The Nano is a speed-riding wing for beginners.
Depending on the size chosen, it may also be suitable for an evolution of the practice for riders looking for a simple and reassuring wing.
It is available in 4 sizes: 9.5 m² – 11 m² – 12.5 m² – 14 m².
The 9.5 will be suitable for the training of very light and good skiers, or the most experienced pilots at the higher PTV wishing to ski.
The 11 will be suitable for light beginners and regular practitioners of medium to heavy weights.
The 12.5 is ideal for most beginners.
The 14 will be suitable for beginners to the high PTV.
The Nano has a small number of cells, large air intakes, and its line cone is quite long.
As on many speed wings, the lines are pulled out to facilitate the drying process (otherwise the core will spoil faster), so remember to check that there is no key!
The lifts are double: front/rear, which simplifies detangling, and like the Fluid, there are right/left markers and elastics on the brakes.
The trims on the front are difficult to handle in the air, but the travel at the controls being large, it is rare to need it (especially for beginners).
The handles are not very ergonomic but adjustable in size, which remains practical.
For a beginner wing, the Nano flies rather fast. She’s got a pretty good nose-down attitude, so she’s going to need some speed on takeoff, but with the brakes on, the handling will be good. It will be easy to put back in the slope.
It has a relatively weak roll, which makes it a little less playful but will make it a reassuring wing for beginners.
The resource is very good.
If you do a good preflight, the Nano inflates well through the center, it doesn’t pull too much in the slope and refocuses well.
It’s a wing that leaves a lot of room for skiing, even in big sizes, thanks to its quilt. It also has a good tolerance for low speeds.
On gentle slopes, it will be ideal for learning to ski under sail.
