The Sensor bar system 2016

Light. Direct. Safe.

Some serious smiley face-makers here. Because all of our bars share genes from the original, and sensational, Sensor 2. The functional know-how we hide inside and the minimalist yet intuitive design on the outside give our bars the signature CORE confidence you expect. And the safety features you rely on.

The Sensor 2 bar is now joined by the new Sensor 2S and Sensor 2S Pro. Two new bars with more tech wizardry that you can’t even see at first glance. Regardless of your bar selection, The CORE Sensor 2 bar system will provide you with the lightest, safest, and most direct feeling bar on the market. Because we sell more than just cool bars. We sell confidence.

230g Unibody Bar 230g Unibody Bar

230G UNIBODY BAR

Made in Germany. The featherlight, unibody bar comes in at a mere 230g. The key to the Sensor 2’s light and super direct feel is found in its low mass and low bar-end height. Inertia is reduced and leverage is optimized. The Sensor 2 sports a deeply contoured EVA grip for long lasting comfort and excellent hold. The reduced diameter grip makes even gloved sessions more comfortable and less fatiguing. 

ULTRALIGHT UNIBODY BAR

Made in Germany. The featherlight, unibody bar comes in at a mere 230g. The key to the Sensor 2S’s light and super direct feel is found in its low mass and low bar-end height. Inertia is reduced and leverage is optimized. The Sensor 2S sports a deeply contoured EVA grip for long lasting comfort and excellent hold. The reduced diameter grip makes even gloved sessions more comfortable and less fatiguing. 

Auto Untwist Auto Untwist

Auto Untwist

Functional simplicity. Untwisting your front lines after looping your kite is as simple as pulling in the bar. Front line twists only occur below the Sensor 2 bar. A below the bar swivel unravels the front lines when the bar is pulled in. The days of manually spinning the front line swivel are over. Welcome to the era of auto untwist!

CARBON FIBer BAR

Yes, even lighter than our Unibody bar. Our carbon fiber bar reduces the already low weight to an unimaginable 200g. With the same breaking strength, the titanium reinforced, carbon bar is even stiffer than the Sensor 2S bar. Its low mass and low bar-end height reduces inertia and optimizes leverage. For perfect balance, control and response.

CERAMIC UNTWIST


Functional simplicity. Untwisting your front lines has never been easier. Front line twists only occur below the Sensor 2S bar. An improved, below the bar, swivel with hi-tech ceramic bearings unravels the front lines virtually on its own or whenever the bar is pulled in. The days of manually spinning the front line swivel are over. Welcome to the Sensor 2S era of super auto untwist!

Full TECTANIUM® LINES

Exclusively developed for CORE by Liros, the market leader in specialized aeronautical and sail cordage. The virtually tangle-free, no stretch, Tectanium center and steering lines are 400% more resistant to elongation and feature an unbelievable 50% greater breaking strength. To cap things off, the lines are 10% thinner and, therefore, more aerodynamic.

We don’t simply fold over the line and stitch it up. No, that’s cheating. We braid the loop before stitching and finishing for a safer, stronger, and more aerodynamic connection.

ROTOR QUICK RELEASE

The only 2-way quick release you do not have to think about. Releasing the kite is as simple as turning the mechanism in either direction for a simple, safe and intuitive process. It’s well known that more torque can be generated twisting than pushing or pulling. Unlike conventional systems, our quick release does not require you to overcome the flow of water. The Rotor sets the standard for ease of use, safety, and performance.

Another advantage of the Rotor over conventional push/pull systems is size. The Rotor is shorter, lighter and more compact than those other systems. All things being equal, a shorter Rotor permits a closer trim adjuster location. And who would not want to have a shorter reach to the trim adjuster?

Extra short is extra safe. The short safety leash comes standard with all CORE bar systems. When connected to your spreader bar, our short, 50cm long, leash delivers better ergonomics and safety. It is easier to see or grab and it won’t tangle like longer leashes might. If you do not see unhooked freestyle in your future, then protect yourself with a short leash.

Supported Single Frontline Safety (SSF) Supported Single Frontline Safety (SSF)
CORE Supported Single Frontline Safety


SUPPORTED SINGLE FRONTLINE SAFETY (SSF)

Exclusive to CORE. When the Rotor quick release is activated, the kite will fully depower and come to rest in a ‘drift launch-ready’ position (nose to wind) until you are ready. The benefits here are twofold. The kite stays put and does not want to relaunch into the sky. And there is no pull on the lines while the kite is in ‘drift launch-ready’ position simplifying the process of re-engaging the Rotor quick release. So how does SSF work and why does the kite not ‘turtle’ and stay in the air? The answer is that the kite does not flag out on one front line or equally on 2 front lines. SSF releases 100% of the back lines and flags the kite mainly on one front line. But sufficient tension remains on the other front line to steer the kite down. So in effect, it is the slight (unequal) tension on the other front line that prevents the kite from turtling and remaining sky bound.

The Sensor 2S replaces the front lines from the “Y” to the chicken loop with our exclusive, no stretch, Tectanium. And we protect it with a 5.2mm, UV-stabilized, Polyether where it passes through the bar. Techno speak for a really durable, self-lubricating, no pinch, depower line. The new, virtually frictionless, depower/safety lines are more aerodynamic, provide better feedback, and are more comfortable between the fingers. Just wait till you try it. You’ll see.

One bar covers all our kite sizes. From 4 to 19m! Nice. The Sensor 2 bar width is adjustable from 46cm to 52cm by moving one knot. The best design ideas are the simple ones. Switching widths is as easy as 1. Pull back the floater exposing the bar end leader. 2. Undo larks head knot on the back line where it attaches to the bar leader. 3. Pull on the opposite bar leader knot and reconnect larks head. Simple. And unbreakable.
