The performance all-rounder (EN/LTF B)

MENTOR 4 light – Nature is yours size XXS 55 - 85kg, excellent condition.

No mountain is too high, no valley too wide: ultralight, high performing and innovative, the MENTOR 4 light (from 3.25 kg) embodies our passion for light-weight wings. The paraglider is full of sophisticated features which reduce weight and set new finishing standards.


Impressively light. For a fully-fledged cross-country wing, at 3.25kg (XXS) the MENTOR 4 light is extraordinarily light. In comparison to its predecessor, the MENTOR 3 light, the wing weighs between 250g – 400g less (depending on size). In comparison to the MENTOR 4 it is approximately 1.5kg lighter.


One for all. The MENTOR 4 light is ideal for a number of uses: vol bivouac, hike & fly and travellers looking for a fully-fledged wing with little weight. The MENTOR 4 light is an expert in versatility.


Genuine performance. Performance without tricks: the MENTOR 4 light is based on the MENTOR 4, our successful XC wing. In cooperation with NOVA Team pilots including Bernhard Peßl and Chris Bessei, we have optimised the MENTOR concept and have added innovative finishing details like the single seam on the top sail.


The MENTOR 4 light is a paraglider with impressive performance which has a very manageable handling and extreme flight behaviour. Flying the MENTOR 4 light does require a level of skill. Although certified as EN B, the MENTOR 4 light is not suitable for beginners and occasional pilots.

For queries about the suitability of the wing for you, your NOVA dealer will be happy to assist!


Everything you need to know about the MENTOR 4 LIGHT:

  • The top sail is stitched using an innovative single seam. Advantages: less seam allowance, less weight.
  • The perforated profile and diagonal ribs have been analysed and optimised for strength. The consequence is less weight with equal durability.
  • Less weight, equal performance: the flying characteristics and performance are practically identical to the MENTOR 4.
  • Our innovative light-weight design (mainly made of high grade 27 gram fabric) makes the glider even easier to launch – a big advantage in difficult terrain, as you might encounter in alpine environments.

  • The MENTOR 4 light is made from lightweight materials which should be handled with care. Whilst the longevity of our gliders is of great importance to us and we use double-coated cloth, it is less durable than a wing made from conventional material.
