Five new Gaastra kiteboards are ready to start the 2012 season. Each board has been carefully engineered according to the highest quality standards and intended to offer a perfect balance between usability and power. The Xenon is the perfect tool for race and freeride enthusiasts. The board mixes power and speed with user friendly features in a unique way. It can be used by pro riders as well as by less experienced ones without problems. The board feels alive and very reliable from the first moment it is set on the water.

The world of kiteboarding is evolving fast and the needs of riders become more and more demanding each season. The Gaastra team keeps up with their needs by crafting high performance gear each year. In 2012 Gaastra redefines the racing and freeride disciplines with the release of a high performance board: the Xenon. This board provides the rider with power, speed and ultimate control. It has a refined profile which assures a smooth and fast glide and keeps the rider comfortable at all times.

The sidewalls converge towards he tips to provide top control as well as improved grip and smooth landings. The rounder outline also makes the board very dynamic and delivers a loose maneuverability. The rider can perform any trick in the book with minimum effort. The wider stance improves control at high speeds and keeps the board well balanced on the surface of the water. The soft flex pattern assures optimal steering response and generates optimal pop for a powerful drive.

Pro riders can experience high speeds, insane lifts and extra hangtime, while less experienced ones can progress safely. The rider can perform rail to rail transitions easily and doesn’t need to edge the board too much to head upwind. The Xenon has a new rocker which improves upwind performance and assures a fast acceleration and a good top speed. The board is equipped with 6cm fins which improve grip and optimize power delivery. Gaastra has engineered the Xenon using a high density foam core. This core reduces the overall weight without affecting the board’s durability. Another advantage of this structure is that it generates the perfect flex pattern needed for freeride and racing.

Riding with the Gaastra Xenon is like driving a sports car. The board is fast, agile and powerful and reacts immediately to any command. It offers the perfect blend of power and control riders need to achieve the ultimate performance.

Great board! Fast and accurate. It can give you a hell of a race. I don't know why not very many riders use Gaastra gear. I love their kites and boards.
