MORE SPORTY – MORE X-CITEMENT

Five generations of X-Cite Ride shapes left a big footprint on the market. The name X-Cite Ride became a trademark for comfortable and sporty freeriding. Outstanding test reports have confirmed this. The new range still follows the basic concept. With the introduction of the new super easy Magic Ride boards we decided to slightly re-position the X-Cite Rides and to take them to the next level of sportiness. So the PLUS in the name stands for improved overall performance and for the fact that Generation 6 is sportier than ever whilst still being easy to handle.

[Check the tutorial freeride videos with this board.]

NEW SHAPE
They merge easy sailing on a stable platform with an exciting riding sensation, performance and maneuverability. We have made the boards a bit wider with a more parallel outline in the midsection. This results in a bigger planing surface lifting the board up onto the plane quickly and effortlessly. It also improves the stability when tacking or non-planing.

The tuned bottom curve allows the board to release easily creating the exciting feeling, stunning riding sensation and the increased sportiness. The new boards outperform their predecessors in all these aspects as well as being faster. Proven shape features such as the double concave front and mid section in combination with a soft tuck line provides the comfort expected from an X-Cite Ride.

Werner optimized the deck radius for a more comfortable stance and the thick foot pads complete the comfort package. Towards the tail the new outline is pulled-in a bit more. This additional curve at the tail helps to improve the maneuverability. Once the rail is set it carves a smooth stable arc, keeping plenty of speed for the jibe exit. The fin powers up quickly letting the board fly over chop and offers enormous performance. The new G10 fin that comes with the Pro Edition boards provides additional control.

SUMMARY

Sporty, fast and lively, these new freeride boards are re-designed for more performance and still preserve all of the proven X-Cite Ride attributes like easy riding and control. PLUS, they are very exciting and fun to ride, jibe and carve. Already X-Cited? Jump on the new boards and feel the performance PLUS!

STORAGE Store your board in mild (neither hot, nor cold; not exposed to sunlight), dry places ! Winter storage: non-freezing (constantly above +5°C). Note: Avoid storage in closed, damp conditions like in a wet boardbag! So, after windsurfing and safe transport put the board out of its bag and let both dry separately - otherwise your board will suffer from osmosis and blisters (bubbles) will show up on the boards surface. And your bag might start to smell.   NOSE PROTECTOR Damages caused by impacts are not covered under JP-Australia's limited warranty. Therefore, JP-Australia highly recommends the use of a nose protector. Especially recommended for novices and everybody, who wants to protect the board nose. The universal protector: Made of EVA, the UNI NOSE PROTECTOR is a very light yet strong protection. It is easy to handle as it is simply glued onto the nose. The set consists of 5 pieces: 2 side parts (one left and one right), and 3 connections in sizes Small, Medium and Large. By combining the two sides with the appropriate connection at the front, noses of almost all standard board sizes and shapes can be covered efficiently. This makes it an universal protector not only for JP boards but for most boards available on the market. Please note: The uni nose protector is not made for the use on demo boards or in windsurfing centers, but for private use only! DOWNLOAD: NoseProtector_Uni_Manual.pdf LIMITED FINISH - LESS IS MORE Since 2004 the first JP PRO Edition boards have a (SUPER) LIMITED FINISH. By reducing the amount of paint (sanding off) the weight is decreased. Consequently, the boards have a custom look with certain "imperfections" in the paint, thus the material below might shine through. Sometimes they even look as if repaired. This is also true for the Full Wood Sandwich boards as they now feature a LIMITED FINISH, too. You won't find two boards exactly the same. We believe this is worth it as the weight reduction is substantial and there's no loss of durability or strength.   AIR VALVE airvalveWe highly recommend to open the air valve screw when the board is not used. Reason: Due to high pressure differences the sandwich construction suffers from high stress and can delaminate long term from the board's core. This will result in a soft spot and start absorbing water. Pressure differences are caused by high temperature variations or other pressure variations from e.g. aero planes. Do not forget to close the air vent before going on the water!
