BAT PANEL LAYOUT
Each segment of the Cross’ panel layout pursues an important purpose to optimize the load distribution and maximize dimension stability over a long period. Segmented panels in the front lead to the perfect definition of the profile, while perpendicular panels in the back minimize stretch.
FORCETEC DACRON MATERIAL
The newly introduced ForceTec Dacron material maximizes stiffness, lightness and durability of the wing’s leading edge and strut skeleton. The four central panels and the head panel are manufactured in a double layer construction in order to strengthen the section bearing the highest load.
Our cutting-edge VoltNova triple ripstop spinnaker supplied by Teijin in the front and center section of the Cross perfectly combines lightness, robustness and neutralizes stretch, which optimizes load distribution over a long period.
VOLTNOVA+ TRAILING EDGE
Compared to the already impressive VoltNova spinnaker, the thicker VoltNova+ double ripstop supplied by Teijin is in fact significantly stiffer, more durable and robust. This innovative material is perfectly suited to stabilize the Cross’ trailing edge and enhance the wing’s overall longevity.
BALANCED TENSION PROFILE
Pre-tensioned sail and the perfect balance of tension between the leading and trailing edge leads to optimized profile stability and easier handling.
ANGLED STRUT DESIGN
An angled strut provides the perfect mix of power and control as well as an ergonomic and comfortable arm position in all conditions. A newly developed symmetric seam connects the sail to the strut, which forms a stiff, strong and efficient fusion.
Our stiff UltraGrip handles optimize your connection to the wing, allowing you to fully make use of the Cross’ unmatched power, control and handling characteristics. If you prefer soft handles, there’s still the opportunity to switch to those in the same mounting framework.
SEPARATE AIR CELLS
The leading edge and strut are in- and deflated through two separate SUP valves, which allows you to tune your Cross wing with individual pressures.
KEVLAR ABRASION PROTECTION
Kevlar patches protect the seams on the leading edge and strut, maximizing stability and durability in the toughest conditions.
360 VIEW WINDOWS
Two windows with an updated, longer outline on each side of the strut provide 360 degree view, while the introduction of a new special window material prevents creases.
