Bestseller. Test winner. World record holder.
CORE’s signature five strut Delta Bow kite isn’t just a fan favourite and test winner; it also breaks records. Earlier this year, both Maarten Haeger and Ross-Dillon Player busted through the 30m barrier on their XR’s. A feat that was considered impossible was, in fact, possible. We congratulate both for their amazing achievements. Fourteen years of development, hundreds of prototypes, and many inhospitable test sessions have gone into the XR6’s signature ride. Frank Ilfrich, CORE’s head designer, knows how important it is not to lose the DNA that makes the XR 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. Grab your test pilot gear and allow CORE’s perennial bestseller to blast you to the moon metaphorically.
Rocketship scientist stuff inside.
The XR6 continues with its highly successful 5-strut, Delta Bow shape. CORE’s proven fabrics – CoreTex and ExoTex – are exclusively used on the canopy and leading edge. Our rocketship scientist, 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 lowend grunt) required a small adjustment to the CIT bridle points to add a little more power steering.
XR6 LW. It’s windy enough.
We’ve all experienced those days when the wind teases us. You wonder, is it enough to go out? We take the guesswork out with the XR6 LW, a lightwind rocket. It inherits all the power and range of the legendary XR6, while receiving measurable weight saving upgrades like CoreTex Light. We could go on, but we prefer that you find out for yourself how stellar the new XR6 LW performs.
