So you want to be an Astronaut? You're need a Core XR7 then!

NOW LIGHTER AND MORE RESPONSIVE THAN BEFORE THANKS TO NEW FABRICS, THE ALL-NEW CORE XR7 HAS LAUNCHED AND IS LOOKING EXTREMELY GOOD:

What Core Say's about the CORE XR7 KITE:

As a member of the Universal+ Series of kites, the XR7 performs in all conditions and disciplines. And over the past 14 years, these two letters -XR- have become synonymous with legendary big air performance and accessible kiting to all. The good news is that two more years of iterational development have upped the XR’s performance envelope again.

NEW CANOPY FABRIC ADDS MUSCLE

After six years, our signature triple-ripstop canopy material receives a major upgrade. CoreTex 2.0 now features a 300% improved tear resistance in both directions, slight weight savings, and a new emulsion that improves flight, durability, and longevity. A new coating process (emulsion) further stiffens the canopy and increases flight stability.

UP TO 8% LIGHTER

The new XR7 ExoTex Light struts significantly reduce kite weight while still maintaining the XR7’s legendary canopy stability. After extensive evaluation, CORE replaced the ExoTex strut material with ExoTex Light, a super tough yet lighter version of its industry-leading airframe material. It’s been real-world tested for 2 years now so CORE is confident in its durability. Kite cadets will appreciate the XR’s improved waterstarts while foilers and surfers will love the better drifting.

MORE TURNY AND PLAYFUL

The overall lighter construction, ExoTex Light Struts, marginally lighter canopy, and iterational shape and bridle improvements have our team telling us the XR7 is faster and more playful than ever.

XR7 LIGHTWIND EDITIONS RECEIVE MAJOR UPGRADE

The XR7 LW inherits all the power and ridiculous wind range of the legendary XR7 while receiving noticeable weight-saving upgrades like ExoTex Light struts and leading edge. The lighter airframe significantly reduces weight while maintaining that rock-solid feel. The canopy material is also upgraded to CoreTex 2.0 which adds muscle. All in all, kite weight is down. And performance is way up. So, plan your next mission and rule the lightwind skies.
