What changes did Core Kites make to the new XR5?

To improve a kite with 10 years of engineering excellence, Core kept the DNA of the XR4 while tweaking some fabrics and re-engineering an all new, short bridle system. The result is a boosting machine with loads of hangtime, great upwind ability and a 5 strut delta-bow shape that makes this kite great for beginners. 

The XR5's exclusive use of ExoTex Ultra Rigid Dacron and a narrower leading edge compared to the XR4 have given the kite linear steering and de-power while delivering stable, controllable hangtime.

Although the XR5's Big Air talent has been increased, the comfort and character remain intact. Beginner kitesurfers will love the reliable sheet & go functionality, stability and easy re-launch.

All new Speed Valve 2 ~ No more need for a special adapter, the Speed Valve 2 allows you to connect the kite hose directly to the inflate valve to maximize airflow and minimize inflation time. 

For maximum performance and comfort, pair the XR5 with a Core Sensor Bar & Lines.
