This 3 strut, delta bow inspired design lets you be you. A kite that gives you the freedom to surf, play or shred In the waves, Or on the slick, with the comfort of your favorite sneakers. The precision of an F-15, and waterstarts of a kite half its size, the Free will be your first choice for short sessions, wicked weekends or your next round the world adventure! Express yourself with CORE’s newest addition to its legendary Universal Series of high-performance all-rounders. And experience the awesomeness of this wave, freeride, and hooked-in style master!
3 Strut Light Frame: Less is more. The Free LW inherits the GTS’s 3 Strut Light Frame concept which promotes more twist than a similar kite with five struts. More twist initiates faster turns and bigger grins. In addition, the reduced kite weight improves slack line drifting.
ExoTex Slim Struts: Slim is good. The LW versions sport thinner struts than their smaller siblings. Thinner struts are more flexible which delivers better reflexivity and, therefore, quicker turn ins. Slim struts save weight. And finally, thinner struts improve aerodynamics thereby allowing the kite to point higher.
Ultra Light Wingtips: The new Exotex Dacron gave our engineers the freedom to redesign the wingtips with less material without compromising durability. Less material equals less swing weight. Less swing weight means faster turns.
Speed Profile: The Free LW edition incorporates a flatter wing profile to reduce wind resistance and unwanted lateral pressure. A more efficient and aerodynamic kite profile can generate more apparent wind and thereby create more lift and power. Fly faster. And fly earlier with the LW edition.
Delta Bow Shape: The best of both worlds. The Free LW is recognized by the classic concave trailing edge of a bow, and the swept back wings with smaller tips of a delta shape. This magic combination maximises depower and control for early planing; upwind performance and, of course, nice hang time. The shape also contributes to CORE’s signature precision, bar feel, relaunch-ability, and turn characteristics.
Intelligent Arc: Intelligent Arc is a bridle configuration perfected on the XR series that modifies the airfoil on demand in a linear and direct way. Like a bird that spreads its wings to generate more lift, the Free LW 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.
UltraShort Bridle System: Say goodbye to bridle induced bowties with our shortest LW bridle system ever. The new configuration improves feedback so you can better sense your kite position. For precise, tight but not overpowering, pivotal turns. In the larger kite sizes, this reflexivity increases even more so. Say hello to the un-bowtie-able Free LW.
ExoTex: Made in Germany. And exceptionally durable. ExoTex’s 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.
CoreTex Light: Exclusive to CORE. Just a little lighter. Our, industry leading, ripstop canopy fabric is just as durable as the original CoreTex yet sets new benchmarks in breaking strength, tear resistance, longevity and UV protection. Feel the tight, crisp signature only a CoreTex Light kite can deliver.
Speed Valve 2: No special hose adapter to misplace here! The reinforced Speed Valve 2 connects directly to any standard 20mm OD twist lock pump hose. The Speed Valve 2 maximizes air flow, minimizes inflation times and noticeably reduces pump pressure. This inflation/deflation system is so good you may even leave your electric pump at home.
Core Intelligent Trim System: Kite speed and bar pressure are a matter of choice. Your choice. With 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. But don’t worry, the kite comes out of the bag ready to fly so you can play with the adjustments later.
Speed Pump System: First one on the water wins! We installed big strut distribution hoses and designed more aerodynamic strut valves to make air flow faster into the struts. We did this all for you because we know how much you enjoy inflating your kite.
Instant Auto Relaunch: Dropping this kite won’t raise your pulse. Just give the bar a little tug when the Free LW hits the water and watch it drift into a perfect relaunch position where it’s ready to safely pop back into the air. Wave riders will appreciate how easily the kite releases from the water when time is of the essence. So go ahead and try that strapless 360, you know your Free LW has your back.
