Core Fusion 5 LW Kitesurfing Board S2AS
Core Fusion 5 LW Kitesurfing Board S2AS

Take a look at the new Core Fusion 5 LW Kitesurfing Board at S2AS!

The all-new Fusion 5 LWs may share the same name as their smaller siblings, but they share little else. Core have learned you simply can't upsize the smaller Fusions. Sit them side by side, and you'll see significant differences between them. That's because Core have tune the LW's specifically for lighter wind conditions.

Since a greater planing surface displaces more water together with the lower speeds achieved in lighter winds; the bottom concave, channel and ‘V’ were reduced by a millimetre. This modification minimizes the water resistance together with the combination of outline and bottom contour, adequate grip to deal with gusts.

Core's 5th generation LWs feature new construction, rails, outline, and hulls. But they still retain the same Cartan carbon that makes these super-light 3kg boards come alive. The most visible difference between their smaller siblings is the unique displacement hump in the middle of the deep vee. Having also added a grab rail for the freestylers. And they improved the channels, edges, and outline for the freeriders.

Fusion 5 LW. Lightwind mission-ready.

Medium Fusion 5 LW (154x46cm):

Unbelievably agile and light on the water. The 154 is a hybrid of class-leading lightwind handling with the freestyle capability of the 145cm. Perfect for anyone needing a confidence boost or heavier riders who enjoy unhooking in lighter winds. 

Large Fusion 5 LW (159x47cm):

The ultimate in early planing, a lightwind rocket with a huge range. Sporting a concave outline, increased flex and square box rails improve upwind tacks by forcing the boad to ride deeper and flatter in the water. Wider tips promoote early planing and keep you going through lulls. The biggest Fusion 5 feels surprisingly small underfoot meaning it can also handle a lot more wind than you would expect!

Technologies:

Cartan® Carbon: CORE's proprietary 30° biaxial carbon fiber weave optimizes torsional and longitudinal flex for a unique riding experience. Effectively this means more flex along the length of the board with less flex across the board (edge to edge) to smoother upwind capability and a more ease in loading up. The high filament count of the carbon also requires less resin meaning a lighter finished product

Unibody Edge: High end racing ski sidewall technology has found it’s way into twintip kiteboards! A more complete foil, carbon and resin process improves the connection between the top and bottom sheets of Cartan carbon for a truly unified construction. Replacing traditional ABS with a new 80 layer laminated, resin-activated strip, that is harder, stiffer and bonds even better, producing improved torsional rigidity as well as a board that is more capable of storing energy before release.

Lighter 3D Wood Core: A powerfully light and marine-grade, laminated wood core. Core have selection the lowest weight laminations before gluing them, to save a 250g of weight that is even stronger tha before. This 3D core gives the board dimensional stability, decay resistance and a dramatically powerful character.

New Multi-Channels: A massive double concave centre channel and smaller outer channel follow the length if the board providing extra depth for the V-Keel and incredible grip/ In addition to the centre channel, Core have added Quattro tip channels. Freestyle kiters can load the board more than ever before, whilst freeriders will enjoy unlimited upwind potential.

Katana Channels: The perfect combo of tip flex and stiffness. Continuing the same contours of the bottom tip channel into the top deck adds stiffness to better store and release energy when loading up the edge.

Beveled Deck: A 6° bevelled deck edge from tip to tip that blends into the Katana channels. This bevel decreases longitudinal flex for more pop, reduced reverse flex and more powerful edging capabilities.

Tucked Under Rails: A tucked under bottom rail between the straps that transitions to a box edge near the outer inserts. From there, the rail thins out to a sharper edge at the tips. The tucked under rail softens the ride and improves water flow, whereas the sharper tip edges add more bite.

LW Tuned V-Shaped Keel: Inspired by the bulbous bow found under container ships, the keel reduces drag in displacement cruise, so the transition to planing is smoother. The deep V-shaped keel along the tips penetrates chops and smoothes your ride.

LW Rocker: The Fusion 5's lightwind rocker leverages its improved Vario rails to deliver unmatched lightwind performance.

48mm G10 Cutback Fins: A perfect balance between tracking and freestyle magic. The impact-resistant G10 fiberglass fins have just the right amount of tracking stability without getting too much in the way of switches
