Reedin Super Wing X
Reedin started working with the leading X-PLY manufacturer to create a thinner, lighter and more ductile X-PLY material specifically designed for SUPERWING X in order to create a higher performance wing.
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. 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.

SuperWing X Designer Notes
"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!"
SuperWing X Key Features
X-PLY CANOPY - The stiffest, strongest wing canopy yet.
The X-PLY is stiffer, stronger and has virtually no stretch compared to regular canopy material, providing a ride like never before. The whole platform is much stiffer with minimal flutter even when the wing is flown at Neutral, making it the most stable and silent ride you’ll ever experience.
FOLDSTRIP Patent Pending - Pack in a small bag
The Use of X-PLY would not have been possible without Reedin's patent pending FOLDSTRIP that allows for the wing to be carried in a small bag. The FOLDSTRIP allows the wing to be folded in half at the level of the canopy material strip then rolled preventing creases on the X-PLY.
The Aspect Ratio evolves along with each size. Bigger sizes have a lower AR for a shorter wing span and better low end power, while smaller sizes have a slightly higher AR for superior high end control and speed. This also prevents the wingtip of bigger sizes from touching the water.
TENSIONED CANOPY - Minimal flutter
The SuperWing X was built under tension for the most stable profile and wing, to provide a very direct feel with minimal flutter while riding. This ensures a very stable ride, both in neutral at the front handle, as while riding.
RADIAL SEAMS - Minimal flutter, longer lifespan
The triple axis grid of the X-PLY perfectly spreads the effort throughout the entire canopy. This translates into a much more efficient wing.
S-STRUT - Easier to grab and more direct handles
Provides a very direct response because the back of the strut is directly connected to the canopy of the wing. The recess at the level of the handle allows for a short handle that still provides ample room for your hands, so you can have a very direct control of the wing, while keeping your hands comfortable.
STIFF & SOFT HANDLES - Adding control and comfort
Wide handles in order to easily adjust your position and change to wind force. The internal core makes the handle stiff, and it's covered with a soft and comfy sleeve made of a grippy, abrasion resistant canvas.
TRIPLE LAYER LE - Stiffer LE for increased efficiency
Built under tension for the most stable profile and wing, this provides a very direct feel with minimal flutter when riding and also ensures a very stable ride in both neutral style riding when you simply hold the wing in the wind using the front handle and riding position.
9MM ONE-PUMP HOSE - Faster inflation of strut and dump valve for fast deflation.
Hose and dump valve are located in the very front of the strut, which acts as a lock for the strut bladder to prevent unwanted movements when the wing is deflated.
