The XStyle is an accessible and predictable wing which allows us to safely begin the practice of freestyle paragliding in complete security with a maximum level of pleasure. The glider is designed to allow us to learn simpler maneuvers but also more advanced ones such as helicopters or even the misty flip.

DESIRE TO FLY

VOL ZEN

The XStyle is an easy glider to understand and fly thanks to a relatively short aspect ratio and predictable behaviour at the outer limits of safe flight.

SOARING

Super fun and very dynamic, this glider is communicative and amusing in almost all conditions. It’s relatively small surface area does limit its soaring potential in very light wind.

HIKE AND FLY

This glider was not designed with hike and fly in mind.

CROSS COUNTRY

Despite the small surface area the XStyle can still work well in the air mass, it is efficient in thermal conditions once they are working thanks to its precision turning.

FREESTYLE

Reactive and precise, yet neither too aggressive or fast, the XStyle allows us to practice acro safely. Stalls, SAT, looping, wing overs helicopters, misty flips…. The scope of progression available is vast and the passive security of the wing allows beginner acro pilots to avoid surprises.

ACRO

The XStyle was designed to allow us to start doing acro safely. It is entirely possible to learn a big part of available acro moves, but the glider may lack the energy for the most dynamic ones.

EN COMPETITION

The XStyle was not designed for acro competition at the highest level as its size would not allow sufficient energy for certain of the most dynamic maneuvers.
