Core SLC - more game changing

Postby grigorib » Thu Apr 01, 2021 8:30 pm

Core has made another revolutionary step in hydrofoil development - after extensive research of anisotropic properties of carbon it became obvious that aluminum is true target material to be used for foils.
Unlike competitors limited on their production to cheap carbon-based plastics, Core in its true dedication to their elite customer base is proud to present first in class, first-ever SLC foil aluminum wings.
Sturdy and springy, always the best, always first

Yawn!!!
You and the other three Core basher are so super anoying!! I cannnot stand it anymore!

I know that every brand has some lunatics who find salvation in bashing or trying to be funny.

I heard some really good feedback from riders who actually tried the Core foil... so I personally would´nt give a f.ck about you keyboard warriors opinions and give it a spin on the test events and make up my own mind... I surely will!
If it is super fun to ride, it´s worth the money..that`s how I look at things.

I just don’t like BS. XRs are awesome kites, GTXs are great too, I rode Core kites, I like them, yet I can’t stand them BS

Bars snapping in half, struts exploding, continuous d!ck measuring “who has the latest XR6”, aluminum isotropic properties, “you gotta ride the Core GTX to jump the highest” - Core marketing folks have exaggerated claims, bless their hearts, and are out of this world...
Go boost 40 ft. and I’ll respect your abilities, and maybe your kite

Happy April Fools’ day, thanks to all who contributed to make it possible.

Don't know about their other products but it always makes me smile when a brand that enters the foil game last claims to make you "foil better".

A bit of modesty and respect towards all the other brands who worked hard for years to bring foiling to where it is and from which they benefited wouldn't be out of place...

Doesn´t matter how good it is, the marketing will always be ridiculous. Personally I don´t give a shit about riders who say how good it is because there are still way too many Core-fanboys out there would even buy a muck heap if it would say "Core" on it and who haven´t even tried products from other companies. Core products are good, don´t get me wrong. But the hype around the company is over the top and it sometimes feels like a cult.

i just visited corekites.com for the 1st time..

outside them using the words "premium kites" ...why there would be core fanboys period... ?
the kites are cheaply made and heavy like all other inflatable leading ede kites.
maybe these heavy beasts were cutting edge in the early 2000s.... but nothing special on their entire collection in 2021

imo
