The Rayo opens a new world to all kiteboarding fans. It is designed to deliver no compromise all round performance in a wide range of conditions and it is designed especially for beginner to advanced riders. This means it has the power and bite a demanding rider needs to perform cool tricks, but it is also very forgiving and easy to handle, so casual riders can enjoy a nice, relaxing ride. It has an awesome freestyle potential and the can propel you to the next level with ease.

As the guys at Xenon say, the Rayo is the most user friendly board in their 2014 twin tip range. This is a board designed to deliver reliable freestyle performance and accommodate entry level riders without fuss. It is also optimized to perform great in lighter winds. It features a slightly squared profile with concave tips and parallel outlines.

This shape maximizes its light wind potential and also improves its upwind and early planing performance. The guys at Xenon have used a Hybrid bottom shape, featuring a single concave with progressive character of double v outflow channels in the tip/tail area hull shape. This bottom shape assures a very smooth glide plus plenty grip and excellent control.

The softer flex makes the Rayo very comfortable to ride and assures a solid and easy drive in chop. A moderate rocker line enhances control and provides optimal speed and acceleration. The pop is optimized to suit beginner riders as well as advanced ones. The Rayo is easy to load and pop and has very smooth and predictable landings.

The larger models are optimized to deliver reliable light wind performance and can also suit heavier and larger riders. Overall, the Rayo is a fun to ride board, which can be used by anyone and always delivers great performance.
