Meet the new mega-boosting, addictive XR5 that delivers more hangtime than you can imagine. And did we mention the pillow-soft landings? This performance freerider has the goods for all your adventures. On the lake. Or on the Atlantic. It rips upwind, handles gusts (and lulls) like a boss and still retains the legendary XR character, comfort, and range that owners rave about. Core's product development team brought in former WOO jump world record holder Josh Emanuel to help make the XR5 what it is today. The South African worked tirelessly to fine-tune the kite’s incredible lift and hangtime.
With its new leading edge, strut, and wingtip design, you’ll find the 5th generation XR delivers unmatched control in the gusts and power in the lulls for relaxed cruising, explosive boosts, and sublime wave riding. But don’t take our word, though, and decide for yourself.
ExoTex Ultra Rigid Dacron:
So what’s Core's secret sauce? They start with a modified delta bow shape, and then spent the next 10 years improving every minute detail. Details like their Intelligent Arc bridle system that adjusts the wingspan, and massively increases wind range. And ExoTex Ultra Rigid Dacron, our exclusive airframe material that seriously increases canopy rigidity and aerodynamics without adding a stitch in weight.
ExoTex’s radial reinforcements not only give the XR5’s airframe its ridiculous stability but it also eliminates the dreaded leading edge seam bulge. New riders to old Pros will appreciate the rock solid canopy in the surf and on the flats. ExoTex Ultra Rigid Dacron. Exclusively made for CORE by Dimension Polyant, the world leader in sailcloth technology.
Coretex Triple Ripstop: Three unique coating processes to increase strength, tear resistance, longevity, UV protection and elongation.
Short Bridle System: Improves feedback so you can better feel your kite position. The kite is more an extension of yourself and feedback is instant.
Intelligent Arc: This is a bridle configuration that modifies the airfoil on demand in a linear and direct way. The XR5 increases it's wingspan with a pull on the bar to generate more lift than ever before. In contrast, letting off the pressure will drop the wings and depower the kite. This feature allows for precise control of your power.
5 Strut Frame : Classic 5 strut exoskeleton frame, required to contain the awesome power and control that this kite can deliver. Classic because it works, it's durable and incredibly strong.
Delta Bow Shape: Incorporating the concave trailing edge and swept back wings from both a delta and bow kite creating a hybrid shape for the best of both worlds.
Core Intelligent Trim System: Fully adjustable back line tension, bar pressure and kite turning speed. The freedom to adjust your kite to your own preferences.
Speed Valve 2: Connects to any standard 20mm O.D. twist lock pump hose, no adapters required! Maximising airflow, minimizing inflation time and reducing pump pressure. The location of the valve also protects it from beach hazards.
Speed Pump System: Supersonic Inflation! Speed pump strut distribution has been re-routed for quicker reinflation of the kite.
Instant Auto Relaunch: The XR5 is designed to immediately drive into a perfect relaunch position whenever the bar is released. No more downtime!
Sensor Bar Ready: The XR5 is fully compatible with older 4 line Core bars and the new the Sensor 2, you can purchase this as a package with the kite! It's also compatible with the titanium cored Sensor Pro bar sold separately.
Grintex Patche: Anti wear and tear patches right where you want them! Protection from those beach hazards.
The Xenon Rayo features most of the technical solutions that had been reserved for LaLuz. Steps free hull design features CNC machined rail channels. Hybrid bottom shape combines all benefits of single concave with progressive character of double v outflow channels in the tip/tail area. Moderate rocker line and softer flex characteristics with a new tip/tail shape complement this versatile board. All that makes Rayo easy to make progress on and fun to ride no matter the conditions. Each of the sizes was designed individually to maximize its performance. The pop of Rayo is very accessible, no matter if you are just learning power moves or need to boost high for your most complicated wake style moves. The bigger sizes in the range with great upwind abilities and fast planing characteristics are a great choice for low wind freestyle.
Harness tech. What do we really need in our harnesses? What can be done better? By asking these questions to ourselves Brunotti came up with a completely new way of developing their harnesses. In a short sentence, they called: “cut the crap and keep the tech!”. Us as kiteboarders don’t want any unnecessary stuff on our harnesses. Brunotti wanted their harnesses to be light, and to keep being light, even when soaked in water. They also wanted maximum support, but also minimum weigh, as well as wanting no compromises in terms of comfort, that’s it! To be able to reach all these goall, Brunotti began developing a super lightweight Pre-Curved 360 Smartframe that’s positioned between the inner and outer layer. This frame transfers the forces and spreads them over your back. Apart from this, the addition of the Fix-Tips on the super light spreadercover will make sure the Harness is secured all around to give you the perfect support around your waist.
Your session’s awesomeness depends heavily on your gear. We believe the Sensor 2 control bar system contributes much more than you would think to kite performance, and it’s what you don’t see that makes Core's bars so unbelievably good. The functional know-how they hide inside and the minimalist design on the outside gives their bars the signature CORE confidence you expect, and the safety features you rely on.
The Core Sensor 2 Bar System will provide you with the lightest, safest, and most direct feeling bar on the market. Because Core sell more than just cool bars. they sell confidence.
Meet the Sensor 2. This innovative bar is our go-to bar for all of the Core range of kites. R&D is a priority here at Core, and they work very hard to bring industry leading materials and ideas to control bar development while maintaining its functional simplicity and safety. One look at a CORE bar is all it takes to appreciate the quality, precision, and the technology. But the real magic remains hidden. Take for example a comfortable grip that meets a thin bar. To create an indestructible bar with the lightest, narrowest grip possible required thinking outside the box. Thinking that led to a titanium truss construction, so wearing thick gloves in 8C temps isn’t a big deal with the Sensor 2 Bar. The German engineered, titanium cored, Sensor 2 bar is: Simplicity in design. State-of-the-art in function. And absolutely safe. But if that’s still not enough for you, Core have the new Sensor 2S or Sensor 2S Pro.

Service rating : Terrible service!! Ordered kite packaged on 15th only received kite and board on 25th still no harness or cords (so may as well not have received the kite and board). On my first phone call I was told it had been dispatched last week, phoned today to find it had only been dispatched on 22nd. Awful customer care, I paid extra for prompt delivery as it was a birthday gift, had I been told it would be over 10 days I'd have cancelled the order but I guess they knew that & that's why I never heard from them. So disappointed to say the least, was meant to be a lovely birthday gift which has been ruined and what make its worse for a second weekend its ideal conditions!!
Product : Your customer feed back e mail has arrived before my purchase has, still waiting after 10 days!!
