Core Kites Presents: Sensor Pro Bar System

Postby Toby » Mon Jul 28, 2014 3:04 pm

Core Kites News:

Sensor Pro Bar System

CORE-SENSOR-PRO-Bar.jpg
This bar, is by far the lightest bar on the market. As the innovators and most experienced manufacturer of carbon kite boards we’ve used all our innovation and experience to use this, exceptionally light and stable material, in the manufacture of a new bar system. The SENSOR PRO bar is a result of three years development and while basically the same as our SENSOR 2 bar it differs significantly in the choice of material:

The lightest bar on the market allowing extremely direct feedback and steering of the kite.

210g CARBON BAR

The lightest bar on the market allowing extremely direct feedback and steering of the kite.

CARBON FIBRE BAR

The unibody bar of the SENSOR PRO is manufactured from an ultra stiff Carbon and Titanium compound. The weight is reduced to the magical 200 gram mark, with equivalent breaking strength and even higher stiffness.

TECTANIUM® LINES

10 percent lighter and thinner,
50 percent higher break load,
400 percent higher stretch resistance!

TECTANIUM® LINES

The brand new TECTANIUM® lines are high end high tech. They were exclusively developed for CORE by a renowned German rope manufacturer. The all-black line sets are slightly thinner and 10 percent lighter, whilst boasting a 50% higher break load. The improved stretch resistance results in unequalled precision and direct steering feeling, which is especially evident in waves or when pulling off kite loops. It also enables explosive, and even higher jumps. The lines can effortlessly be adapted to varying lengths: 24, 22, 20 and 18 meter. Our TECTANIUM® lines also score highly in durability, thanks to the special coating process which results in the lines being considerably more resistant to wear and tear.

Further more the SENSOR PRO Bar boasts the same innovation
and proven features of the SENSOR 2 bar system:

TITANIUM CORE

A high tech bar with a strong heart. In the middle of the Unibody bar is the secret to it's strength. Thanks to a specially constructed titanium insert (level 5 - the highest grade) the SENSOR 2 is able to boast extreme break loads and stiffness whilst being as light as a feather. These attributes also result in the crisp flying feel.

All segments can be freely combined enabling the SENSOR PRO bar system to effortlessly be adapted to varying line lengths: 24, 22, 20 and 18 meter.

VARIO LINES

One Bar, four line lengths. The SENSOR PRO bar system allows four different line lengths to be attached to only one bar. Instead of the standard 24 meter lines, the bar is equipped with VARIO LINES, also manufactured to the highest German manufacturing standards. The triple segmented line sets consists of an 18 meter base length with two and four meter line extensions. All segments can be freely combined enabling the SENSOR PRO bar system to effortlessly be adapted to varying line lengths: 24, 22, 20 and 18 meter. The SENSOR 2+ bar therefore always delivers the right line length – whether it’s freeride, big-air, wave, freestyle or killer kite-loops.

EXCHANGEABLE BAR INSERTS

Exchanging made easy. The depower lines are threaded through the middle of the bar by channel formed inserts. Their special material acts like a lubricant and prevents line wear and tear. These inserts are easily and cheaply exchanged without any tools.

SUPPORTED SINGLE FRONTLINE SAFETY (SSF)

The best of three worlds. The SUPPORTED SINGLE FRONTLINE SAFETY combines the advantages of single line safety, double frontline and fifth line – without inheriting the disadvantages of each system.

When you release the kite it will blow out without pressure on only one front line whilst the second front line leads the kite into a stable, very comfortable and especially safe re-launch position. This is a distinctive advantage for hard freestyle training or in the waves and will also save beginners and intermediates a lot of time and effort.

100% SELF UNSWIVELLING

Always works. The self-unswivelling of the CORE bars has been setting high standards for many years: it sorts the lines in any and every situation without any issues. CORE has always designed the lines to twist and cross below the bar. When you pull the bar down the lines are left with little option but to sort themselves again.

