Yes, XBows are among the highest jumping, longest hangtime kites.

The highest jumping kite is the Eclipse Thruster in any size and it is so easy to jump if you know how to edge the board and turn the kite you are going to go high. so go out and demo the kites first and you will see for yourself

Check out the '08 Windwing Rampage 2. I've been riding almost 10 years and these are the best jumping, most stable kites I have ever flown. But do try them all.

Do not forget the F-one Bandit. Easy jumping machine with a lot of height and hangtime :thumb:

But the Rhino 2008 is coming to the stores, which also will be a jumping machine like previous years model.

Crossbow III hands on! Huge jumps, but also the new Switch Blade knows how to go sky-high!!!


And I forgot the new SS Rev. Very easy to make massive jumps.

I also tried the takoon Furia in size 11m2. Also very easy to jump with, good height too.

Man, so many good kites to choose from, it will be a difficult job 8)
