North Nova 2021


Product Includes:
WING, WING LEASH, BAG, COMPRESSION STRAP, REPAIR KIT Power Up
Maximum performance, minimum effort. No strings attached. Balanced and reactive, the Nova Wing generates more forward drive and upwind performance than anything you've ever ridden. At the heart of the Nova design is a super-stiff geometry for power and efficiency, enabling instant take-offs and a massive wind range. Intuitive transitions. Comfortable ergonomic handling. We've carefully positioned everything, from the XS Litevision panels to the low-profile handles, in the best place to trim the wing and make transitions safer and more intuitive. The tow-friendly wing shape with sweep and dihedral also helps keep it tracking when towing behind you on a wave. Whether your focus is on the flow of riding open ocean waves, carving or stomping out tricks, the Nova Wing will help you make the most your local conditions. Load up. Pump up. Ride longer.



HIGHLIGHTS
  • GeoStrut controlled curvature exoskeleton
  • Radial panel cuts
  • XLT Joint large diameter connection

  • WHERE IT THRIVES
    On and off the water

    WHAT RIDERS SAY
    "Wow, it's just rock solid. It has more forward drive and upwind performance than anything I've ever ridden before." - Jesse Richman

    KEY FEATURES:


    GeoStrut controlled curvature exoskeleton
    The ergonomic curved strut increases stiffness and performance, creating a more stable centre profile that can still depower and produce less lift when you're towing the wing. The concave side of the curve creates a stiffer frame.

    Radial panel cuts
    Radial cut panels at the end of the GeoStrut distribute large amounts of load across the canopy in defined load directions. Radial cut panels help align the stronger weave of the canopy to the stress pattern to prevent distortion and help keep the weight in check.

    XLT Joint large diameter connection
    The extra-large T-Joint is the structural frame joining the leading edge and strut in the shape of the letter T. The T-joint has a larger diameter for optimum stiffness, enabling a lightweight and direct connection to the canopy without deformation.

    TECHNOLOGY:


    GeoStrut controlled curvature exoskeleton
    The controlled curvature of the exoskeleton increases stiffness and performance, creating a more stable centre profile that can still depower and produce less lift when you're towing the wing behind you riding waves. The concave side of the curve creates a stiffer frame, so there is less deflection and deformation in flight. The curved strut design also makes the wing more ergonomic and comfortable, bringing the forward handles closer to your body, and moving the rear handles away so you're in a more natural position when sheeted in.

    DETAILS:

    DUAL HYPERFLOW RAPID INFLATION /DEFLATION SYSTEM
    Double speed high volume single point inflation system with larger diameter inlet/outlet hose for rapid inflation and deflation. Bayonet style main inflation valve compatible with most pumps. No adapter needed. Two HyperFlow Inflation hoses on each side of the strut provide twice the rate of airflow on deflation and inflation. The two connections also help to lock the front of the bladder in place, providing support on both sides of the strut where the bladder is attached.

    TOW-FRIENDLY DEPOWER
    A soft knuckle-guard pad under the depower handle allows you to lock your knuckles up against the leading edge for extra stability when towing. A tow-friendly wing shape with sweep and dihedral also helps keep it tracking on the wave.

    GRIPLOCK HANDLES AND INTUITIVE Y-HANDLES
    Maintain a stiff and firm connection to your wing with ergonomic elliptical sandwich technology handles designed from a combination of multi-layer foam with reinforcement running through the centre. The internal reinforcement is sewn within the handle to the strut, creating a strong, wobble-free connection with just enough stiffness for the handle to maintain its shape. The elliptical/hexagonal foam shape is more twist-resistant to the webbing around it, and the softer webbing material is comfortable in your hands, has very little twist in the handle, but is still flexible enough to fold up and pack away easily. The low-profile handles are positioned in the prime location for centre of effort, and in the best place to trim the wing and make transitions more intuitive. The Y-handles allow you to move from kneeling to standing and perform transitions and tricks more intuitively.

    DACRON CANOPY REINFORCEMENT
    Chasing a stiffer rig, we moved to an ultra-strong Dacron canopy reinforcement that is different to that used in our kites and capable of high inflation pressure. We've also built stiffness into the design through the load distribution on the frame when it's in flight.

    DURALITE SCUFF GUARD
    Durable STPU scuff protection on the wing tips and seams. This is the same fabric used in the DuraLite seam protection on our North Kites.

    ON AND OFF-WATER PERFORMANCE
    The rise of winging is not limited to wing-foiling. Use the Nova to power up your skateboard, mountainboard, snowboard, skis or SUP.

    RADIAL PANEL CUTS
    Radial cut panels at the end of the GeoStrut distribute large amounts of load across the canopy in defined load directions. The canopy is a woven fabric, least stable when loaded at 45 degrees to the thread line. Radial cut panels help align the stronger weave of the canopy to the stress pattern, creating a stronger, cleaner canopy with less external patching to prevent distortion and help keep the weight in check.

    GEOSTRUT CONTROLLED CURVATURE EXOSKELETON
    The controlled curvature of the exoskeleton increases stiffness and performance, creating a more stable centre profile that can still depower and produce less lift when you're towing the wing behind you riding waves. The concave side of the curve creates a stiffer frame, so there is less deflection and deformation in flight. The curved strut design also makes the wing more ergonomic and comfortable, bringing the forward handles closer to your body, and moving the rear handles away so you're in a more natural position when sheeted in.

    KEVLAR STRUT CONNECTION
    A biaxial kevlar (aramid) fibre layer provides internal strength and reinforcement to the connection between strut and leading edge. It is bias cut, so it can flex around the curvature of the strut, with a tight and accurate fit.

    PREMIUM TEIJIN D2 TECHNOFORCE CANOPY
    High performance D2 Ripstop Fabric by Teijin. Premium high-density canopy material made in Japan, using high tenacity polyester yarn for lightness, high tearing strength and endurance. Teijin TechnoForce has the highest strength to weight ratio and longest durability in the industry.

    LITEVISION XS SKYLITE PANELS
    Safer XS skylite panels improve the rider's field of vision - allowing you to see what's downwind of you before transitions. The windows are positioned in just the right place for a safer riding experience, without adding unnecessary weight and complexity to the design.

    HARNESS LINE ATTACHMENT POINT
    The harness line attachment point is in just the right place. Our optional Adjustable Harness Line and Waist Leash accessories (sold separately) are easy to use and significantly reduce the load on your arms. This means more freedom, less muscle fatigue and consequently longer sessions.

    XLT JOINT LARGE DIAMETER CONNECTION
    The extra-large T-Joint is the structural frame joining the leading edge and strut in the shape of the letter T. The T-joint has a larger diameter for optimum stiffness, enabling a lightweight and direct connection to the canopy without deformation to keep the profile flying in its intended shape.
