The Nemo 5 is the latest version of our classic fun paraglider with even better performance, increased lateral stability and good maneuverability. Perfect for free, winch or powered flight - always at the highest safety level. Its capabilities will satisfy most pilots for a long time after completion of their initial training, while preparing them for further development.
- the new internal structure is based on 3Y supports
- greater lateral stability
- thinner lines result in less drag
- new risers with ball-bearing pulleys
The changes in the new version of Nemo were aimed primarily at better in load distribution within the canopy.
By changing the curvature of the wing, we obtained greater lateral stability, while maintaining good maneuverability compared to other wings in this class.
For the main lines in A and B rows we use Dyneema lines. Thanks to their high bending resistance they conserve their strength longer than Technora ones, therefore can be thinner. The shrinkage effect of Dyneema has been minimized as these lines tend to be loaded the most. Thinner lines result in less drag which translates into better performance.
Design and purpose
Advanced software, combined with the design experience of Piotr Dudek, allowed to create a wing with excellent parameters, ideally suited to the needs of pilots learning to fly and continuing recreational flying. Nemo 5 is an EN A class paraglider with a modern design, good performance and high safety. Its operation is simple and the control is pleasant and effective. It is also designed for winching and even powered flying. Moto risers with a trimmer are suitable for powered flying.
The range of sizes is selected so that it is easy to complete a set of wings for the needs of flying schools.
All sizes have passed the certification procedures, receiving EN/LTF A category.
The EN and LTF certificates in ‘moto risers’ remain valid only when the trimmers are closed AND the trimmer loop is hooked on the main carabiner. In this way the risers stay fixed at their standard lengths and trimmer adjustment in flight is not possible.
When the trimmer straps become unlocked, making the trimmer adjustments possible, the canopy has an ULM (DGAC) flight attest.
The launch is pretty easy, with some practice it is not necessary to keep the risers up, as the canopy comes up on its own and waits for you in the nadir.
Nemo is a responsive and agile wing, smoothly reacting to all pilot’s actions. Steering is light and pleasant, with steering forces growing proportionally to brake input. Adding some weightshifting makes the turns faster and tighter.
- Three row canopy with rods (FET – FlexiEdge Technology)
- Inner reinforcements, structural rods and mini-ribs make sure that the aerofoil is precisely reproduced and stabilized in flight. Three-row rigging of reduced drag increases performance.
- Mini-ribs on the trailing edge make for slim canopy with minimal ballooning and improved airstream.
- CSG (Canopy Shape Guard)
- DOA (Dudek Optimized Airfoil)
Careful selection of the modern cloth and design ideas made sure the Nemo 4 will have great durability. All materials used come from numbered batches, and each production stage can be verified down to identification of individual worker and supervisor.
Main lines are coded with colours according to recent PMA recommendations. More about this initiative on the Association website.
Design solutions, technologies and other functionalities are listed below in the Technologies section.
SN - Shark-nose
Airtakes designed and executed in Shark-nose technology meaning specific, concave shape of the reinforced profile area at its leading edge (the name comes form the very shape, reminding shark’s nose).See more
DOA - Dudek Optimized Airfoil
Dudek Optimized Airfoil It incorporates all our experiences stemming form previous designs and as a special feature is optimized with dedicated engineering software.See more
CSG - Canopy Shape Guard
CSG – Canopy Shape Guard – is our unique system controlling canopy coherence. It is because of this system that our wings are equally tensioned, smooth, stable and… simply remarkable.See more
LR - Laser Technology
Capabilities of the laser cutter allow for serial cutting of complicated shape narrow elements in large numbers, their optimal placing in relation to structure of the textile and highest possible precision of cut.See more
FET - Flexi Edge Technology
The leading edge is closed to the airflow, and its precise shape is kept with laminated cloth reinforcements, incorporating synthetic rods. The rods make the leading edge stiffer and smoother, bringing improvements in many areas – from easier inflation, through stiffening the canopy in flight to improved general airflow.See more
ACS - Auto Cleaning Slots
Dedicated slots automatically removing dirt from the wing tips.See more
MR - Mini-Ribs
Mini ribs speak for themselves – they are additionally introduced in the trailing edge between main ribs. Their task is to decrease ballooning (expanding and deformation of the cells) in this vital area af the aerofoil.
Keeping the rear part in shape reduces the drag induced behind trailing edge, thus improving general airflow and increasing airspeed.See more
TR - Trimmers
A trimming system for additional angle of attack regulation. Used mainly in PPG wings.
This system features replaceable trim straps. After prolonged or intensive operation they need to be replaced, as they get damaged by buckle edges.
