Delta Bow Shape
The XR5 LW incorporates the concave trailing edge of a traditional bow kite and swept back wings of a delta kite. Our airfoil is engineered to rip upwind when underpowered, boost bigger on demand and get you planing first! You will see major changes in the XR5’s tip geometry and shape for even more control in the air and on the water.
5 Strut Frame
This kind of light wind muscle needs five struts. The rigid, five strut exoskeleton frame is a critical component in the LW’s design to stabilize the additional power created by the larger wingspans. The struts feature new geometry and improved segment stitching that yields better strength, stiffness, and connection to the canopy without increasing its mass.
Speed Pump System
Supersonic single point inflation. We improved the strut hose connection points to make air flow even faster into the struts. And when you haven’t kited in a few days, every second counts 🙂
