Description

As a light and compact Performance-Intermediate from 3.4 kg the XI satisfies the most diverse pilots’ needs; and does it in style. Whether near or far, difficult flying or exciting adventure, the new light high-end B goes with you for bivouac flying, Hike & XC-fly tours, traveling or discovering new routes in remote regions.

XI

LIGHT: Available from 3.4 kg with fully lightweight design: The XI uses a mix of 27 and 32 gm Porcher Skytex cloth. To save more weight the number of cells and sliced diagonals has been reduced. The stress distribution system has been reworked to coordinate these requirements. The result is a perfectly balanced entity.

POWERFUL: The XI combines light weight with the outstanding performance of the Performance-Intermediate IOTA 2. The High-end B wing features high pitch and directional stability in mobile air. This and its significant stability at speed encourage relaxed, hours-long flying – with performance you can call upon at any time.

UNIVERSAL: As an allround talent the XI takes you wherever you would like to go: on a long cross country following a hike to a remote takeoff, as your first vol-bivouac companion, on a trip round the world or an evening Hike & Fly – the antidote for a busy day. Your creativity has no bounds with a XI.

FEATURES

Double 3D-Diamond Shaping

DOUBLE 3D-DIAMOND SHAPING: A diagonal perspective in the two-fold 3D shaping computations works to counteract seam-gathering (ruching) and the effects of the vertical forces across the profile. This achieves an even smoother canopy surface at the leading edge.

Sliced Diagonals

SLICED DIAGONALS: The XI has Sliced Diagonals inside the wing to provide ideal tension distribution at minimum weight. Extensive work on this technology enabled many line support points to be saved, as well as ensuring the stable shape of the canopy itself, even under demanding aerodynamic and mechanical conditions.

STATE-OF-THE-ART TECHNOLOGY: The latest technology is incorporated in the XI: for example the Advanced Air Scoop for friendly stall behaviour, short C-Wires for maximum profile retention and Miniribs for a smooth, efficient trailing edge.

PITCH CONTROL SYSTEM: The XI has a modern pitch control system for its trailing edge, which interconnects with the B-level. It can be flown actively and steered by the C/B-levels when accelerated.

Loop reinforcement and double coating

LOOP REINFORCEMENT AND DOUBLE COATING: Every XI line has internal loop reinforcement. This increases its line diameter, and thus the surface area of loop to loop contact. This reduces pressure where thin line meets thicker, and avoids the problem of the thin line cutting into the other. Base line loops also have external covers to minimise wear where they meet their quicklink. Furthermore Edelrid Magix Pro lines undergo a detailed Thermo Shield treatment and have an additional UV-Protec-Coating. These finishing processes prolong life, provide resistance to dust, water, and UV radiation.

Very stable length

VERY STABLE LENGTH: Compared with Dyneema, Aramid lines, in general, change their lengths very little. Edelrid “Magix Pro” demonstrates minimal stretching and shrinking – within a maximum 0.2 % – and this line has excellent return-to-original properties. Experience shows that paragliders, fully lined with Edelrid “Magix Pro”, do not require retrimming for very long periods. Original flying characteristics are retained even after much intensive use.

Perfect weight range choice

The XI size selection was thought of as having Seamless Weight Ranges between 10 and 15 kg steps. Every pilot’s flying weight will find itself within only one ideal takeoff weight range, because these ranges extend seamlessly through the glider sizes, but do not overlap. These XI ideal takeoff weight areas provide the optimal relationship between gliding speed and climb performance for each size in all normal flying conditions, and also take into account the different paraglider size characteristics.
