As the guys at Gaastra say, the Xenon has always been on the leading edge of development. And they are right, as the Xenon is one of the most refined freeride kiteboards today. This board blends power and forgiveness in a perfect way. It is able to perform thrilling maneuvers as well as take you on smooth cruises and it is optimized to suit virtually any rider out there.

The Gaastra Xenon opens an entire new world to al freeride enthusiasts, whether they love to charge big or cruise and relax. It features a friendly, rounder outline which assures a smooth glide and enhanced upwind and planing abilities. It also uses wider stance options to keep you as comfortable as possible during the ride. The Zenon features a soft flex pattern that assures very smooth landings after performing big airs.

The new rails profile allows you hold a good edge and improves overall control when edging. An easy scoop rocker line is used to assure excellent planing and upwind performance. The rocker also enhances speed and acceleration and assures excellent control in more demanding conditions like chop. The ABS sidewalls converge towards the tips to ensure a perfect grip to boost big airs and land softly and with style.

Due to the special crossover shape and outline, the Xenon offers freeride, freestyle and cruising performance into one package. The Xenon is built using a single shot wood construction with a high density foam core. This construction assures optimal flex and weight. Four 6 cm fins boost grip and upwind performance. The Gaastra Xenon is supplied with Pro Pads, Ergo Straps and Handle.

It's forgiving and user friendly. The extra flex makes it very comfy and easy to ride. It's not very fast or poppy, but it's fun to ride. Great for first rides and progression.
