Core XR7 Kitesurfing Kite

High-Performance Freeride+ | Big Air | Freestyle | Wave

Core never do anything by halves, 

The XR7 kite from Core is a team favourite here at S2AS, It boosts like no other, if you are getting a solid 8mtr in height jump on the Core XR7 and you will easily add a meter or two just from the change of kite. But the real boost comes in when you master the timing on the XR7 Kite, That's when you really feel the huge difference the Core XR7 delivers.

The latest kiting innovations from the industry-leading brand Core are put together in their brand new kitesurfing kite the XR7! Part of Core's Universal+ Series the XR7 has a unique design that allows it to perform in all conditions and disciplines. Carrying across the incredible power, and the unbelievable wind range the XR series is renowned for, the new XR7 receives some impressive handling upgrades allowing it to turn smoother, be more playful in the air and now boost even higher!

With over fourteen years of development and many hundreds of prototypes tested in order to develop the Core XR's signature ride, the 7th model in the series is an astounding feat of engineering. Core will never realise a new version of a kite until they are absolutely certain that they have made the considerable improvements necessary to warrant replacing one of their kites, hence why there is often over 2 years between releases which also ensures that any Core kitesurfing kite will also hold a greater monetary value!

Moreover, Frank Ilfrich, Core's head designer, knows how important it is not to lose the DNA that made the XR series 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.

XR7 sports more precise flight control and a new lighter build. After six years, Core's signature canopy material receives a major upgrade. cortex 2.0 now features massively improved tear resistance in both directions, weight savings making the kite almost 10% lighter, and a new emulsion that improves flight, durability, and longevity. The overall lighter construction is also due to the ExoTex Light Struts, a marginally lighter canopy along with the iterational shape and bridle improvements.

The Bridle connection points and Strut geometry have been revised, small but crucial adjustments allow for even more control in high end, higher airspeed and better upwind capabilities, more pop and faster spin!

The XR's legendary linear responsiveness continues to deliver effortless cruising, record-breaking hangtime, and super smooth landings. After seven generations, Core have dialed in the characteristics most kiters are looking for. Prodigious power. Unbelievable depower. And precise control on the water as in the air.

Core's proven fabrics – CoreTex 2.0 and ExoTex – are exclusively used on the canopy and leading edge. Lead designer, 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 low-end grunt) required a small adjustment to the CIT bridle points to add a little more power steering. 

Lastly, it is always important to remember that Core holds stock of all spare parts for an industry-leading six years so that if the worst might ever happen to your new XR7 Kite you can rest easy knowing that Core will be able to help you out! 

While newer kiters will enjoy the ease and large range of use, more experienced kitesurfers will feel much improved inflight stability. What's stopping you from getting out on one the world's best kitesurfing kites, the new Core XR7!

Key Features:

Delta Bow Shape: Incorporating the trailing edge of a traditional bow kite and swept-back wings of a delta kite. Core’s airfoil is designed to charge upwind and get you planing before anyone else! Feel the benefits of the new optimized wing profiles.

5 Strut Frame: Utilising this new refined and even stiffer strut geometry, means an ultra stable frame resulting in significantly less deformation and more power on demand, and a massive improvement to the performance in the upper wind range.

Faster Turning Speed: Now even more agile and responsive, due to finetuning in the bridle points along with rebalanced stiffness produce more steering confidence than ever before

CIT Modes: Fully adjustable kite handling characteristics. Wave mode makes the kite turn faster and increases depower, whilst Freestyle increases the trun radius and stabilizes the kite, and also adds a little extra grunt. The XR7 comes in the All-Round mode combining the best of both options with its well balanced trim. Experience optimum turning pleasure and variable steering forces

Exotex® Ultra Rigid Dacron: Zero stretch airframe that allows for a higher pressure with a smaller diameter. And thanks to the new unique vertical thread system and special coating system, the Leading Edge and all Struts of the XR7 and constructed outstandingly thinly, that is remarkably stiff and sturdy for a kite the runs high, turns defined, lifts explosively and always feels crisp and direct

Coretex® 2.0 Triple Ripstop Canopy: Core’s industry-leading triple ripstop canopy has just gotten even better. A 8% lighter canopy fabric that has hugely improved tear resistance, added stiffness and improved durability. A new coating process aids the stability in higher winds and jumps. CoreTex 2.0 sets the standard in breaking strength, tear resistance, longevity, and UV protection. Feel the crisp signature fabric that is only available with CoreTex.

Exotex® Light Struts: After extensive testing and evaluation Core has replaced the Exotex strut material with Exotex Light, a super tough yet even lighter version of their airframe material. Having already been tested for 2 years, you can be confident in this upgrade and feel a much quicker kite under your control.

Intelligent Arc: Designed to anticipate your desires in the air, by changing the projected area up to more than 10%, pull on the bar and the kite spreads out its tips like wings, push it away and the kite pulls back in. Allowing the XR6 to seamlessly transition from big air boosting machine to precision turning instrument

Short Bridle System: Allows the XR6 to respond to the rider control impulses in a flash, resulting in perfectly linear depower, extremely dynamic flight and turning characteristics

Grintex® Patches: Unbelievably abrasion resistant patches on every segment seam of the leading edge and struts result in a much more durable kite design, meaning fewer worries in less than ideal landing spots

Instant Relaunch: The XR7 is designed to immediately drift into a perfect relaunch position when it hits the water allowing for easy relaunch with just one tig on the line.

Speed Valve 2: The Speed Valve 2 connects directly to any standard 20mm OD twist lock pump hose. The Speed Valve 2 maximizes airflow, minimizes inflation times and noticeably reduces pump pressure. This inflation/deflation system is so good you may even have the energy for an extra trick or two.

Speed Pump System: Fully pumped in no time. Huge air hoses and strut valves allow uninhibited airflow. And when you haven't kited in a few days, every second counts :)

Sensor Bar Ready: For maximum kite feedback and control pair this kite with a Sensor 3 or 3 Pro Bar

6 Year Parts Availability: Core's Industry leading durability is backed by a 6-year replacement parts guarantee
