NOVA PENTAGON – The five-sided rescue parachute with pendular damping.
The five-sided PENTAGON rescue parachute from NOVA is a highly innovative design. It opens exceptionally fast, descends very slowly and convinces with its marked pendular damping - even if the paraglider is still attached. NOVA uses permanently water-resistant cloth, so that it can be confidently deployed during an SIV course. The PENTAGON has been constructed in a way that potential packing errors have been minimised. Flow simulations of different designs complemented intensive practical testing. The PENTAGON is one of the safest rescue parachutes on the market.
