CORE XR6 KITE


HIGH PERFORMANCE FREERIDE+ | FREESTYLE | WAVE

Say hello to the new XR6! The latest from Core's Universal+ Series is engineered to perform in all conditions and disciplines. It inherits the power and unbelievable wind range of the legendary XR5 while receiving weight saving and handling upgrades. 

Fourteen years of development, hundreds of prototypes, and many inhospitable test sessions have gone into the XR6's signature ride. Frank Ilfrich, Core's head designer, knows how important it is not to lose the DNA that makes the XR 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.

After six generations, they've dialled in the characteristics  Like prodigious power. Unbelievable depower. And precise control on the water and in the air. With the same tread depth in the centre as the XR5, but slightly flatter on the outside. For this purpose, 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 XR6 continues with Core's highly successful 5-strut, Delta Bow shape that isn't just a fan favourite; it also breaks records. Earlier this year, both Maarten Haeger und Ross-Dillon Player busted through the 30m barrier on their XR's. A feat that was previously considered impossible.

Core's proven fabrics – CoreTex 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 lowend grunt) required a small adjustment to the CIT bridle points to add a little more power steering. 

Now, it's your turn to break some personal bests with the new XR6.

KEY FEATURES:

Delta Bow Shape: The XR6 curves with its concave trailling edge into a clasic bow shape, with swept tips show genes of the Delta shape. This creates a greater depower and full power for better boosting, upwindabilty and earlier planing. Further improvements have allowed for even more pop and higher airspeeds.

5 Strut Frame: Utilising this new refined and even stiffer strut geometry, means an ultra stable frame resulting significantly less deformation and more power on demand

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 adds a little extra grunt. The XR6 comes in the All-Round mode combining the best of both options with its well balanced trim. Experience optimum turning pleasure and 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 XR6 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® Triple Ripstop Canopy: Extreme durability and UV protection setting the benchmark for longevity, tear resistance and breaking load whilst remaining significantly lighter than some over brands

Intelligent Arc: Designed to anticipate your desires in the air, by changing the projected area more 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 riders 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

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 air flow. 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 2 or 2S bar.

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

30-Jan-2019 Product:

The build quality and materials used here seem to be the very best, certainly compared to my old kites. Haven't bought a new kite for a few years, but very pleased with the quality as these are expensive kites. Got my first session on the Core XR5 today and love it, highly recommend! The Core XR5 is now iconic when it comes to big air, having just set the new WOO world record in early 2019. From beginner to advanced freeriding, this kite will perform brilliantly. The very best in quality and German precision engineering.
11-Jan-2018 Product:

Wow! Had my first session on the 9m Core XR5 today. Beat my WOO record on my 3rd jump! This kite is insane, everything I was told it would be, it delivers in buckets. Not entirely convinced on the bar, feels very lightweight than what I was used to, but time will tell. German engineering, precise, efficient and superbly built....need we say more?! This is a Big Air weapon which doesn't take professional skills and timing to go big.  The Core XR5 is building a huge reputation as being a brilliant piece of kit, and rightly so!

Please wait...
