Take a look at the new Core XR7 LW Kitesurfing Kite at S2AS!

High Performance Freeride+ | Freestyle | Wave

Everyone in kiting has experienced those days when the wind just tempts us. The XR7 LW takes out the guesswork of whether or not you can ride, because you with this kite you most certainly can!

More muscle, less weight! This is the new XR7 LW. The trusty lightwind performer that brings out the best of you. The XR7 LW inherits all the power and ridiculous wind range of the legendary XR7 while receiving noticeable weight-saving upgrades like ExoTex Light struts and leading edge. And Core swapped out the canopy material for CoreTex 2.0 that gives the XR7 LW more punch.

With over fourteen years of development and many hundreds of prototypes tested in order to develop the Core XR's signature ride, the 7th model in the series is an astounding feat of engineering. Core will never realise a new version of a kite until they are absolutely certain that they have made the considerable improvements necessary to warrant replacing one of their kites, hence why there is often over 2 years between releases which also ensures that any Core kitesurfing kite will also hold a greater monetary value!

Moreover, Frank Ilfrich, Core's head designer, knows how important it is not to lose the DNA that made the XR series what it is today and his team has succeeded again. The XR's linear responsiveness continues to deliver effortless cruising, record-breaking hangtime, and super smooth landings.

The XR7 LW’s DNA is packed with innovative technology like CoreTex 2.0, ExoTex Light, and Intelligent Arc that supercharges its performance. CoreTex 2.0 improves tear resistance, durability, and most importantly flight stability. CORE’s exclusive ExoTex Light Dacron reduces leading edge weight while maintaining its shape in gusts. And Intelligent Arc massively expands its wind range. We could go on, but we prefer that you find out for yourself how you and your squadron can rule the light wind skies with the XR7 LW.

The Bridle connection points and Strut geometry have been revised, small but crucial adjustments allow for even more control in high end, higher airspeed and better upwind capabilities, more pop and faster spin!

The XR's legendary linear responsiveness continues to deliver effortless cruising, record-breaking hangtime, and super smooth landings. After seven generations, Core have dialed in the characteristics most kiters are looking for. Prodigious power. Unbelievable depower. And precise control on the water as in the air.

Core's proven fabrics – CoreTex and ExoTex – are exclusively used on the canopy and leading edge. Lead designer, Frank Ilfrich, went over every small detail and found weight savings in the leading edge, extra speed in the canopy, and efficiency improvements to our Speed Pump System. Frank and his team modified the strut curves to extract more stability especially when powered. The additional strut rigidity (and low-end grunt) required a small adjustment to the CIT bridle points to add a little more power steering. 

Lastly, it is always important to remember that Core holds stock of all spare parts for an industry-leading six years so that if the worst might ever happen to your new XR7 Kite you can rest easy knowing that Core will be able to help you out!

XR7 sports more precise flight control and a new lighter build. After six years, Core's signature canopy material receives a major upgrade. CoreTex 2.0 now features massively improved tear resistance in both directions, weight savings making the kite almost 10% lighter, and a new emulsion that improves flight, durability, and longevity. New Exotex Light struts, iterational shape, and bridle improvements have allowed Core to make the XR7 more turny and playful than ever.

Key Features:

Delta Bow Shape: The XR6 curves with its concave trailing edge into a classic bow shape, with swept tips show genes of the Delta shape. This creates a greater depower and full power for better boosting, upwindability and earlier planing. Further improvements have allowed for even more pop and higher airspeeds.

5 Strut Frame: Lightwind kites require a stable screen in order to quickly gain reliable flow and propulsion. The XR6 Lw relies upon the tried and tested 5-Strut design for a stronger, stiffer and all-round more dynamic profile. Having been redesigned for the XR6 the struts have new geometry and seam guide, for more control, lift and hangtime without increasing the overall weight

CIT Modes: Allows the kitesurfer to adapt the kite to their riding preferences, with three different modes: Wave, Freestyle and Allround, for optimal revving and steering forces

Exotex® Slim Struts: Zero stretch airframe utilising a radical reinforcing thread pattern and protective coating process that allows for a higher pressure with a smaller diameter

Coretex® Light: Exclusive to Core this ripstop material is a lighter weight fabric which provides incredible breaking strength and tear resistance

Ultralight Wingtips: ExoTex Dacron provides weight saving on the leading and trailing edge whilst protecting trhe areas that come into contact with beach

Intelligent Arc: Designed to anticipate your desires in the air, by changing the projected area more up to more than 10%, pull on the bar and the kite spreads out its tips like wings, push it away and the kite pulls back in. Allowing the XR6 LW to seamlessly transition from big air boosting machine to precision turning instrument

Short Bridle System: Allows the XR6 LW to respond to the riders control impulses in a flash, resulting in perfectly linear depower, extremely dynamic flight and turning characteristics

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 :)

Instant Relaunch: Reliable water starts in difficult conditions.

Sensor Bar Ready: For maximum kite feedback and control pair this kite with a Sensor 3 or 3 Pro Bar

6 Year Parts Availability: Core's Industry leading durability is backed by a 6-year replacement parts guarantee
