FREESTYLE!

The XENUS is THE perfect tool to enter the world of Freestyle. Easy fly-back manoeuvrability and an overall very forgiving flight characteristic make it easy to progress safely. With the experience of Acro-legend Xandi Meschuh we have been able to create an dedicated Freestyle wing passing EN-B with a total weight range between 65 and 110 kg.

THE CHARACTERISTICS

Believe us, it’s not the easiest job to make a 20m² and 22.5m² dedicated Freestyle wing to pass EN-B. Xandi Meschuh combined his years of experience in Acro and Freestyle flying with the know-how captured during innumerable safety trainings. The glider is entirely made of Porcher Sport materials. Durable but still light Skytex 38 material has been used for top and bottom sail resulting into a glider weight of 4.2 and 4.6 kg only. Besides the predictable and sharp handling, which is the key behaviour of any freestyle wing, the glider also performs surprisingly well in thermals as we incorporated some GRAVIS DNA. The sporty trim speed offers flying pleasure at its best and dynamical maneuverability. The newly created profile creates a light steering pressure which continuously increases towards the stall point. Furthermore the XENUS has a wide parachutal-stall window and requires only small adjustments during helico maneuvers. To sum it up, the overall flight characteristics are the key for any freestyle enthusiast to progress as fast as possible.

 

THE LOOK

Like all Icaro gliders, the design of the XENUS shows a unique detail of the Icaro Edelweiss flower – selected to fit every glider´s special characteristics and your desire to make a lasting impression in the sky.

The XENUS is available in one unique color way.
