Real lightweight construction

Available from 3.4 kg with fully lightweight design: The XI uses a mix of 27 and 32 gm Porcher Skytex cloth. To save more weight the number of cells and sliced diagonals has been reduced. The stress distribution system has been reworked to coordinate these requirements. The result is a perfectly balanced entity.

Performing in all conditions

The XI combines light weight with the outstanding performance of the Performance-Intermediate IOTA 2. The High-end B wing features high pitch and directional stability in mobile air. This and its significant stability at speed encourage relaxed, hours-long flying – with performance you can call upon at any time.

Unique Allround talent

As an allround talent the XI takes you wherever you would like to go: on a long cross country following a hike to a remote takeoff, as your first vol-bivouac companion, on a trip round the world or an evening Hike & Fly – the antidote for a busy day. Your creativity has no bounds with a XI.

Technology & Features

Double 3D-Diamond Shaping

A diagonal perspective in the two-fold 3D shaping computations works to counteract seam-gathering (ruching) and the effects of the vertical forces across the profile. This achieves an even smoother canopy surface at the leading edge.

State-of-the-Art Technology

The latest technology is incorporated in the XI: for example the Advanced Air Scoop for friendly stall behaviour, short C-Wires for maximum profile retention and Miniribs for a smooth, efficient trailing edge.

Sliced Diagonals

The XI has Sliced Diagonals inside the wing to provide ideal tension distribution at minimum weight. Extensive work on this technology enabled many line support points to be saved, as well as ensuring the stable shape of the canopy itself, even under demanding aerodynamic and mechanical conditions.

Pitch Control System

The XI has a modern pitch control system for its trailing edge, which interconnects with the B-level. It can be flown actively and steered by the C/B-levels when accelerated.
