Great. Looking forward to it.
Xscream Helium 2016 - new hull :)So XScream are putting out a new hull, XScream Helium. But its pretty thin with the pictures and videos, and im guessing its because official launch would be somewere around World Finals. So if anyone has sneak peaks it would be nice to see them :D I also saw a video on instagram of a guy...www.x-h2o.com
@Wakerider26 Peter can give a good description
I like the idea of spins easier!!Im almost certain that the helium is 1" shorter and 1 1/2" wider than the dvx. Ive ridden both. The helium spins and flips easier. It does seem to ride lot flatter than the dvx. Both are good hulls and you cant go wrong with ether.
Good info. I’m 5’8 about 200lbs. I like the look of the pole so bushings is a small price to pay lol.I owned multiple dvxs and then got the helium when they came out (900rr powerplants). After 2 heliums, I actually went back to a DVX. Being a smaller rider (about 170lbs), the helium is so stable that I could not get the ass end of the ski down during setup wakes, still cannot on my buddies tpe1200 helium.
Honestly, you cannot make a bad choice here. Both are great hulls and most importantly great quality and well built. They are both easy as a superjet to build/maintain. My only complaint is the pole setup. Seems like every year you need to replace bushings/uprights to keep the pole tight
Oh yeah, xs pole is great. I recommend running an ADA or thrust steering though. They bolt right up. For some reason on all of mine I had issues with the pole coming loose from the underside. Therefore you have to remove the tank and exhaust to get to them to replace/tighten up. More annoying that anything.Good info. I’m 5’8 about 200lbs.

Thanks for the info. I will keep an eye out for pole issue when I locate a ski. If you hear of a helium in the 20k range let me know if you think of it.Oh yeah, xs pole is great.

Where is the confusion? Yes I know the DVX has been around longer but I’m willing to hold out for a helium is a better choice. Hence the fact I’m asking for comparison between them.but I have been seeing more DVX available.... ? Really? lol
I wish I had the opportunity to ride both back to back. I agree a lot is based on preference which is why I wanted to know what was different in the hulls. Biggest problem was before this post I wanted a helium, now I’m torn between the 2! LolPeter Waldron had a HE2, He sold it and I think went back to a DVX, Just did not work for him......... But this is a preference thing....... Try to find some to test ride to see.
