The XR7 is a member of the Universal+ Series of Kites. It can perform in all conditions and disciplines. These two letters, XR and XS have been synonymous with big-air performance and easy kiting for all over the past 14 years.
NEW CANOPY FABRIC ADDS MUSCLE
Our triple-ripstop canopy material has received a major upgrade after six years. CoreTex 2.0 features a 30% increase in tear resistance in both directions, a slight weight reduction, and a new coating that enhances flight, durability, longevity, and endurance. The canopy is further strengthened and stabilized by a new coating (emulsion).
Up to 8% Lighter
The new XR7 ExoTex Light struts reduce kite weight and maintain the XR7’s legendary canopy stability. CORE replaced ExoTex’s strut material by ExoTex Light after extensive testing. This is a lighter, more durable version of the industry-leading ExoTex airframe material. CORE is confident that the XR has been tested in real-world conditions for two years. The XR’s improved water starts will be appreciated by kite cadets, while surfers and foilers will enjoy the smoother drifting.
MORE PLAYFUL AND TURNY
Our testers have reported that the XR7’s overall lighter construction, ExoTex Light Struts, and marginally lighter canopy and iterational shape, as well as bridle improvements, make it more playful and turny than ever.
MAJOR UPGRADE AVAILABLE FOR XR7 LIGHTWIND EDITIONS
The XR7LW inherits the power and incredible wind range of the legendary XR7, but has weight-saving upgrades such as ExoTex Light struts or leading edge. While the weight of the lighter airframe is significantly reduced, it maintains its strength.
It has a rock-solid feel. CoreTex 2.0, which is a stronger canopy material, has been added. Kite weight has dropped overall. Kite performance is also up. Plan your next mission now and take control of the light wind skies.
