UC Irvine's very own Hyperloop team. We are working to shape the transportation of the future to be even more cheap, effecient, and clean.


Media Exposure

HyperXite placed in the top 5 of all Hyperloop teams in the world for their overall design. HyperXite is one of six teams to make it to the open air Hyperloop Tube in the second SpaceX Hyperloop Competition and is the FASTEST and HIGHEST RANKED American team. We are continuing our journey to alter the landscape of transportation and are happy to tell our story.
