SUSI – Super simple, super safe in Size M (orange/light blue) New, 90-120kg weight range, Low enA.


Launch, fly, feel good: the SUSI (Super Simple) is a wing for those who want absolute simplicity. The SUSI has awesome 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."

    Less is more

    Nearly all our paragliders are based on the concept of a three-liner. Our idea of a three-liner with less line length allows us to construct wings with very good performance and a high degree of passive safety. The way we have conceptualised the lines has made it possible to manufacture wings which are collapse resistant; but when they do collapse, the collapsed area is generally less extensive. This significantly improves the wing's extreme flight behaviour.

    Compact and safe

    The aspect ratio of a glider is not the only factor in passive safety, but still a very important one. For this reason our wings have the aspect ratio they require. Our design motto is as much as necessary, as little as possible.

    Generally, a lower aspect ratio improves what is called the ‘compactness’ in technical jargon, which is the feeling of having a solid wing above you; that handles well and appears to have enough mechanical strength to withstand collapses.

    As a rule, higher aspect ratio leads to more demanding flying characteristics. After collapses there is the danger of cravats. Our goal is to produce less demanding wings.

    Keep it simple!

    Simplicity is our motto. NOVA paragliders can be stored in a concertina bag, but it is not essential (we haven't found that concertina bags prolong the life of the wing). If in a hurry, they can be stuffed into the inner bag (but please don’t store them like this in the long-term!).

    We use the conventional packing method for our own wings: lay the wing flat with lines on top and then fold towards the middle. Then fold, rather than roll, the glider towards the nose as this improves the comfort when carrying it in the glider bag. This is possible due to our conservative use of rods – they are only used in the profile nose.

    To us, paragliding means freedom. And freedom means not having to deal with complicated equipment. Keep it simple!
