hello to the foiler’s foil kite. Not that kind of foil, but a serious
LEI (Leading Edge Inflatable) foil kite that won’t hold you back. The
all-new XLITE from our Specialized division is a one strut foil kite
that performs exceptionally well with your favorite hydrofoil. Why?
Because our development team fused the power of our fantastic Nexus
allrounder and the drifting of our unbeatable Section wave kite into a
package that's an honest 20% lighter.
How do we do it?
reduction isn't easy. So, we experimented with new leading edge
materials, new bridles, and one strut designs. After exhaustive R&D,
our designers zeroed in on CoreTex for the canopy and new ExoTex Light
for the leading edge. CoreTex adds support and power to the one strut
canopy. ExoTex Light brings similar strength as our current ExoTex
leading edge dacron yet is more than 10% lighter. We developed thinner,
anti-snag bridles that further reduce weight and improve water
relaunching. No detail was too small to lightweight. In the end, we hit
our 20% mass reduction target.
Select the new Sensor 2S Pro Foil bar for the best performance. Trust us on this one :)
The XLITE comes with an amazing backpack, manual and a repair kit.
