Core XR-4 2015 Water Relaunchable LEI

5-Strut Frame :
The bombproof, five strut exo skeleton frame is a critical component in the XR5 design to stabilize the additional power created by our Intelligent Arc system. The struts feature new geometry and improved segment stitching that yields better strength, stiffness, and connection to the canopy without increasing its mass.

Core XR-4 2015 Water Relaunchable LEI

Short Bridle System:
The new short bridle system improves the, already quick, response of the kite to steering and makes for an extremely dynamic turning ability. The Riot XR-5 scores highly in waves with its agility and precise bar feedback. It allows you to feel exactly where your kite is at all times.

Core XR-4 2015 Water Relaunchable LEI

Delta Bow Shape:

The XR-5 incorporates the concave trailing edge of a traditional bow kite and swept back wings of a delta kite. The airfoil is engineered to send you upwind when underpowered,, boost bigger on demand and get you up and planing first!

Core XR-4 2015 Water Relaunchable LEI


Anti-wear patches where you need them. New, extreme abrasion resistant patches on the leading edge segment seams and strut attachment points will give you another level of protection from those beach hazards.

Core XR-4 2015 Water Relaunchable LEI

Speed-Pump System:

The distribution hoses of the One-Pump-System have larger diameters. The entry points to the struts have also been more aerodynamically distributed, making the air distribution system work more effectively and more comfortably, resulting in stunning inflation and deflation times.

Core XR-4 2015 Water Relaunchable LEI

Instant Relaunch:
If you happen to have a mishap on the water, don't worry. The new XR5 will be flying again in, well, "an instant"; thanks to it's optimized geometry. If you happen to eject, the SUPPORTED SINGLE FRONTLINE SAFETY will disarm your kite without hesitation, and will be waiting for you in the re-launch position. This makes it an ideal match for anyone; whether you're just doing your first water starts, working on your "Triple-Lindy", or getting barreled in Indonesia - you'll be up and riding again before you can say "CORE Kites Rock".

Core XR-4 2015 Water Relaunchable LEI

Sensor Bar System:
The XR-5 is perfectly matched with Core's brand new bar systems, the SENSOR 2 bar and the SENSOR PRO bar. They offer superior safety of the SUPPORTED SINGLE FRONTLINE SAFETY (SSF): The kite will be released, without pressure, on a single front line and with partial release on the other frontline resulting in the kite being automatically positioned in the optimum defined position for a re-start. Naturally, the XR-5 is also 100% compatible with all the older CORE bars.

User Rating:


The new Core Riot XR5 is the new generation of the cross ride kite with even more hang time, power and agility for freeriding and riding in the waves.


From freeriding to surf the 5th generation XR delivers control in the gusts and power in the lulls. Your ticket to relaxed cruising, explosive boosts or even sublime wave riding. Experience for yourself the XR’s ability to transform to any style or riding level.


The XR5 is designed to perform in all conditions and disciplines. Like the gusty conditions typically found on big inland lakes. Or fast oceanfront beach breaks. The XR5 is also designed to excel in one area, and for the XR5, it’s power freeriding, a catch-all that includes huge airtime and hooked-in freestyle mastery.


Although CORE’s engineers amped up the kite’s big air talents, the legendary XR comfort and character remain intact. The XR-5 kite continues to be an excellent choice for kiters of all levels. Beginners will appreciate the reliable sheet-and-go functionality, and experienced riders will love the XR’s huge range and extended hang times.


You are free to do what ever style you want with the Core Riot XR-5!


North Dice 2014 Water Relaunchable Kiteboarding KiteExotex Dacron:

ExoTex Dacron incorporates a new vertical thread structure and emulsion (protective coating) process. The stronger fabric allows Core to improve airflow by reducing leading edge and strut diameters.


Despite reducing strut diameters, ExoTex Dacron improves kite stiffness, flight stability, rider feedback, snappy pivot turns and explosive lift.


