I have been using the Cloud 9 new X22 foil to replace the Liquid Force Impulse I had before this. The LF Impulse is the same as the old Cloud 9 S24 wing. The X22 is the smallest wing in their new line. They make a 22", 24, 28 and 32" surf wings. Wings are designed for surf foil but we all know how wings crossover to kiteboarding nicely.
I enjoyed the LF Impulse/ S24 in low/normal powered conditions but did not like the lift created when riding overpowered. Too much for my 160 lb. rider ability. I have found the X22 is very manageable in all conditions especially strong wind. It turns nice and is stable like the Impulse and may have more top end speed but I would not call this a fast wing which is OK for me. It pretty much has done everything I wanted for a kiting wing.
The wingset comes with a new design carbon fuselage (more streamlined) with an aluminum mast (Carbon available also). Mast hole pattern is the same as a Liquid Force mast so your LF mast will bolt right up. Sadly the new wings are not reverse compatible to the old LF Impulse and old Cloud 9 carbon fuselage.
The new carbon fuse is very nice. The wings come in a hybrid or carbon construction. I went with the hybrid construction to save some money and they still are very light. May add a X24 or X28 wing option for light wind foiling as it bolts right on to this fuse.
I have hit bottom many times (sand and rock) and they have held up well with my negligence. Thats about it. Nice foil for the money. Check them out. I am not affiliated with Cloud 9.
