28 SKY SAILOR November | December 2023 Nova Bantam 2 – climb & fly miniwing With the Bantam 2, Nova presents the suc- cessor of the popular Bantam (1). It weighs only 1.6kg (size 12) and can be packed even smaller – thanks to the new Nitinol rods. Compared to its predecessor, it has gained stability in flight and glides much better when accelerated. The target groups remain the same: Dedicated para-mountaineers as well as participants in competitions such as the Red Bull Dolomitenmann. Nothing was changed in the basic design – a three-liner with 33 cells and very short lines. Nevertheless, the Bantam 2 is a completely new development. The glider comes in sizes 12 and 14, certified with LTF/EN D and EN C/LTF D respectively. Find out more at Nova EU New Products Nova Bantam 2 Photos Courtesy Nova
