Boundaries have been broken with the new XS as V2 catapults adrenaline junkies higher than ever before.
A more specific Angle of Attack has been developed in the span to balance power and handling, while a flatter arc increases efficiency and extends hangtime. Modified wingtips segmentation has moved the LE twist forward in the tips making turning and bar feedback more direct.
A shorter bridle trim has also reduced the bar pressure feel. A reduction in weight has been achieved overall and larger kites now also benefit from lighter bladder material. Durability has been optimized thanks to the redesigned frame structure between the inflatable parts and the ripstop.
Load transition has also subsequently improved the stability to make it our best version yet.
The new XS is a must-have in any radical freerider’s quiver.
