Meet the new XR5 and experience the latest iteration in CORE performance. The kind of performance only achieved after a decade of incremental and innovative improvements. A process that thoroughly tests each iterative design change while retaining its character-defining DNA before moving on to the next. And in the end, building a power delta bow kite that unleashes pure freeride awesomeness.
Meet the new mega-boosting, addictive XR5 that delivers more hangtime than you can imagine. And did we mention the pillow-soft landings? This performance freerider has the goods for all your adventures. On the lake. Or on the Atlantic. It rips upwind, handles gusts (and lulls) like a boss and still retains the legendary XR character, comfort, and range that owners rave about. Core's product development team brought in former WOO jump world record holder Josh Emanuel to help make the XR5 what it is today. The South African worked tirelessly to fine-tune the kite’s incredible lift and hangtime.
With its new leading edge, strut, and wingtip design, you’ll find the 5th generation XR delivers unmatched control in the gusts and power in the lulls for relaxed cruising, explosive boosts, and sublime wave riding. But don’t take our word, though, and decide for yourself.