North Dice 2014 Water Relaunchable Kiteboarding KiteCore Tex Ripstop:

The fabric exclusively developed for CORE is protected and strengthened with three different coating processes.


In this way CoreTex® sets new records in load tests, tear resistance, longevity and UV protection. This is noticeable during your session thanks to the crispness experienced whilst flying your kite and another reason why CoreTex® was obvious choice for the Riot XR-5.


Optimised Aerodynamic and Intelligent Arc:

The inspiration behind the Intelligent ARC comes from nature: As a bird is able to glide without flapping its wings, for long durations of time, so to the Riot XR5 spreads its wings when the bar is pulled in.

This principle allows for a more powerful down stroke which assists with early planing. It also reduces shear forces. Upwind ability is also made more efficient as a result.

Conversely the projected surface of the kite is reduced when depowered, like a flying bird. This adds to the agility of the kite when depowered and allows for precise turns. This characteristic makes the Riot XR5 also ideal for riding in the waves.


Core Intelligent System:

Thanks to the CIT there is no riding style or level that the Riot XR-5 cannot be customized to.


The turning speed can be adjusted from “super fast" and "fast" to "medium". The kite feedback levels can be set between “direct” and "medium" to “super direct”. The bar pressure is adjustable between "super light" and "light" to "medium". You can customize the settings to suit within seconds.


Speed Valve 2:

Take a deep breath in, then out. The Core Riot XR-5 valve will accept all standard pump hoses without attachments.


This provides the SPEED VALVE 2 with the biggest, physically possible, flow of air. It’s simply not possible to pump up a kite with less effort and in less time. Even deflating the kite is noticeably quicker and easier too.



Core Riot XR-5 LW 15m, 17m and 19m:

The Riot XR5 LW (Lightwind Edition) allows you to enjoy even more days on the water. In addition to improved light wind performance the Riot XR5 LW stands for agility and pure ride joy, even when the wind is blowing at less than 10 knots.


The new Short Bridle System allows for a very direct bar feeling and dynamic feedback when steering the kite. This enables real kite loops, which were previously unheard of during light wind sessions.

The constant focus on light wind build methods gives the Riot XR5 LW its performance abilities in light wind conditions. As an example we use thinner tubes and CoreTex® Light-Fabric in our production. Despite being as light as a feather the sophisticated construction allows the kite to hold its own when the wind picks up.


Thanks to its dynamic properties, the Riot XR5 LW makes you feel as if you were flying a noticeably smaller kite, whilst topping it off by being an absolute Hang-time Machine.


Speed Profile:

The LW version of the XR-5 has a much flatter flight profile, allowing the kite to accelerate faster and produce its own wind, which is converted into additional propulsion. This design also allows for reduced wind resistance and unwanted lateral tension resulting in both Lightwinds going extremely well and effectively upwind. The turning speed of the XR5 can be adjusted at the kite tips. This trimming is easy and intuitive; you simply move a little knot.


Slim Struts:

The XR-5 Lightwind has thinner tubes than the smaller kites in the XR5 range and benefits from this in three different ways. Firstly the tubes have been designed using less material, so therefore less weight. Secondly the tubes are thinner making the kites more flexible, which in turn allows for a quicker response time to a rider's command and thirdly the tubes have been redesigned and adapted to have an optimum flight profile, which in turn lets you go upwind even earlier and effectively.


Ultra-Light Tips:

Core have reduced the heavier Dacron material to just a few areas in the tips, a small area behind the leading edge and also on the trailing edge. Basically all areas that are considered to need special protection during launching and landing.



Key Features:


  • Perfect for Freeride / Easy Riding / Hangtime / Freestyle / Wave
  • Direct and Fast Turning
  • Short and Direct Bridle
  • Easy Jumping Ability
  • Crisp ride experience and real kiteloops in light wind

Depower Control Bar

Core Sensor 2 Bar with Lines

Riders of all levels, from pros to newcomers, will all gain substantial advantages from the new Core Sensor 2 Bar System.


