WILD FREERIDE

THE ULTIMATE FREERIDE WING

     

 

The X-Lite is an original concept: a speedriding wing dedicated to wild ski-touring sessions and mountain adventures.

Developed from the X-Ride freeride wing, the X-Lite is an ultra-light and ultra-compact version that will easily find its own space inside your backpack.


The X-Lite weighs 1.35 kg in size #8; up to 1.65 kg in size #10. Great care has been taken with materials and construction methods to keep the weight down while remaining strong. The lightness is also reflected in the handling and rideability of the X-Lite.

If wild tracks are the way you ride, the X-lite is your toy!

 TECHNICAL DATA

Risers

2 riser options:

- 3 risers A/B/C + 8 cm trimmers  | - 2 risers + 4 cm S.A.S* + 4 cm trimmers

Trimmers

Trimmers are located on the back of the riser, and are adjustable in flight.

Fabric

We use the "Skytex #27" from Porcher Sport, manufactured less than 2 hours drive from our workshop. We are the first to use this fabric on mini-wings.

PLASTIC REINFORCEMENT 

 

Plastic reinforcement for improved durability. They replace the Mylar which creases too easily. This reinforcement is an ideal thickness and hardness for the practice of speedriding.

Markers

Markers on the centre of the canopy on the leading and trailing edges, to make launch preparation and ground handling easier.

LINES

Cousin Ultimate lines, for easier handling and preparation.

S.A.S

The NEO Steep Active System, allows direct pilot input for steep dives and calculated arc recoveries. It allows the pilot to manoeuvre on steep terrain, and to fly straighter freeride lines. The S.A.S is super efficient but more demanding; it is needed to anticipate the shape of the slope in advance.
