Core XR-5 Kite 2017 (17) Water Relaunchable SLE Kite >>
The new Core Riot XR5 is the new generation of the cross ride kite with even more hang time, power and agility for freerdiing and riding in the waves.
From freeriding to surf the 5th generation XR delivers control in the gusts and power in the lulls. Your ticket to relaxed cruising, explosive boosts or even sublime wave riding. Experience for yourself the XR’s ability to transform to any style or riding level.
The XR5 is designed to perform in all conditions and disciplines. Like the gusty conditions typically found on big inland lakes. Or fast oceanfront beach breaks. The XR5 is also designed to excel in one area, and for the XR5, it’s power freeriding, a catch-all that includes huge airtime and hooked-in freestyle mastery.
Although CORE’s engineers amped up the kite’s big air talents, the legendary XR comfort and character remain intact. The XR-5 kite continues to be an excellent choice for kiters of all levels. Beginners will appreciate the reliable sheet-and-go functionality, and experienced riders will love the XR’s huge range and extended hang times.
You are free to do what ever style you want with the Core Riot XR-5!
ExoTex Dacron incorporates a new vertical thread structure and emulsion (protective coating) process. The stronger fabric allows Core to improve airflow by reducing leading edge and strut diameters.
Despite reducing strut diameters, ExoTex Dacron improves kite stiffness, flight stability, rider feedback, snappy pivot turns and explosive lift.
Core Tex Ripstop:
The fabric exclusively developed for CORE is protected and strengthened with three different coating processes.
In this way CoreTex® sets new records in load tests, tear resistance, longevity and UV protection. This is noticeable during your session thanks to the crispness experienced whilst flying your kite and another reason why CoreTex® was obvious choice for the Riot XR-5.
Optimised Aerodynamic and Intelligent Arc:
The inspiration behind the Intelligent ARC
comes from nature: As a bird is able to glide without flapping
its wings, for long durations of time, so to the Riot XR5
spreads its wings when the bar is pulled in.
Core Intelligent System:
Thanks to the CIT there is no riding style or level that the Riot XR-5 cannot be customized to.
The turning speed can be adjusted from “super fast" and "fast" to "medium". The kite feedback levels can be set between “direct” and "medium" to “super direct”. The bar pressure is adjustable between "super light" and "light" to "medium". You can customize the settings to suit within seconds.
Speed Valve 2:
Take a deep breath in, then out. The Core Riot XR-5 valve will accept all standard pump hoses without attachments.
This provides the SPEED VALVE 2 with the biggest, physically possible, flow of air. It’s simply not possible to pump up a kite with less effort and in less time. Even deflating the kite is noticeably quicker and easier too.
Core Riot XR-5 LW 15m, 17m and 19m:
The Riot XR5 LW (Lightwind Edition) allows you to enjoy even more days on the water. In addition to improved light wind performance the Riot XR5 LW stands for agility and pure ride joy, even when the wind is blowing at less than 10 knots.
The new Short Bridle System allows for a very
direct bar feeling and dynamic feedback when steering the
kite. This enables real kite loops, which were previously
unheard of during light wind sessions.
Thanks to its dynamic properties, the Riot XR5 LW makes you feel as if you were flying a noticeably smaller kite, whilst topping it off by being an absolute Hang-time Machine.
The LW version of the XR-5 has a much flatter flight profile, allowing the kite to accelerate faster and produce its own wind, which is converted into additional propulsion. This design also allows for reduced wind resistance and unwanted lateral tension resulting in both Lightwinds going extremely well and effectively upwind. The turning speed of the XR5 can be adjusted at the kite tips. This trimming is easy and intuitive; you simply move a little knot.
The XR-5 Lightwind has thinner tubes than the smaller kites in the XR5 range and benefits from this in three different ways. Firstly the tubes have been designed using less material, so therefore less weight. Secondly the tubes are thinner making the kites more flexible, which in turn allows for a quicker response time to a rider's command and thirdly the tubes have been redesigned and adapted to have an optimum flight profile, which in turn lets you go upwind even earlier and effectively.
Core have reduced the heavier Dacron material to just a few areas in the tips, a small area behind the leading edge and also on the trailing edge. Basically all areas that are considered to need special protection during launching and landing.
