Core XR5 LW



CORE knows a little about light wind days. We get our fair share of them in summer. And when it happens, we also get excited. Yes, excited! With the biggest lineup of lightwind gear on the planet, we always have gear that gives us big smiley faces. So you can imagine how pumped we are about releasing the marlin of lightwind kites, the shiny, new XR5 LW!
For its size, the XR5 LW edition has the speed and agility of a much smaller kite. Proud owners will be collecting many first-on-the-water trophies and will enjoy cruising in cleaner air upwind from the pack. So how is this possible? The XR5 LW’s DNA is packed with innovative technology like ExoTex and Intelligent Arc that supercharges its performance. CORE’s exclusive ExoTex dacron, for example, improves airflow and flight stability. And Intelligent Arc adds massive wind range. Try the new XR5 LW at your local local CORE retailer and it will reward you with snappy turns and endless smiles. And just like the marlin, this speedster comes in black or original, awesome white.

Delta Bow Shape

The XR5 LW incorporates the concave trailing edge of a traditional bow kite and swept back wings of a delta kite. Our airfoil is engineered to rip upwind when underpowered, boost bigger on demand and get you planing first! You will see major changes in the XR5’s tip geometry and shape for even more control in the air and on the water.

5 Strut Frame

This kind of light wind muscle needs five struts. The rigid, five strut exoskeleton frame is a critical component in the LW’s design to stabilize the additional power created by the larger wingspans. The struts feature new geometry and improved segment stitching that yields better strength, stiffness, and connection to the canopy without increasing its mass.


Speed Pump System

Supersonic single point inflation. We improved the strut hose connection points to make air flow even faster into the struts. And when you haven’t kited in a few days, every second counts 🙂
