It’s time to think BIG and the new XS will rocket you to the moon breaking new boundaries in Big Air. Created for the needs of adrenalin junkies wanting a weapon to hit full send, the XS delivers raw power to the most extreme radical moves. The XS is as grunty as it gets due to the sophisticated delta hybrid design with a high aspect ratio. The new span specifics also deliver an increased massive Angle of Attack balancing the power and handling. Efficiency and hangtime have been enhanced by a flatter arc, and riders will also notice more direct turning and bar feedback, as well as a reduced bar pressure feel.  Intuitive to steer and extremely responsive, you’ll perfect your timing for takeoff ready to fly. This kite is a tool for hardcore riders and Arthur Guillebert’s weapon of choice chasing storms.  Commit to pulling your backhand, sheet in, pop, and you are catapulted into the sky with a forward momentum that delivers the most powerful megaloops.

Performance Features:
  • Delta hybrid five-strut design for a serious Big Air adrenaline boost
  • Explosive lift and extra long hangtime
  • Massive grunt in all wind conditions for freeride versatility
  • Bomb proof construction provides ultra durability with maximum stability
  • Rapid yet controllable flight characteristics with direct feedback

Design Considerations:

Thanks to the extended hang time the XS is perfect for old school hooked-in tricks, but allows for easy upwind travel to get you back in the zone fast. In less than perfect conditions, the XS has fantastic low-end performance with a wide sweet spot that comes in handy and will also assist progressing riders. We put a lot of work into the aerodynamics, creating the perfect sweep of wingtips as well as canopy curve. The new 2 step force transition on the tips also ensures harmonic power development. The ultra-sturdy five-strut frame is now lighter yet withstands the extreme forces of radical big airs and delivers stability in all situations. Surprisingly versatile, our team riders were blown away by its performance in other disciplines and freeriders will love how the XS can also handle freestyle and waves alike.

The new XS is Big Air’s best friend and a must-have in any radical freerider’s quiver.
