X:Wave

BXSA38XWH004038

All-Round Wave

The new X:Wave HD is based on the 2018 Combat design. Same great shape, slightly more power, better early planing and performance to suit all levels of rider and a wider variety of conditions. The X:Wave HD comes with a longer boom to offer more speed, power and stability and deeper shaping in the bottom 2 battens to further enhance these benefits. Extremely comfortable handling with all the juice you need to get out over the whitewater and make the most of challenging conditions, but still light in the hands and fantastically maneuverable. Ideal for use in all kinds of wave sailing conditions around the globe.

Key Features

  • Wide wind range: A large tuning range, thanks to a stable profile, allows the rider to trim the sail for all conditions.
  • Versatile: Moderate and progressive luff curve for optimum maneuverability, speed and power in both onshore and side-shore conditions.
  • 4 batten configuration on all sizes.

Designer's Comments

The X:Wave HD is built using classic industry standard sail construction, leaving out some of the premium features of our CORE:Series of sails, but with the full heritage of Neilpryde’s design knowledge going into the shapes. This allows us not to compromise on performance but to bring a more accessible sail to the market.

We put a lot of effort into the development of this new sail and the entire X:Series, that’s why we are convinced that they will work perfectly for years to come.

We developed a sail which works for everybody in every type of wave conditions, hence why it’s slightly more powerful. A large tuning range, thanks to a stable profile, allows the rider to trim the sail for all conditions, and allows both light and heavier sailors to be able to get the most out of this sail. Suitable for all sizes of wave boards and freestyle/wave boards.
