when brake is applied.

New risers

The MENTOR 6 risers are a redesign of the Speed- brake Riser. They ensure that the B-line area is also shortened when the C-line area is pulled during
accelerated flight. The advantage is that the when using C-steering, there is no performance-limiting crease between the B-line and C-line areas, which is otherwise typical in three-liners. The MENTOR 6 is delivered with these new risers, so there is no need to additionally install the Speedbrake Risers. The
new riser is practical and fits comfortably in your hand, whether you are ground handling or preparing to launch.

 

Ergonomic brake handles
We have developed new brake handles, and the MENTOR 6 is the first wing to be fitted with them. They have an ergonomic shape and are comfortable to use.

 

Pilot target group
The MENTOR 6 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 6 does require a level of skill. Although certified as EN B, the MENTOR 6 is not suitable for beginners and occasional pilots. But any pilot with the ambition to advance their sound flying knowledge to another level will find a perfect partner in the MENTOR 6. Particularly experienced cross-country pilots who like to fly at top speed for long flights will love the enhanced performance of this glider.
