New times are coming to Core and yes i personally think Core are late to the party with Wing foiling, The new watersport that infuses both Windsurfing and Kiteboarding into one sport is a total game changer for a lot of riders.
As we see less and less 12m Kites being sold and more people taking up Wing Foiling for the lighter conditions what is possible with this new sport nobody yet knows but we we do know is that the Wing foiling progression is just starting.
So where does Wing Foiling fit in with Core Kiteboarding?
We all know Core like to do things right the first time, They never rush to the market with product that hasn't been fully tested or by using inferior materials they are German after all.
So S2AS have been testing the Full Wing Program that Core have just release and wow! its almost like Core have just sat back and watched all the problems with the equipment as the sport has evolved over the last few years and said "Right now it's our turn" Because the range is not only stunning to look at but it's so good in so many ways.
After an extensive development period August 16th is the release date and we have stock now at S2AS - 01202 738448
Below is a run down of the Wing program from Core Kiteboarding.
Core XC Wing:
Power, speed and manoeuvrability are all perfectly balanced in the moderate aspect ratio profile that's been finely tuned to keep both front and flow stalls to a minimum. The XC not only turns playfully, it also provides instant forward drive thanks to the twist allowance in the center strut and tips. A perfect balance between drive and agility. The reactive relationship between stiffness and flex is forged from the ExoTex2 material in the leading edge and center strut. The low-stretch and highly durable CoreTex2 cloth helps ensure the XC delivers liquid smooth and linear power development. Optimal cloth tension and minimal drag helps generate maximum power for a quick take-off and then offers precise control in flight as you simply let your senses take control.
