The ultimate Big Air weapon

Created for the needs of demanding adrenalin junkies, the XS is the ultimate Big Air weapon that’s fast and precise and aims for the moon. Breaking boundaries for height and hangtime the XS has a direct feel for perfect timing, ready to take off and smash your limits.

Modified angle of attack

The XS is as grunty as it gets, delivering raw power to the most extreme radical moves. For V5 the maximum loop speed has been developed, achieved through a modified arc and angle of attack. This sophisticated delta hybrid design has a high aspect ratio that balances power with ease of handling, allowing adrenaline junkies of all levels to hit full send.

Highly efficient

Efficiency and hangtime are enhanced by a flattened arc, making the XS intuitive to steer and extremely responsive. The XS has the perfect sweep in the wingtips as well as the optimum canopy curve to achieve fantastic low-end performance. This assists progressing riders and aids upwind travel to get you back in the zone fast, even in less favourable conditions.

Bombproof construction

The light five-strut frame delivers stability in all situations and withstands the extreme forces in radical Big Air. Its explosive lift is met with bombproof construction as the load distribution offers enhanced stability and endurance, even over time.

New for V5

In addition to the modified angle of attack, the XS V5 has improved canopy tension for a cleaner profile, and new panel cuts in the canopy distribute force more efficiently. The bar pressure has been reduced and offers more balance, and a new 3D bridle deflector reduces bridle catch protecting the kite from inverting.

Who is it for?

A must-have kite for radical riders, the XS V5 is Big Air’s best friend. Celebrated by our Team Riders the world over, the XS has been put to the test by storm chasers and shown surprising versatility in handling freestyle and waves alike. For those that want to be catapulted with forward momentum for powerful megaloops or extended hangtime, the XS is the rocketship of choice.
