BIG AIR / FREERIDE / WAVE
An absolute big air savage, the XR4 has unadulterated power form its Delta Bow Profile. Its shape is held firm by its Five ExoTex enforced struts and Intelligent Arc for control in the gusts and power in the lulls. The grunt of the LW edition will get you up and riding in light winds and give impressive hangtime. The XR4 LW’s DNA is packed with technology to make every light wind day, a day to remember.
The DELTA BOW SHAPE maximizes depower and control for early planing; upwind performance and, of course, big air. The shape also contributes to CORE’s signature precision, bar feel, relaunch-ability, and turn characteristics.
The INTELLIGENT ARC is a bridle configuration that increases its wingspan with a pull on the bar. Likewise, sheet out and the kite folds in its wings and depowers. Intelligent Arc. For precise, controllable, power and depower on demand.
The SHORT BRIDLE SYSTEM configuration improves feedback so you can better sense your kite position. For precise, tight but not overpowering, pivoty turns. In the larger kite sizes, this reflexivity increases even more so. It also prevents the bridle from tangling when the kite rolls on the water.
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.
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.
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.
ULTRALIGHT WINGTIPS made from ExoTex provides an opportunity for weight saving leading and trailing edge designs while protecting areas in contact with the beach during launching and landing. Those areas are particularly robust and designed to take a beating.
