INTRODUCING THE LONG-AWAITED CORE XR8.
Core’s ultimate big-air machine. You may be wondering: what are the key changes compared to the XR7?
The use of new materials has reduced the kite’s weight, enabling excellent performance in various conditions, including kiteloops, light wind, and overall kite handling. The entire kite frame is precisely calibrated to allow for a smaller leading edge and strut diameter, resulting in more efficient loops with smoother and earlier catches. The optimized leading edge diameter increases the kite’s speed and enhances the overall flying experience.
The use of stiffer materials in both the fabric and the leading edge and struts ensures the kite maintains its shape for a sporty and direct feel. Additionally, the XR8 will feature a fresh color alongside the familiar black or white.
Thanks to ExoTex 2, the kite has 80% more tear resistance, while CoreTex 2 provides an impressive 300%. This ensures that the XR8 delivers first-class performance in every session.
With the XR8, you can reach new heights. The kite ranks among the top kites in the market when it comes to the big air discipline, allowing you to achieve the highest altitudes and best performances! The ultra-stiff 5-strut frame in a Deltabow shape enables breathtaking jumps and the longest hangtime. Experience an unprecedented level of comfort and control with the effortless and forgiving handling of the XR8.
Explosive jumps and superior upwind performance are guaranteed with this kite. Thanks to the significantly stiffer ExoTex 2 material, the entire kite frame is tuned, allowing for the smaller diameter of the leading edge and struts.
