MAXIMUM RETURN FOR MINIMUM INPUT

The highly successful shapes of the X-Cite Ride range remain unchanged compared to 2007 with the exception of an adjusted fin position.

Here is what international magazines had to say about the 2007 boards.
UK magazine: “It begins to accelerate at the slightest sniff of enough wind. Up to speed it is effortless to sail and reaches very good speed without requiring any real input from the rider. Experienced riders can perhaps squeeze more out of it with extra concentration, but the returns for minimal input remains the XCite Ride’s trump card.”
German magazine: “The board fulfills what its name is promising
– also for experienced riders. No matter if sailing in overpowered conditions or in jibing it is a control freak. No other board is so easy to control while going fast and during jibing. The fact that it is so easy to stay on a plane through any jibe makes it an easy jibing board par excellence.”
French magazine: “One of the easiest accessible regarding thefoot straps and general equipment. The JP is easy to control and handle. It is stable and fun with good planing sensation.”


SHAPE DETAILS

Not radically short as extra length makes the boards more forgiving.

The rocker line is designed to give a loose feel and a super comfortable ride even in rough and choppy conditions. Short wetted surface for high speed giving the exhilarating sensation of riding a much smaller board.

Constant volume distribution pops the board onto the plane without an active sailing style, also carrying a huge range of sail sizes with ease.

Nicely domed deck for a relaxed stance. A wide variety of foot strap positions offer the ideal trim for pleasant and relaxed sailing, suited for short board beginners through to advanced riders.

Pulled-in outline behind the back foot strap combined with thin rails producing excellent maneuverability. They turn on a dime and the radius can be changed at any time during high speed carving maneuvers.

New fin position for an even more comfortable ride which results in higher top speed.

 

SUMMARY

It’s all in the name – exciting boards that deliver an exciting ride. So easy they almost sail themselves. They plane early achieving top speed effortlessly. Quoted by magazines as ”The best Easy Jiber and the most comfortable board in choppy waters.”


RIDER

Short board beginners to advanced freeriders looking for an early planing board which is the best easy jiber (comment of magazine) and which demands minimum input in return for an exciting ride.
