The XS is your ultimate Big Air weapon, smashing new boundaries for height and hangtime.
Through continuous development, Version 4 is now faster and more precise allowing you to boost even higher. Created for the needs of demanding adrenalin junkies, the XS is as grunty as it gets, delivering raw power to the most extreme radical moves.
The sophisticated delta hybrid design has a high aspect ratio that gives an increased angle of attack to balance power with ease of handling. Its explosive lift is met with bombproof construction for adrenaline junkies wanting to hit full send. For V4 we optimised the load distribution further for stability and endurance, even over time.
Efficiency and hangtime are enhanced by a flattened arc making the XS intuitive to steer and extremely responsive. The direct turning and bar feedback allows for perfect timing, ready to take off and be rocketed to the moon.
The five-strut frame is light yet delivers stability in all situations and withstands the extreme forces in radical big air. Surprisingly versatile, freeriders will love how the XS can also handle freestyle and waves alike.
We put a lot of work into its aerodynamics to create the perfect sweep in the wingtips as well as the optimum canopy curve. In less favourable conditions, the XS has fantastic low-end performance that will assist progressing riders, and aids upwind travel to get you back in the zone fast.
The XS is designed with continuous feedback from our Team Riders the world over, whether chasing storms or breaking records at their home spot. They agree the new XS will catapult you with such forward momentum to generate powerful megaloops as well as extended hangtime for old-school tricks.
A must-have kite for radical riders, the new XS is Big Air’s best friend.
