Core XR has been one of the best big air kites on the market for years. With the new Core XR8 kite, Core raises the bar again in the field of high performance, big air and freeride. To get straight to the point when it comes to upgrades: the Core XR8 has a new Dacron material on the leading edge. The new ExoTex®2 Dacron material is ultra-rigid and robust.
The upgrade to ExoTex®2 has allowed Core to upgrade the entire frame of the XR8. Because the new Dacron material is stiffer, Core has been able to reduce the diameter of the LE and struts and maintain the same stiffness of the frame.
Due to a thinner Leading Edge and struts, the XR8 has less air resistance and the XR8 flies easier and faster through the wind window. The thin LE allows the Core XR8 to pull kite loops faster and easily rise above you to sweep you up with a smooth down loop and land like a feather.
The characteristic 5-strut frame of the XR8 has been retained, as has the CoreTex®2 triple ripstop canopy.
The unique pulley bridle system with CIT modes allows you to adjust the character of the XR8. In addition, this pulley bridle system ensures that the XR8 has the most optimal angle to the wind so that the XR8 always gives you maximum lift.
The confidence that all of those features of the Core XR8 will give you in extreme conditions is unparalleled, you will effortlessly fly through your old height record.
Supreme materials for unparalleled performance.
