Nexus 2 seems to be doing everything it says on the tin

Postby CaptainCore » Sat May 30, 2020 10:10 pm

Getting lots of positive feedback from Nexus 2 users, great bar feedback, super flying qualities in iffy wind. great wing tip shape and bounce back relaunch, all in all not much to fault, worth getting a demo if you can.

I have heard that the supported single frontline safety doesn’t work good And the kite has a lot of pageantry after releasing the safety. People are recommending another bar than the original Core

Well you heard wrong, it works just fine, with the old bar or the new. Bar pressure is much improved and variable.

There is a big discussion in German forums for sure. It’s not only the Nexus. The XR in bigger sizes as well.
The problem is that Core don’t have a real single frontline safety. If you use another bar where the bar goes more up to the kite after releasing the problem is solved. The “supported SFS” don’t let the kite flagging out enough.

Never believe BS you read on forums, mostly they are either ill informed riders with not enough experience (other than their keyboard skills) to really be expected to comment accurately, or riders supported by other brands mistakenly thinking they're 'doing their sponsors a favour' by denigrating a competitor. There is only one way to find out, try the kite and the system yourself at a demo, I can assure you from my experience it's not the problem you might have been lead to believe, if it were, we'd know and be the first to complain. However using a bar from another manufacturer is rarely a good idea with any brand, brands spend a lot of time tuning their kites to their own bars, well, brands that worry about their consumers that is.

So try the kite, fly it hard, flack it out a couple of times and see for yourself, not to many complaints this side of the Channel, it's getting great feedback.

Rider an other bar on a kite, no problem. Your bar gotta à V low and safety on one avant.
However, I have 3 core GTS and i ride them with à core sensor 2s, and no problem with bar.
I like this bar
