XXLite 2 Higher trim speed Accelerator system Excellent flare & landing behaviour Improved comfort in-flight More compact and agile handling The XXLite 2 is a single-surface ultra-lightweight mountain wing designed for serious Hike & Fly pilots and alpinists. This all-new wing delivers significantly improved performance and handling with a higher trim speed and easier landing, compared to its predecessor. XXLite 2 Logo LEGACY The first of its kind in 2012, the XXLite was one of the most unique and innovative paragliders to ever be put into production. The XXLite series still offers the lightest aircraft in existence when combined with the OZONE F*Lite. NEXT GENERATION TECHNOLOGY The XXLite 2 features a unique full span leading edge ram-air inflated tube. This provides a solid leading edge, which accepts lower angles of attack, yielding a higher trim speed and further acceleration. Now comparable with a dual-surface wing, the new speed range widens the safe flyable window and improves performance in real conditions. LAUNCH & LANDING The inflation characteristics are still ridiculously easy. The wing feels light and easy to raise overhead – even without touching the risers. The take-off speed is low, allowing you to leave the ground with just a few steps. Most significantly, the landing is vastly improved. The new flare performance allows soft, controlled landings, even in zero wind conditions. IN ACTIVE AIR Far more comfortable and confidence-inspiring than the original, it absorbs turbulence in a more controlled manner. The XXLite 2 offers excellent passive safety and is designed for pilots of intermediate ability. It exhibits docile behaviour in test maneuvers. Available in sizes 16m and 18m and weighing in at just 1.3 kg (16m size) with a minuscule packing volume, the XXLite 2 is the ultimate hike and fly wing. EN D* Why? The XXLite EN Classification How does a glider with mostly EN A results end up being classified as EN D? The answer stems from a strange political battle that arose after OZONE introduced collapse lines on modern wings such as the popular Delta series, which were opposed by competing companies who had not yet tested this technology. Instead of investigating this new method of glider development, some of our competitors lobbied to “ban” the use of collapse lines. The end result was that any wing using collapse lines to affect the required EN folding methods was given a D rating, even if all tests exhibited EN A behavior.
