XXLITE 2 – SINGLE SKIN HIKE&FLY GLIDER

  • 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.

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. Read about its EN certification here.

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.

The XXLite uses a combined A/B line attachment point on the chord. Due to this, it is impossible to pull the correctly sized EN folds (collapses) without collapse lines. With collapse lines the tests are completed properly and the reopening of the collapse occurs in less than one second (EN A result).

Importantly, it must be noted that EN certification does not measure how a collapse is made. It only measures the wing’s recovery from collapse.

Many single-skin wings require additional (non-flying) collapse lines to properly execute the EN tests. These testing lines automatically register the wing as EN D even if the resulting recovery from the collapse is “A”. Although other test houses appear to have ignored this rule (automatic EN D with use of collapse lines) and were given an overall result below D, we have no intention to mislead pilots, and trust that our customers will understand the flawed test regulations.

The mild character and excellent passive safety of the XXLite can only be understood by reading our description of the wing, not by looking at a misleading EN D classification.

    This glider is so much fun. Its the first single skin which makes sense in my opinion. Performance is very good for a single skin due tu the tube in the leading edge and the high aspect ratio. flairing it pretty good (also compared with single skins). break pressure is not really „feelable“ because there is no real internal pressure so it needs a pilot who knows about stall points and has some experience with other wings. be careful with „pumping“ the glider down. take off is like on all single skins amazing but the xxlite2 has a very little tendency to overshoot, which is not a big deal. even on no wind the glider keeps over your head, fantastic. take off speed is very low and it lifts you away on a few steps, even with tailwind. also against the wind the xxlite2´s performance is still ok and not going down like on most other single skins i flew. speedbar is kind of ueseless like on the other ones. it feels like its not more than 2-3km/h more speed like on trimmspeed this is probably the biggest MINUS compared to lightweight double skins like the UL4. i compared the xxlite2 a lot with the ultralite4 (UL4) and glide is same or pretty close to the UL4 in calm conditions, against wind a bit worse than the UL4. packing size and weight is THE BEST! just stuff it in your Ozo reverseble harness after landing and go up again. nobody thinks about a paraglider if he sees you walking with this little backpack. it also fits perfect in the B*Lite mini rucksack. with a f*lite harness its a BLAST and one of the lightest flying toys available. i have the 18 size and will never give it away, sorry UL4, for winter fun and hike&run i have now another partner ;-)

    Attention: a lot of people ask us for this glider for beginner courses. despite the D classification (for teaching only A classificated wings are allowed in germany) this wing is a classic SECOND special wing, made for hike&fly and weight junkies. its not a „full“ paraglider for thermal flying, cross country and „normal“ flying, there you need another wing.
