Say hello to the foiler’s foil kite. Not that kind of foil, but a serious LEI (Leading Edge Inflatable) foil kite that won’t hold you back. The all-new XLITE from our Specialised division is a one strut foil kite that performs exceptionally well with your favourite hydrofoil. Why? Because our development team fused the power of our fantastic Nexus allrounder and the drifting of our unbeatable Section wave kite into a package that’s an honest 20% lighter.
How do we do it?
Mass reduction isn’t easy. So, we experimented with new leading edge materials, new bridles, and one strut designs. After exhaustive R&D, our designers zeroed in on CoreTex for the canopy and as a result new ExoTex Light for the leading edge. Above all CoreTex adds support and power to the one strut canopy. ExoTex Light brings similar strength as our current ExoTex leading edge dacron yet is more than 10% lighter. We developed thinner, anti-snag bridles that further reduce weight and improve water relaunching. No detail was too small likewise too lightweight. Finally, in the end, we hit our 20% mass reduction target.
CORE’s new Sensor 2S Pro Foil bar completes the package.
SLE foil kites are sensitive to heavy kite lines that sag and affect steering. To maximize your XLITE’s performance, we recommend our new Sensor 2S Pro Foil bar. Firstly it comes with a shorter all carbon bar in 39/45cm width and super adjustable lines that are 20% thinner. Thinner lines also improve water relaunching in marginal conditions. Furthermore the foil bar comes with 22m Tectanium lines (16m+2m+4m) that are rated for 300+kg. Moreover, additional 3m extensions are found in the bar bag for those who prefer longer lines.
