HIGH PERFORMANCE FREERIDE | FREESTYLE | WAVE
Meet the new mega-boosting, addictive XR5 that delivers more hangtime than you can imagine. And did we mention the pillow-soft landings? This performance freerider has the goods for all your adventures. On the lake. Or on the Atlantic. It rips upwind, handles gusts (and lulls) like a boss and still retains the legendary XR character, comfort, and range that owners rave about.
CORE’s product development team brought in former WOO jump world record holder Josh Emanuel to help make the XR5 what it is today. The South African worked tirelessly to fine-tune the kite’s incredible lift and hangtime.
With its new leading edge, strut, and wingtip design, you’ll find the 5th generation XR delivers unmatched control in the gusts and power in the lulls for relaxed cruising, explosive boosts, and sublime wave riding. But don’t take our word, though, and decide for yourself.
“I feel super confident jumping over 25m high with the XR5 even in difficult wind conditions,” comments Josh, “and its mind blowing boost is designed for breaking records.” Looks like Josh is on a mission to crush his WOO records again...go get ‘em Josh!
ExoTex Ultra Rigid Dacron – Extreme canopy stability and control.
So what’s our secret sauce? We start with a modified delta bow shape, and we spend the next 10 years improving every minute detail. Details like our Intelligent Arc bridle system that adjusts the wingspan, and massively increases wind range. And ExoTex Ultra Rigid Dacron, our exclusive airframe material that seriously increases canopy rigidity and aerodynamics without adding a stitch in weight.
ExoTex’s radial reinforcements not only give the XR5’s airframe its ridiculous stability but it also eliminates the dreaded leading edge seam bulge. New riders to old Pros will appreciate the rock solid canopy in the surf and on the flats.