ROTOR QUICKRELEASE

So easy – just turn. The release mechanism, which can be turned in either direction, allows for intuitive emergency release in any situation. It has been proven that the turning motion allows for more force to be exerted. In addition to this, and unlike conventional systems, you don’t need to fight against the water flow. The ROTOR system not only more than fulfills the highest standards but it also sets new standards in safety, as regularly proven by independent testing.

Another tangible advantage: Compared to push systems, the ROTOR quickrelease has a noticeably compacter and lighter design. At the same depower length the adjuster will be closer to the riders reach – not only a comfort plus but also resulting in better safety in critical situations.

SENSOR ADJUSTER

Fine trimming. The forces acting on the cleat adjuster are reduced to a quarter by an additional loop over a metal pulley. The result is an exceptionally smooth and precise operation of the adjuster, even in the upper wind limits. And the levels of comfort get even better: the depower throw can be easily adjusted to suit the size of the rider by simply moving the cleat adjuster.

SPLICE ENDS

Durability by following sage advice. A small but refined detail of the SENSOR PRO TECTANIUM® lines are the spliced line ends. They aren’t simply finished off and secured with a parallel knit, but rather eloquently spliced before being stitched. This guarantees higher strength and better aerodynamics – laying out of the lines is also noticeably smoother.

VARIO WIDTH

All kite sizes respond to one bar. Thanks to the ability to easily adjust the knot of the steering lines at the end of the bar the technical bar size can be extended by six centimeters from 46 to 52 centimeters. With this the SENSOR 2 bar covers the full kite spectrum from 5 to 19 square meters.

SHORT SAFETY LEASH

Extra short equals extra safe. All CORE Bar systems are equipped, as standard, with the SHORT SAFETY LEASH. The leash is only 50 centimeters and the release can be found at the front of the harness – perfectly placed for easy handling and in the riders viewing angle. The release mechanism stays attached to the kiters harness. Studies have shown that only a small percentage of kiters regularly ride unhooked – nevertheless you’ll find lots of long leashes on the water – pure cool factor with high levels of risk. Longer leashes are not only less safe when released, they also regularly get entangled in all and sundry material.

EVA GRIP

Get a grip. Thanks to the stronger 0.5 millimeter EVA-coating and more defined profiling, the SENSOR PRO bar offers noticeably more grip; during longer session the levels of comfort will definitely be appreciated.


Optional SENSOR Accessories

PRO Loop/Stick Set

Designed for pros who are constantly riding unhooked. Makes hooking back in easier, but also extends the distance to the adjuster.

PRO Leash

The PRO Leash enables unhooked rotations i.e. handle pass jumps. The leash is noticeably longer than the standard short safety leash and is probably the only leash on the market where the release mechanism can’t get caught under the harness hook.

That's likely including the roughly 20% VAT, so actual price would be 499E or $670USD :)

Too rich for me but I am sure they will sell well only because they are expensive.

Where can we see a video of the safety release system in action?... I can't quite picture the position of the kite on the water, with one front line at "100%" and the other at "50%" release-length. For instance, does the kite do what the "mini-fifth" systems do, like the old Cabrinha IDS?

From the description, it doesn't sound like it is meant to "flag-out", but rather is meant to assume a "ready-to-relaunch" position. Is there a way to completely kill the potential power of the kite, like you might want for a self-rescue?

As expected, I see a lot of innovation from Core.

Love to see some Utubes of the kite system in action.

This is one of the rare times that we have seen a manufacturer actually recommend the use of their bar with other manufacturer's kites. A number of kites are listed as being compatible with the bar system.

$499 at Real. Pretty much on par with all the other ~$450 bars. Still WAY too much for a stick and some strings, but they all are. Probably around $375 on the street.

Lots of marketing bullshit, as always...

They make up non existing problemns, to create not needed fixes, just to be different. Make it expensive, add some marketing blabla (tectanium really? :') ) and people will buy it.

I sure hope it says "Wrong Way" on the back of that bar, because black and white is very confusing. I at least need some red coloring in my left hand.
