Riot XR2 - The Crossride Kite - freeride, freestyle, race, wave
The CORE Riot XR2 Features Details:
Highest Quality Workmanship and Materials
CORE is renowned for using only the highest quality materials in their kites, such as the specially selected UV-resistant material used in their canopies.
At the cutting edge of material selection and innovative manufacturing, CORE will first dip fiber into a special coating before it is woven. The fabric is then heat treated to produce a “calendar finish”. In this way each individual fiber is sealed, resulting in a fabric that will not absorb water even after heavy and prolonged use. This is in stark contrast to fabrics coated much later in the manufacturing process.
Our production facility employs a sophisticated, zero tolerance, quality control, ensuring that continuous quality is achieved.
When you touch the kite lines you can feel the unmistakable quality of the material. All the lines and knots on the kite are “Made in Germany” and developed in part- nership with Liros, Germany. Liros lines are well known in Aviation sports, for consistent and perfect finishes, reliable stiffness, abrasion resistance, sensitivity and safety.
The back lines of the CORE SENSOR-Bar have a breaking load of 368kg at a diameter of only 1.8mm and are very user friendly when laying them out during set-up.
The Riot XR2 also has the proven Speed-Pump-System. The tube lies more aerodynamic and closer to the canopy which limits wear and in turn servicing costs.
Middle Strut: We are of the opinion that the middle strut should be „solid as a rock”. For years we have tried prototypes without a middle strut or with an “Infill-Floating-Strut“; only to confirm that flight stability suffers without it. As a result we have stayed with the tried and trusted: Why change a winning formula?
Our Canopy: There are competitors, which use marginally more stable cloth that is heavier. Like old US cars that have a lot of engine capacity, the performance still is not efficient on the road. The result, especially in marginal conditions, is a kite that falls faster from the sky and struggles to relaunch.
We, however, are not willing to simply use heavy cloth, but continue to focus on the perfect and intelligent processing of a lighter cloth, which gives the kite better performance, especially in underpowered conditions. The unprecedented low rate of complaints experienced by CORE kites is evidence that time-consuming seams, combined with meticulous production technology, cannot be substituted.

CORE INTELLIGENT TRIM SYSTEM
The rider can individually adjust both the bar pressure and the turning speed by using the "CORE Intelligent Trim System“ (CIT).
The turning speed is adjustable from easy handling to super agile. The bar pressure and feedback are easily adjustable from light to strong.
On delivery, the Kite is already ideally set-up for 90% of riders.
