Big light wind kites have the tendency to be hard to ride in the waves as the low end tries to yank you off your board, that is why they've developed the Section LW. This kite with its high aspect ratio, Radical Reaction Tips, and 3 strut design is for controllable drift while you play in the waves and turn on a dime when you need to.
ULTRALIGHT 3 STRUT FRAME is the perfect balance between flexibility and weight. The Section’s sharply reduced strut and leading edge diameter use the least Dacron of any CORE kite. This weight saving measure makes for superb balance and slack-line drifting.
Sections SURF PROFILE features a further setback maximum camber and a slightly lower aspect ratio to improve slack line drift. Give it gas, though, and the Section responds instinctively.
RADICAL REACTION TIPS are a tad shorter and ‘less square’ than the GTS3. The fine tuning optimizes the Section’s reflexes, agility and directional control in waves.
EXOTEX is a new asymmetrical Dacron weave and emulsion (protective coating) process is specifically developed for our exoskeleton frames to prevent bulging, ripping and UV degradation. The no stretch fabric also improves airflow by permitting reduced leading edge and strut diameters. Despite reducing strut diameters, our new ExoTex fabric upgrades frame stiffness, flight stability and rider feedback.
CORETEX TRIPLE RIPSTOP fabric is protected and strengthened with three different coating processes called emulsions. CoreTex sets new benchmarks in breaking strength, tear resistance, longevity, UV protection and elongation.
The FUTURE-C SHAPE delivers fast, tight turns and precise control. The Section is also marginally more open (that is, slightly ‘flatter’) than the GTS3 to promote better drifting.
CORE INTELLIGENT TRIM SYSTEM (CIT) is a fully adjustable back line tension (aka trim), bar pressure and kite turning speed, our quick adjusting trim system gives you the freedom to ride any way you like.
GRINTEX PATCHES are extreme abrasion resistant patches on leading edge segment seams and strut attachment points will give you another level of protection from those perfectly placed beach hazards.