One of the most important aspects when kiting is how the kite feels whilst flying. What most people don’t know is that the bar system has just as an important role to play, in the way the kite feels, as the kite itself. The technical development of the bar is of particular importance for CORE.


When you take the brand new SENSOR 2 bar system on the water you will be suitably impressed. The SENSOR 2 bar weighs almost nothing, but is packed full of high tech and know how. It's as if it turns every kite on, making it more direct and providing better feedback, just as if your senses where fused with the kite lines. The SENSOR 2 bar shines with lots of innovative features that make it a high performance piece of equipment.


The Core Sensor 2 Control Bar comes with 24m / 368kg x 368kg flying lines.


230g Unibody Control Bar:
Development in Germany made it possible to reduce further the weight of the Unibody for the SENSOR 2, making it feather light and weighing only 230 gram. The result of this, thanks to the significantly reduced moment of inertia and the optimized leverage of the levelled bar ends, is steering that is unmatched in ease and freedom. This is the secret behind the unique SENSOR feeling: intensive feedback matched with playfully and precise control of the kite.

Core GTS-3 2014 Water Relaunchable Kiteboarding Kite
Titanium Core:
In the middle of the Unibody bar is the secret to the strength of the SENSOR 2. Thanks to the specially constructed titanium insert the SENSOR 2 is able to boast an extreme break load and stiffness whilst being as light as a feather. These attributes also result in the typical crisp flight feeling.
Core GTS-3 2014 Water Relaunchable Kiteboarding Kite

Exchangeable Bar Inserts:
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.

Core GTS-3 2014 Water Relaunchable Kiteboarding Kite

EVA Grip:
Thanks to the stronger 0.5 millimeter EVA-coating and more defined profiling, the SENSOR 2 offers noticeably more grip and during longer session the levels of comfort will definitely be appreciated.

Core GTS-3 2014 Water Relaunchable Kiteboarding Kite

Supported Single Frontline Safety:
Combining 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.

Core GTS-3 2014 Water Relaunchable Kiteboarding Kite

Sensor Adjuster:

The forces acting on the cleat adjuster are reduced to a quarter by the addition of another loop through the slide pulley, which results in the 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 now be easily adjusted to suit the size of the rider by simply moving the cleat adjuster.

Core GTS-3 2014 Water Relaunchable Kiteboarding Kite

Rotor Quick Release:
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 more compact and lighter design, while also bringing the depower adjuster closer to the riders reach – not only a comfort plus but also resulting in better safety in critical situations.

Core GTS-3 2014 Water Relaunchable Kiteboarding Kite

100% Self Unswivelling:
The self-un-swivelling of the CORE bars has been setting high standards for many years as it sorts the lines out in any and every situation without issue. 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 out again.

Core GTS-3 2014 Water Relaunchable Kiteboarding Kite

Spliced Line Ends:
A small but refined detail of the SENSOR 2 lines are the spliced line ends. They aren’t simply finished off and secured with a parallel stich, but rather eloquently spliced before being stitched. This guarantees higher strength and better aerodynamics – laying out of the lines is also noticeably smoother.

Core GTS-3 2014 Water Relaunchable Kiteboarding Kite

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 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 metres..

Core GTS-3 2014 Water Relaunchable Kiteboarding Kite

Short Safety Leash:
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 get regularly tangled in all and sundry.

Core GTS-3 2014 Water Relaunchable Kiteboarding Kite

Core Loop / Stick Set:
Even here we’ve been innovative. When unhooked the side mounted chicken stick automatically glides away from the center of the chicken loop, this ensures that the chicken stick does not get in your way when you want to hook in again. When hooked in this also prevents any unwanted unhooking from the harness. The chicken-loop, on the other hand, has one of the most all-encompassing optimized diameters.

Core GTS-3 2014 Water Relaunchable Kiteboarding Kite



Core Sensor 2+ Bar System - One Bar - 4 Line Lengths: 18m, 20m, 22m, 24m:


The SENSOR 2 bar system is also available in a plus edition. This edition 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 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 2+ 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.
