High-Tech for the EN B Class

MENTOR 6 – Extend your Range

For many years the MENTOR series has been synonymous with top performance in the EN B class. The MENTOR 6 continues this tradition, complementing the strengths of its predecessors with innovations that enhance its performance even more. Broaden your horizons with the master in its class.

Inner values. What makes the MENTOR 6 so special is the increased accelerated glide, smooth trailing edge, new risers, durable but lightweight cloth, aerodynamically optimised 3D-shaped seams and an intuitive handling with less brake pressure. We decided not to place any limitations on our ambition and have added many detailed solutions which are completely new to the EN B class. A sports intermediate for cross-country and fun flying, the MENTOR 6 will help you to reach your goals faster – especially when accelerated. The Thermik magazine puts it this way in its test report: “Thanks to its extraordinary feedback in upper speed-range, the wing virtually invites 8- to 10-hour XC-flights, while the pilot pushes the bar uncompromisingly and achieves very high average speed – the ultimate XC-machine!

The MENTOR promise. Maintaining the same aspect ratio and high degree of passive safety, in comparison to the MENTOR 5 we have been able to improve the glide performance and the handling. We were able to achieve both with the use of innovative features such as Zig-Zag 3D-Shaping, the innovative Mini-Rib Vector Tape, Double-B Splits and newly designed risers. The MENTOR 6 handling is very intuitive, it has pleasantly light brake pressure and when circling in a thermal it is both teacher and a wing you can really crank in. The design work on this glider covered the minutest detail but we still recognised the bigger picture: a reworked curvature and a smooth trailing edge when braking give the MENTOR 6 the final polish.

 

Pilot Target Group

The MENTOR 6 is a paraglider with impressive performance which has – in the hands of an experienced pilot – a very manageable handling and extreme flight behaviour. Flying the MENTOR 6 does require a level of skill. Although certified as EN B, the MENTOR 6 is not suitable for beginners and occasional pilots. But any pilot with the ambition to advance their sound flying knowledge to another level will find a perfect partner in the MENTOR 6. Particularly experienced cross-country pilots who like to fly at top speed for long flights will love the enhanced performance of this glider.

S+W Verdict:

“The class leading high end EN B! The Mentor has always been good, but the latest version is brilliant! Get in touch if you fancy a go, or to chat about trading in your existing wing, or demoing other, similar wings.”
