NOVA SECTOR (EN-C)
Novan pitkään odotettu C-luokan siipi on vihdoin saapunut!
Nova Sector on erittäin maltillisella (5,95) sivusuhteella ja onkin siten helppo ja turvallinen lentää. Lennettävyys on hyvin "Mentormainen", mutta ohjaus on hieman kevyempi, lyhyempi ja tarkempi. Kun haluat siirtyä ensimmäiseen C-luokan siipeen Sector on sinun valintasi!
Paino on (M-koossa vain 4,4kg) jota voi jo verrata kevytsiipien painoon, mutta mitään radikaaleja kevennyksiä ei ole tehty joten siipi kestää siinä missä painavammat kilpailijatkin.

SECTOR – For Your Perfect Day
The SECTOR is a performance XC wing with comparatively low aspect ratio, with substantial, totally usable performance and excellent handling. Like the MENTOR in the standard class, the SECTOR is the mile-eater of the sports class.
SECTOR - for your perfect XC day!
The inspiration - the mile-eaters of the sports class. For nearly a decade, the MENTOR has been the benchmark in LTF/EN B cross-country wings and it wins everything that can be won. With the new SECTOR we have taken the same approach - but in the sports class (EN C). The low aspect-ratio (5.92) is the basis for a high level of passive safety and confidence-inspiring flying characteristics. Coupled with a precise handling, the SECTOR offers an impressively high level of totally usable performance.
Performance comparison. Years ago we stopped detailing absolute performance figures. Instead, we make comparisons with well-established models. Comparative flights with the MENTOR 5 showed 0.7 to 0.8 better glide points - with a very flat polar curve and high top-speed. It also clearly tops the TRITON 2. The SECTOR needs not be afraid of any comparison.
Thermal flying - balanced and uncomplicated.
Immediately after take off the pilot will feel a solid wing with a high comfort factor. And this happy feeling continues when initiating a turn. Short brake travel with very moderate pressure results in direct and precise responses to brake inputs. Whether the thermals are large and weak or small and strong, the SECTOR will climb in anything. It will master all turns and angles of bank. Its main strengths are balance and simplicity.
Totally usable performance – it's a confidence thing. What is the use of having great performance in the morning, when there is no wind, if the wing is tossed about in turbulent air on a mega XC day? Pitch, roll, yaw or a continually deforming wing reduce the performance. The advantage of the SECTOR is the totally usable performance - like on the MENTOR. Even in strong thermals it stays solid. The SECTOR also inherited the MENTOR's stability at full-speed. The SECTOR gives cross-country pilots real confidence - a really important prerequisite for long-distance flights.
In terms of the technical data, the SECTOR is nearly exactly positioned between the MENTOR 5 and the TRITON 2.
The same applies to the pilot target group. Any pilot who has a handle on their MENTOR and wishes to have more performance and that "EN C feeling" in handling will love the SECTOR. In comparison to the TRITON 2, clearly the SECTOR requires less active flying - but this does not change the fact that this is a sports class wing.
