Introducing SUPERWING X

Reedin unveils its latest SUPERWING…


SUPERWING X is the stiffest, strongest, most direct wing we’ve ever created. You will go faster, jump higher and sail further upwind than ever before.

SUPERWING X sets the standard for high performance wings.

Advanced riders will instantly notice how direct, stiff, responsive and stable the wing is. You’ll jump higher, go faster, ride further upwind and experience minimal flutter when riding neutral. All with a noticeable increase in windrange.

X-PLY CANOPY – The stiffest, strongest, most direct wing you’ve ever flown

SUPERWING X came from designing wings for the past three years and coming to the conclusion that if we wanted higher performance, we needed to use higher performance material.We started working with the leading X-PLY manufacturer to create a thinner, lighter and more ductile X-PLY material specifically designed for SUPERWING X.

The X-PLY is stiffer, stronger and has virtually no stretch compared to conventional canopy material. This provides a ride like you’ve never experienced before when winging. The whole platform is much stiffer with barely any flutter even when the wing is flown at neutral making it the most stable and silent ride you’ll ever experience. Winging will never be the same.

Designer Notes By Damien Girardin

‘Designing SUPERWING X using X-PLY felt like a dream. The amazing stiffness of the material means that we can finally ride a wing that is extremely close to the intended 3d design.’

The Triax weave allows me to adjust my panel layout in order to tackle exactly how the efforts are spreading throughout the wing. My goal in the past year with wings has been to gain efficiency, control, stability and reduce flutter as much as possible. I really find it wrong to have a wing looking like a flag in the air every time you de-power or when you fly in neutral. Using regular polyester canopy, I worked on adding more and more tensioning seams on my designs and the wings have become a lot better, but I could still not eliminate flutter 100%. Also you can still feel the profile deformation when you ride.

So a stiffer material like X-ply was the natural evolution. I first used existing windsurfing X-PLY, but they were way too heavy and the weight totally outweighed the benefits. So I worked with our manufacturer to use the 1mil technology that they were using on some of their high performance sailboats, and combined with the Triax X-PLY that would allow me total control of load spreading. I am so excited about the result that I can not wait anymore to share this design with the world!
