Gone are the days of travelling to the beach with heaps of gear — a quiver of wave kites, a quiver of freestyle kites and a separate set of kites for boosting. Now, you can do it all with the CORE Nexus and NEXUS LW. This new, future-C design combines key features from CORE’s proven Section 2, XR5, and GTS kites. Find out more by reading the news below, provided by CORE. Better yet, get out and try one!
The Nexus, billed as two kites in one, but we found at least three things it’s really good at. Certainly, it’s great in waves, with more lift than a Section so it boosts better as well, but the slack line control is still there in spades and you can mess with the settings. One way for Surf, the other for freestyle on which settings if you’ve been trying that handles trick and not nailing it then chances are you will with the Nexus, it’s a lot more forgiving, less punch in the face than say the GTS4.
Then in the middle settings, it’s just a great freeride kite, what makes it good at waves and freestyle also means it excels for intermediates wishing to just go ride, or push their individual envelopes. It’s not an XR5 so if you don’t know how to jump, pick your kicker, load and release it’s not going to take you to the moon like the XR5 will, but if you do know all that good stuff then it’ll do it better as the guys found out in Cape Verde where they broke the island height record using it.
Then there’s foiling, lots of folks have spotted that what makes kites good in waves also makes them good on a foil, but there’s a little bonus with the Nexus particularly when your foil taking upwind, it’s extra lift in the vertical just gives you that extra through the tack, try one you’ll see what we mean.
So there you have it what’s that? did we say three kites in one? Well make that four.. and friendlier than the fire from a US AirForce Warthog.
Future C-Shape: True C-kite feel. For snappy turns with a controlled and consistent pull.
CIT Modes: Fully adjustable kite handling characteristics. Wave mode makes the kite turn faster and increases depower, whilst Freestyle increases the trun radius and stabilizes the kite and adds a little extra grunt. The Nexus comes out of bag in the Allround mode that sits nicely between the two
Radical Reaction Tips: C-style shaped wingtips for faster bar response.
3 Strut Light Frame: Super light yet amazingly rigid and durable. Also able to initiate turns faster than a five-strut design important for wave riding
Exotex® Ultra Rigid Dacron: Zero stretch airframe utilising a radical reinforcing thread pattern and protective coating process that allows for a higher pressure with a smaller diameter
Coretex® Triple Ripstop Canopy: Extreme durability and UV protection setting the benchmark for longevity and tear resistance
Surf Profile: Modified camber for improved drifting and balance.
Ultrashort Bridle System: Improved kite feedback.
Instant Relaunch: Reliable water starts in difficult conditions.
Speed Valve 2: The Speed Valve 2 connects directly to any standard 20mm OD twist lock pump hose. The Speed Valve 2 maximizes airflow, minimizes inflation times and noticeably reduces pump pressure. This inflation/deflation system is so good you may even have the energy for an extra trick or two.
Speed Pump System: Fully pumped in no time. Huge air hoses and strut valves allow uninhibited air flow. And when you haven't kited in a few days, every second counts :)
Sensor Bar Ready: For maximum kite feedback and control pair this kite with a Sensor 2 or 2S bar.
6 Year Parts Availability: Core's Industry leading durability is backed by a 6-year replacement parts guarantee
