The Peter Lynn Nova V2 is a new, unique depower foil kite. This one of a kind foil was designed to unite all the benefits of LEIs, like accessibility, ease of use and stability, with all the advantages of foils: better upwind, downwind, low wind performance and float.
The new Nova has been redefined and offers a lot more than you could see at first sight. The Dynamic profile of the Nova ensures the perfect combination between stability and ease of use, while creating a superfast and agile foil with a massive depower range. The new Nova is made of Skytex 32 making it a very lightweight wing that flies even in the lightest breeze. Developed for foil riders that want maximum stability with only little wind, while progressing in speed and racing.
The Nova doesn’t twist or has its tips fold in. It is highly stable yet agile, and it fills quickly with air due to a smart 4 intake system. Designed with relatively high cells and a balanced cell count, has resulted in a very stiff foil which retains its shape even under turbulent circumstances. Because foil kites like the Nova are highly efficient and deliver much more power per size than LEI’s, you can fly a much smaller wing than you might expect in any given wind speed.
The float on the Nova is so good you could even use the kite to ride some waves whilst the kite happily drifts along. Riding a wave on a foil board is something close to extraordinary!
The Nova’s innovative Dynamic profile makes the kite adjustable across its entire depower reach. Depowering the Nova creates a full reflex profile for more stability and control. Powering the Nova will release something spectacular resulting in a superfast and agile wing.
Every size has been developed individually to maximize performance. Each size comes with a different Aspect Ratio, Cell count and profile. This year PLKB also introduce the 15 and 18 metre ‘SuperNova’ sizes. These performance wings were developed with more race behavior for foil- and buggy riders in mind.
Made of durable Skytex 32 and with a weight starting at 1.11 kg, it gets you up on the water with only a few knots. The one-way inlets were redesigned to create an even more airtight foil that makes water relaunches effortless, even in low wind conditions.
The new Nova V2 is such a super versatile kite that you can easily fly as an Lei kite while enjoying all benefits of a foil kite at the same time; small packing, large wind range, huge big air and a competitive top speed.
The Nova has been thoroughly tested, in many different conditions; on Twin-tips, by Foil riders, Buggy riders and even on ski’s in a 2000km endurance trip in the Artic circle by Eric Leegwater, all to make sure that you get the best.
The Peter Lynn Nova is just at home on the land or snow as it is on the water!
Low Sideways Pull:
To get up on a hydrofoil it is important that the kite doesn’t generate too much sideways pull. Low sideways pull allows you to focus on holding your balance rather than dealing with the power of the kite.!
Foil Specific Performance:
Even though foil kites offer many advantages like low wind performance or upwind ability, many LEI riders consider foilkites to be difficult to use. This is why the Nova is special.
Highly Stable Rigid Wing:
The Nova’s high cell count and internal construction makes for a firm wing that doesn’t deform or has its tips fold in, this makes the kite highly reliable, and the bridle is tuned to offer maximum stability.
The Nova delivers much more power than an average LEI, making you able to use a small size in low wind.
Fills Fast with Internal Pressure:
The Nova’s 4 inlets have been placed in such a way that air gets in easily and the internal structure allows this air to move freely inside the kite to speed up inflation.
At the same time, the valves inside the wing prevent air from getting out.
