Nova Somnium (XC / Competition)


SOMNIUM – for cross-country pilots with dreams
The SOMNIUM offers everything cross-country pilots are looking for: comfort, an aerodynamic seating position with little drag and thanks to Hybrid Protection, an impressive degree of passive safety. At only 3.7 kilograms (size S), the walk to take-off is made a lot easier.

More safety
The SOMNIUM is fitted with an innovative Hybrid Protector. When the harness is taken out of the bag the foam begins to expand. Once in the air, the foam protection is augmented by an airbag. This cushion of air not only supports the pelvic area - but protects the whole back. In its class, the SOMNIUM offers a unique level of passive safety.

Less weight
Small packing size, little weight: due to its Hybrid Protection, the SOMNIUM can be packed small and at 3.7kg (size S) is extraordinarily light - without compromising on passive safety. The foam protector can be highly compressed and apart from the material, the airbag packs down to nothing. The SOMNIUM offers the complete package of performance, safety and little weight.

The SOMNIUM is primarily aimed at pilots who demand performance. It offers a high degree of passive safety combined with little weight and excellent aerodynamic characteristics. The high level of comfort and the pod enhance the feeling of comfort in the air.

Without Pod
The SOMNIUM can be flown without the pod. It can be removed with very little effort and replaced with a stirrup. This is a useful feature when flying in non-thermic conditions or ridge soaring.
