CORE FREE LIGHT WIND KITE
STABILITY AND VERSATILITY IN ONE
Not everyday is ideal. Like when your favorite weather app teases you with yellow as you pack your gear and jump in the car. Just as you pull into the beach, the forecast is downgraded. But you remembered to pack the new CORE Free LW in the trunk. And in ten minutes, you are on the water doing what you love with a wickedly silly grin and a few fist pumps.
This 3 strut, bow inspired, lightwind all-rounder lets you be you. In waves, on the slick, or in between. Rest assured, the Free LW will make a lot of new friends this season with its stump pulling, work inhibiting, awesomeness. Strapless riders will appreciate the insane drift and instant relaunch. Air-stylers and freeriders will drool over the incredible range and lift. Free LW. Don’t leave home without one.
CORE FREE INFO
3 STRUT LIGHT FRAME- Less is more. The Free inherits the GTS’s 3 Strut Light Frame concept which promotes more twist than a similar kite with five struts. More twist initiates faster turns and bigger grins. In addition, the reduced kite weight improves slack line drifting.
DELTA BOW SHAPE- The best of both worlds. The Free is recognized by the classic concave trailing edge of a bow; the swept back wings and smaller tips of a delta shape. This magic combination maximizes depower and control for early planing; upwind performance and, of course, big air. The shape also contributes to CORE’s signature precision, bar feel, relaunch-ability, and turn characteristics.
INTELLIGENT ARC- Intelligent Arc is a bridle configuration perfected on the XR series that modifies the airfoil on demand in a linear and direct way. Like a bird that spreads its wings to generate more lift, the Free increases its wingspan with a pull on the bar. Likewise, sheet out and the kite folds in its wings and depowers. Intelligent Arc. For precise, controllable, power and depower on demand.
ULTRASHORT BRIDLE SYSTEM- Say goodbye to bridle induced bowties with our shortest bridle system ever. The new configuration improves feedback so you can better sense your kite position. For precise, tight but not overpowering, pivoty turns. In the larger kite sizes, this reflexivity increases even more so. Say hello to the un-bowtie-able Free.
EXOTEX®- Made in Germany. And exceptionally durable. ExoTex’s new asymmetrical Dacron weave and emulsion (protective coating) process is specifically developed for our exoskeleton frames to prevent bulging, ripping and UV degradation. The no stretch fabric also improves airflow by permitting reduced leading edge and strut diameters. Despite reducing strut diameters, our new ExoTex fabric upgrades frame stiffness, flight stability and rider feedback.
CORETEX® TRIPLE RIPSTOP- Exclusive to CORE. Our, industry leading, triple ripstop canopy fabric is protected and strengthened with three different coating processes called emulsions. CoreTex sets new benchmarks in breaking strength, tear resistance, longevity, UV protection and elongation. Feel the tight, crisp signature only a CoreTex kite can deliver.
