Bestseller. Test winner. World record holder.
Our biggest challenge in updating a kite like our bestseller is not changing something that ain't broken. When we design a signature feel into our kites, it should continue from one generation to the next. Our customers agree and tell us they appreciate it when we don't mess with the original formula. We listened and built a kite you're gonna want to upgrade to.





Starship XR6 is ready for launch.
Say hello to the new XR6. Our latest from the 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 measurable weight saving and handling upgrades.

Calling all astronauts, T minus 3 to liftoff.
Say hello to ridiculous hangtime. The XR's linear responsiveness continues to deliver effortless cruising, record-breaking hangtime, and super smooth landings. After six generations, we've dialed in the characteristics regular kiters and astronauts-in-training seek. Like prodigious power. Unbelievable depower. And precise control on the water and in the air.

Rocketship scientist stuff inside.
Our rocketship scientist 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 grunt) required a small adjustment to the CIT bridle points to add a little more power steering. Be the rocketship test pilot you've always wanted to be. And launch the cosmic XR6 at a CORE demo day or visit your nearest CORE retailer.

Did you hear about Maarten and Ross-Dillon?
Maarten Haeger and Ross-Dillon Player went interstellar sending their XRs. Maarten's vacation in Cape Town turned surreal when he smashed the 30m barrier with an amazing ten storey high jump on January 2nd, 2019. Congrats, Maarten and Ross-Dillon on your amazing space travel. Now, it's your turn to break some personal bests with the new XR6.

XR6 LW. A kiter's Space Shuttle.
We've all experienced those days when the wind teases us. You wonder, is it enough to go out? Take the guesswork out with the XR6 LW, your lightwind rocket. It inherits all the power and range of the legendary XR6 while receiving measurable weight saving upgrades. We could go on, but we prefer that you find out for yourself how stellar the new XR6 LW performs.

Sizes: 5.0 | 6.0 | 7.0 | 8.0 | 9.0 | 10.0 | 11.0 | 12.0 | 13.5 | LW 15.0 | LW 17.0 | 19.0

Two colors: "BrightWhite10" and "TechBlack10"

Those are just rumors, as far as I remember, I saw on this forum. It would be great as core is the only company with non standard safety.
I hope someone could confirm/deny it ;) or hint us :P

Someone should ask Ruben about bars with new systems...

I can't see Core coming out with anything unless it's been really tried and tested thoroughly and isn't the whole industry's bars being reviewed at the moment for ISO testing, didn't I read that somewhere?

Yeah, or that other guy that somehow managed to faulty assemble his release and had it open up on him mid-air. Can't remember the brand...
