The 2021 Cabrinha Crosswing X2 has an all new body outline and inflatable frame which makes it incredibly stiff and rigid. The wing holds its shape while under heavy loads or while boosting massive airs.
The control factor has been upped in many important ways. First off, we’ve fully separated the air boom inflation from the leading edge inflated section. This allows us to properly pressure each section individually to achieve the X2’s incredible stiffness while in flight. We’ve then taken that concept one step further with our unique Double Strut™ technology.
The Double Strut™ of the X2 allows one inflated mini strut to support the canopy profile while the second “boom” strut is designed for precise ergonomics and predictable wing control. Each strut serves its own function and purpose without compromise.
In a nod to wingsurfing’s incredible portability we have designed a hybrid handle system which draws on the best features of a rigid boom and the portability of a webbing handle. The result is a wider handle allowing the rider to micro trim their hand positions while riding to find the perfect center of effort. The rigid handles provide more direct rider input to the wing which in turn deliver an immediate result in wing control. And as a bonus, the wing can still be folded and placed into a small sized pack for easy portability.

The Crosswing pairs very well with a Foil Board. The efficiency of a foil board means that you can use a relatively small Crosswing with the board. Once up on the foil you will need very little power from the wing to fly. The size of the foil board should be in relation to your body weight. It’s easiest to use a board that sufficiently floats your weight and is stable enough to stand on. For the more experienced, you can use a small foil surfboard that requires water starting. This will also require sufficient wind but the increase in maneuverability is incredible.
A Crosswing can be used with any of the thousands of Paddle Boards that are in circulation today. Whether it be light wind on a lake or strong wind on the ocean, the Crosswing pairs very well with SUP’ing.
