- Welcome to the next level with the X1, Origin Jumpwork’s new high-performance open-canopy vehicle. Built from lightweight polymers, the X1 takes speed and agility to the next level thanks to seamlessly integrated engine technology and joint vector thruster placement. Innovative design and high-quality engineering weave together to create a flight experience like no other. The X1 is an open-canopy snub spacecraft manufactured by Origin Jumpworks and designed by famed ship engineer Alberto Vara and his company Infinity Custom. Constructed with specialized polymers to keep it light, the X1 is a luxury single-seater built for speed and agility. It can be utilized for light combat on the ground and in space but doesn’t come with a quantum drive or jump engine. The joint vector thruster placement and integrated engine technology help achieve its sleek overall profile.
- Built to endure tougher environments and look good doing it, the X1 Force is a modified version of the base X1 model, featuring additional defensive elements to toughen up this speedy and agile open canopy bike, allowing it to serve in a variety of roles, from exploring worlds to potential security infiltration ops. The X1 Force is a variant of the X1 ultralight spacecraft developed by Origin Jumpworks and two-time Aron Award winner ship engineer Alberto Vara’s design company, Infinity Custom. The redesign upgrades weaponry and armor in exchange for a slight reduction in speed and handling. The most significant changes are the addition of a second shield generator and the switch from an M3A Laser Cannon to a CF-117 Bulldog Laser Repeater. Produced in smaller numbers than the other X1 models, Origin has marketed it to anyone interested in fast combat, ground interception, and infiltration missions.
- How do you make fast go faster? Origin Jumpworks X1 Velocity dares to push the boundaries of speed by stripping down the base X1 to its core elements; eliminating the weapon mount and incorporating new Syntek composites to create a lighter chassis for overall weight loss. The X1 Velocity is a variant of the X1 ultralight spacecraft developed by Origin Jumpworks and two-time Aron Award-winning ship engineer Alberto Vara’s design company, Infinity Custom. As the name implies, the Velocity focuses primarily on improved speed and handling over the base X1. To that end, Origin engineers abandoned all the attached weaponry and converted the majority of the standard hull material into Syntek composites. The process ultimately removed eight percent of the original model’s total weight, creating a variant popular among open canopy racers.
