The XCPee is a snug fitting thick rubber condom that attaches to a metre long waste tube. Discreetly fit the XCPee condom in private then on launch attach the waste tube and away you go.
Ask any experienced hang glider or paraglider pilot about the inescapable discomfort of a full bladder on a long cross country flight. It’s torture! Once your bladder’s full your concentration starts to waiver and before you know what’s going on you’ve either wet yourself or landed.
Aside from some very acrobatic manoeuvres that leave you exposed to collapses and turbulence on a paraglider, or a thorough soaking, you’re pretty much stuffed once the urge to pee comes on.
With the waste tube routed to carry your urine away you can pee as much as you like in total confidence that, should you need to hitch home, you’ll not be stinking like you’re incontinent.
The XCPee Base Kit comes as a single condom with the waste tube and connector. The tube is reusable, you can purchase additional condoms in packs of ten or twenty.
Ozone’s David Dagualt, winner of the 2009 French XC league, who flew 333km through the Alps this year uses them:
“Flying for ten hours requires you to drink and pee. If you can’t pee easily, you can’t drink, then you can’t relax, you can’t think, you fly badly and eventually you have to land. Using the XC Pee for the first time this year has changed the game massively. Just stick it in the morning, launch, drink, enjoy and fly far!”
