DER WUNDERKITE

XR. Any wind. Any style. A power delta bow kite. And now in black! For pure adrenaline pumping hangtime. A kite that delivers ridiculous whoo-hoos in any conditions. A kite that always has your back. 


CRUISE. RACE. BOOST.

From freeriding to surf the 4th generation, ExoTex equipped, XR delivers control in the gusts and power in the lulls. Your ticket to relaxed cruising, explosive boosts or sublime wave riding. Experience for yourself the XR’s chameleon like ability to transform to any style or riding level.

Technically identical, the new black edition delivers the same whoo-hoos as our classic white edition. The same comfort and high performance you expect from an XR series kite. How can we build a high performance all-rounder? With technological innovations like our flight control system, our unique safety system and our intelligent trim system. It is this kind of innovation that exemplifies the design team’s drive to create the perfect all-round kite. And the market responded, making the XR series a bestseller.

The XR4. A chameleon. A bestseller. And now available in black or original white.


Key Feature Snapshot

EXOTEX® DACRON NEW

Made in Germany. Exceptionally strong. Exotex Dacron incorporates a new asymmetrical weave and emulsion (protective coating) process. The stronger fabric improves airflow by permitting reduced leading edge and strut diameters. Despite reducing strut diameters, our new Exotex Dacron improves kite stiffness, flight stability and rider feedback. For snappy pivot turns. Explosive lift. And endless smiles. Hallmarks of the new XR4.

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.

Short Bridle System

SHORT BRIDLE SYSTEM

Short and sweet. The super short bridle system improves feedback so you can better feel your kite position. For precise, tight pivot turns. In the larger kite sizes, this reflexivity increases even more so. Just imagine a kite that practically anticipates every turn, as if it’s hot wired to your brain. This is the new XR4.

Intelligent Arc

Intelligent Arc is a bridle configuration that modifies the airfoil on demand in a linear and direct way. Like a bird that spreads its wings to generate more lift, the XR4 increases its wingspan with a pull on the bar. Likewise, sheeting out makes the kite fold in its wings and depower. Intelligent Arc. For precise, controllable, power and depower on demand.

XR4 - 5 Strut Frame

5 Strut Frame

The classic, bombproof, 5 strut exoskeleton frame is a critical component in the XR4 design to stabilize the additional power created by our Intelligent Arc system. 

Delta Bow Shape

The XR4 incorporates the concave trailing edge of a traditional bow kite and swept back wings of a delta kite. Our airfoil is engineered to rip upwind when underpowered, boost bigger on demand and get you planing first!

CORE Intelligent Trim System (CIT)

CORE Intelligent Trim System (CIT)

Kite speed and bar pressure is a matter of choice. Your choice. With fully adjustable back line tension, bar pressure and kite turning speed, our quick adjusting trim system gives you the freedom to ride any way you like. But don’t worry, the kite comes out of the bag ready to fly so you can play with the adjustments later.

Speed Valve 2

No special hose adapter needed here! The heavy duty Speed Valve 2 connects directly to any standard 20mm O.D. twist lock pump hose. The Speed Valve 2 maximizes airflow, minimizes inflation times and noticeably reduces pump pressure. The valve location also protects it from beach hazards. This inflation/deflation system is so good you may even leave your electric pump at home.

CORE Speed Pump System

Speed Pump System

Supersonic inflation! We re-routed and enlarged the speed-pump strut distribution hoses. We also designed more aerodynamic strut access points to make air flow faster into the bladders. We did this all for you because we know how much you enjoy inflating your kite.

INSTANT AUTO RELAUNCH

Instant relaunch really is instant! The XR4 is designed to immediately drift into a perfect relaunch position whenever the bar is released. Wave riders will appreciate how easily the kite releases from the water when time is of the essence. So go ahead and try that strapless 360, you know your XR4 has your back.

Sensor Barsystem

SENSOR BAR READY

The XR4 is fully compatible with the Sensor 2 and Sensor 2S bar system which features precise kite control and our unparalleled Supported Single Frontline Safety (SSF) system. The super clean design has no bobbles to interfere with your style and the ingenious no sag flag/safety line is more aerodynamic (and looks better!).

GRINTEX® Patches

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