Core Kites News:
New Core Pump 2.0 released
CORE Kiteboarding completely redesigns the underappreciated
kite pump. Although our shiny new black pump features a longer
barrel, ergonomic hand grips, a single/double power stroke
switch and a digitally calibrated pressure gauge, its biggest
innovation hides inside. Internal pump friction is virtually
eliminated and the “Sand Guard” air filter prevents internal
kite damage from sand inhalation.
Although our kites do not need an adapter, we included one
anyways for those “other” kites. The new CORE Pump 2.0 is now
available for EUR 49.90 at your local retailer.
Key technical details:
1. No strain pumping
Save your energy for the water. Innovative materials, seals
and piston coatings have virtually created a frictionless
pump. We even increased the diameter of the hose outlet to
increase airflow and reduce pump strain.
2. Sand Guard
Sand belongs on the beach, not in your kite. So we built a
foam air inlet filter into the handle. Why, you ask? To
prevent sneaky sand from damaging your kite bladders and
reducing pump efficiency.
3. Single to double stroke inflation switch
More pressure with the turn of a knob. The last few pumps are
always the hardest with a 2 way pump. So we decided to give
you the option to switch from traditional double stroke to
single stroke pumping for the last bit of air.
4. Digitally calibrated pressure gauge
Perfect pressure every time without guessing. The new
digitally calibrated pressure gauge has a simple colour coded
scale to make precise inflation a breeze.
5. Longer barrel, longer stroke for more air volume
We extended the barrel a few centimeters from the previous
model to provide a more upright pumping posture. The
additional length also increases pump volume with each stroke.
Your back will thank you.
6. Ergonomic grips
Our longer, wider ergonomic grips make pumping a breeze. The
grips contour to your palm and fingers so you can leverage
your body weight without leaving marks.
7. Heavy duty pump tether with a nifty hook
Pumps are often neglected. So we built our new pump to last.
We even doubled the thickness of the tether and installed an
oversized hook. Because we understand.
Finally, a pump made for real life.
